    Thanks Bobj! Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours and all the leather heads here on TFL. I'm hosting this year so I've already been up for two hours hoping to avoid:

    I laughed when I read this post because at the same time you wrote this I was reviewing the final details for my new Thedi jacket and confirming that everything was in order with Carrie.

    Yeah, you don't want a dried out bird like that, you want something succulent and juicy like this:

  12. I'm a newcomer to the site and a latecomer to this thread. I have recently started discussions with Aero in the U.K. about ordering an A-2 jacket in russet jerky. Is there an advantage to working with Thurston Bros? I like the idea of a fit jacket, which I think has advantages over just taking one's measurements. I am particular about the color, and Aero's web site has the exact jacket (with a 10-12 week wait).
  13. Our customers love the fit jacket process that we use...it makes it easy to get the right body fit and set the sleeve and body lengths to your proportions. You can read more about it here--https://www.thurston-bros.com/pages/custom-aero

    You'll get leather samples along with your fit jacket so that you can make the final decision with the materials in hand. You can contact us at sales@thurston-bros.com for more information!

    I started w aero, then went with Carrie at Thurston.
    She is so good, asked a million questions, called and emailed. Finally narrowed down exact jacket I wanted after thorough research. Fit jacket was a must for me, had to see the hide, fit, color etc... in person.
    My jacket lands very soon, so excited!
  15. So I pulled the trigger today with Carrie at Thurston Bros., and the process begins to purchase an A-2 to my specifications. Carrie does indeed, take a lot of custom care, and seems quite intuitive. I'll be receiving a fit jacket and I've already given her my measurements.

    This is getting exciting. I feel like a kid at Christmas. Except I'm only a kid at heart!
  16. Dazzling custom Aero STF Bootlegger in a Two-Tone Black and Cordovan FQHH configuration! Love the custom patch pocket and modified back! The STF Bootlegger is a great option if you want a slim version of the traditional Bootlegger. Contact us sales@thurston-bros.com to inquire about the fit that would be right for you!

    Me too. Cordo and black is absolutely killer.
  19. Here's an easy gift idea (for someone else or yourself ;))--our ACE belt in Russet or Black! The details are incredible on this reproduction belt and the materials (both the buckle and the leather) will become more beautiful with wear and age! We have these belts in stock in sizes 34-42 and you can order custom sizes.
