    In my experience, he's always been reasonably responsive, generally when I send emails for more complex matters like going back and forth on the specs of a jacket, I keep the email as succinct as possible and list out my questions, makes it easier on the other end to just simply respond to the questions, yes no maybe can cant $2 etc. I also try to bunch my questions, so instead of sending one question at a time, I try to think about everything I need and send them all at once.

    Thanks for the inspiring thread! I contacted 5 star about creating a jacket for me, since I've never found an off-the-rack jacket that fits. Did my best with the measurements, and converted to metric. I asked for a levis type 3 trucker (style that best fits me), and they state they have the original pattern. I am having it made is buffalo hide, with a dark brown poly diamond lining, and dark brown name tag. Hoping they pull this off well. I've never had a jacket made before, anything else I should ask for or keep in mind? Thanks.

    Mr Proper, a member on this server, has a great Five Star goatskin trucker.

    Some notes: Their buttons are not particularly well suited to this, so many people have been asking for cut buttonholes, but no buttons, so they can have a local leather firm attach buttons.

    What's your budget for this jacket? I ask because Aero produced Levi's Vintage Clothing's leather Type III, and Levi's gave them permission to keep producing the design. You can get it both from Aero directly or from Thurston Bros, their US dealer which may have some in stock.

    Yes thank you. I've almost made it through 217 pages, and I did come across the one you're referring to that Mr Proper has. I also seen the same pic on the 5 star website.

    I have read about the buttons, thanks for the tip ill ask them to skip these.

    Budget is under 400, i was quoted 350.

    I do see the Aero you're referring to. But honestly, it does not look anything like the levis one IMO. Collar is larger and double stitched on the aero, pockets and flaps way bigger on the aero, button holes are spaced differently, and the back is cut differently. Does not look levis design to me, which i much prefer. Hoping the 5 star jacket looks more levis than the aero.

    The Aero is literally built on the Levi's archive patterns in partnership with Levi's…

    Like it or not to say it doesn't look like the Levi's design is ridiculous as a matter of fact.

    In any case you should be able to get some good metal shank buttons to use.

    so you're saying you don't see the differences i pointed out between the two jackets?

    partnership or not, the aero jacket looks ridiculous.

    Shawn's trucker is gonna have more modern cut than Aeros.

    Aero's cut is gonna be as close to the first type 3 as possible back in the late 50s/early 60s? Not sure the exact date, but very long ago.

    Good thing with Shawn is that you can customize measurements. So vintage look with modern fit. Please don't judge me for this. People were sized differently 80 years ago.


    And my theory with the funny response is because of google translate. This happens a lot with a lot of places. But it's also nice we don't all speak just one language. Makes the world more interesting.

    What in that actual Hell happened here? Let’s please not get this thread locked, it’s essentially launched 5 Stars business and it’s a valuable tool for members seeking a build from this company!
