    Hello dear Bombing,
    The number has been deleted.
    Last Monday, I posted an announcement about the Eastman group. And on Tuesday a guy answered, posted some pictures and the description.
    I contacted him, and he told me he works at Aero leather.
    He gave me the email of his boss.
    On Wednesday the jacket was paid and sent.
    Sorry for my bad english.
    Thank you.

    Nice Bronco. Congratulations. Are you happy with the length of the sleeves?

    You know me, if it were mine 1" would be coming off of the sleeves.

    Andrew,

    I think it's too long.
    Should I cut them?
    But it's an original.
    Maybe not a good idea?
    And where found the same knit, in same color? Waistband too.

    I would not recommend shortening the sleeves on this original. You just need to grow your arms at bit!LOL

    Ah, ok Andrew, Laugh.
    What I do?
    And where found the same knit, in same color? Waistband too.
    Thank you.

    Leave well alone. Shortening the sleeves on this original will spoil the integrity of the jacket and devalue it if you decide to re-sell.

    Yes, I think too, dear Andrew.
    Thank you for your advice.
    And where found the same knit, in same color? Waistband too.
    Please.

    Why do you need to change the knits? Unless they are completely shot I would just repair the original ones.

    Agreed. Leave this as an original. This is why so many begin the search for the "perfect fit". You may never find it. You have found a nicely preserved original!

    Andrew and dmar836,

    I'll try to fix them.
    They have already been repaired.
    But with fabric inside.
    I will sew to another knit inside, this will strengthen and tighten the original knit.
    :)
