    Likewise, I’ve never even considered a light colour hide before, always been a seal or dark seal man. This is just strangely different - it’s going to take some getting used to.

    The character on that back panel says it all man. Absolutely beautiful hide.

    That looks absolutely amazing! What a great looking leather and the fit is perfect.

    I’ve never considered the August before, but seeing how it fits on you makes me really curious about it.

    Marvelous jacket and fit! I'm certainly intrigued by this pattern.

    I know Aero recently built an August in their new batch of Midnight Blue FQHH and posted it on their IG page.

    Lovely hide; puts me in mind of how the 'natural' undyed hides turn out after a couple of years in the Sun. Lovely figuring on the back too. Almost looks like croc!

    Was it you was talking about an Aero Indy recently? While they don't do one, it strikes me looking again at the August that it's pretty damn close if you add patch pockets on the front and delete the halfbelt. Even moreso if they dropped the yoke by a few inches down the back of the shoulders, and brought the action back out to the side-seams at top and bottom -

    Course, it could be that last bit where you'd run into problems; Aero are generally very open to reasonable tweaks here and there, but I know they are, fairly, not keen on significant alterations to the pattern.

    Just realising looking at this thread that this jacket with patch pockets in front would be closer the Indy than the Royale. Maybe if the mouse wants to give Indy a new jacket, this is where they could start. ;)

    Looks really great and couldn't hope for a better fit.

  9. Great fit and style with a no hands in the pockets pose that shows it off well. I have a Teamster in this hide that draws lots of complements. Unique.

    It was seeing your Teamster that first had me even considering this hide, a stunning jacket by the way and my all time favourite longer half belt styles. Tan isn’t colour I would normally go for but it is a very striking hide, quite unique, I’m just struggling to find clothes to go with it at the moment. The Teamster is definitely on my radar for the future, just need to find a way to sneak another jacket past the misses.

    Just up for sale in the classifieds, not wearing it as much as it deserves.

    What’s the difference of the campfire label? The collar more pointed? But not as slim as the Premier?

    I’m happy to be corrected but I understood the campfire label was just another alternative label design that Aero uses from time to time. Nice to have in your Aero jacket collection if you haven’t yet got one.

    I want a Sunburst jacket in battered tan.

    I can resist until I've sold the Stockman, and perhaps even then...

    The campfire label is just a different label- they'll put it in if you ask.

    Thanks!! The August, albeit yet another boxy pattern, does look more premium with the new collar shape & new Bakelite fish rye buttons
