    A Real McCoy's Japan Anj4 !
    If it is what I think it is, (there is no made in New Zealand tag)then this is a McCoys Japan jacket. These are very rare and I assume very expensive. It came up at auction over Xmas so I had to buy it if possible. The colours are different to the NZ version as the seal is more brown than black and it feels lighter and is more comfortable.

    Andrew,
    It's here, 3 days from Japan to my door, no customs hold up. Juno is amazing. Forget ebay, it's useless.
    Cost 750 gbp including postage and commission. The Japanese seem to be only interested in B3's or A2's.

    Great buy John. I Have only seen RMJ jackets with the McCoy marked repo Talon puller, so it should be from RMJ. I have the RMNZ one but have only seen pictures of the RMJ. Both of zipper pulls on my RMNZ ANJ -4 and M444 are marked Talon not Mccoy.

    Vic, from what you can see of the label would you agree about it being RMJ ?

    Steve,
    Very light and comfortable room for a sweater beneath. It's all about the materials, the sheepskin is very pliable and the horsehide is not too thick so arm movement is not restricted.

    That's a nice one, John. Well done. The material looks quite a bit like my Good Wear M-444 - buttery soft and an absolute pleasure to wear.

    Colour me jealous. I am lusting after an ANJ-4 so badly but I am completely broke. Nice catch on a lovely jacket.
