Just pulled the trigger on a Magnoli Terminator II. After ruminating over 1. The Aero Indian Ranger ($900) 2. LW Buco or Tog ($1700) 3. Aero Elvis ($1000) 4. eBay 1994 NOS Bates T1 ($1100), I finally decided to give Magnoli a try. They seem to be easy to talk shop and custom-sizing, the chrome buckle looks heavy duty, and they “don’t use YKK” (??].
got to post this! The Magnoli T2 arrived. I have to say I am more than thrilled! At this price point, it has exceeded expectations and quite honestly, it could pass as a real Bates! (Now Bates have to go try harder on the leather choices to justify the $2k price). Long story short, the shoulder shape is done very well, I feared it’d turn out to be a square shoulder, balloon arms, but no, the droop shoulder is accurate, narrow top stitching is accurate, long and down pointing collar is accurate, angle of lapel is accurate, EVEN the leather interfacing and lining pattern is accurate! They just have actually studied a Bates original. Only slight gripe is the less tapered cuff but no big deal.

Working my way way through what will undoubtedly be my final bootlegger order. At this point I am only sure of these things.
1. It won’t be CXL
2. It will have a quilted liner. Petrol blue or Evergreen.
3. Snap button cuffs
What was / were the reasons you sold your previous ones?

That's a very good question. Many were second hand (some slight, some more severe fit issues). The three I had custom made I sold because:

LOL...In all honesty my tastes for crosszips started to dry up. But I've found myself thirsty again. I'd really like to try another one of Aero's leather offerings too. I've been through plenty of CXL.

What about a Thedi 'Bootleggger' (mtc-35326398€&@)
Choose some fancy leather, maybe add a mouton. I'm pretty sure Theodoros knows how to make a snap button cuff. Why not? Thedi's zippers are unbreakable :)

This photo keeps on giving. What was Langlitz thinking. Especially because their Japan photos are seriously cool!

That is seriously unappealing! Good thing the Japanese know how to market the jackets better lol

Yes! The BL master is back! I can't wait to know what leather you choose! You're BL reviews is what made me get one! I'm one for asking Aero to have a stock removable mouton collar be placed since you are such a regular customer

I'm dreaming about them now. Flat brown or tumbled brown or black CXL, standard no button cuffs with storm cuffs. Quilted lining, mouton collar and cut pretty short.
