The Yoke maketh the jacket....
I really like the western style, if that’s what you would call it. All very nice jackets. Thanks.
Aero designed their Board Racer, I think, as a racing shirt. Part of the description states "The back has a double kidney panel and is cut to fit close to the torso, to achieve this we've had to use a centre back seam, quadruple stitched for extra strength, which follows the contours of the wearers backbone. We are aware that a centre back seam isn't to everyone's liking so we are offering the option of a one piece upper back but one should be aware that this will compromise the close fit of the jacket."
Obviously if no center seam is used it seems a back yoke would be preferable to break up the one-piece back look that would be more aesthetically pleasing than no back yoke at all. I have always been intrigued with the concept of Aero's Board Racer as an alternative to their Cafe Racer. Anyhow the complete description of Aero's BR is here:
Art!! Pure Art!!
A dream jacket!
Who has this jacket now??
Love to see it again.
I personally prefer no yoke, although if I'm going for a two-tone jacket, then yoke it is (in a contrasting colour).
What's that great half-belt, Dan? Looks like a Californian Sportswear copy. I agree that a yoke improves almost any jacket.
It’s actually a heavily modified Aero Sunburst.
Probably my most comfortable jacket to be honest.
Original post about it here;
Maybe me? I think Ton had more than one black Aero CR; I bought (I think) his first one, which was too tight on him. I can't recall offhand whether it has a yoke or not, but if it does, then the one pictured above could be mine. I meant to check on this last night, but had too much going on to get to it. So many jackets, so little time...
The one I sold you isn't the one pictured...yours doesn't have a back yoke. This one went to a member here in Colorado. I also sold one to an ebay member : oldtoyshanger.
