    Was thinking about it but it'd come out at over $150 just have it sent there. With the modification... Would cost way too much. If only Aero wants to do it as I don't really know where else to turn to as I don't trust anyone but they're too busy right now.

    Beautiful jacket!

    On another note, I'm surprised Polaris (owner of Indian Motorcycles in the US) hasn't bought the rights from Toyo, or maybe they have tried and failed? Polaris has strong armed a few small business's that were using their logo's to make motorcycle accessories here in the US.

    Anyhow, awesome jacket. That certainly looks better than anything you can get from a Indian Motorcycle dealership, haha!

    The plot rebounds. Like many, I was more than impressed by Monitor's review of this exceptional jacket. Then, because of fit issues, he took the painful decision to move it. I happened to be the lucky recipient, which would've been highly unlikely not so long ago. For a very long time, I considered crosszips unfit for me, maybe because I had seen too much of the Schott Perfecto type in the late 70's early 80's. Things changed the day I fell upon a Cal that cancelled all my preconceptions: side laces helped adjust the waist, while the overall clean and sober look (no jangling belt buckle, no flashy nickel snaps) made it unconspicuous. Then, little by little, I got contaminated and developed a new crave for various models, and I must point out that Monitor's highly persuasive prose played a major part in this. Perhaps it would make sense to open a thread titled "Monitor made me do it" or "Jackets Monitor made me buy".

    Anyway, back to the Indian . When it was finally for sale, I didn't hesitate long before pulling the trigger, even though I wasn't sure about the fit, fearing it could be slightly oversized.
    Fortunately, I feel good about it , even though the sleeves are a bit on the long side, and there is room for layering , but a winter jacket was exactly what I was looking for. I won't add anything to what Monitor already said, so here are a few fit pics, with and without the belt and fur collar.

    It looks great on you!
    Congratulations!
    I personally like it with the collar and without the belt ;).

    This is such a beautiful jacket. There is something special about it. I prefer the look without the mouton collar. I like mine like this as well - leave some room for layering, but doable with a t-shirt.

    I love the design of the lapels, but the mouton collar is a great addition in the winter: once you get used to it, you can't live without it.

    I'd go all out - mouton collar and belt. No retreat, no surrender.

    Nice pickup Mandarin.

    A used jacket purchase turned out to be one of my favourites after fussing with new and custom this and that. Along comes a nice one at half the price of my new ones and it is one of my favourites now.

    That is a stellar jacket.

    And yes, a thread titled "Blame it on Monitor" would have many posts and remain active for a long time. Lord knows his prose has reeled me in for the Monitor kill shot.
