Measurements and Item Details:

Fits like: Men's XS, women's small

Brand: Perfecto Genuine
Condition: Distressed/as is, with light wear, wrinkling, minor discoloration and some nicks along the edges throughout, tears and discoloration throughout the lining (see photos), two tiny holes on the lower back of the left sleeve, and part of the fastener for the Harley pin is missing so it isn't totally secured shut. There are seam gaps throughout (specifics listed below), all zippers still work besides the main central closing zipper:

Central zipper: a 3" tear at the bottom left of the zipper where the teeth have torn off so the zipper isn't functional.
