Welcome!Hi there! Long time lurker here, looking to buy a (reasonable quality) leather jacket that is a step up from fashion brands without the costs of an Aero (although hopefully one day I'll own one).
I've had my eyes on fivestar for some time now and I really like the 1930's caferacer jacket (https://www.fivestarleather.us/products/civilian-vintage-1930s-classic-men-real-leather-jacket).
I was wondering if anybody has any experience with the standard patterns and the steerhide leather on this jacket. I tend to fit fashion brands patterns pretty good normally, could I expect the same of this jacket or is custom measurements always the way to go?
Also, is the "standard" steerhide any good? Or should I just go the safe way and order the premium goat?
Love to hear your experiences with this standard pattern.
Thanks in advance and have a great day!
You should absolutely measure a jacket that fits you well and provide those measurements. You can reply to the confirmation email with your requests. Also, I prefer the premium goat to the steer. The goat has more character and mounds to the body better.
Most customizations are no added charge so there’s no reason not to ask for things you want.
