Leather Jackets: Post Pictures of the Best You've Seen/Owned? - Page 12

Here is my Aero Leather Stockman reviewed with pics posted on Fedora Lounge:

I also have a Gibson & Barnes Indy jacket in goat which is also a superb leather jacket. The G&B is more suitable for 50s and up as it is a much lighter-weight than my Stockman, which I wear almost daily.

The Aero is the best piece of clothing I have ever bought, hands down.

can you please clarify your post? which post & jacket were you referring to?

IMO the jacket looks very large on you. Too large. Is that how you are suppose to wear it? Is that how you wanted the jacket to look? The jacket on you kinda reminds me of the guy in this thread => http://www.styleforum.net/showthread.php?t=61663

At the time when I took these, the jacket was a week old or so. Please remember that FQHH is like armor, and does not drape at all when new, or in the first few years of ownership.

Even now, after pounding it by wearing it daily - and at night too at home to soften the leather, it still is very stiff, except it drapes a little bit better. I was concerned when I first got it that indeed it was like a tent, but now is quite snug. The Aero experts know their shyte, and it is a tad loose with just a shirt, but is quite snug and comfortable, even with a thick sweater. I have to unbutton it when sitting as well.

Here are my 3 leather jackets. Apologies for the frankly shite photos Belstaff Panther Belstaff Brad Both the Belstaff jackets are, unsurprisingly, utterly amazing. Phenominal leather, I hope my grandchildren will be wearing them in 70 years time! Edwin leather jacket - Picked this up very cheap. Obviously not in the same league as the Belstaffs but still decent enough for knocking about in. Some nice little touches like the rainbow selvage denim bits. The asymetrical pockets wind me up abit, but as I paid a tenth of the retail price I'm notgoing to moan too much. Fits really well.

I apologize for not being more precise with my language, I will be more so now.

When I received the jacket in March 2008 it was rather tent-like because it did not drape at all, and the body was especially inflexible, similar to a medieval knight's armor would be around the torso.

Since then, and with alot of wear and hand-rolling/kneading similar to what a pizza maker does to the dough prior to laying the sauce out, it has become softer and more flexible. As such, it now hangs/drapes much closer to by body - not by shrinking but by molding to my shape.

I knew you would ask for photos, so I promise to have them up in a day or two, and now that it's colder, I will wear more appropriate clothes than the sweats I had in the pics you saw. I have compared how it looks now in the mirror to back then, and it really is night and day, so I expect with say, another 2 years of heavy wear it will be perfect.

Before ordering the jacket I very carefully measured myself in all of the key placements Aero asked for, and went to a tailor to confirm the results. I pressed upon Aero that I wanted a slim-fitting jacket, which the Stockman, unlike the Cheyenne or Veste de Rallye, is designed to be. I even sent pictures of competitors' slim-fitting jackets that were similar in style to the Stockman and they "got it."

Has anyone tried this PRPS jacket? I'm wondering about the fit and quality of the leather. Thoughts on style?

the only leather jacket i currently own... the unevenness in the color is not due to any "distressing". it is object-dyed so that is why it has such a look carol christian poell
