    As the title states, the one empty slot in my humble collection...looking for a cross zip, something like a bootlegger or similar. Nothing too moto. Simple is best!
    Can wear anything from a 40” to 44” depending on measurements. Trying to avoid going full boat on a custom so we’ll see how that plays out...refreshing the Aero stock/sale page every 10 minutes doesn’t seem to be working. LOL.

    I know a guy who had three or four kickass bootleggers. End game pieces. He might consider moving one on. I'll try to remember to his name. ;)

    Sadly it was more than the three I personally ordered. In total I think I’ve had 8 or 9!

    If it helps on the sizing (I don't know what you've tied on before), the standard Aero Bootlegger is based on the same pattern as an Aero 50s Halfbelt, with a different front obviously. That's between a standard Highwayman and a 30s Halfbelt in fit. For wearing with a shirt, tie and waistcoat, or a not-too heavy sweater, I wear a 42 in a HWM, and a 44 in a 30s Halfbelt. My Bootlegger is a42; these days I'd probably buy a 44 and cinch it in more; all depends how you like it to fit on the waist.

    You know - my parent's cat lasted 16 years - after it was "gifted" to them on thier farm by a passerby. :)

    I don't think she even had used all 9 lives yet...

    sounds like this very creature is the nemesis of leather jackets, at least cross-zips! I‘m scared

    Greta Cat always tells me that my Aeros "are good for sleepses, cause is made of warmz." Her favourite is a shearling, though. Her late sister Marlene said the same. Somewhere I have a photo of them as kitten, curled up inside a B3 I foolishly left on the sofa...

    I’m quietly hoping that the jacket I’m getting from FL will be the pinnacle of stripped-down, low-key cross-zip. It’s a journey I started about a year ago, after first seeing the Schott Raven and thinking it was a nice design but not a leather I’d want .

    LOL!!! Dude there’s no way I’m selling the green machine but if you think I haven’t looked at your dust bowl 18,000 times you’d be mistaken. The only thing that worries me is the back length. It’s a good 2” shorter than my HB!

    Yeah, that's a shame. It's a Vanson cross zip.
    It appears that my album permissions are set to private, but for the life of me, I can't figure out how to change them to public, or something else that would allow others to see them.
