    The Google translated blurb reads:

    A short jacket with belt. Therefore, it is also a lot of women, because they can be pulled tight just above the pelvic bone, and therefore it still looks sexy when the jacket's shoulders should be slightly too far. Because in general, the larger the bust of a woman, is (according to the focus then the jacket size, must) be more clearly perhaps this too disproportionate to the shoulder width of the jacket, since these little grows.

    Detail: the sleeves end like a shirt with a button

    For men: for example for moped's a little too short. We can, however, make an inch longer if desired.
    Hilariously woeful translation. Don't much like the jacket - like the Winward it seems too short and squat to my taste.

    We should see it worn by a guy IMO.

    The wonders of Google translation.

    Well, I'd best not get on the moped, then!

    PS. "Hey, guys - let's spend like ten seconds setting these pics up - and then they'll look REALLY crap............."

    If it was a little longer with zip sleeves, I could really go for it.

    I think Aero are open to adjusting the length a little

    Will look ok on an Indian Chief with a pair of those tally ho style patrolman's jodhpurs And some high leg boots.
    I really love it, but I think lengthening it will take away the classic cut

    If it's 23" it's still wearable with a pair of Levi's 501....with studs under the collar and zips on the sleeves it would be a great bike jacket.

    As is often discussed on here, a "short" jacket should just cover the belt on your trousers. As I generally wear vintage cut Lee Riders, which have a relatively high waist, I am sure I can get the right length whilst preserving the "look" of the jacket.

    I'll post pics when I get it, but based on Aero's current backlog, I guess that will be late summer 2013!
