Said I was done..but a Battered Tan Teamster pulled me back in...

Discussion in 'Outerwear' started by HoosierDaddy, Feb 17, 2018.

  1. To be ordered in the next couple of days:

    Size 40 Battered Tan Teamster.
    Herringbone tweed lining
    Cotton twill sleeve lining
    Left side Inside G-1 style pocket no snap
    Woven Leather type buttons
    Sleeves 26 1/4"
    Body length 28 1/2

    What's left of my Aero collection. I was trying to shrink it down to only two jackets but then GW KY posted his new jacket and I just couldn't get it off my mind.

    Brown FQHH Highwayman...Antiqued tan steer '30s Half Belt...Black FQHH Stuart ( same as Maxwell )...Mottled brown FQHH Zip Sleeve Bootlegger...

    Hey KY can you post a pic of your Teamster on this thread so I can drool over it until mine arrives..?? Thanks Man..:cool:

    Sounds great. I'll enjoy seeing this one. Out of interest, what is the back length of your usual Aero's, say a bootlegger - is it around 26 inches?
     
  6. 26 1/2" in the Bootlegger for my torso Seb.

  9. Well dan_t I put up a good fight. Just checked my records and it was 2011 when I received my last new jackets from Aero ( Bootlegger & Stuart ). So...seven years ago ( wow I can hardly believe that ). I've been enticed by photos of some member's new jackets and Aero's ruthless advertizing several times during that hiatus but always gained control and backed off. Then Battered Tan hide appeared, met an Aero Teamster and they just seemed to complement each other in a very special way for me.
    I am awaiting full price for this rustically beautiful Goddess of leather and tweed that haunts my dreams and weakens all reserve. May have to sell my car to pay for it...but I will look so good strolling down the sidewalk battered like a boss....:D

    I think that the trim across chest, back ,and cuffs plus half belt of the Teamster help break up and frame that rustic hide for best effect. Looks great!

  17. GoldenDoodles are very popular here in central Indiana. Several of my friends have them.

    Sweet Jesus, I just read Goldendoodle and thought it was jacket maker/brand I never heard of. Googled and learned I need to read all the posts before anything else.

    That battered tan certainly is a beautiful hide. The dog is cool too.

    Not really confirmed yet but I did hear that Battered Tan hide might be made out of GoldenDoodles.
    Stay tuned...

    I am a dog guy, but that jacket may be worth a few golden doodles
