    The Bainbridge and the Vancouver are quite distinct. The Bainbridge starts out hard and smooth and it creases to reveal incredible grain and color variation, while the Vancouver is fairly soft and grainy right from the start. The Vancouver is also a little bit heavier and grainier. Both are absolutely beautiful and you can't go wrong with either!

    Over the years, we've found that leather samples are a poor method for choosing the leather for a custom jacket. It's really hard to figure out what a jacket is going to look like from a 3" by 3" swatch. We take a lot of time and care to photograph the leather on our jackets, since this is the best way to see how the leather actually makes up into the final product! Our photos allow you to see the various characteristics in the leather, from the natural graininess that comes out during production, to the color of the leather when paired with thread and lining colors. We're shipping out hide samples with fit jackets.

    Here are some photos of a custom Aero Hooch Hauler in Dark Maple Bainbridge! We'll have more Bainbridge and Vancouver Aero jackets coming through this summer and fall.

    Thanks Carrie! I look forward to seeing more Aero examples of these cool leathers. Are they both sourced from the same tannery?

    Either way, I feel an Aeromarine in one of these leathers would look so cool.

    Stellar fit photo of an Aero Sheene in Natural CXL FQHH that was snagged right off our Featured Stock page! This leather breaks in beautifully--tons of variation from the pull-up effect! The Natural CXL looks amazing in so many Aero styles...contact us at sales@thurston-bros.com to order your own Natural CXL FQHH jacket--

    The Vancouver and the Bainbridge are from two separate tanneries. A utility jacket in either leather would be superb!

    We have new Vanson Portlands in stock! This beautiful size Large in Dark Maple Bainbridge is now live on our website. Our full grain Bainbridge is hand-buffed over a dozen times in the finishing process to create incredible pull-up and color richness. You’re going to love how this jacket looks right out of the box, and how it develops weeks, months and years down the road!

    No question this jacket has become one of my favorites. This is my first Thedi and it's amazing. Love the leather, the color and construction. My gratitude to Carrie for all her help!

    The Badalassi is, on average, just a tiny bit heavier than the Vicenza!
