    Aero Leathers Board Racer Size 38 (Custom)

    This is an Aero Leathers Board Racer that I had custom made. It was one of the first 4 jackets to be made with the Black-over-brown Vicenza Horsehide. I absolutely love it, but it fit so much like a glove when I bought it that now that I’m a bit bigger it’s too tight for me. It’s been through a motorbike accident so it has a cool story to tell. The only damage from that is very minor and can be seen in the pictures of the right elbow.



    Features:

    • Vertical inside pocket on left side, no closure
    • Gusseted zip cuffs
    • Ball & chain pulls
    • Brown cotton drill body lining and black sateen for sleeve lining
    • No kidney panel



    Measurements:

    • Shoulders (seam to seam) - 44cm (17.3 in)
    • Chest (pit to pit) - 54cm (21.25 in)
    • Sleeve (shoulder seam to cuff) - 65cm (25.6 in)
    • Length (base of back collar to waist hem) - 60cm (23.6 in)
    • Waist (measured flat across bottom hem) - 46cm (18.1 in)

    Aero Leathers Premiere Highayman Size 38 (Custom)


    This is an Aero Leathers Premier Highayman that I had custom made. It’s made from the Seal Vicenza Horsehide which has really gotten quite soft. I really love this jacket but unfortunately I’ve outgrown it’s size. It’s been broken in nicely and has some nice patina showing and some wear in areas (see photos).

    • Vertical inside pocket on left side, no closure
    • Gusseted zip cuffs
    • Diamond chain pulls
    • Olive cotton drill body lining and black sateen for sleeve lining
    • Side cinching D ring adjusters
    • Standard Highwayman yoke instead of premiere yoke
    • Modified smaller collar


    Measurements:

    • Shoulders (seam to seam) - 43cm (16.9 in)
    • Chest (pit to pit) - 55.5cm (21.8 in)
    • Sleeve (shoulder seam to cuff) - 64.5cm (25.3 in)
    • Length (base of back collar to waist hem) - 59.5cm (23.4 in)
    • Waist (measured flat across bottom hem) - 47.5cm (18.7 in)

    Oh man these are two beauties. The black brown vic is stunning. That leather behaves very much like the black CXL overdye from the looks of things.

    I haven't seen any Vicenza look like these yet. How hard are you wearing them? Or did you do something to them to make them so amazing?

    I don't know if it's specifically an August collar. I think it's an individual pattern of a smaller collar that isn't dedicated to any model in particular. The good thing about smaller collars is that they make the chest and shoulders look bigger, which for guys is obviously a good thing.

    Haha. Well done.


    Well I crashed a motorbike in the Board Racer so - that helped show some brown. Also I don't TRY and preserve them the way that some people seem to. Some people like them to look new, albeit broken in shape-wise, but I live for the patina. So I let them get wet in the rain if I happen to be caught in the rain. I don't moisturise them afterwards etc. I'm ok with leaning against a cement or brick wall in it and getting a couple scrapes.

    The titles of the posts with the detailed info are links and so is the Bold names of the jackets at the end of the original post.



    Everyone, the Board Racer has been sold at asking price. If you like the Prem Highwayman I'd get in asap as I do think the asking price is quite decent and it might not hang around long.


    Thanks!

    Man! Wish i did computer better. Someone got a steal. I wasn’t 100% on the fit but for that price I’d gamble.
