    Howdy all,

    I just got word from Aero that my custom jacket shipped today. I asked them to take some photos before shipping so that I could show you guys: Jacket Front Small.jpg Jacket Back Small.jpg

    Type: J-106
    Size: 38"
    Leather: Natural CXFQHH
    Customised:
    King Of The Road Back (Yoke, and hidden belt)
    Indian Ranger Throat Latch
    Brass Hardwear
    Zips with Brown Tape
    Olive Drab Thread
    Blackwatch Weathered Tartan Lining
    Inside Gun Pocket - zip closure, pull down to close
    Car, Bike, Plane Aero Label
    Standard 25.25" Back
    Standard 25.5" Sleeves
    [edit: Confirmed by Sam, standard 38 all around, so it should be easy to reproduce for anyone that's interested--nothing is longer or shorter, it's all standard 38]

    More pictures on arrival, but I think it's pretty sweet--I haven't seen *any* pictures of a light-coloured J-106, and I do think that this build is particularly handsome! What do you guys think?

    Also--what should we name this Frankenstein? :p

    Cheers!

    -F

    Awesome I'd call it, and I'm not a biker/cross zip wearer, but that one says "buy a bike Nick".

    nice jacket, but the title of the thread is somewhat offensive - probably unintended I'm sure, but putting a swear word next to the word Indian does not read well......I have no clue what its referring to

    If it were mine I would refer to it as: "My new Kick-Ass leather."

    Are many people offended by this? I live in Europe, and nobody cares, so it's hard for me to judge what a faux-pas is in North America. If everyone is super offended even though offence was not my intent, perhaps the mods can change it.

    The only thing I'm offended by is the fact that this jacket is 20X cooler than anything I've ever owned and ever will. Absolutely brilliant combo of parts between the j-106 and an elvis. Stunning!

    How is that offensive? He didn't write "Indian Bastard", he wrote "J-106/Kotr/Indian bastard", which means the love child of all the jackets mentioned above...
    There is literally nothing offensive here!

    Because everyone is offended by everything today. I'm offended you had to ask why it's offensive!

    Btw, kick ass jacket!

    I'm not the 'easily offended brigade' and I'm not trying to start a squabble, apologies if it comes across that way.....but the language is somewhat jarring, thats all......

    Yeah, seconded.

    And here I thought there's nothing else in this jacket business that'd ever leave me impressed. It isn't something unseen but the way they've pulled it off... "HOLY SH*T" was the first thing that popped into my mind when I saw this.

    Sam said that he was excited to make it, and that the King of the Road back is his favourite :) As, for me, the J-106 has the most distinct front, the King of the Road back seemed like the obvious choice if going full-busy, and as I plan to wear this jacket all year round, throat-latch is a must.

    @Guppy, I'll measure when I get it, but it's whatever the standard J-106 pit to pit would be. For reference, my "Relaxed Chest" measure for the jacket was 103cm – 40.5”, and "Expanded Chest 105cm – 41.5”--but none of the measurements I provided necessitated changes to the off-the-rack measurements.

    FTR, I'm:
    183cm tall
    75kg
    82cm around the fattest part of my belly, but at order time, my measurements were:
    Stomach 92cm – 36.25” // Waist 89cm – 35”

    Thanks. Based on that, I'd likely need to go with a 40, or perhaps 42. Which is not surprising. Time to start saving up...
