What jacket is James Dean wearing? It has similarities to Indian Ranger but can anyone confirm this.
I think the Indian Ranger is a great guess.
What a cool jacket!
Yeah, I don't think it could be anything else.
Only thing that isn't quite right is the positioning of the snaps in the collars. But yet again did they really do it that accuretly back in the days.
It's anotehr one that Schott claim for their own, I believe.... so, in short, probably not a Schott but possibly some other brand they bought out and dropped and so now claim it was theirs!
The only Schott brand to come close is the Beck 333, but that was a D pocket.
Of course they wanna own it
Good eye but I think that's just how the machinist installed them. The position of the snaps seems to be least consistent on vintage jackets.
The throat latch is also different and the jacket is way too long - the chest pocket, while at the right angle, is much lower than on most IR's that I've seen. But I'm still pretty sure it's the Indian Ranger. Possibly a Long version?
Indian Ranger is a beautiful jacket and hey, best part, Aero makes the only (and the most) accurate repro out there.
Dean's jacket that Schott claims they made is actually by Cal Leathers. Well, at least they've since produced a nice looking CHP of their own but still. . .
same pic as aeros website....
Jinkies, not looked at that one for a while, but damn, does it look good....
I'm going to spend my fifties looking like a mad old fart in all the Aero jackets I couldn't afford while I had a mortgage....
This one, from Cal's website, seems to be different:
Wtf... They have just add it, today probaply I was just watching that from their website and it wasn't there
Or maybe i was just being blind :'D
That Aero looks awesome!

Why have I never noticed that Aero model before? It looks ace!
Tried one on in the sale. It was just on the wrong side of roomy, otherwise I'd have gone for it. Oddly, any other biker jacket I've ever tried just looked wrong on me - I'm not sure I have the correct 'attitude' for one, but the Ranger was the exception.
THe glorious thing about the classic bike jacket, of cours,e is that there are just so many slight variations on the theme, one of them has to work! Have you tried the 59er HWM, btw?
My favorite Aero motorcycle jacket model!
I just was on their site Saturday evening and stumbled across this. Seems they just did a rebuild of an Indian Ranger for a customer, so between this and the one in their archives, they were able to build a new replica version. Sounds like they had one prior, but now it's official. I want one, in CXL FQHH, exactly as pictured but with 27" sleeves, in a size 42. Humm..maybe after Christmas?
