    Vegecow Lewis Leathers quality

    My worry is it seems to be a bit of a pattern emerging, not just a one off - I have had numerous exchanges with Rip and his predecessor over the years, with no emails going ignored…until last month, which seems to align with the recent ghosting you have had. So sonething seems to have changed...

    It was a simple query about whether the Cyclone and Lightning had a front drop or not - should not be rocket science for a response - in the end I posted the query on TFL and got the answer I needed in a few hours. LL never answered….needless to say I am wary about their competence at present...

    I have also had no response to a query I sent to LL on 12th April….seems their customer service has fallen into a black hole….

    I would agree with Marc - it seems that up to mid 70s at least the quality was generally high and consistent - after that it became much more patchy. On the issue of thread, I have not seen any busted seams from rotten cotton on any LL jackets, but maybe others have a different experience? I...

    Aero Rockafella

    I agree - the extra cinch makes it look like a ladies jacket tbh….

    I am also concerned about the dip in service since Rip left - I sent them a query about fit for a new jacket on 14th April and not heard anything since. This is v unlike how it used to be and I am wary of parting with any money on a custom order unless they improve and get back on track to the...

    2022 - the year of suede?

    Here are a couple of shots of both sides - photos do not really do it justice - the suede side is a rich chocolate brown, of similar tone to seal I would say. The smooth side has classic deerskin graining - it reminds me somewhat of LL sheep but the deer is not quite as thick. Really nice...

    2022 - the year of suede?

    Yep - I have a sample of that deer too - definitely a dark chocolate on both sides….tempted to go for suede-side out when my number finally comes up on this one….

    2022 - the year of suede?

    I have been tempted by this but I came to the conclusion that the pattern won't work for me as it is wide (and padded) in the shoulders but narrow in the P2P so even with a custom number it seems a bridge to far for me - might be worth checking as it seems quite a different pattern from the...

    2022 - the year of suede?

    I have this Aero custom cross zip made up (based on the Ridley /J106 pattern) using the same goat suede they use on the Majestic - its a beautiful hide - drapes really well and lovely hand - I had the mouton collar added to avoid the griminess that can accrue on high wear areas - I like the...

    Thanks Marc - that is incredibly helpful!! Hmmm…decisions, decisions! Just out of interest, which of those three patterns you have is your favourite - what are the key pros and cons of each? Cheers!

    Hi Folks - I am planning on another LL but going for a crosszip this time - I was wondering if you had any insights in the amount of front drop (or lack thereof) on the Lightnings, Cyclone and Super Monza? I seem to recall seeing a graphic on FL somewhere actually showing these side by side but...

    Aero Board racer, hand warmer pockets or not?

    It might be worth asking Aero to make the chest pockets deeper as they are pretty shallow - I have done this on all my custom jackets so they can take my iPhone or wallet - the standard size is too shallow to be of much use imo. They are then actually easier to use than handwarmers and more...

    Aero Board racer, hand warmer pockets or not?

    I also prefer this style without handwarmers - less is more with the BR!

    Vegecow Lewis Leathers quality

    The side Side buckles don't really have that effect as they are placed at the base of the jacket near the hem, unlike halfbelts that have them higher and can cinch in that way. The lower side pulls just pull in at the base rather than giving a true taper - often creating more of a balloon...

    This is the plain unquilted red body liner in the Dominator, fyi….

    Vegecow Lewis Leathers quality

    You can get the quilted lining just as the plain material, without the padding and quilting - just the cotton - I asked for that in my Dominator for warmer weather wear - it is in the same red material. That might be what you want tbh? The nylon is only an issue in the sleeves if worn with t...

    Vegecow Lewis Leathers quality

    A word of warning about the nylon - it is quite an open weave, so is more breathable in that sense, but also v scratchy on bare skin - not ideal for a t shirt fit - the satin sleeves are a far better bet I find. The nylon would be better for riding and with long sleeve t-shirts. I have both...
