    Wanted an AERO, got a DOUBLE HELIX 1930 style

    @jr30 This jacket looks great on you. I may get one myself (in a different color). Visually, the fit looks very nice. How does it FEEL? Is it tiring to wear for an extended time? Can you move and bend reasonably? Have you driven a car with it on? Thanks!

    Double Helix Works?

    To me, the fit looks really good on you. Better than your Hugging Curve. How do the armholes feel though. Tight? I've been eyeing this jacket as well. How's the quality of the collar?

    Double Helix Works?

    I've been so close to buying the jacket over the past year or two. It's interesting that the "A" cut/silhouette of your black jacket is more noticeable than on the indigo version. https://www.thefedoralounge.com/threads/wanted-an-aero-got-a-double-helix-1930-style.113632/ It must be the same...

    Wanted an AERO, got a DOUBLE HELIX 1930 style

    Both versions of the blue leather have a white core. They both have a very Japanese "bouncy" feeling. I say "Japanese" because I've often heard this description by Tokyo store owners when describing high quality leather. The turquoise swatch I have is thicker and seems like it will be harder...

    Double Helix Works?

    Wow, this is the review I've been waiting for. I can't believe I just found this now-- this is what happens when I get too busy for FL. Thanks for posting. Oh yeah-- How functional are the hand warmer pockets? Are they placed on the jacket where you can easily slip your hands in without...

    Do you know the contact info or instagram of Avenue? I can't seem to find it.

    SOLD : RMC Nelson 44 MINT

    I missed out. I wonder why Rainbow doesn't make something like this-- it's a classic style. Double Helix uses those same side buckles...

    What Is the Allure of Japanese Leather Jackets?

    I guess we're seeing different things. Or at least focusing on different things. What point does this prove again (not being snide)? The jackets with the smaller drops look like jackets with smaller drops... because they have smaller drops. Okay, maybe I'm being a little snide, heh heh...

    What Is the Allure of Japanese Leather Jackets?

    I forgot to ask, how was the weather in May? Did you like that month to travel?

    What Is the Allure of Japanese Leather Jackets?

    Japanese style "Fit" -- narrow shoulders, chest, sleeves may soon be a thing of the past. Look at the current generation of East Asian men under 40. They are bigger. Average height and weight is way up. Nutrition has not been an issue for these guys. Shohei Ohtani anyone? Another of my...

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

    Yeah, I noticed the price increase as well. RC is venturing into RealMcCoy price point.

    What would you tell your former self about ordering a custom Aero?

    Well said-- the neck pressure starts slow, but ends with vigor. Also, super heavy CXL horse is not the best choice for a comfortable fit. Stick with veg tanned.

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

    Yes! Their customer service is very good so far. And international shipping seems to be included in price. Not an issue if you're in Japan already... But I wish I could try it on first as well. The 44 seems to be on the borderline of too small-- it measures about 22.5 pit to pit. I'd...

    I was going for Highwaymoo. Enjoy it!

    Reservation for a Rainbow Hercules. Good thing about being older... Xmas comes faster every year.

    Style for not so fit body

    You would think... but I find my highwayman accentuates my girth. The bad kind of girth.
