My grandfather used the barrels from his old muzzle-loaders as fence posts... he figured they were worthless after he got new guns. I almost didn't believe it until I saw a fence-post with a nipple for the percussion capWhen my great father died, I was not present to empty the house.
I later learned that my parents and my brother had donated old handguns "because it was old, it was not worth anything"
When I learned it was a charity seller I contacted them to say the jacket was over valued. They gave a very civil reply to say they had all been on a course and it policy to follow issued guidelines on pricing from internet values. The correspondent agreed the price was too high.Hmm, well I stuck a stupid low ball offer of £500 and they’ve accepted..... I’ve absolutely no idea if a 40 will fit me (normally wear a 40, but is the fleece in this likely to mean I’d need a bigger size) or indeed if I really need it.
Given the choice I’d probably add an inch or two, but I can get away with it. In the photo I’m wearing a BR jumper which ive pulled down, so the jacket is basically sitting on the waist of my jeans, which are also sitting a bit low.I'm going to be a party pooper ad say it looks a little short
Im about 6ft. This is a size 40 jacket, but I also have a B3 in size 42, so tend to drift between few sizes (probably bigger after all this lockdown inactivity.....)Out of curiosity how tall are you.I own the same jacket but a size 44,,love it & having snaps is a bonus.
