Aero/Buco J-100 is sold.

More photos and info at my Grailed store: https://www.grailed.com/gfarina55

Shipping is $12 CONUS on any item. I might be interested in trades for jackets w/slightly larger measurements than the G1 and J-100, or for Japanese denim w/slightly larger measurements than the 3001s.

Colimbo “Battery Park Navigator” Late 40s 55J14 (G1) Goatskin Jacket $800
Tag size 42. Soft goatskin, mouton collar, wonderful 40’s style G1/M422a from Colimbo. Slight wear around the zipper, otherwise very close to new condition. Retailed for over $2K in Japan, asking $800.

Shoulder: 18”
P2P: 21”
Sleeve: 26” including knits
Collar seam to end of knits on the back: 26”

Keep in mind these wear a bit larger than the measurements suggest because of the action back.

Colimbo Pathfinder Serge Jacket $275

Tag size 42. I tried this on in the Jelado shop in Tokyo and couldn’t resist the material and the incredible details of this jacket. The serge drapes wonderfully and you really have to see this in person to appreciate the quality and details.

Shoulder: 19”
P2P: 22”
Sleeve: 24.5-25”
Collar seam to bottom on the back: 26”

Aero/Buco J-100 $700
Fantastic replica of a Buco J-100 custom ordered from Thurston Bros. and worn sparingly. This Vincenza Horsehide is nicer than Shinki or other hides I've owned. It's not "plastic-y" or overly shiny like some of the Real McCoy's and Flathead versions, and you really have to see it in person to appreciate it. With the subtle olive stitching it really has "the look" and is an absolutely beautiful jacket. Worn sparingly with no flaws, just starting to feel broken in.

P2P: 22" (Note high arm holes on this cut. I don't think it will work for someone with a chest over 40" or someone with big shoulders.)
Back: 25.5"
Shoulder: 18"
Sleeve: 27”-ish, but wears like 26" sleeves.
For reference I have a 40" chest, weigh about 175, and I'm 6'1". This jacket is ideal for someone my size for a true "racing shirt" fit, but also might be ideal for someone a bit lighter if you want to use it with a flannel or sweatshirt underneath. Final pic shows how the jacket fits me.

One-piece back like an original J-100
Straight chest pockets
Black cotton drill lining
Olive stitching
Black Vincenza horsehide
Talon center zip, Waldez pocket zips
Inside pocket

Flathead 3001 Japanese version 34W $200
Rare version, only worn a handful of times. More photos and measurements: https://www.grailed.com/listings/12559909-the-flat-head-the-flathead-3001-japanese-arcs-34w

Is the P2P actually only 20.5" on these?

PM sent on the RMC fatigues.

Weekend bump

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 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

Buzz M-65 Medium $300

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"
