Insurrection / Thurston Bros., Aero Leather Jackets North America - Official Affiliate Thread - Page 2
Styles mentioned in this thread:
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!
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?
There are a few photos of one of our Aero cross zip horsehide jackets with the belt and belt loops removed here: http://www.thefedoralounge.com/showthread.php?70770-Insurrection-Thurston-Bros-Official-Affiliate-Thread/page156 Check it out!
Is it possible to replicate this Vanson jacket? Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
We can modify the pockets on the Vanson VAJ-3 to look a lot like those chest pockets. I've attached a photo of the VAJ-3 below.
We modify a lot of Vanson's existing designs for our shop and for our customers...Vanson takes a tremendous amount of pride in their work and their jackets turn out amazing!
The price on this design would be $749.00 USD (base price of $629 + $120 pocket redesign). Also, we can do this in Vanson's X150 leather (shown below), Vanson's Comp. Weight leather (this is their standard leather), or Vanson's Firenze leather (this is a lighter weight leather). My suggestion would be to go with either the X150 or Comp. Weight (the jackets in these leathers develop amazing patina over time!).
I hope this helps!
