The Vanson Model B Deluxe is one of our best selling cafe' racer jackets...check it out here:  http://www.thurston-bros.com/#!vanson-in-stock-catalog/czm0  
Hi kashmir, Our lightest leathers vary quite a bit in finish and color...we offer a couple of suede leathers (goat and cow), and a very light weight standard finish goatskin in several colors.  We offer these leathers for custom Aero orders...we send out leather samples with our Aero fit jackets, which makes it easy to see the various hide choices!
@Synthese--photos look great!  You may want to try a size M when the final pattern comes through.  When we patterned these, we thought the L would be for guys about 20 lbs. heavier than you....however, we definitely get a good "feel" for the design with these photos...
Cutting the new pattern today!
Yes we did, but we changed our mind...
For size L, the Junya jackets are officially 20 inches in the upper shoulder.  We're making the upper shoulder 18 inches for size L
We took a good look at the shoulder-to-shoulder measurements of the Junya range and feel that a significantly slimmer upper back is the way to go...we're choosing an upper back profile that's consistent with really popular vintage jackets and awesome new fits, such as the Aero Board Racer.  We went from 1" decrease to 2" decrease in the upper back after some good thought and deliberation...
       We have to name the jacket a name that's consistent with the style-cluster that we're dealing with.  We're creating a range of slimfit Vanson designs that will be named Viper, Daredevil, Bullseye (we're still debating this name a bit), SheDevil, and Villainess.
Yes...however, it will be an additional $60.00 USD + Customs fees + shipping back to us.  We do intl. fit jackets with our Aero jackets and it works quite well.  We send the finished, custom jacket as an exchange to avoid double Customs fees...
Yes....this.... We've had a lot of inquiries about measurements and even suggestions for what we need to do to this design...we ask that people hang tight until we have the finalized design in hand.  We believe that people will like the finalized design better than the Junya fits (which are already available through the Derby) because of the smaller and more fitted shoulders.  We'll probably fit this design using our fit jacket program that we've developed for our premium...
