Awsome jacket randy, great fit
Awesome jacket and fit. I suppose we should add our own photos to this thread of our own Ridleys/J106, right?
Dark seal Vicenza, antique brass, olive thread and cotton drill lining
Does the j106/Ridley always come with a D pocket?
Yes, Marker that was the intend! Not just my deal here but for all of us!
I really like your jacket here, looks great and I am sure it's great to wear...
So the Ridley is a Thurston Brothers collaborative jacket with Aero. It is similar to the Stock J106 but has many modification options. Might reach out to Carrie at Thurston brothers to see if it can be built without the D-pocket.
^^ that's good to know. Thank you, i will look into it. The Ridley for sure is a more streamlined cross zip compared to the stf bootlegger that I recently acquired.
Holly explained to me that Aero doesn't offer a Ridley model itself, as this is a special model exclusively for Thurston. If you want to order something similar directly from Aero, you order a "Motorcycle Jacket", which is then changed to a "Slim Fit Motorcycle Jacket". you can then configure it as you like.
Thanks, Got it. I ordered a cross zip from Greg so it might turn out to something like a Ridley but a bit more tamed. Or maybe one of those perfecto silhouette without the bells and whistles
a few quick pictures of the just arrived Aero Crosszip in Vicenza blackened brown and brass hardware.
Thanks a lot
Really very nice @MrProper!
Thanks a lot Boyo
How did the fit turn out? Looks pretty much spot on from here
Fits you very well from the pictures. I like it!
Just tried it on for the pictures but it looks like it's pretty perfect. Will take some good photos in the coming days when the weather is better.
Beautiful. I'm on the fence to get an Indian Ranger in the blacked brown Vicenza. I like the black with the bronze hardware, and I think the brown peeking through in the creases might be something special. so keep us posted with the wear. I'm curious to see how the brass shines with yours.
I like this particular blackened brown, its more brown than black or maybe it's just the photo on my screen! Looks great on you! Another one for the collection!
Your aim is sharp Mr P. You don’t miss! Jacket looks phenomenal. Spot on fit. Perfect!
This essentially resonates what Denny told me last year when I asked about the Ridley when in the showroom as admittedly I did find the situation somewhat confusing.
His explanation was that the Ridley was a specification/configuration that could only be bought through Thurston, however a similar jacket based off the J106 with the fit of a Board Racer can be made directly through Aero. Interestingly he also mentioned this was how the basic layout of the Hooch Hauler came to be.
Amazing result of your jacket, looks like you’ve got a more brown BB Vicenza!
Well, I think I have a fairly good idea what I’ll be asking for in a Ridley after my recent experiences with a competitor.
I am sorry they don’t carry the brown Horween Milan - it’s such a beautiful, rich color. It sounds like seal Vicenza will be the closest match.
What do you all think about adding a western yoke to the back?
