That G-1 looks so cool on you.
Yes, it is an exceptional jacket: never too heavy, never too annoying for movements, never too bulky.
My next jacket will be an Aero A2, maybe for the spring of next year...It will be in Seal Jerky Horsehide, seal or caramel knits...Contract 38-1711-P or Bronco W535AC29191...I've to discuss with Holly which contract is the slimmest fit for arms and torso, and which one is less bulky....we'll see....
My current keepers,
Left to right
Vanson Ike probably horsehide.
Aero Highwayman black Steerhide.
Schott D 611h D pocket Horsehide with homemade removable mouton collar.

Ps there are a number of others leather and denim/cloth/nylon in the garage on a commercial rail.
I propose that jacket be henceforth known as 'Irish Sunburst'.
Recently get another jacket was added, which I will never sell - Eastman Star Sportswear.
I'm sure it will be one of the most loved, it's love at first sight
I hate this thread because I have to admit... I got it right the first time
I would fantasize that 30yrs from now I would be a crazy cool 70yrs old in my grey jacket, but probably this black jacket would work better, this one is roomy but doesn't look boxy, long enough and minimalist enough to be worn in most situations, the weight is about right with 1.6mm hide.
but for now, I rather these latest 2
I love my goatskin jacket too, but at times it makes me look too skinny which gather comments (from fat people) about how I should eat more etc.
somehow the leather creases under the breast pockets that looks like ribs, maybe that's why it makes people think I'm the one who need to eat more, see that's why I prefer thick hide.
I would have to disagree, you got it right every single time!
More seriously, it's true that thicker hide works better here. If you were to ask which of the 3 first jackets I prefer, it would be difficult.
I'll third that

....why? (I’m clearly missing something)
I'm guessing cause it rains a lot in Ireland and there isn't much sunshine and the back on yours doesn't really have the sun ray pattern....?
It's because it hasn't got a sunburst back and the Irish used to be the butt of quite a lot of jokes over here.
That looks so good! What leather is it? Seal goat?

Three of my keepers.
Aero Highwaymen - my very first Aero
Aero Premier 30’s half belt - trim fitting
Aero Kudu Pioneer - heavy but soft, great for layering and so easy to wear
@Cooperson, good choices, good leather and good fits. You wear them well. My first Aero was also a Highwayman. Like you, I have managed to hold my Aeros to three as well. Good to see you back again.
Yup, Aero’s seal goat.
It’s starting to soften & shape nicely now. A couple of winters worth of wear.
Looks even better.
@Peacoat I remember the photos of your Highwayman, many years ago, great looking jacket. Had so much going on lately, all things leather jacket related have taken a back seat - hope all is well your end.
I really liked the jacket on your first photo - Aero Highwaymen
