I've trying to see which guys to go for as I'm looking for a slightly modified version of a Plainsman but I'm undecided on who to get it done by?
Aero is the most affordable while Thedi is more expensive but they don't have a similar design like that and Fieldleather is somewhat new even though their prices similar to Thedi.
I did buy one of Greg's half-belt jacket which was made by Aero but it didn't fit too well and I am looking for advice on which co is great at some customer service and some mods.
I'm new to this so I'm trying to keep the price reasonable.
Any other companies to recommend please?
I have a Thedi jacket, because I wanted a Thedi design. They are riffs off of traditional jackets, but not entirely replica jackets from a time period. As they say with tailoring, don't ask Huntsman to make a drape cut or Anderson and Sheppard to cut a sharp coat. Don't ask Thedi to make someone else's design. Stick with what he makes with a tweak here or there. If you want an Aero design get an Aero. You can get a fit jacket and suggest specific changes if you're worried about standard OTR fit.
