Hey there, I remember I did a ton of research on the Schott 659 Horsehide jacket. Pics/forums/measurements/etc. Was excited to decide that was going to be my forever jacket....went into a store and tried it and it just did not do it for me. Thank goodness San Francisco has a Schott store. Now I am looking at Aero's and Eastman's. Love the look and fixtures they use. But there is no where for me to try it on. Really don't want to send measurements to Aero/Eastman and pray it works out for me. I am hoping to meet up (I will go to wherever is easy for you) with someone who has any of the following: Aero 1930/50s Halfbelt, Aero Highwayman, and the Eastman Calfornian. I am a US 38/40. I like the more form fitting/snug fit vs. boxy. I like jackets with a pit to pit of 22" give or take .5" (measurements taken off a Rick Owens Jacket that I own) Would love to try yours on (I will shower and be sweat free: ) and hear your thoughts while we sip on some coffee. Thank you!
