Thanks so much for checking us out...between Vanson and Aero, we have a ton of options for premium leather jackets!  Here's a photo of the Vanson Enfield in Brown Octagon leather from our friends at Jalana in Japan.  The Octagon is once again is stock and people love it!  Also, keep in mind that you will want to size down one size in the Enfield design to get the fit that is displayed in the photo.  The Enfield is a modified half belt design, so it's good to keep the Aero...
