    not too bad, not too bad at all. a classic bronco. by your measurements, the jacket it pretty close to a size 44, as you said you needed. interesting, as my original bronco in a size 42 is smaller across the shoulders, and pit to pit, while the over all length is a little longer.

    Silver,
    I think that, it's a big 42.
    Perfect fit for me.
    The zipper work perfectly.
    The knits are very tired.
    I don't know how wash the collar?
    Thank you.
    ;)

    not much that you can do about the collar. it is discolored due to sweat, hair tonic, and body oils absorbed over the years. many collars that are darkened like yours tend to crack and rot out at the fold if they have not been stored and tended well. if the disoloration really bugs ya, you might try some detergent rubbed in and dabbed off. the next possibility is nail polish remover, or acetone on a q-tip, and rub it on an area. you will remove some of the discoloration, but since it is deep in the leather, there will always be some discoloration.

    Ludospeed thanks for all the pictures , I really do like the color of this leather .
    The name tag under the name does it have his service number .
    Did you purchase this in Europe and was it from a dealer or an individual .
