    Very cold (clear!), early mornings in the harbor make for GREAT photos (a fellow captain took this shot of my boat as I piloted her across the harbor). Perfect weather to wear a toasty warm floatation/survival jacket:D

    Thanks, my main reason for Vincenza was to chose a different colour and possibly to keep the weight down. I presume the steerhide would be a bit heavier also?.

    Nah, I don’t think the Steerhide feels heavier than Vicenza (I have three Vicenza jackets). Thicker and softer, but not heavier.

    It should be illegal to wear a trucker that doesn't fit like this.

    Exactly that. 100% true. That's what made me sell my last Aero CR and objectively speaking, it was the endgame piece for me. But I couldn't stop thinking what it'd be like with a rounded kidney panel... Stupid, bordering with deranged, I know, but at the time it made perfect sense to me.
    But if anything, ever since then I am kind of reluctant to go full on custom anymore. I don't think I ever will. The Lee trucker I got off Aero's sale page is the least perfect Aero I have had, and I like it the most. By far. It's too short, maybe a size too large, unlined and yet, I'm perfectly happy with it.

    I too learn a bit shortish sleeve from standard size works too after, sometime/ most of the time it is only in the mind of the wearer.

    Like any proper cult leader you don’t follow your own teachings! At least you’re honest about it... [emoji6]

    I think it's discontinued. I've been prowling eBay for one for actual months. There's new old stock on there in limited amounts, but I wanted to save a few quid by getting a lightly used one. Which I finally did.

    Here's an original store sale listing with more info.

    The temperature dropped today. Had to break my three day streak with the 59’er and bring out the Schott pea coat.
