689h h stands for happy
I just received my 689h from a vendor on eBay, apparently the only person on earth with a size 44 in stock. Incredible jacket, I could not be more pleased. As everyone has stated, shiny and stiff but who cares it's an amazing jacket and I love it. I now have an inseparable companion when I ride the motorbike. A note about sizing, I wear a size 40 suit coat and own a Schott 135 size 40 that fits me perfectly. As recommended I ordered up a size to 42 and found it to fit pretty good but just a tad tight and short in arm length, It would be impossible to wear a sweater or fleece underneath it. Fortunately my vendor had a 44 in stock and shipped it out to compare. The 44 fit much better, longer sleeves and room for a sweater underneath. I'm not a big or tall guy, 5'10 and 170 pounds. Regardless, the h stands for happy.
