    Won this Joe McCoy Mobster on Japan auction. USD 460 for a Shiniki HH jacket is pretty reasonable I guess. i-img854x480-1572769234tn2z7m269690.jpg

    I ordered a jacket for my sister's birthday.
    I tried to combine some elements from several types of denim jacket into one, i like the type2 body since it looks smarter than type3 but for female, its droopy pocket of type2 kinda unflatering so i use type3 pocket flaps and inside pocketbag.
    The back has half belt with cinch so it can be adjusted if she wants to wear it unbutonned, and a bit wider facing toward the collar so it can be worn as spread collar lapel too. 14oz raw non selvedge

    And i also ordered vest in cotton duck

    For myself, still have to decide if I want olive or caramel.

    Both from the same jeans tailor who made my double knee jeans & type2 jacket. I love his work, clean construction inside

    The Irvin I ordered from Aero in October came this week, now I finally have the time for a proper post and some low-quality pictures.

    I was super concerned about the fit since in October I originally ordered an Irvin from WPG size 38 and it was very low quality and the fit was absurdly off. Ken from Aero, however, led me through the order process and through the measurements. I had to take a 38 for the fit I was looking for and of course, without any doubt, he knew what he was talking about and now I'm absolutely in love with what I have; it's crazy how both Irvins being 38 the fit looked and felt completely different. It would be a crime to not mention Tony Glovers that made this beautiful piece that screams quality out of every sheepskin pore and all the girls\guys at Aero.

    Also, I was a bit concerned about these jackets warmth, since I read pretty much everywhere that the sweet spot would be around 0 C or below. Well I live in Northern Italy and I'm using it every day with temperatures going from 13C to below the 10C (sometimes 0, sometimes 4), walking a lot in it and didn't break a single sweat, the sheepskin sure is isolating but it's not crazy thick to suffocate you; it never felt uncomfortable.

    Can't be more happy with it

    It's a custom order from BKS.
    Need to try it on the motorbike to see how it feels :)

    I thought that it looked like a BKS jacket. Let me know how it goes.

    So when are you going to persuade Brian to do a collaboration with Electric Leather Studios for a Weed Bike Cop jacket? :p

    Got myself into a pickle. Ordered a new Langlitz Cascade with “death head” D pocket and stitch down epaulettes. Jacket was finished very quickly, hasn’t shipped yet. But, thank god I asked for a photo. Scott told me if I wanted the D pocket to be on the right hand side just like the death head or the usual left side, I said left side. But didn’t think the maker decided to do this. See photo.

    I’ve read stories of Langlitz being accommodating & agree to remake a whole new jacket. Not sure if they’d rework it for me.

    I guess I’m a little confused, What exactly is wrong with how they placed the pocket? Not trying to be a smart ass here, just not sure what the issue is.

    I think the position is a little bit weird isn't it?
    It almost looks like they tried to match the position of the D pocket zipper with the position of the other sides's handwarmer.
    To me it is too far out on the outside and too straight. I would have wanted it closer to the main zipper and at a more slanted angle... Basically a mirror image of the OG death's head position.

    Tough call, not sure what i would do.
    Feel like a douche for asking it to be remade for what is only a subjective aesthetical thing, or keep something that isn't what you had in mind...
