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

    Yes- it's somewhat like celebrating quitting smoking by lighting up a carton of Woodbines with a bag over your head.

    Lol! Lucky for you, your approach to the issue is a bit more lighthearted than your analogy.

    It would be a bag with little holes in, natch.

    Somewhat. I'd sent over some dough to John for an Aero listed on there but it'd been sold. He had this one ready to go instead. This is one of the perks of not worrying about a perfect fit. It's about 24" pit to pit, much like my Aero Leather A-2. So, it's an inch big in the chest, but I save four years! I'm really not picky whatsoever. And I gained 10 lbs last year...

    Funny, this A-2 thing has come full circle. A few years back I'd ordered a Bill Kelso 23380, similar russet shade.

    You're a lucky guy and I hope that it fits you! I would never wait >2-3 years for anything (in this case >5 years). I was also lucky to find a used GW Ventura in seal Shinki here in Classifieds and I love it and I'm sure you'll like your's too.

    Thanks. I'm reading Catch-22. Hard to not get bit with the A-2 bug reading that.

    I haven't purchased this yet and I'm not sure I will or will not. I have a love/hate thing going with it. The elastic waist and patch pockets do not appeal...but the collar, shoulders, 2-way zip and sleeves look good...on the fence.

    I think the A-2 looks better slightly large. If it's anything like your Aero, it will be perfect. Congrats!

    Ah yes... that does tend to happen to us guys.

    Oh man first glance was looking real good...but I think that elastic band at the bottom would be a no go for me

    Yeah that's the thing...it creates a beer gut even when there isn't **necessarily** one there.

    I bet it'd be a comfy riding jacket, but for a fashion jacket I'd pass due to the elastic.

    If you have mixed feelings I don't think it's a good decision to buy it as you would probably re-sell it soon - if I was you, I would wait for a better one. The elastic waist and patch pockets do not appeal to me neither. I'm sure that you will find a nice CHIPS soon.

    Nice jacket, and a tribute to the city you call home.

    Figured I'd contribute my spring jacket spending spree. All of which should arrive within the next two weeks. Hopefully they all fit, otherwise keep an eye open in the classifieds!

    Scored this vintage United Sportswear horsehide jacket yesterday off ebay - looks to be in rather good shape for the age. I snagged these photos directly from the sellers listing, forgive the clarity. Just hope it fits once it arrives...fingers crossed.:rolleyes:
