    Hey guys,

    It’s been awhile and I thought I’d wrap up my loose ends and post pics of my new Aero Board Racer. I ordered from Carrie & Wade (Thurston Bros.) at the beginning of August and it arrived last week.

    I posted pics of the fit jacket on another thread and really liked the rock and roll fit/look of that one, but was concerned it might be a little small in the long run. I’m completely blown away with what arrived. Almost every worry point I had turned out perfectly. Moira Mac was the machinist and she exhibited super-human skill in the making of this thing. I couldn’t be happier - I can’t wait to wear it!

    Huge thanks to Carrie, Wade, Moira & everyone at Aero! What absolutely superlative businesses both Aero and Thurston Bros are. I’m thrilled to have discovered them.

    Thanks to everyone here for all of the excellent advice and input I received in my decision making period. Enough blabbing, here’s the jacket: :D

    Cheers all!

    Wow man. Fantastic looking jacket, Literally a PERFECT fit. The hard part will be ever taking it off. That's just plain awesome.

    Thanks for the kind words! I totally agree, it's sick. I love my Premier HWM but this thing is another universe entirely! I'm so glad I have them both... ;)

    That looks amazing and is a perfect fit. REALLY like the color combo with the brass hardware and contrast stitching color. And that lining is fantastic.

    The flat seam in the back should be great for comfort against chairs.

    Is that in Vicenza horsehide?

    Yes, it is. Dark seal. In certain light it looks chocolatey brown and then in other, it looks cooler. The jacket on floor pics show grain and shine much better than the fit pics. It's beautiful leather, I'm really happy with how it turned out.

    Super nice jacket - the lining is very festive and the fit is ideal. It's a keeper for sure so I doubt we'll ever see this jacket in the classified section or on eBay.

    Good results; I love that color. Fit is quite a bit different from the Highwayman, eh?

    Moira has made one or two of my Aeros and she did a very good job.

    Nice touch on those Zippers. Aero has the best linings, really makes the Jacket yours. Nicely done.
