Looks great HD. I wish my teamster had fit like that!
I have to congratulate you. You really have a nice collection of leather jackets. You dress in a casual way, but I really like it, because you wear your clothes with style.
I have read many posts in Fedora, where you make considerations on how to wear a jacket.
I do not and will never allow myself to judge if your preferences are the right ones (even if they are close to my preferences in the way of dressing), since the way to wear a jacket depends on many factors, all deriving from the experience of life of each of us.
But I feel the need to tell you that on Fedora I consider you a reference to the wearability that I would like for my jackets.
I need a little help: I plan to buy an Aero jacket type A2 in the future, and the dilemma is always what is the right back length.
I own the Premier Half Belt model with a length of 24.5", and that will be my first reference!
Some time ago you posted some photos of an Aero Real Deal and of a utility jacket at this link:
but unfortunately they are not viewable (I think because of PHOTOBUCKET).
I would be grateful if you could post these photos again, and if you could also indicate the back length of this Aero antique steer '30s Half Belt, that fits a little shorter behind, compared to my Half Belt.
Thank you so much for your kindness
Well thank you for the compliments and kindness.
I just sold the antique steer '30s Half Belt, but I think the back measurement was 24". It did have a 1 1/2" front drop though.
The Aero Real Deal and in fact all of my A2s have been gone for quite a while now . I think I sold them a couple of years ago. Sorry.
I am down to only four HH leather custom jackets now. All made by Aero.
My new Battered Tan HH Teamster button up...Black HH Stuart HB style button up...Antique Brown HH Highwayman...Brown HH zip sleeve Bootlegger. Of course I also have various MC jackets for riding and streetwear.
The photos that I had on PhotoBucket are all gone. I only found a couple of my PB Photos on another site.
I can still access my photobucket pics to download them.
How do you do it handymike..??
if you click on an image in your Library, another window opens. Download is in the options, or in the dropdown when you mouse over the gear icon.
Thanks handymike. I just signed in to Photobucket and found that the pics are now available. I will be transferring them to my computer tomorrow. It will take a while. I thought that I had lost all of them for good.
Van, take special care as you download your Photobucket pictures to your computer as I picked up a nasty virus from Photobucket awhile back, after which time I deleted all of my Photobucket pictures and plan never again to click on anything that is Photobucket.
From Photobucket?? What was it?
As I said it was awhile ago but happened either when I was copying a URL on a photo to post or when I was uploading a picture to Photobucket and likely inadvertently clicked on one of the many advertisements on the website.
Photobucket is a disaster. Just a spam filled virus laden mess.
Yeah... I avoid photobucket like the plague. It’s so unstable and within seconds it hijacks your page. No thanks.

I do not use PhotoBucket, but I publish photos on Fedora simply changing the file extension to ".png", which is the specific format for online photos.
To understand a bit of the appropriate length for an A2 type jacket, I took a look at the Good Wear site: comparing photos of utility jackets (with a back length very close to my Premier Half Belt) and A2 models, with a back and front length that I like, I found that, for the same size, the length of the two models of jacket is the same.
To better explain myself, I have compared photos of John Chapman wearing "Half Belt" jackets in size 44 and 26" back length, and wearing A2 models in the same size 44 and same back length of 26".
At the appropriate moment I will speak with Holly, considering also the minimum front drop of my Premier Half Belt model, which is not present in the A2 model.
Fortunately I was able to rescue my pictures from Facebook yesterday. 543 0f them. I used Photobucket years ago when it was the easy thing to do as far as moving pictures around. For a couple years now they have been held hostage by FB and I thought were lost, but now they are all in a folder on my computer. Thanks again handymike.
No problem, glad I could help.
Here’s some pics of my first ever Aero. Black jerky hh zipsleeve Highwayman. I bought it from ebay and I haven’t shown it any mercy. Its somewhere beyond broken in and getting closer to being just broken.
Very comfortable work jacket which kept my own hide dry yesterday in rainy horserace.
For some reason our pony was very interested in my jacket....
This is a 1960s 'Pack In' brand steer CR. It is definitely a keeper and one of my main riding jackets.
This looks sharp. Absolute keeper.
Thanks MET. It is a medium weight steer. Comfortable to wear on the bike.
Main riding jacket. Schott '30s Retro HH. No longer available. One of the few Schotts that fit me in the sleeves, along with my Enfield.
