25 inch length would be perfect, too.

The Fontana, which I think is a Thurston exclusive, is pretty spot on.  The western yoke in the back really does it.  It has a California Route 66 vibe, which is my jam.

#1 thing i'd remove is the straps on the back, i hate them!

25 - 26, prefer rick owens style longer jackets ....

I've never tried on a rick owens. I'd have to look at my TOJ and imagine what an extra inch would look like.

It's going to be a slim fit, updated version of a Vanson. That was the point of the Junya version, and that is the point of ours.

Rick tries for something completely different.

We had a production meeting this morning with Vanson and we're looking through the available slim patterns...one problem is that every time we go super slim, people don't like the limited range of movement...therefore, we may need to balance function and aesthetics here...  However, ultimately demand will determine the fit...

Regarding the moto, my ideal moto would be something like this:
1. length > 24inches, 25-26
2. slim fit
3. nice chrome zips with cool pulls (no little leather straps on pulls)
4. one piece back if possible
5. no buckles on the back like the junya
6. i like the camo lining but i am not married to that idea
7. thickest possible leather that is still movable

all my pics of the junya... Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)


Regarding liner choices, here's the Lochcarron Minto Check Liner...it's pretty classic...  Black Rayon is also a good choice...very versatile!

 

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), default quality

I see what you mean. I was going to order a TOJ moto, but after hearing about wait time, and seeing some of the Vanson ones, I'm pretty much set on seeing on what you guys can come up with. I thought that the fit on the one that was posted in the other thread (by NicelyNice, I think?) was perfect. Are you sayign that that would be hard to move around in?

This customer's Aero J106 in CXL Steer turned out great!

Great Black CXL Front Quarter Horsehide on this Aero J106!  Superb leather jacket...

This is a nice variation on Aero's crosszip jacket style that has been growing in popularity...the Aero J107, pictured below, is a little simpler front design than the Aero J106!

What model is this? Do you have more pictures?
