Wow!! I am once again left speechless by Aero’s ability to totally surpass all my expectations and nail a jacket so incredibly down to the ground perfect. As much as I hate to bore the forum with another blue jacket thread I think this one bears reading for a larger or more athletic built guy looking to go with a premier pattern. I was a bit scared on this order b/c it’s a totally unfamiliar pattern and I chose to order direct. Denny, as usual was great to work with. Originally I was going to drop the waist to a 42” but he cautioned me against that and we settled with a lesser 1” drop. Great call as a full drop would’ve been too much. I’m 5’11 210lbs (little fat post vacation) and spec’d a size 44”, 1” waist drop, 26.5” back, 26.75” sleeve. Nickel hardware, OD liner and stitch. Board racer sleeves, hookless (scary!) zip and slight chest pocket angle increase. While the premier pattern is certainly more trim it doesn’t strike me as overly so. The jacket still allows a nice range of motion, without gussets or a full AB. The collar is love. It’s hands down my favorite part. I love the back yoke too. I know it’s supposed to be a 30’s jacket but in this blue and config’d this way...I’m the baddest undercover weed cop in this town. Here are some jacket pics. I won’t post my usual garbage fit pics. I’m giving this puppy a full blown photo shoot with props. It deserves it. It’s 107 in Chicago today and set to stay that way for a couple days. So fit pics will have to wait. I will say it’s the best fitting jacket, Aero or otherwise, I’ve ever owned. Bottom line is you don’t need to be rail thin or narrow shouldered for the premier pattern. Thanks to Denny and a special thanks to Julie Leitch, who never ceases to amaze me with her unbelievable mastery of this craft. She is the first Jedi. No doubt about it!
