Aero dustbowl today
Still unstable weather. LW again, with a Buzz Rickson Crewneck Sweater and Tellason Ladbroke Grove.
Sorry for the unpleasant setting. Quick snap at the gas station.
Nice one! Like a Bates Suburban. If it's too tight let's talk!
That’s what I thought too! Fit is to the nuts. Not that that really means much as we all k ow how I do. But I really like this one. Have one more jacket I need to round out this year. It’s been on my want list for quite awhile. Interestingly enough I won’t have anything made past the 1970’s. It appears I’ve gone full circle back to where I started in this hobby.
Fine, damn it, I like it! remind me if I missed something..how much did you pay for it and what kind of skin is it? thanks.
Wrangler jeans are great for all Aero
Do you mean the cafe racer? It's an 11 years old Aero Leather Cafe Racer Front Quarter Horse Hide. I don't remember the exact price but I think it was about 600 or 700 EUR.
It looks great, and only eleven years old, that's been worn hard, probably in a desert.
Can we see the back pls?
I didn't babying them and just worn them every day just when I had them new. In the front, however, it looks even newer. But there was a time too where the jacket stays in the closet.
Careful! You're gonna hit the gym and bust those seams right out!
Oh, please excuse me I thought it was your five star jacket, which they made to order for you)
ah ok, no. Just the vest is a FiveStar.
Maybe you mean the cossack... that’s steerhide.
Yes Bro, I meant the Cossack, I mixed everything up)))) thanks.
Bates does such a wonderful job with the back. The gussets are perfect. Just like vintage Cal CR’s they are super deep and keep everything tight while still allowing for plenty of reach.
Thanks! I’ll get some better pics tomorrow when it dries. Gave it a skim coat of Vaseline after a quick bath.
What are the measurements of the jacket? We are close but I think your “to the nuts” is a tad tight on me. Looking for a Bates fit reference. Tks.
It came in larger than advertised. Which was good b/c I figured it was going right to market after I received it. 23.25” p2p (listed as 22”)
26” sleeve (listed as 25”) 19” shoulder (not listed) and 28” back, which was exactly right. It’s a t shirt only fit I’d imagine, like a longer and trim CR.
Thanks. Tagged 42 or 44? That’s in my wheelhouse. Just that most of the 42s I have handled are 22” P2P, zippable but too snug for me.
