Ok, vindicated...pretty much.
Original California Sporstswear this am. Will transition to the ELMC Californian this evening for Dear Evan Hansen. Kiddo is looking forward to it. I’d personally rather see Shang Chi.
A tale of two half belts, old and new.
Love the Foxy Few patch

Old Cali for the win. Shang Chi was cool too.
Zeus is on the left…I’m on the right. We going for the same look.
Took these in a hurry, but finally got a chance to wear this chocolate brown suede Aero Type III (I think from the 90's). Easily one of my favorites.
been waiting to see this leather out in the wild. Looks really rich. I don't think Aero will do a type 3 in very thick leather. Probably Vicenza or Badalassi is a good mid point.
Just epic. Other than maybe a shot like this with Steve McQueen, I could die happy afterwards.
That looks great! Nice to see you trying a new style as well. When is it expected to be finished?
I’m really looking forward to a detailed report from his shop. Enjoy your stay in Thessaloniki!
Yeah didn’t someone say they recently tried to order one in CXL and Aero said no?
I get it - mine is stiff even if it’s not mega thick or heavy and the patch chest pockets w flaps make for a lot of layers of leather to break in.
Edit I hit send too soon: This jacket looks great in this hide, it reminds me of one in battered steer that had been posted to the classifieds a while back.
Thanks. It’s an extremely comfortable leather and amazing grain right away. Looking forward to what it looks like in a year
Perfect. The jacket and the fit. Well done!
Superb!! J-100 gets all the credit for being top dog on vintage CR’s but imho, I think these Bates CR are the true champion. I’ve had a few. Each one better than the last. The definition for how a CR should fit. Well done! Looks perfect all around!
I'm still pondering whether I should pull the trigger on this jacket. I already have too many jackets, but this is a beauty!
@Leigh H those suede jeans are awesome! (The jacket’s cool, too!)
Bates and the Harley Sportster cornered the market, for sure.
I’m looking for some brutally honest feedback and advice. I have this Double Helix Deviant, that I can’t return. Depending on the day and my mood, I think it either fits perfectly—Or it feels just small enough to make me not want to wear it.
And honestly, I realized when I went to take the pictures that there’s only one position that grates on me: When my arms are down by my side. But then, how often will I actually be standing like that? I feel like in that position, I’d like just a touch more space in the shoulders. One size up would give me 2cm more in the shoulders and chest, and 1cm more in the arms and length.
I assume the shoulder seems will relax a touch with wear, so that might help. Otherwise, it’s a comfortable fit, as long as I have a thin shirt on and don’t try to wear a sweater. Maybe I just need to make sure I keep my hands in my pockets.
What are your thoughts? @ton312 @Marc mndt @navetsea
Also: I’ll be vacuuming up that dog fur as soon as I hit post.
Not this one but I took a trucker home today and ordered an amazing custom D pocket. Black hand dyed hh with russet mouton and brass hardware.
