    Found this suede trucker on Vinted. The numbers seemed OK, and the seller made an offer so cheap I took it just to check if it would fit. Surprisingly, it's not so bad, apart from it being slightly too long and bunching up in the back.
    The label seems to be ripped off from Aero

    Very good find, congrats! Yeah, many Gems can be found on Vinted :) The body length looks good (for my taste), sleeves are slightly too long...probably you can roll up the sleeves.

    Cool jacket! Though I think I've seen Go West brand already and that they're dating from the 70's or something. I could be wrong. But it's a nice trucker in any case.

    Legit jacket weather this morning. This one was on my wish list. Missed it like 3 times. Finally got one. Might be my last while I wait for a couple things in the works.

    Probably made a couple years ago. This batch of blackened brown Vicenza seems blacker than a lot of what I see posted. Other than a couple nicks, there is no brown or warm black to be seen yet. Has a kind of Cal glow to it. Perfect weight for los angeles. It's going to get a lot of wears.

    Seems like a good batch. VIcenza can sometimes look too pebbly and uniform for my taste, but this one looks NICE. Congrats on a great jacket :)

    LOL. I wanted one for like 10 months. Then when I saw yours, I was like, oh boy. This is a done deal.

    thanks. I'm not quite sure how to describe the leather. I know there's fans and people who don't like. It's definitely not a supple kind of leather, but yet it's very pliable. Obviously the thinner weight helps. For reference, I have a Ridley in CXL and that is a 44. A bit loose, but not bad. This one in Vic is 42 with almost 1.5 less ptp and fits me great. So there's definitely a lot more wiggle room for comfort, drape, etc. The texture, almost cardboardish, does remind me of CXL though when the jacket is cold, yet doesn't really soften up much when warm, unlike CXL. What strikes me though is the glow. It is in a good way, a shimmering black. The arm creases are ridiculous. And maybe it's the leather and/or the pattern, but considering no gussets, no action back, etc. it's a super comfortable jacket. The measurements are on the tight side for me, but this is easily top 2 or 3 for comfort.

    Breaking out the THEDI in cocoa Buffalo. Very comfortable jacket although with my larger arms the armholes are just a bit to snug but still wearable and comfortable 3F85FFED-EA22-4409-82B9-7BB64758AECC.jpeg BDBF7C49-69D6-4B45-BAF9-5A3FE5751121.jpeg
