Hi All, I have been considering a leather jacket for a while, and decided I would have one custom made for my build. I plan for this to be my only leather jacket, so I want it to fit properly. I've narrowed it down to two styles: either an Aero Highwayman or Aero Windward, both in tumbled cordovan FQHH (I'm aware of the bleeding issues in the Cordovan, but most of my shoes are in shell cordovan no. 8, so it's not really a question). What in your opinion would be a better style? Of note, I'm not very tall and probably had one too many doughnuts. The following are my measurements: Height: 170 cm – 5ft 7” Chest (relaxed): 113 cm – 44.5” Chest (expanded): 116 cm – 45.75” Stomach (at widest point): 112.5 cm – 44.25” Waist (actual waist, not jeans size): 98 cm – 38.75” I wear my pants at the hips due to my belly. Also, I have a particular quirk in that I usually wear a "holster" for my cellphone, car keys and small knickknacks (which was done custom), which hangs off my belt. He's a photo of it (not very stylish, but I love it anyway): I'm thinking the Windward, as it is a shorter jacket, would ride higher, over the belt, and would be able to clear this, but it would leave my belt exposed. The Highwayman, on the other hand, would cover my belt and the holster, but may leave a bulge. Also, I wouldn't be able to zip the jacket, unless I pull the bottom edge up and over the holster on one side. Despite this, I am slightly deciding in favor of the highwayman due to versatility. Any thoughts on the Windward however? Will it be as versatile as the Highwayman? (putting up a poll on what to get) In any case, down to my question: As I've decided to do a custom, I've contacted Holly from Aero leather, and she has been very patient and helpful. Based on my measurements, she has advised me to get a size 42 for a Highwayman, is this about right based on my measurements? For those who have ordered custom from Aero before, are there any options that are particularly recommended that are not in their basic jackets? Pockets? Linings? Zippers? Sleeves? Also, would it be possible to specify a hanging loop for FQHH or is it too heavy? I don't think I'll be wearing many layers with this jacket, as I imagine it will be something I just put on top of a t-shirt or shirt. I will also be wearing it in warmer weather, so that's also a consideration. Any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks!
