    I can’t do anything about the fit or the pockets but I believe you can order the Teamster with different button if you choose to. I know this because I deliberately selected the footballs (a mistake) when I purchased mine.

    Sounds like a modded Aero premier 20s work-coat might be in order...

    Perhaps - but I need inside pockets [phone, passport, etc], which would require leather facings; and probably shoulder gussets instead of the elasticated center vent. Well called as that was also one of the Aero models at which I had been looking.

    OK then I feel like a "wimp" for wearing my Vanson Ike again today for coffee on the coast.
    Jacket taken out of "summer hibernation" for todays' squally weather. 9C minimum 17C max.
    Next squall visible right behind the shot. Last day of our spring 8C below average for November for us.
    Within 5 minutes of this shot the rain was horizontal and heavy , but only for 10 minutes.
    Which is WAY long enough to piss you off if you are on a motorcycle !

    what size jacket and what's your height/weight. I've been looking for an older one but can't figure out if I'm a 38 or 40. you've got a perfect fit. And is that nickel hardware? I thought they came in brass usually?

    Curious about the response to this as I'd be interested in getting a collar for my brown Cal CHP.

    Well folks here's a HUGE departure from the norm for me on the Lounge.
    St Andrews night down my local pub tonight , traditional Scottish fayre.
    Wee lassies Highland dancing , and a live Pipe band in the pub.
    My jacket choice for tonight was purchased from this very forum classifieds ( thanks Tweedydon !)
    Anderson Tartan I seem to remember from the time.

    E8A0DE9A-4D34-412E-998E-C38D6EA84125.jpeg Seriously in love with this jacket. I feel like I could be happy if this was my only leather jacket. All of these years I’ve felt nothing for cafe racers. Y’all have been posting pics of your cafe racers and I’ve been yawning. I bought this just to give the style an honest chance. I couldn’t imagine I would enjoy it this much.

    Beautiful! Sometimes I envy you guys in colder climates. Then I put on my flip-flops, go outside in my shorts to drink my coffee, and it goes away :).I do love the look of these shearlings though.

    I feel EXACTLY the same about my (one and only) cross-zip.

    Funny how that works.

    If I could trade 10 months of jacket weather for 10 months of sandals and shorts I would do it in a heartbeat

    You can still wear the Brooks. My Kehoe is the perfect weight.

    Yeah, if only for the fact that the combination of flip-flops, shorts and leather jacket is... not a style that I would try to replicate ;). There can be only one handymike.
