WTB vintage Schott 118 perfecto

I'm looking for a vintage Schott 118 perfecto (Black) size 52-54 (US) Regular, ιn a very good condition. I have a chest measurement about 54 "all around. If anyone has such a jacket available let me know.

Thanks

Just a little info on your search, vintage jackets run smaller then today's sizes, usually by a size. All motorcycle jackets taper in at the waist, approximately 4" narrower then the chest measurement. Not sure what your waist size is but if it close to your chest measurement or larger you would not be able to zip the jacket up.

GAIL, Thank you for the information.

Should I look for jackets from 1980-1990 until today?

The 118 has received updating through the years and some were done in the 80's & 90's. Sizing is hard in a motorcycle jacket because of the design, in vintage styles it is harder. Sometimes you have to just take a chance on a used jacket and the fit on you. I guess my best advise on a vintage jacket is to know it is about 1 size smaller, example a size 42 would be closer to a a 40.

Thanks again Gail,

I expect suggestions from people who has for sale Schott 118 perfecto, not necessarily vintage.
