Since a similar used jacket did not make $350 on eBay last time, the "generous" offer to sell it to a member here at nearly a 300% markup from the last sale is, well... offensive to me. Like I said, unless I missed something somewhere which is entirely possible. I am not saying that the jacket is not worth every penny, but the market does not look like it will currently support this price. Maybe I am just defensive, but I have the best interests of the people here in mind, believe me.

They think it was the lighter Police blouson, but they weren't exactly sure (it was actually his other half I spoke to, rather than him). Those Police blousons are rarer than hens teeth. Even rare than the Bison Hero.
Anyway, to answer your question, yes I have the Large in the Police blouson (winter) and the XL in the Hero. And, rather surprisingly, the Police blouson feels bigger. The Hero is a slimmer cut and the Police blouson (intentionally) a boxier fit. The torso of the Police fits rather like the Dark Knight. The Police is a slightly longer jacket than the Hero.
As a very rough rule of thumb, and this is very rough, with Belstaff blousons you go up one size on the jackets. But it is at the end of the day if you like your jackets tight fitting or not (personally I like a bit of room to put one extra layer on underneath). Oh and to really really confuse things more, Belstaff apparently alter their sizings on the SAME jacket! I was joking about this with the Manchester Belstaff staff - the summer X-Large "M blouson" and the winter Medium "M blouson" fit me the same. It's hard to believe, I know, but I've had them both on and was baffled myself.
Tom Cruise's "M blouson" in MI:3, for example, looks very tight fitting, but then again he was jumping off buildings in Shanghai and attacking a terrorist base in Germany in his, I wasn't planning on doing that myself.
