Buzz M-65 sold

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

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:

W. 17.5
11 FR
15.5 BR
9,5 Kn
8.75 Hem
36 Inseam


TCB 60s 13oz. 34w, unhemmed, $150

One hot soak, worn around the house for a few hours.

Actual, post-soak measurements:

34 Inseam

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"

Love my 400Rs. Back rise is really low but somehow they work.  You have to be really committed to a 50s straight leg cut though.
