Thanks for you input. Yeah, it will be a great late spring/summer/early fall jacket. I am stil undecided wether to get the pal rust goat version or the natural goat... I guess the natural color will be more versatile.
Anyway, I assume you've ordered from Aero before? Have you been happy with the end result? In your opinion, do you think they will be able to achieve a more modern/fashion slim fit in this jacket, if I ask them for it?
I own a few Aero jackets and yes, I've been thrilled with the results each time. Many of their patterns are actually pretty slim fit to start with, as many vintage jackets were made for "vintage bodies" which were like 5'6", 130 pounds. It's hard to tell from their pics of this jacket just how slim it is, but they can take almost every pattern in from the armholes on down. If you have a great fitting jacket, you can send them those dimensions along with your body dimensions to give them some guidance, and of course describe how you want it to fit.
I agree that the natural would be the most versatile, especially if you are looking to wear it Spring / Summer. I'm sure that you're going to find that their goat suede is even more stunning in person.
