    Aero Leather sizing

    I have the aero hooch hauler and indeed the sleeves on it are kind of wide. The premier half belt I have has slimmer sleeves. (Also narrower shoulder). Maybe consider a premier bootlegger with a custom chest pocket to achieve a similar look as the hooch hauler.

    How many new jackets do you have coming (and how many potential ones)?

    So for a vintage jacket if one wants to cover discoloration on the wrist etc should I just use a bit of similar colored urad alone? Not sure where I could get urad though. Does Fiebings have anything similar to urad?

    How many new jackets do you have coming (and how many potential ones)?

    I have VSC too but I can only get the natural color. Not sure if they do different colors. The saphir crème has a little dye/pigment in it so I figured I might be a little better for hiding marks. Before the crème I use VSC/ renovator for conditioning if I feel the leather is dry. Renovator...

    How many new jackets do you have coming (and how many potential ones)?

    Does anyone have experience using this Saphr crème to restore jackets? It’s mainly used for boots and dress shoes. It works well to mask light scuffs and to give it a light shine for boots in my experience. Can’t get urad where I am at. The Saphr is probably quite similar?

    Dyed Vanson Jacket Black

    Unfortunately I don’t have access to these products at where Im located. Mainly fiebing’s stuff is available. Seems like tan kote and resolene are quite similar and should work I guess

    Dyed Vanson Jacket Black

    Is it necessary to apply a coat of finisher like Tan kote or resolene to prevent bleeding or give it some light sheen?

    I personally do not use the chest pocket at all . It’s just bothers me with how it looks visually. It’s shaped like a used hand pocket with a bit a sag.

    Freewheelers vs. The Real McCoys vs. Vanson Cross Zip Jackets

    I see. Maybe the pattern with action back helps a bit. The new c2s I’m looking at are longer in the body at around 23.5”. Maybe yours is a custom or just the older ones are cut shorter?

    Newbie question here. I made a design mistake when I was getting a custom jacket made which I decided to not use a zip on the chest pocket. When the jacket is new the pocket looks fine but as the jacket becomes more broken in the pocket kind of deformed and constantly pops open which bothers...

    Freewheelers vs. The Real McCoys vs. Vanson Cross Zip Jackets

    @dudewuttheheck I think I read in your review that your vanson is a sz 38? If so does it have a p2p of about 21” and back length at around 23.5”? With your chest at 41.5 does it feel restrictive at all?

    Freewheelers vs. The Real McCoys vs. Vanson Cross Zip Jackets

    Looks amazing on you! May I ask what is your height and chest size? I’m 5,8 40” chest and wondering if a 38 would fit me. Found a size chart on a Japanese site. A 38 might be a bit tight Im not sure.

    Freewheelers vs. The Real McCoys vs. Vanson Cross Zip Jackets

    I don’t normally pay too much attention to off the rack jackets as most are too long for me. But it seems like this vanson could work as we share similar height and chest size. But the product pictures don’t look nearly as good as Jake’s pictures. Are the early versions better?

    Freewheelers vs. The Real McCoys vs. Vanson Cross Zip Jackets

    This makes me want to get a vanson c2. It looks so badass. Anyone know how does the new c2s compare to the older ones in terms of hide and fit? I have checked out their website but they look kind of different. It seems they are cut longer in the body and the sleeves don’t look as trim?

    Footwear to go with our jackets

    Shoutout to Rizky at Onderhoud. Just received the engineer remake made with the Maryam 1071 Horsebutt overdye black. The leather on the first pair I received was bad. Grain was really loose on the left boot across the entire vamp as soon as I put it on. This second pair seems to be much better...
