    Apologies in advance to anyone who owns a Barnstormer, but look at this delicious thing that you don't own:

    Living in Japan wouldn't be so bad I don't think.

    It looks like a clone of Aero's shawl collar Barnstormer.

    That is nice. What colour is the sheepskin on it? It looks like a beigey gold type colour. Either way I want.
    It's actually reasonably priced for what is is and where it comes from, 1700 euros or so.

    Looks real nice, I like the leather and mouton color, but I actually prefer Aero’s shawl collar barnstormer. Don’t like the cuff straps on this model at all.

    I really like this. Certainly reminiscent of Aero's Barnstormer or the old Herc Barnstormer. My personal preference tho is for the single breasted version. Like Aero's Blizard:

    Or this grail JcPenny (much prefer the flap-less pockets):

    I agree. Single breasted is better imo.

    I think the Real McCoys wins. I’d feel like a hoodlum in one of those though. ‘Why you not got my money?’

    For some reason I associate these jackets with an older generation, maybe at some point I saw an elderly person wearing one, I don’t know. It’s ironic, given that the designs of all of our jackets date from the fifties or earlier.

    There’s a beautiful one on the Aero sales page, brown FQHH.
