Buying and Selling / Aero/Buco J-100 40, Samurai S0500 34w, TCB 60s 34w
« on: September 02, 2019, 04:50:21 am »
Free CONUS shipping on everything but the J-100. Always looking for trades in similar sizes. Try me!

Aero / Buco J-100 Black Vicenza Horsehide size 40 $750

It kills me to let this go as it's the nicest cafe-style leather jacket I've ever owned, and the horsehide is just something to behold. This fits me like perfectly w/a T-shirt, but it's rare that I can leave the house w/just a T-shirt, so it just hasn't gotten much wear. I custom-ordered this through Thurston Bros. a couple years ago and it’s softened up significantly, but it’s still not completely broken in. For reference I have a true 40” chest, I'm 6'1", 175 lbs. I wear Iron Heart shirts in Large, size 16 Real McCoy’s & Mister Freedom shirts. I would trade this for something ever-so-slightly larger or with a more forgiving cut, otherwise $750 net to me firm. I'm also happy to offer a 48hr approval w/shipping at the buyer's expense, as I have no doubt that this jacket will make someone very happy.

P2P 22 (note high arm holes on this cut)
back 25.5
Shoulder 18
Sleeve 27”-ish, but wears a bit shorter because of elbow creases

  • One-piece back
  • Straight chest pockets
  • Black cotton drill lining
  • Olive stitching
  • Black Vincenza horsehide
  • Talon center zip, Waldez pocket zips
  • Inside pocket

Samurai S0500 15oz. W34, unhemmed, $200

One hot soak, worn around the house a few times and they’re a size too big. (They’re Sami's so they already show slight signs of fading.) Actual post-soak measurements:

Buzz M-65 Medium $SOLD

Like new, only tried on at home. Tag size Medium, fits a bit large for a Japanese jacket. Professionally removed the useless, bulky internal hood as I've done on every M-65 I've owned, so now the collar looks like it's supposed to. (Hood is included and can be easily reattached.) Measurements according to History and Preservation Society:

Chest: 22.5"
Shoulder: 18.5" (outer shoulder is around 19")
Arm: 25.5"
Back: 31.5"

Samurai 710 24oz. 33, unhemmed.

Some initial creasing and fading, roping around the hem, and some loose stitching around the pockets, but otherwise in great shape and just starting to break in. Not sure that I want to sell these because they’re impossible to get, but I have the opportunity to size up so I though I’d see if there are any takers. $250 shipped CONUS.

BR: 14.5
Inseam: 35
Hem: 8”

Iron Heart Hombre Check Western Flannel XL w/silver threads

If anyone knows the IHSH # of this shirt, please let me know. It’s a unique and beautiful lighter flannel fabric that actually has silver threads woven into it, although the silver doesn’t show up in the photos. The shirt also has unique smoke-colored snaps. Worn a few times and hand washed once, no flaws or wear. Unfortunately a size too big for me, but I’d trade for IH shirts in L. $SOLD shipped CONUS

Pure Blue Japan XX-013-VTG 14.5oz. size 34, unhemmed. This is PBJ's new VTG/Vintage denim and it is AWESOME. In the same vein as Flathead's vertically-fading denim, and photos don't do it justice. These have one hot soak and only a few wears...slight wallet mark and slight creasing behind the knees, but near-new. PBJs taper just doesn't work for an old man like me. Would trade for XX-005s in 34. $175 $160

I'm always interested in trades for IH shirts (Large), Real McCoy's gear (usually 32-33w bottoms, 16/42 tops), and Samurai, Full Count, IH, PBJ, Flathead, Strike Gold denim.

I will ship internationally but I only go to the post office once, so I take a deposit, provide a receipt, and refund the difference.

Great pair of 301S-14s that are just starting to fade. They are clean, well cared for, and have no spots or stains. Fantastic denim with tons of character. http://www.selfedge.com/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=1578 $135 shipped CONUS or trade

Aero Italian Vicenza Front Quarter Horsehide FQHH Board Racer 42
Lots of photos: https://www.icloud.com/sharedalbum/#B045qXGF1sWwtz
Absolutely stunning Italian Vicenza FQHH…photos don’t do it justice. I am the original owner of this amazing jacket, and it pains me to part with it but I’m ultimately looking for something a bit different. I’ve worn it about 10 times and there is some creasing and minor signs of wear, but it’s still very new and just starting to break in. I am 6’ 1” with a 40” chest and a 34” waist and it fits me very well, although there is some room in the torso. Actual measurements:
Shoulder: 18”
Pit to Pit: 22.5”
Bottom opening: 21”
Sleeve: 27” (but the sleeves shorten a bit w/wear)
Back collar seam to bottom: 26”
$750 net to me

Going, Going, Gone.... / FSOT: IH-666S-21 34W original hem
« on: April 02, 2016, 08:55:02 pm »
Really bummed about these...they're just starting to fade and break in, but they're just a bit too tight in the thigh. No flaws, original hem, would possibly trade for something w/.5" more in the thigh and waist. Otherwise $230 shipped CONUS.

Measurements are on par w/IH: http://www.ironheart.co.uk/bottoms/ih-666s-21.html


Size 9, 11cm knuckle, 9cm middle finger. Great gloves but they fit snug and are too tight for me. More sizing info here, but mine are the rare William Gibson black version: https://www.historypreservation.com/products-page/brands/buzz-ricksons-usaaf-type-a-10-winter-flying-gloves-camel-tan/

$100 shipped CONUS, all others pay actual shipping.

Amazing jacket, warm enough for Chicago winters, just a size too big on me. No flaws or spots, some wear and fading evo. Measurements are the same as the IH Web site: http://www.ironheart.co.uk/extinct/ihj-14.html

IHSH-62 Wabash Stripe Indigo XL, New with tags, $SOLD + shipping. Measurements & info: http://www.ironheart.co.uk/shirting/ihsh-62-ind.html

The shirts below have been worn only 4 times and are too big for me. They are basically new with no signs of wear. I’d trade for similar shirts in smaller sizes, or for Iron Heart shirts in XL. Sorry for the bad photos…they don’t do these fine shirts justice.

Measurements are P2P x Shoulder x Sleeve. CONUS shipping only is $10.

Buzz Rickson’s blue chambray, SS, XL tag size: 23.5" x 19” $80

Sugar Cane Red Cord Stripe LS, XL tag size: 23" x 19" x 25” $100

Lost lots of weight, so my “loss” is your gain. I'd trade for these in smaller sizes, or for 33-34w Japanese denim (slim cuts), IH shirts in XL, and the like
