 Nice fit!  This came out great!  This base style is actually the Board Racer with a collar, so it's got all the features of the Board Racer (like the outside placement of the sleeve zips).  It turned out to be another great version of a collared cafe' racer!  If you'd like to get fitted for a custom Aero jacket, come on by the shop today from 12 -6!  You can also browse our large selection of Aero, Vanson, Thedi, and vintage leather jackets for that perfect Winter jacket...
The CXL FQHH is a good option (however, specify is super dark).  Also, the CXL Steerhide (I've attached a photo below) or the Veg.-Tanned Dark Seal Italian Horsehide (2nd photo below...almost black) are good options...  
For your build, the Board Racer, Premier Half Belt, Premier Highwayman, or Premier 1920s Work Coat would be the best.  Attached is a photo of another tall and slim customer who went with a custom Sonoma Racer...you're much slimmer, but we'll still get a perfect fit! 
Here are couple of custom Aero Bootlegger STF jackets that just came through...very different leathers and liners, but perfect combinations!   www.thurston-bros.com   Here's Russet Goatsking with a Check Tweed lining:       Cordovan Chromexcel FQHH with Lochness tartan lining:    
The z150 has a little shine to it, but this wears off as the jacket breaks in!    Vanson does offer quite a few color options!  One of the most popular color options is the Octagon color (Vanson's color page doesn't show this color accurately).  It's a really rich brown color that acquires a beautiful patina as it ages because it has a brush-dye finish (versus standard drum-dyed).  Here's a photo of Octagon in a Vanson Model B: 
This Aero Cafe' Racer looks outstanding!   www.thurston-bros.com
