How many new jackets do you have coming (and how many potential ones)?

    Yeah but, I have it on good authority that the inside pocket is not true to the 1938 model.

    I saw that jacket. One of the more interesting Midwestern togs I've seen. I try to stay away from motorcycle jackets, even though I buy them. Just too many of them out there. This one is a bit unique for the brand. Probably has $100 Reserve.

    This is a nice looking jacket. Good pickup!

    I recently read elsewhere about Target's new "Goodfellow" brand of selvedge denim and wondered about the quality and fabric content. I believe I saw something online that indicated the Goodfellow jeans were something less than 100% cotton. But I don't know if this is true. Also, what is the country of manufacture?

    100% cotton made on China. I think I know what you are referring to. They have some stretch selvedage. Ick.

    Ick is right. But I'm glad to hear your jacket is 100% cotton. I didn't realize China had shuttle looms.

    Does the jacket have the traditional adjustment tabs on the back hem? Have you had it long enough to determine if it's a keeper?

    It does indeed. I just picked it up today. I think it'll make a good fall jacket.

    I have on order 1x Aero custom STF Bootlegger.
    This will be a smart/casual/everyday/motorcycle jacket. A "do it all" jacket. Some folk say it isn't a "rider's jacket", but to be fair, no jacket I have ever worn has been bothersome to ride in other than if you ride a silly motorcycle with bars higher than your shoulders (a.k.a. ape hangars) or lower than your crotch (clip ons).
    Aero will customize a size 38.
    Made in brown heavy 4oz (1.6mm?) steerhide. (I considered cordovan, but wasn't sure of the "redness" as it wears with time so I played it safe).
    Antique brass hardware. And zips on sleeves, rather than buttoned as per my request.
    I've also requested an extra detail of a wee coin pocket on the front.
    I've requested the lining as from their Locharron tartan specialist supplier with this specific Clan Farquharson tweed lining (there's some family heritage going into this) - https://www.lochcarron.co.uk/farquharson-weathered-heavy-weight-tartan-fabric/

    I blame posts and photos by ton312, Wuj, and Carrie (Thurstons) for my purchase.
    Thankyou gentlemen and lady. And Holly at Aero has been wonderfully patient with explaining how to measure myself and offer some expertise in my selections.

    I'll post a photo when it comes.

    Well I've dropped my GW order after 31 months (sent email a month ago-haven't heard back), my name could come up next week and I wouldn't regret my decision. Next up, no jackets but I'm going into a long wait on some barrels of Whiskey I'm having crafted to my specs at a state of the art distillery just opened up by the original owner of Tempelton Rye.

    Enjoy your jackets guys.

    @Dickie Teenie, I understand your frustrations as I'm in the same boat as you regarding the long the wait and the lack of communication..etc..
    If you're still living in Greece have you considered dropping in on Thedi? he seems to make an incredible array of jackets that all appear to be works of art.. It would be ideal to see a few in person and nail down your size..
