I'm sharing some photos I posted on the Thurston Bros/Insurrection thread here of my long-awaited acquisition, an Aero Sunburst in Red Fox medium-weight steerhide. I'm going to thoroughly enjoy molding it to my form; it's not stiff like horsehide, per se, but it will still need a good breaking in period to sit right.

Just got home form work, unfortunately it was dark outside so couldn't use natural light but the pics still pick up the rich tones of the honey-brown colour.

That's a beauty, first time I've seen this hide, rich colour and a nice change from the usual seal brown. Would love to see how medium steerhide breaks in, could be very special.

Nice ... that should break in really nicely ( the big advantage of steer over horse IMHO ) and will only get better with use.

Wear it well.

I've said it before and I'll say it again everything about this jacket positively reeks of quality and oozes all kinds of style. I love it. You SLAYED it man.

Edward, I considered russet goat for a Sunburst when the design first came out. I'll be sure to wear a jacket without cuff straps on my next chicken run! :)
Handymike, I requested normal handwarmer pockets, the angle of the standard Sunburst pockets is the one element of the design I don't like.

I'll definitely get some fedora shots up for you Wilbur!

Thanks again for all your kind responses gents, it's all your great jackets and photos that inspired me to get this one. :cool:
