The Schott CAF1 is an awesome reproduction of the 1950s cafe' racer that Schott produced for Beck!  We're taking pre-orders on this jacket for September delivery--this is such a popular style that there's never any off-the-rack stock available!  Contact us if you'd like to get sizing information and place an order...

 

 

 

 

Or, if you don't want to wait, we've got Vanson Model B and Model B Deluxe cafe' racers in stock in all sizes and ready to ship!

That reminds me a lot of Aero's Battered Tan Front Quarter Horsehide...people like it a lot.

 

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 75

That's really nice!! Is that a chrome-tanned, spray-dyed aniline leather? I remember reading somewhere that Aero uses mostly chrome-tanned leather. 

 

I get concerned that some of these leathers might patina/distress too quickly and dramatically. TBH I'm a little overwhelmed with all the choices. 

 

edit: Also will you be posting pics of your own custom Italian horsehide any time soon?

Yes it is!  This particular leather does distress very quickly, which is very appealing to some of our customers and not a good choice for others.  Aero's tried-and-true Horween Chromexcel hides don't distress as quickly as this leather, but they do develop evidence of wear more quickly than other leathers (compared to, for example, Vanson's Competition Weight leather or z150 leather).  Many customers like this quality of the C/X leather a lot because it's quite different from many typical leathers that show very little character after even many years of wear!

 

We'll hopefully have good photos of the Italian horsehide soon...

 

 

The Vanson Chopper has both attitude and classic style!  We order these for our off-the-rack stock with a black rayon liner and in Vanson's Competition Weight leather...

Is there a tight fit version of the Enfield? I guess it's already fairly slim fit, but would it be possible to make the armholes higher? What would the upcharge if it can be done, in comp. weight, thanks.

 

And can you guys also make a brief comparison between the FQHH Aero uses and the comp weight cowhide Vanson uses, trying to decide between a Vanson Enfield, Thurston SF collab racer, or an Aero Fontana racer.

Yes, it's called the Tight Fit Enfield.  The cost of the Tight Fit Enfield in Comp. Weight Leather is $649.99.  The Tight Fit Enfield is slimmer through the arms, shoulders, and chest, and the armholes are situated a bit higher than on the Standard Enfield. 

 

Regarding Aero's CXL FQHH and Steerhide verses Vanson's Comp. Weight Cowhide Leather, the CXL hides feel more "wet" because of all of the oils that are packed into them in the tanning process.  Also, a lot of it comes down to color...  If you want a lighter brown, Vanson's Octagon is a very good choice, if you want a darker brown, nothing can compare to Aero's CXL Brown, if you want black, both Aero and Vanson have excellent blacks, if you want cordovan, Aero's CXL Cordovan is the only way to go!

 

Hope this helps...

Here's a photo from one of our customers that shows brown C/X FQHH after about 6 months of continual wear--it looks really amazing!
