It appears the 689 HorseHide is backordered until end of January!? The reasoning being that the leather supplier has not supplied Schott the raw materials in a timely manner, and that it then takes 4-6weeks to produce a bundle of jackets. I have heard that this is true for size 40,42,44. Although size 40 and 44 are listed on the site store, so not sure what that means. Just want to get the info out to anyone who is pursuing this product.
