    Dito. I was seriously considering another Himel "Imperial" in black oil-tan. Now I see, a blk Californian would also do...

    I used to have an A2 made of Havana HH and I guess yours could be also made of Havana

    With a jacket like that, you could wear a clown-mask, and I wouldn´t notice...

    Seriously, Marc: That Californian gets 11 out of 10!

    Do you need the Long size for arm length or body length?

    I'm 5''11. My 42R has a 24.5' back length which is perfect for my height imo.

    The 38R should have a 23.5' back length. 38L 24.5'.

    Jacket is perfect. That hat seems a little formal for the outfit. I'd get a newspaper boy cap or something with a flatter and slightly wider brim.

    Merv here you go, send your Excelled to Dena - she has worked on a number of member's jackets, and does great work. She fully re-lined a vintage jacket for me. She gets on here from time to time, but this is her really busy season. About 1.5 hours away from me in a small Illinois town. Her website (with contact): https://www.greatleather.com/

    I could pretty much wear this valstar and my aero and be covered for the next decade, but where’s the fun in that?

    The JL two-tone sorta Trojan came in. It is an amazing jacket and the fit is absolutely perfect. I’m extremely happy. I’ll get fit pics up at some point but I wouldn’t change a thing. Even the cuffs are nice and tight, perfect for riding. This jacket rocks.

    Kudos to @AeroFan_07. Perfect transaction, quick shipping, amazingly packed and he included a wide hanger and calendar to boot. Very, very cool.

The brass stars were for a Vanson that I ended up selling and kept the stars for a future project. I did put the silver stars on the lined no name jacket I found in a closet. I posted a picture of that around Christmas. I was going to put more silver stars on my 618, but last minute changed my mind. I went with black and finally have them on. In person they look really mean. In photos it’s hard to tell they are even there. I do want to thank @Monitor for convincing me to do the black though. It completes the badged up rock n roll look.

    Your new looks very similar to mine, which is the Havana brown. 9A89C924-A0D3-4360-B3F8-B94F43FA35CB.png

    You’d love the ELMC but I think that the 38 would be a bit restrictive for you.
    I was considering the 38L when I ordered mine but I’m glad I didn’t. We are very close in size (I’m 5’9, 72kg) and I have a 40R, I don’t think a size smaller would be comfortable.

    Are you sure you've got the Havana? In my eyes the Havana looks more orange. AC2BA9CB-A00B-4D7A-AF5C-4322544AA7F4.jpeg

    Yeah mine is definitely the Havana, as I ordered direct from Eastman.
    I’ve seen photos of much lighter coloured batches and the truth is that mine is a little lighter IRL than in the photo I posted, I’m not a great photographer.
    I also have an Eastman A2 in Havana as well that is very similar to my Californian but not exactly.
    there seems to be a lot of variation between batches.

    I had another A2, now sold, in American walnut and it was very similar to your old Californian. I preferred that color but the fit wasn’t great on me.
