    Himel: An Existential Review

    I actually think your experience doesn't sound so bad. Nov to April IMO doesn't sound bad at all, especially considering the Covid situation (and yes, I get that you were told sooner). Mine took a heck of a lot longer than that. And the fact that your jacket was perfect out of the box and it...

    Aero jackets worth it?

    I should have emphasized that the curve to the sleeves on Aero's Board Racer is much more pronounced than the curve to the sleeves of a lot of other jackets with curved sleeves. For example, between their Board Racer and Cafe Racer, the Board Racer had more of a curve

    Aero jackets worth it?

    I had one of their Cafe Racers in CXL and it was the most uncomfortable jacket I've ever experienced. It's cut so that it's most comfortable if you're on a bike and in the riding position. But it's otherwise terrible. There's a curve to the back of the neck and collar that make it great for...

    Aero jackets worth it?

    LOL, that is so true. There's something about the way they are cut that distributes the weight of the jacket inefficiently. You especially feel it with the heavy CXL

    Broken Stitch

    Just noticed one of my jackets has a single broken stitch. It's at the bottom of the rear hem so not in a crucial spot, or in a spot where there's frequent movement or flexing of the stitching. I was wondering if I should bother with getting it fixed. What do you think guys?

    The Hunt for the Least Restrictive Leather Jacket

    Avoid the stiffer leathers such as CXL FQHH. If you must have horsehide look at Aero's Vicenza, or Shinki from another maker, etc. And if even those are too stiff for you, look into cow or even goat or deer hide offerings. In terms of Aero, some of their patterns are unforgiving, and add their...

    <<< age appropriate jackets >>>

    Most 'old guys' dress horribly. They either lack taste or have stopped caring and only want to be comfortable, and will wear whatever was cheapest at Costco or Burlington Coat Factory LOL.

    <<< age appropriate jackets >>>

    no, it's a classic style that anyone regardless of age, shape or size can wear, as long as the fit is good. The only time these look corny is when it's a cheap faux MC type jacket like you'd find at a place like H&M or at the mall etc. But one from one of the brands that gets talked about here...

    Japanese brands rejecting Shinki

    How are they? Have you handled these makers jackets from previous years, and if so how did the new ones compare?

    Japanese brands rejecting Shinki

    I've read a few comments on this here and there and was wondering if anyone knows the full story...that Freewheelers, Rainbow Country etc had smaller than normal production runs the last couple years due to the lack of acceptable quality leather coming out of Shinki. Understandable due to Covid...
