What oz horsehide would you recommend for fashion purposes?


This is 3.0 oz. Front Quarter Horsehide.

 

For fashion, anything between 2.75 and 3.25 oz. is good....going thinner than that will hamper jacket's ability to acquire a nice patina...

Thats a great looking jacket . . . a bit too bold for my taste, but great all the same.

 

MF did a cool repro a few years ago:

So I am looking for cafe style perforated leather jackets with armor but in a slim modern cut. I see the daytona is toted as a slim cut, is it possible to order it with armor, thicker leather and perforated? Would the armor make the cut of the jacket look off? Any suggestions?

Absolutely--this jacket can be made with Vanson's thicker perforated leather.  For the armor, we sell the Knox armored shirt, which allows for a slimmer profile while still wearing impact protection:

 

 

The cost of the jacket would be the Daytona base price ($729.99), plus $50.00 for the leather option (provided no other changes would have to be made to jacket, such as changes to stock body or sleeve length).  The Knox armored shirt is $179.95 and slips easily underneath a well-fitted motorcycle jacket!  The combination of this armored shirt and a slim-cut Vanson jacket is the slimmest combination available on the market.  If you'd like to order this, just give us a call at 206-550-3545 to get started...

The new Aero Board Racer is one of the most stunning and well fitted cafe' racers that we've ever had the pleasure of carrying in our shop.  For an Aero Board Racer fit jacket, please contact us at (206) 550-3545.

 

Fit:  Quite fitted with slim biceps, shoulders, and chest.  For people who like a fitted front quarter horsehide cafe' racer, this is the Aero for you!

 

Styling:  We can also do this jacket with a Buco J-100 yoke and without the lower kidney panel.  However, to keep the jacket fitted, the split back is necessary.  If a fitted look isn't paramount, a one-piece back can be specified.

Is it supposed to bunch up in the midback like that?

When cafe' racers are quite slim, they do that...a person can size up, but it's usually best to to get the proper size.

 

Here is a good board racing video to get in the mood for the new Aero Board Racer...

I'm the furthest thing from an expert, but that looks pretty bad to my unknowing eyes.

The bunching is more pronounced when there is a kidney panel.  If you want the back to fall straight, you probably want to eschew that.

Here's the Board Racer in a slightly more generous fit...

Yes, this is correct.  The kidney panel can serve to keep the jacket a bit above the butt...taking the kidney panel off of the jacket on a custom order might be a good idea for individuals wanting to avoid this effect...
