    That's a perfect jacket and fit right there. I just love it! The leather and obviously the design(One of my favorite Aero patterns).

    I wish my 50's half belt fit in the waist was as tight as in yours because it flares a bit for being a bit wide on me.

    Bloody Photo Bucket. I can tell you for nought, I won't be signing up to their service. They've ruined endless threads around here with their stupid decision to pull public access to existing posts.

    When I mailed Aero about red fox just a few weeks ago, they told me they didn't stock it?

    I believe it's a Thurston Bros exclusive. Bummed to open this thread and not be able to see Benny's jacket!

    This isn't the same as Benny wearing his jacket, but these photos will give you an idea of the leather texture and color. Hopefully Benny will come back soon and re-post fit photos!

    Aargh! Curse you Photobucket! I've tried to upload the photos here again, but I'm getting a message saying the files are too large for the server to process, which I've never had before.

    The jacket is a work of art that sadly now hangs in the closet awaiting next autumn and much cooler temperatures for further wear. It's heating up down here!

    Look forward to seeing how it's evolved Benny. If you snap pics on your phone and email them to yourself and select small file format they'll post here. Have to be under 1 MB.

    OK I tried resizing them down a bit. Here are the original pics

    Tony, it's a helluva tough jacket. I've worn it in some pretty brutal weather - heavy rain and wind etc - and it's barely started to mold to my shape yet. I reckon give it another season of good wear and it'll start to get a bit of life in it beyond the 'suit of armour' look!
     
  13. Looks great and 'Perfect' fit...!!

    It's a standout colour for sure. The cowhide is as thick and substantial but not as stiff as FQHH. People tend not to want to touch my FQHH halfbelt but for some reason whenever I've worn the Sunburst people have helped themselves to feeling the leather, as though it's from a comfortable old sofa or something (it does look very smooth). This can be good when the curious individual in question resembles Agent Carter, not so good when they look like Mr Bean.

    More like worn and beaten it into submission, I'd say Craig! Which of course quality leather jackets respond to quite well.
