What non-Indy Wested Leather jackets do you own?

My love of leather jackets began when I bought my first Wested in 2008; an OTR Raider in goat. Since then Ive developed quite a collection, mostly Wested, mostly Indy, but recently Ive added a few iconic non-Indy jackets to the collection, starting with a Skyfall a couple of years ago, a Wolverine Origins this summer, and I currently have Rocketeer on order.
Inspired by Emtiem`s recent posts regarding his new Skyfall, I`m wondering how many other Raveners have been tempted by Wested`s other, non-Indy offerings...

Those look great on you. I tried a different Wested James Bond Jacket but the fit was way off.

I was thinking about a Skyfall but would need to order the XXL which I assume is a 48 from the size chart ending with 46 in XL. Thing that concerns me is the sleeve length and back length. My Indy jackets are a 48 or 50 with a sleeve length of 27 and a back length of 27-28. The size 48 fits me fine but get a 50 to layer under. The chart for the Skyfall already has the sleeve length for a 46 (XL) at 27.5 and a back length of 27.5 as well......

That Wolverine looks very nice; when you say distressed hide is that cowhide? Is it nice and heavy?

Yeah, pre distressed cowhide. Very soft, drapes really well, fairly thick and heavy. Feels substantial.
