    I did. Honestly I like the sheene better TBH. I'm anxious to see how yours turns out. If I had the scratch I'd be buying Dan_t's like yesterday.

    I've just had this conversation with Carrie. The closest match to my Navy Blue Board Racer size 42 was actually a Sheene Size 38 with 0.5 added to the sides so it's closer to 2 sizes difference !!

    Just for clarification Moira Mac has NOT left Aero. Moira Mac is a bit of specialist of Cafe Racer, Board Racers and Sheene here at Aero.
    The Moira at Simmons Bilt is a different Moira.
    As for Simmons Bilt "new" pattern ....... ?? No comment!

    like many here, i also consulted the forum when it came time to spec my Sheene. It's almost a year old now and keeps getting better and better.

    mine is a pretty standard spec:
    size 42, brown FQHH - grain spec'd at 50/50 smooth vs. grainy
    HWM Collar - i remember reading that the smaller collars you can spec on this jacket may look out of place if you're a bigger guy or have a bigger dome.
    antique brass ball pulls on everything
    interior snap pocket on left breast
    standard pointy yoke
    inside kidney panel
    zippered handwarmers - opted for the zips since i use it to hold stuff and am paranoid about losing things
    olive drab contrast stitching
    i added a total of 0.5 inches to side panels for a little extra girth
    made by Moira Mac

    love love love my jacket.

    Edited my post. I have to apologise because i don't want to spread a false statement (today better known as alternative facts).

    Some of my jackets are made by Moira Mac and she always did a perfect work. If i will consider a Cafe Racer or when ordering my Sheene i would be glad if she will make the jacket.

    Sorry to dredge up such an old thread, but I thought this was interesting. That future show-through is what is making me unsure of whether to keep the internal panel- does it look bad or is it a nice feature that makes that back look unique? Hmmm... pics, anyone? :)

    i can say right now that my 1 year old sheene with the internal panel is visible. it doesn't bother me at all. i know it'll help keep my lining from damage from my belts

    So I've owned one of these that popped up in the classifieds here for about 8 months now. It's really a versatile jacket. I would say this and the 30's HB are very close in terms of being the "go to" jacket for daily way. These and a 37 year old Vanson Enfield. All this to say, no matter how you order it, and with any of the leathers that Aero stock, I believe it may well become your favorite as well. Next time around with a Scheene, I'll order through Carrie in Cordovan Heavy CXL Steerhide with olive cotton drill lining, and keep it as basic as possible otherwise.
