    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.

    I went for brown cotton drill lining (it doesn't get that cold here, not like in the USA or England). Also a photo of the wrist straps, which I really dig.

    Both me and the jacket look lopsided in this photo, and yet I hadn't been to the pub . . . must've been a long day!

    That is stunning. Love that colour, perfect for the Sunburst.

    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.

    Thanks gents. It's a rich honey brown colour in natural light , thick but supple leather. I'm enjoying it immensely!

    Benny, that is a gorgeous jacket! I can imagine this jacket with a nice Fedora to complete the look.

    Very sharp looking jacket. Couldn't ask for a better fit either.

    Wilbur you're reading my mind! I was only thinking this afternoon how it would look with a fawn Stylemaster or my Whippet in natural felt.

    I'd pay a lot (if I had any money left) to have this leather on my new car seats.

    Luverly. I have one of these on my list, in russet goat. Beautiful design. Just don't wear it when you're playing chicken near a cliff edge, yeah? ;)

    Did you mod the hand-warmer pocket angle?

    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:
