Insurrection / Thurston Bros., Aero Leather Jackets North America - Official Affiliate Thread

post #1 of 301
Thread Starter 

Hi Styleforum,

 

After being here last Fall and taking a brief hiatus, we’re back again as an Official Affiliate!

 

Our goal with Insurrection (www.insurrectionperformance.com) and Thurston Bros. (www.thurston-bros.com) is to always have the very best in premium outerwear for our customers.  With this goal in mind, we’ve become the sole North American source for Aero Leather Clothing with a great monthly production allotment that keeps wait times short on custom orders (1-2 months!) and a ton of off-the-rack Aero stock.  We’re also one of the largest volume Vanson Leathers dealers in the United States.

 

We got our start almost a decade ago here in Seattle, WA with our small brick-and-mortar shop.  Our focus from the beginning has always been on quality leathers, both new and vintage.  In our time in business, we’ve sold a ton of great leathers and we look forward to moving ahead with this new partnership with Styleforum!

 

Carrie and I will be around to answer any questions that Styleforum members might have…you can also reach us via email at info@insurrectionperformance.com or info@thurston-bros.com.

 

Also, we’re a Platinum Parts Unlimited Dealer, so if any Styleforum members want great pricing on performance motorcycle parts (from exhausts to levers and everything in between!), we’re your shop!  Just PM us your motorcycle make, motorcycle model, motorcycle year, and the part desired and we’ll get you our best price, which includes FREE SHIPPING!

 

It’s good to be back!

 

Thanks,

 

Insurrection and Thurston Bros.

Good to see you guys here. I'm hoping to place an order sometime in the future; sorting through all the options I'm reading about online now.

Hi LA Guy,
 
Your Aero Fontana Racer looks great...excellent fit!  It would be great to see some photos now that its broken in a bit...all of our Aero and Vanson jackets only get better with age!

Hi Tsujigiri,

 

There are quite a few options with our Aero and Vanson leather jackets, so it's definitely good to do some research!  The general custom process for Aero is laid out here on our Thurston Bros. website--http://www.thurston-bros.com/#!custom-aero/cvnh

 

If you're wanting to go the Vanson route, give us a buzz and we'll sort you out...

 

One thing I will post up here is Aero's C/X Steerhide, which people often overlook because they're very interested in our front quarter horsehide leather jackets.  The steerhide is thick at 3.75-4.0 oz, but looks amazing!

We still have 13 production slots open for North American customers at the Aero Factory in Scotland for April Production!

We wanted to let folks know that we just received a new box of Vanson Choppers!

 

 

Also, it's now officially Spring, so getting a great warmer weather jacket is something that is on a lot of people's minds!  Aero's A-2 and Half Belt designs are popular choices for this time of year!  Check out our Aero Civilian and Military Catalogs here:  http://www.thurston-bros.com/#!aero-catalog/c1rp5 and here:  http://www.thurston-bros.com/#!aero-military-catalog/c19co

 

We still have April Aero Production Slots available for North American customers!

Thanks, I've been looking at the Aero options. I was most interested in the Indian Ranger. Based on the customizations I've found online, I'd probably change the zippers out for Riri ones, add leather facing to protect the cuff, area around the zipper, and bottom hem of the lining, add a light tartan lining, remove the belt, add one inside pocket, and either move the snap pocket to the arm or take it off altogether. After reading a little more I'm concerned that the FQAH might be too heavy and stiff for everyday use, though. Do you have customers who like that leather and but don't need it for protection?

Also I can't seem to find a photo anywhere of someone wearing the Indian Ranger unzipped. Do you happen to have one?

I don't know about other customizations, but Riri zips are a bad idea. Though they are smooth, even the heavyweight ones are much mote fragile that say, Talon.

Thanks for the input, this is the first I've heard of that. Since longevity is a priority for me with the options I want to select, I wouldn't want to use fragile zips. Do you recommend the default ones, or is there another kind that they have that's better?

I personally swear by talon.

+1...the The Talon Zippers that Aero uses are very nice...also, if there's a failure, heads are available for replacement!

Hi,

 

Please see above on the zippers...one option you may be interested in is the Aero J107 in Front Quarter Horsehide...it's a great jacket!

Leather facing on the inside of the cuffs and hem just bulks things up, so I wouldn't recommend that...everything else sounds good!  Regarding the thickness of the Front Quarter Horsehide, it's great for leather jackets...it's Aero's C/X Steer that a lot of people feel is a bit heavy!  The FQHH is very, very nice!

 

We don't currently have a photo of the Indian Ranger unzipped, but it does look quite nice that way!  Hope this helps...

Oh, what? Didn't know about the J107 as it's not on Aero's site. How does it differ from the Indian Ranger besides the lack of front pocket? It does look similar and I quite like the look of it.

The J107 was done by our shop to model the look of the Buco J-71...The fit is just a tad slimmer than the Indian Ranger (it's the fit of the J106).

 

Keep in mind the Aero Cafe' Racers for Spring...Aero's Brown Front Quarter Horsehide and Steerhide leather jackets are tough to beat!  This Aero Cafe' Racer jacket looked great on our customer!  Please find more information on Aero Jackets from our shop here in the Civilian Catalog:

Here's one of our customers in his Aero horsehide leather jacket with "The Count!"

We were able to photograph our newest box of Vanson Choppers this morning...these Vanson "rockers" make for an amazing leather jacket!  This run has a chest pocket and red, quilted liner...
