Our Thedi Phenix Cafe Racer brings back 1950s/1960s motorcycle style with diamond quilting on the shoulders and elbows! A classic two-pocket front with diamond pulls complete the look...no need for anything else to make this jacket stand out! We have the Phenix in stock in Black Buffalo, but it is also available in a wide variety of leathers and colors with our custom process.

Wow--this custom Aero Thunderbay is impressive! Great details like an Irvine shearling collar and a quilted lining make the jacket ready for anything fall and winter might bring. The new owner of this Thunderbay used our fit jacket process to dial in the fit and lengths, as well as select all the perfect materials to create this beauty!

Wow. I feel like Michael Corleone in the mediocre Godfather part 3. Always pulled back in.

@Carrie @ Thurston Bros. Amazing stuff!

A couple of questions: Can you tell us more about the Olympia leather? Looks to be a great option for those of us who want something different than the current standard Vanson leathers but not as busy as the Vancouver or Bainbridge!

Do you know if ACE is planning on making belts with thicker leather? I love mine except for the thinness! It sort of warps (which could possibly be avoided with a double prong).

The Olympia is an olive-leaf tanned full grain cowhide and it's pretty thick--about 1.4mm! It doesn't have the infused wax finish of the Vancouver and Bainbridge, so there's less shine. Olympia is a little stiffer with the extra thickness, but still feels pliable (however, not spongy...it's a firm feel, similar to Badalassi). Right now we're using it for custom orders only, but we may introduce Olympia in stock jackets next year!

Regarding the ACE leather, we can ask about it with our next round of orders.

The classic Aero Highwayman has never waivered in popularity, even as many fantastic styles have been added over the years to the Aero catalog! The Highwayman's appeal comes from its workwear roots...the pattern is easy to wear in a heavy to medium weight leather and you can layer underneath for colder weather. The trick is getting the right fit and lengths, so when you are ready to order your custom Highwayman (or any other Aero style), contact us at sales@thurston-bros.com and we'll send you one of our stock Highwayman jackets for our fit jacket process!


We keep sizes 36 through 50 in stock at all times, so you may find your perfect Highwayman right off the rack! Here's a size 48 in Brown CXL FQHH--

Everyone is preparing for fall and it's about time the weather cooperated! Awesome fit on this custom Vanson Chopper (extra sleeve length for a guy with longer arms) in Comp. Weight Cowhide. Nailed the length with our easy fit jacket process!

Another recent custom Aero delivery to North Dakota! You have to plan it right to catch the mild fall weather in our northernmost states, while a good portion of the US is still waiting for the temperatures to finally drop into "leather jacket" numbers! Right now is a great time to get into the queue and start the fit jacket process for your custom jacket. Contact us at sales@thurston-bros.com to reserve a jacket--
