Evening folks, A slightly different thread from the normal that I’m hoping you can help me with. Ive owned two Aero Leather Board Racers and whilst both have been impeccably made jackets, there’s always been ‘something’ that wasn’t quite right about the styling. Both jackets were specced based on the Buco J100 jacket which is a very common option and I’m sure probably fill a large proportion of the Board Racer orders but as mentioned, something just didn’t make them spot on for what I was looking for and I couldn’t quite put my finger on why. Fast forward to today and the itch to fire another order to the crew at Galashiels when I stumbled upon details of a jacket that looked very similar to the Buco J100 but with a few neat details that made it look far more interesting………The Brooks Gold Label cafe racer! Obviously the design cues come from Mr Joseph Bugeleisen himself! Anyway back to the topic, my intention is to spec a Board Racer in the styling of the Brooks which shouldn’t be too difficult considering the BR standard back panel has a split-back with kidney panel and the only tweaks needed to the design would be horizontal chest pockets and zip sleeves on the seams like their CR design. Now my question is more towards people who currently own a vintage Brooks in either size 38 or size 40: can you possibly measure it up and let me know the dimensions? I’m mainly interested in the sleeve length, body length, chest width and shoulder width. Also pictures of this jacket are always welcome!
