Good day. I am going to start the custom Aero process with Thurston Bros soon so I wanted to pick some of the forum member's brains since many of you have done this before and some many times. I am not a big fella and like my jackets fitting neat and trim. I am 5' 8" and about 160 LB. I refer a jacket with a higher arm hole also. I have sold off my current leather Jackets (Vanson Model A, Schott 689H) as they were too large for me at a size 42. I should be in a size 40 so I am starting over with two new jackets. 1st is a Thedi shawl collar that should be here in a couple weeks. Hopefully it fits right out of the box and it should going by the measurements off of the Thurston Bros site. 2nd will be a custom Aero I want to get on order asap. I am looking for a more slim fitted offering from them and from what I have gathered by doing some research, these are the jackets I am looking at from Aero. Board Track, Seven, Plainsman and at the top of my list is the Premiere Half Belt. I have been staring at the T.B. and Aero site for a while now trying to gather info on the changes I'd like. Right now, I am really liking the Premiere Half Belt but I'd like a less pointy collar on it but I am unsure at this time if that can be done. I would also need a bi-swing back added like on the Half Belt Deluxe. Basically I am looking for any suggestions from the experienced custom Aero guys on here. I have no idea right now about lining. All I know is I don't want wool tartan and am gravitating toward a cotton sateen or even a quilted lining.
