    I'd go Sheene. I recommend going through Thurston Brothers and do a fit jacket as it's totally different than the BL/50's HB's you have been used to.

    I'd say Sheene too but definitely go with a fit jacket from Thurston. Going with a Seven would be another alternative but would also strongly recommend a fit jacket for a Seven as well as it's a completely different fit from a Sheene.

    Sheene or if you have the fit nailed on the HH, why not a 50's half belt? Similar enough to the Sheene but no guesswork needed on the fit!

    Haha nice. Do you prefer the 30s HB over the Sheene/HWM/Seven/etc. I don't own any Aero jackets and when I first started taking the deep dive into this leather jacket game, I was overwhelmed by all the different models offered. I'll eventually get an Aero but I've heard so many different things about fit and sizing. I really like the P HWM look. I have a bigger upper body for my frame and want a jacket with a tailored waist. So not sure which model suits what I'm looking for. Probably should have put the question out to the group lol

    I'm thinking sheene in cordovan CXL steer with quilted wool linning unless you guys think that would be to thick for a jacket fitted like the sheene

    You're not supposed to be encouraging me! Help my wallet out!

    I didn't even know that was an option! Sheene pattern with P HWM styling?

    A little but I'm thinking if I requested the waist to be brought in by 1-2 inch then I would have a better fit so a PHWM can work too

    yes, you can order that, if you clarify it by mail. Additional costs around 100 gbp if I'm not mistaken.

    Just my $.02 but I would go lighter for the lining. Wool tartan, or cotton drill or sateen. It's a farily close fitting jacket. +100 for the CX Steerhide! Excellent choice!
