    8A3974B5-132B-4996-92AA-6BA8C980E162.jpeg Oh man! How you feel when Carrie sends you that “just shipped” email along with a few teaser pics of your new jacket, and UPS sends you a delivery notice right after and it will be in your hand in just a couple hours!!

    this is my 3rd attempt at a Sheene. My first was a size 42 in Brown FQHH with nickel hardware, Didn’t fit quite right, sleeves were to short, so I sold it here on the Lounge.

    second was a Lounge pickup I bought from Stitched a couple months ago. It’s a size 40 brown FQHH w/ brass hardware. It’s nice and I picked it up at a great price ($450) but it’s a little short in the body for my taste. Depending on how this new one fits, I may post it back up for sale for some lucky Lounger at a steal of a deal.

    Version 3.0 Sheene that I am stoked to be receiving today is a Size 40 Cordovan Steerhide! Hopefully by now I have the kinks worked out and his will be a keeper! Has nickel hardware, August collar, zippered sleeves on top like a BR... I think this one checks all the boxes and should have all the fit issues worked out. Fingers crossed! 481AAD66-02A6-4F29-BD31-6F987E10CD20.jpeg

    Looks great, Sheene gets my vote as Aero's most wearable jacket. The August collar is a nice touch here, it works well with the cordovan and the tartan.

    Doesn't get much better, except after breaking in.

    3142AD3D-6373-4121-9E19-EF69899B040F.jpeg Thanks everyone! It has arrived and it’s AWESOME! I really had reservations about going cordovan, but this jacket is fing gorgeous in person. I have 6 Aero jackets and I may have only had this about 20 minutes, but it is already my favorite. The fit, color, and specs...it’s is something to behold. Love it!!!!

    Lovely! Great fit too. I had a similar journey & ultimately ended up designing my ‘keeper’ on the board racer pattern.

    Doesn't get any better than that! Fit, hide, collar...it's all:

    Every time I see a sheene it's like a not so gentle kick in the ass about my squandered attempt at the PHWM. The sheene is so much cooler it's not even funny.

    I thought you might like it, if you recall I pm’d you because I liked one of your bootleggers and took a lot of design cues from it! Thanks! Couldn’t be happier with it.
