East West Musical Instruments Buffalo Leather Jacket, Lined, Custom For Me In 72

I'm one of those guys who "saves the best 'til last," and that's why you're now looking at my buffalo jacket, made by Karen Carr in about 1972 or 73, a seamstress at the East West Musical Instrument Company here in San Francisco. I'd already had her custom-make a goat jacket for me (my last East-West offering on , item 200921777448) and had fallen in love with that. So, I asked her to make me something that was a little less "motorcycle-ish" and away we went. It was her idea to make it out of buffalo, and when she showed me the hides she was going to use there wasn't any further discussion! As you can see, she selected each piece ever-so-carefully for its grain characteristics; and then magnificently and expertly sewed each piece into place. The grain on that upper back panel is totally to die for! As had been the case with the goat jacket, I didn't want it lined -- in my opinion the feel of the skin/hide itself is ultimate, and I don't want that sensation interrupted by lining. So, of course this jacket is not lined. As it turned out I only wore the jacket a few times, and of course everyone fawned all over me when I did. Stored very carefully in the meantime, the leather is still extremely supple and "fresh." Basically, what you're looking at is a brand-new jacket! Measurements: At the time I was about a 36 or 37 (in terms of a suit) and as you can see (I'm modeling it in the pictures), it still fits me pretty well. The measurement from the shoulder (where it meets the sleeve, on top) to the bottom of the sleeve is 24 3/4 inches. From that seam on the left to that seam on the right is about 16 1/2 inches, and from the top of the collar in the back to the bottom is 29 3/4 inches.Buyer to choose shipper and level of shipping service and to pay for shipping and insurance based on realized price.
