    Any thoughts on fit?

    Looks superb! I can’t wait to get my Aero. But apparently I’m going to have to. Congrats!

    Thanks for the feedback! I‘m quite relieved - theory, using the information here and at the Aero website and Holly‘s advice, is one thing, deciding on a particular style and measurements another.

    What do you think about the modified back (no yoke)?

    Looks like a perfect fit.!

    I like the plain back on a half belt.

    Great choice for a first Aero. Fits nice, and this style will never go out of fashion.

    I am sure you already did, but go check out „Gasoline Alley“ in Glockenbach Viertel on what’s up next...

    Congratulations!
    The back looks great without the yoke.

    Good job. There's lots of half-belts available today, Aero's remains a great one!

    Yes! Fit is wonderful, it looks trim but seems like there is space to layer up as well. Looks great and that's a great way to start off here. May we see you post more jackets in the future.

    Will do, once such a crazy thing as visiting a shop will ever be possible again...

    Congrats! I think the half belt style is a great entry point with its all around versatility. I started with an Aero 30s HB as well, and now 12 jackets later...

    Adence - Welcome to FL! Very nice Half-Belt! Looks like it fits and suits you to a Tee.

    Now - stay away from the Classifieds here and at Aero! They do get you into trouble... :)

    only 12... I already see it is hard to stop, too many different leathers, colors, styles and associated use cases

    ... too late. A similar thing happened when I got into suits. Must ... resist ...

    A question to the elders (figuratively): I understand that raising arms will lead to some movement of the entire jacket and some effective sleeve shortening in any model where the arm holes are not cut quite high.

    From Aero, is it only the Premier range models that accommodate more free arm movement? Also, are there any downsides to that, for instance less breathing room, need for even better fit or the like?
    I take it from some of the measurements on their site and comments here that someone like me with a size 40 on most models (known exception being the BR) would in general benefit from a 42 on the premier range, correct?

    For me, one size up does the trick in the premier range.

    Fit&Feel of the Primos will be entirely subjective. For me, the PrimoHWM and Bootlegger (available only upon request) work very well, whereas the PrimoHB isn’t quite the perfect fit. The Board Racer, which I also consider a “premier fit” is really, really trim.

    I am sure others can chime in about the jacket riding up when lifting the arms. I’ve had that with some jackets but never really got into pattern issues responsible for that.
