Curious if you still have this item…I noticed it didn’t sell on eBay. The jacket’s sweet and I love Klinkerfues. I’m interested in purchasing if still available. Let me know if you are able! Thanks!
I do still have it, but it’s in storage 2100 miles away from where I am right now. Probably won’t have access to it for another six months or so.
Okay, I’ll make sure to get in touch in about six months! Otherwise if you are able to get to it sooner and remember me, you can send me an email at pkrausert AT gmail DOT com.
Thanks for the quick reply!
