Hello All, this is Sree from North of Dallas, TX. Starting a new thread here. Been lurking around here in the forum for quite some time learning all about leather jackets, and enjoying the beautiful jacket photos from fellow members. I have much more to learn. Great forum to be in, wealth of information and thank you all for sharing your thoughts and expertise. Well, decided to take the plunge on getting myself a leather jacket. This is going to be my first one. It's mainly a business casual wear. I don't ride a bike that often. Reached out to Carrie and have requested a fit jacket, which I should be receiving today. Thought to post my progress and contribute to the forum as well Sorry for the lengthy post. I will post my fit jacket pictures shortly. Here is my refinement and choice of jacket that I think I will go for: Aero Seven with the following adjustments, - Blackened brown color with super extra grainy FQHH vicenza - need that FQHH for sure , love that grain - No shoulder gussets - Four Pocket Design, angled and be original to BR style - A subtle "V" yoke, single panel back - Inside pocket with no zip or snap on button - Arms stitching to line up with yoke stitching in the back ( Post 1307 page 66) - Collar - thinking between August/highwayman. Carrie suggested August collar would be a nice option. Posting pictures below for references - Arms - nice slim fit arms with hidden zippers in the back - Debating between Antique Brass / Nickel hardware - Diamond-Shaped Talon Pull on Chest Pockets - Bell shaped Talon main zipper with horsehide toggles - Bell shaped Talons on hand warmer pockets - Main Zipper to start from closer to hem, don't need that high placement in my case - Heering bone harris tweed with matching knits ( this liner choice seems to be not available anymore in the Lochcarron site.) Alternative lining, I'm eyeing on Kyle Check Tweed Light Weight Fabric with brown knits? Here are my body measurements: 44" chest - breathed in expanded 42" relaxed - breathed out 43" Around tummy on naval 40" Waist 27.5" sleeve straight, measured to the base of my thumb 28" back( standard oxford UN-tucked shirt collar base to bottom hem) Height = 6 feet and 2 inches (74") Weight = 209lbs / 95 kg August Collar HW collar: Liner choice: Kyle Check Tweed Harris Tweed Liner: The liner and knit I dig: any clues on the liner name and knit? Bring it on folks, your thoughts and ideas!
