    I got this great jacket earlier in the year from member Fanch. Not a nicer guy on the planet. Well, there's a few of you here, but he's as nice as they come. I've been waiting for the temps to get below 100º+ and finally, I got a little time with it this weekend - very little, but I did wear it inside (wet it down with the sprayer) and was able to make it look a little "less new". Me, I have the opposite problem :p
    So, here it is. iPhone pics with so-so quality, but have a look. Of course I appreciate all the upcoming comments. Given this wasn't made FOR me, I'm amazed at how well it fits. Thanks Fanch for a great jacket. I'm slowly but surely getting to appreciate goat more (knock it off guys) :)
    Fire away...

    Looks great! Nice grain and a very good fit. I like the Fortis watch too! Wear it in good health.

    Butte, I would be grinning from ear to ear like you are if I had an Aero Bronco that fit and looked as good as that one! I even like your Fortis chronograph too.

    Wow, it looks like it was made for you! The grain of the goat is awesome. I have an Aero 30's HB in Seal Goatskin that should be in my hands within the next 2 weeks or so. Supposed to be shipped out last week, but it wasn't and Aero is on break this week. The Aero goatskin is very nice.

    Love the Fortis watch as well. Mind if I ask what type of watchband? Looks great.

    Thanks gents. Appreciate the feedback.
    Grayland, the strap comes from here:
    http://www.toshi-straps.co.uk
    The only place I go. It matches the hide so I thought I'd post it up. I go between two Fortis B-42's, one with dark seal and the one here. Between the two, it's enough to cover most jackets just fine. I used to be a watch ho, but I had to stop that...

    Looks cool, not sure about the strange bushy things that seem to be growing out of the epaulets. If they are oak leaf rank insignia then they need trimmed!;)

    I get first dibbs!!! :)

    Awesome jacket Scott - looks perfect on you! I love those close-up shots that show the grain - makes me lust after a little goat myself! ;) I'd definitely want to be first in line if it ever rotates through your self-imposed "one-in-one-out" system. That is, if I live that long! Looks like an easy wearer, I gotta feeling you're going to be wearing it a lot.

    Super sweet jacket Scott and a dynamite fit. Really nice; one of the best looking A-2s in goat I've ever seen. Wear the heck out of it and enjoy every minute.

    Now move away from the tree!

    I had surgery. You might recognize me without the jacket...

    Just as you say you're getting a better appreciation for goatskin I've been admiring the russet color jackets more than I once did. That is a beautiful hide on that one and a great fit as well. We've been into the jacker weather here in the midwest for a little over a week now and I'm loving it! :D

    Great looking jacket and fits like it was made for you. Hope you get the weather to enjoy it now.

    Butte -
    VERY nice!
    I recently picked up another maker's impression of the Bronco in goat skin. It's bringing me around on that hide, too. The lines of the Bronco just seems so... cooool: relaxed. Really has the look of something like a western shirt. And that one looks good on you.

    Great looking jacket…looks very comfortable !
    Hope the "recovery" from your surgery is swift !;)
    And to blur the background …if possible…pick a large aperture like f2.8
    get close to subject.Zoom in a little !
    Good Luck !

    Previously not an Russet or goat fan. But looking at all the GW goat jackets and trying a GW russet HH A-2, I began to appreciate them. I don't look good in "reds" according to the boss. She changed her mind when I got this one, so I guess it's OK.
    Here's a pic of my other Aero Bronco in a seal cape hide. It's ~5 years old now.
