    That fit is definitely spot on.

    The jacket is looking really great, and the fit is bang on. Congrats!

    Looks excellent! What's the size?

    P.S. I suspect the jackets that Aero sells to Insurrection are of the slimmer Japanese specs, can anyone confirm this? And of course, you get the Buco tag as well.

    Size 38, but it's definitely larger than the 38 fit jacket I received. I'm not sure about slimmer versions for Insurrection - I believe they helped develop the "premier" lines, which are slimmer, but I think the Board & Cafe Racers are the slimmest fitting jackets from Aero. I love that Buco collar...

    There was talk for years that Aero were developing a "Japanese fit" that was going to be slimmer than even the slimmer patterns they already have. I guess this was in response partly to a fashion demand in the Japanese market, and perhaps also the fact that Japanese men are generally slighter than those of us in the West, at least insofar as one can make such a generalisation. Sicne Ken came back and developed the Premier patterns, I think there's an element of that being realised there. I don't know if they make alterations to the patterns per se for Insurrection, but it's certain true that since Insurrection first had a presence on here and probably long before, the preferred house style in Seattle is 'second skin'. They advise customers to 'size down' at least a full two sizes on a standard Highwayman(!), for instance. Some of this will be to do with the large proportion of jackets Insurrection sell that will be worn on the back of a motorcycle (a neater fit meaning it stays in place and does its job as abrasion-protection better in the event of an off.).

    In any case, this jacket turned out really well, and it looks great! Interesting Insurrection have a label on it too (in addition to the licenced Buco label that goes in some Aero jackets instead of the Aero one).

    I love that style of jacket, on other people not me (it doesn't fit my bod). Yours looks great and seems to fit great. Congrats.

    Looking at such great fit I feel blessed for my beer belly. It saved me a couple of hundreds of euros. Congratulations.

    Good eye Edward! I hadn't noticed that and that's not present on any of my Aero via TB jackets. Must be something new. Cool label.

    Beautiful jacket and one of the best fits I've seen in a while. Plus, the style suits you well. Now, two things to remember: 1. every now and then you have to take it off; 2. (excessive) beer, cookies, and peanut butter 'n bacon sandwiches (Elvis) are verboten.

    Yeah, that Thurston label is only for Vicenza (I wanted in my FQHH and Carrie explained). I did have them sew the regular Aero label into the right inner vertical pocket since I went with the Buco at the neck. Can't have too many labels (when they are this good looking)!

    Damn man, that’s one of the nicest I’ve seen in a loooooooooong while! Please don’t wear anything else anymore and show pics of the jacket every once in a while here. I am curious how the leather develops when someone actually wears a jacket...

    Would you mind telling me what's the name of that tartan lining? It's awesome.
    Also, the sleeve lining, is it red rayon?
    Cheers!!

    Very nice jacket. Thanks for the detailed pics. I have an Aero on order with tartan lining as well so it's nice to see a semi-preview of what I will be getting.

    Absolutely, it's Aberdeen lightweight tartan with wine cotton sateen in the sleeves. It feels amazing - like a second skin.

    I would not suggest a heavier tartan or cotton drill in sleeves on Vincenza - the leather is so supple you wouldn't want a heavy lining interfering with the feel of the leather. Also, the medium weight (and probably heavy) tartan has a rougher feel & less sheen. Hope this helps.
