I give ideas to my leather designer, and he produces sketches for me to approve, and different leather swatches, and makes them to my size.
I find this collaboration works very well for me..
They're so amazing that you can't post pictures of their awesome fit otherwise we'd all lose our sight due to their sheer EPICNESSSSSS!!!
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.
