    Purchased from Thurston directly after a 6 month wait for the midnight blue horsehide.
    I received this jacket in April this year. Very supple. Has hints of green, grey and blue.
    I am 5 feet nine inches with a 44 inch chest and 32 inch waist. I weigh 185 pounds. It fits me trim and perfectly. The fit photo's demonstrate the fit on my son who is 5 feet eleven inches tall, 190 pounds with a 42 inch chest and 34 inch waist.
    Below is the original order. The back length is currently about 25.5 inches, shoulder is 18.5 inches, pit to pit about 22.5 inches and the sleeves are 26.5 inches.
    The leather is amazing in smell and texture!

    Sweetfights, why this CR looks so roomy and baggy around the torso from the back?
    I mean, to my taste its front look is absolutely nice - but from the back it looks a bit too roomy around torso.
    Is that the key feature of all CR's from Aero or is that a special thing which relates to this exact item?
    The leather looks really interesting.

    On me there is way less extra material at the lower back. Maybe because my chest starts at 44 then tapers down it works out there is a little less bunching because leather is pulled up. But I am shorter and wider than my son right now. I thought it looked amazing on him, better than on me actually.

    Got it, thanks. That's a bit strange actually, 'cause it's a bespoke jacket which was custom made for you according to your personal measurements. I thought it should fit excellent when it's bespoke custom made jacket.
    I guess that its fit isn't great because of its length, which looks far too long for CR pattern.
    It's quite trim at the waist area (exactly as any CR usually is), so it might be bunching at the lower back because of that combination of trim waist and length of the jacket. It possibly should fit excellent to a tall athletic person.
    Anyway, its leather is a special thing really, very like its colour.

    Also, standing and posing gives a different look as opposed to when moving around and riding a motorcycle. Also, only the sleeve and back length are modified, the basic design remains the same.

    My son also has a butt that sticks out from weights and football making the bottom of the jacket catch. If he had a flatter butt the jacket would likely fall straight down.
