    Holy frigggn cow!!! That is amazing!!!! How did you spec the fit? It's perfect, not too trim but still very neat. What an amazing jacket! That's a game ender right there.

    That came out perfect. Enjoy it, awesome jacket.

    If I had to thunder dome all of my jackets except for one, my LW CHP would be the sole survivor (or maybe my best Cal). No, this LW would win, it is that spectacular.

    Ton,
    It is a stock size 46 with a straight back (no kidney panel dip). Stuart sent me the standard model for a fit jacket and I almost told him I needed a 48 instead, what a mistake that would have been! He really has a sweet pattern here because the jacket is quite comfortable and with good freedom of movement despite the fact there are no shoulder gussets nor action back.
    I don’t know if it is a game ender, but if I am smart I will realize that I am not going to improve on this when it comes to the CHP style.

    It’s absolutely amazing to me how much better this looks pictured on you compared to Stu’s circa windows 95 era website. Man he should absolutely post this on that page. Dang man. Didn’t need to see this at all. Just as I’m complaining about how short all the vintage versions are. You drop this piece of perfection. Outstanding man. Just flat out perfect.

    Totally agree about the length of the vintage jackets and that’s something I was really nervous about when I ordered this one. The jacket that I tried on ended 2 1/2 or 3 inches above my belt in the front, pretty much right at the belly button. I can see how that would make sense riding a motorcycle and wearing a heavy gun belt strapped to the jacket. Could not be more pleased with the length front and back on this one.

    Did you spec the length to Stu?

    Yes I did. I went with a 26.5” back length which he carried straight around.

    @ton312 regarding the 5oz Steer. Couldn’t you drop a line to Aero and tell them you want a jacket in that heavy a leather and are happy to wait till they get another batch like it?

    Might be worth a shot?

    Really like how the leather dye came out on this jacket. Wear it today as it's drizzly. The dye really bringes out the grain. Screenshot_20190522_124759_com.android.gallery3d.jpg Screenshot_20190522_124749_com.android.gallery3d.jpg

    My Cooper A-2 from the same era never looked that good. If it had, I might have kept it.

    Yeah, it made the jacket come alive. It seemed like the dye absorbed really fast so it will be fun to see how it ages.

    Vicenza looks like a perfect "do it all leather".
