    Quite honestly it is still too warm out for me to even pretend that jacket is warranted but you guys know how it is...
    Went for a walk a little earlier this afternoon and said “hi” to a man I passed on the street, “nice outfit” he replied. Always nice to get a compliment from a stranger, I can only hope this jacket is a hit with the ladies as well.

    the sheep leather feels denser than the regular sheep on today's Lewis, although i think Lewis' Rutland would be a match. This one afterall is more than 60 years old

    No vent openings. Its pretty light weight with only a half lining on the back, makes it a good option for warmer weather when you need a thin jacket to ward off the occasional summer showers without going all out with the wet weather suits. And yes, it does strike a nice Goldilocks balance between lets say something like the Belstaff Brooklands which hits the waist and the Belstaff Trailmaster / Barbour International which is a bit too long in the body for me. I like this a lot. And for slightly cooler weather and/or if I need armored option, I wear the Vanson/UGNYC Robinson, which is this same Stormer base but with lots more details - D3O pads, leather backing on critical places inside, full liner, etc.

    Pretty cool! Looks great, fits great. Doesn't seem terribly bulky, too, which is a good thing.

    Covid-19, staying at home too much, eating too much, exercising too little - I’ve packed on some pounds, starting to show, not in a good way ... today, wearing the Thedi padded shoulder CR, tighter fit than before, dammit!

    I dig that flannel. Would make for a nice tartan pattern.

    Yeah, they seem to add 1-2 extra inches to most stock Aero models when they order from Aero. It's nice for some of us taller folk, but we have to live with the daily reminders of the used/ebay jackets we can't wear because the sleeves aren't long enough or whatnot. I know sometimes Thurston sends the stock jackets around as try-on jackets. Perhaps the longer lengths make customers' adjustments easier when they use a thurston stock jacket to custom order? Only guessing.

    I think they just erroneously assume everyone wears low rise jeans and likes longer jackets or are dumb enough not to understand that a jacket (most jackets) shouldn't cover your hips and rear. I think it's a good idea to have some longer options in stock, but not every single order. Order half stock length, half regular. Appease more segments of your market.

    I honestly think that’s the best type III they’ve done yet.
