This is basically perfect.
Let's slim it down if needed and move that arm zipper to the upper sleeve (so it's not the same design!) and call it a day.
Usually, collaborations are derivative from a given manufacturer's designs...for example, when fashion companies work with Aero, they use Aero patterns. They just market the jacket differently...
On a side note, sometimes simple can be a good thing when it comes to leather jackets...our Aero Sonoma Racer in front quarter horsehide is our best selling cafe' racer jacket. The Horween Chromexcel leather is very, very nice, and the design is very simple.
Agreed. Only thing I'd change would be to get rid of that arm zipper entirely and change the zipper toggles. I like the plain YKK / MRS style zipper pulls.
Would probably purchase one for myself. What are they lined with?
Personally, the Aero Fontana is my choice as well..very simple...
Either Black Rayon or Royal Stewart Cotton...at least those are the two standard liners...
I kind of like them. I'm not too picky with zipper pulls. I'd go with standard, but not the ball and chain.
You guys have any idea where I could find pics of cool leather vests? Copping from abroad is nigh impossible here atm (fucking customs) but I wanna see if I can have a guy (who has made leather for me in the past) try and replicate a leather vest. I know I want that, but that´s it xp
If anyone knows of some interesting ones from good brands I´d appreciate it. I´ll look for some in the meantime.
I didn´t remember seeing many vests here and I forgot it´s easy to just look at the pics in the thread. Lazy bum, I know. I´ll do that. Thanks.
What I was thinking (that actually just came to mind) was that I wanted something biker-ish, but not extremely traditional (maybe Julius?), hence the asking for general recs.
