Aero Plainsman -- Seal Vincenza Horsehide

 

First and foremost, huge thanks to Carrie at Thurston Bros.  She is an absolute pleasure to deal with.

 

I am not a fan of Horween FQHH and, therefore, I did not previously patronize Aero.  However, Thurston’s introduction of the Vincenza HH changed the playing field.  The Vincenza has far more grain and character than the Horween FQHH, and is also considerably more pliable.  That said, the Vincenza still has the hearty/sturdy feel of HH.  It is a wonderful leather.

 

Given my preference for slender, minimalist cuts, I went with the Plainsman.  The fit is fantastic!  After much contemplation, I went with a 26.5 in back (I am 6’0’’) and I am really pleased with the length.

 

IMHO, the workmanship is good, but not great.  Don't get me wrong . . . I love the jacket.  On the other hand, I have jackets – admittedly more expensive – that have better workmanship ([i]e.g.[/i], more precise edge work and stitching).

That is a sweet jacket. Is that an oxblood color?

Enjoy man!

i the leather horse?

A comment to your jacket but this is based on my style preferences.
1. i would extend the zipper a bit.
2. tighten the back a bit but i know this is hard due to a single piece back

Wow nice

 

First time seeing someone other than Albert, with the movement jacket. Is that horse leather? or did he run out, and went with something else? 

post #11800 of 16653
It's still the horsehide leather. I did see in SZ before where a green goat leather was used for this jacket.

I'm really impressed with his 4th iteration. Loved reading and seeing pictures about his process. Only thing holding me back from that jacket was the fact that the pockets don't have zippers; can't wait for a fifth iteration...

I own the green goat leather from the 4th iteration. It's a one-off that started out as a custom order. The jacket is beautifully constructed with a depth and an unevenness to the colour that makes it really stand out. The goat is tough as hell but really soft and pliable. Plus, when you get Albert's stuff, you know it's all made by him with a level of care and provenance above and beyond anything that has been subcontracted out a dozen different ways.

I felt the same way about no pocket zips, but it's intuitively constructed in a way that having a zip would break the line of the seam. Keeping with the minimalist design, the two inside pockets in the front of the jacket are constructed into the lining much like the MA+ leathers.

I have a question about actual motorcycle armored leather jackets. The only brand I'm familiar with that makes something decently stylish is Belstaff. Great, I now have two of those.

Any of the brands that you guys are discussing have removable armor? Looking for some more options in motorcycle jackets besides Belstaff. I have some nice RL and Himel Bros jackets but no armor in those.

I'd imagine vanson/ aero make some armored models

We sell all of our jackets with the option of an armored shirt underneath...  The Knox Urbane Shirt is a good option:

 

 

Here's a photo of a customer in his Vanson Chopper with the Knox Urbane underneath...
