This. The jackets that aero did for Nigel Cabourn were incredible, but were really based on styles Aero does anyway, with Nigel prices (so, $3K+). I think that comparing something like aero to Rick is silly, since the styles are so similar, but I'd be hard pressed to name anything designer in the under $2.5K mark that rivals the best of the traditional makers in leather or make quality

Remember that your steerhide wasn't Chromexcel...the Chromexcel Front Quarter Horsehide is easier to break in than the Chromexcel Steerhide...the Chromexcel Steerhide is the REALLY tough stuff!  The blue is good from day one!

 

You're going to have to get us some photos on how your jacket is coming along!

Definitely... when comparing prices, Aero and Vanson start to look like some pretty good bargains!  :fonz:

@RFX45 I feel that low armholes are more restrictive because it limits the sideways range of movement of the sleeve. Higher armholes with slim sleeves follow the body shape more naturally. 

 

As for TOJ's 1.5mm Lamb, I don't know how accurate that is now. There have been reports that lamb thickness varies in quality so the consistency may not be as it once was.

Along with many other manufacturers. I don't want to step on anyone's toes, but can you keep the salesmanship stuff to your Affiliate Thread, and focus on posting unbiased information and photos here?

It's the other way around for me, lower armholes tends to mean wider sleeves so there is still that range when moving my arms while with higher armholes with a slim chest felt a bit more confined and definitely something I had to get used to. I don't notice it anymore but trying it on the first time felt very restrictive and even moving my arms up can be restrictive as there isn't much slack there by the armpit being closer to your body and all. Just different preference I guess.

SW&D users mostly go for slimmer fitting jackets with more of a taper from the chest to midsection and slimmer arms with higher armholes. 

TOJ is so popular on here because they're providing these classic styles with updated fits, which very few companies wish to do. 

Thats not necessarily true but i understand your point...

Maybe I just haven't seen the thick leather you are referring to. Though personally I doubt I'd be inclined to buy anything that's much thicker than the TOJ calf when used for a jacket.

I have a TOj moto in calf as well and its super thick and still has not broken in fully (had it for about 1 year)

And this is pretty much why I would hesitate to buy anything that's even thicker.

Anyone know how man oz. the TOJ calf generally is?

That's with hardware though, no?

I would not base 100% of my opinion on leather thickness on the total weight of a jacket.

I didn't mean the weight of the jacket itself actually. I was asking about the thickness which is generally measured in oz I believe. As LA guy mentioned a little earlier on.

The Shinki horsehide Good Wear Leather uses is 1.1-1.2 mm thick. The Aero horsehide (Horween) is thicker than that.
