    It is amazing that you always got want you want or something even beyond your expectation, even more ridiculously is you will sell that jacket and later you get one that is even better.
    I don't hit the like button because I am just too jealous.

    Nice score Ton, you can wear that puppy hard without worry. I would go ahead and condition the jacket, with the right product the color will fad back lighter and faster at the stress areas

    Lol, Ton and Terry both. I don't know how they get those jackets; I guess that's why I am a noob...;). One day I will score, too, lol. But I will never be able to wear a jacket like Ton. ;)

    Nobody competes with Terry. He’s playing in his own league!

    Tony, that's a great piece right there! Like the baseball glove comments.

    That said - condiiton & make it yours. It's an awesome winter piece for Chicago. Just don't tell the folks at Aero about it, maybe it could be a new jacket style for them, since the original manufacture appears MIA.

    Thanks Randy. Would be nothing more than a couple simple mods to a Sheene to make this out of natural CXL but I think many of the design elements are outside of Aero’s preferred pattern ethos. Maybe I could convince Ken to do one with that Ruskin label and die knowing my life had a purpose. LOL. But seriously.

    If I was feeling completely crazy some day, I'd send it to JL for a bigger, pointier, more 70's collar. Or a full remake in I dunno, 5oz + Horween. Cordo. Not that it's not perfect as it is but this is me just wondering if a perfection can be perfected upon.

    Who says insomnia doesn’t pay, that is cool as hell. And the fit is laughably good. It’s almost more sensible to hunt for deals than pay full boat for a custom. This is exhibit A in that argument.

    This is what I was planning on doing, but I'm clearly not as good at keywording on the bay as most of you guys.

    @Bennarion should provide a tutorial. He finds awesome stuff I rarely see in my searches. Then the key is understanding how the patterns, brands etc fit on your body. I’m okay but others round here seem to possess some sort of beautiful mind for the process.

    I'm pretty sure @Bennarion works for the russian secret services and has acces to some fancy search engine we don't know about...

    haha, perhaps a similar system to the one they use to catch idiot westerners hunting for mail order brides?

    Everything everybody has said about this jacket is right on and in spades.
    I’ll just say, man you found a total diamond in the ruff that somnolentless night.
    All i ever get is tired!!
    Might “Jimbo” be the name of the guy some custom maker made it for??
    Hope you don’t get bored and sell it but if you do i’ll get in line. Lol

    That’s a good point! Jimbo might well have been the recipient rather than the maker. The hide and cut have me really leaning toward Natal or Walter Dyer. But the mystique of jimbo...the world may never know!
