@TooManyHatsOnlyOneHead That's why Brown CXL is one of the G O A T. The finishing, pull up, is truly unqiue. The stiffness can be cured by either thinning or always have a warming option near by. @Salmosalar Can't wait to see your Baddy with the shearling liner. Did you get quilted lined sleeves? I would think a setup like that is a lot easier to wear than full shearling jacket, and just as warm. @Edward I think depending on model, the Aero moto jackets aren't as tapered as the Elvis photo. The only one that I know has that kind of drop is the Indian Ranger. The Dayton or J106 is actually the same as the halfbelt, just one inch shorter. It's unfortunate the market is changing the heritage brands in different directions. Crombie is one of the best example. Stilled closed and uncertain what's happening next. After some look through, I had come to another assumption. There is actually only two pattern blocks with Aero. The regular Aero line (1950's and 1930's are the same), and the Japanese STF line (higher armhole than the standard, and so the slimmer sleeves). I don't have enough 1930's models to confirm this. But the one I have has the same fit as the 1950's jacket in a smaller size, arm hole wise. Can members with both 30's and 50's jacket confirm that the arm hole height fits the same in different sizes. And this would make sense for the manufacturer. To have just one master block to tweak from. The only two things for tweaking would be neck hole size and hem size. But this also create a lot of opportunities for quality control issues. My guess is that Aero's 50's Size 40 = 30's Size 42 = Japanese 44. Half belt is 26" Long, and everything else is one to two inch shorter depending on design. The hem width will vary base on the design of the jacket. And the neck holes is suppose to line up with the corresponding tag size, 17" for Medium, 18" for Large. But this has been what I assume the biggest quality issue Aero has that has caused all the trouble.
