    Here’s a nice side by side comparison of the two. The first is on the left, 2nd on the right. I really prefer the second jacket. Fits better, better hide...easy to wear. I actually think it’s one of the nicest Vansons I’ve ever owned (and one of the few I didn’t send back to jump into Aero’s queue).

    The side by side photos perfectly demonstrate how good that new jacket is.

    I think if I were to order another Vanson I would absolutely spec this z-150. It’s there 90’s recipe comp weight, skived down a bit. It’s remarkably better suited to these super trim styles, like the derby and TB’s daredevil.

    The comp weight Vanson Model E I received had a pretty lackluster hide, with a few noticeable imperfections (and *not* natural ones like barb wire marks, etc).

    Very different than my few year old Model B when it came in new.



    That, plus it was too small, was easy for me to send back. Still not sure what I’m doing for a replacement.

    Are these both the same size? The new one looks more fitted overall.
