    I can appreciate the paneling work but think it would look better if it were more subtle to the eye, like tone on tone stitching

    but tbh, I think if you're spending that much on a jacket it should fit proper and look flattering, that one's doing neither

    is it just me or my toj actually feels thicker than my stooges (leather code LP). When I was wearing it, the stooges definitely is lighter. however, i don't think it's a fair comparison since the stooges is more of a 46 as for the toj is a stock 48.

    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?

    Been eyeing that jacket too but thinking of having Aero put a regular A2 collar on there instead of the ribbed collar. I think the golden camel is a bit more classic. I e-mailed Thurston btw and they quoted me $899 on the jacket.

    depends on year and model. my heavy calf stooges does not feel lighter than the toj.

    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.

    $899? Thats a good bit more than the £400 that is quoted on their website. Is the price increase inly because of you collar mod you think?

    No I believe they said that was the stock offering. £400 = $600 and maybe there are additional fees associated with shipping, customs, etc to the States?

    calf is definitely heavier than lamb in general. my stooges is a great jacket, but it annoys me to know that there's a jacket half the price with thicker lamb. or maybe it's due to the treatment. it's hammered lamb after all. I probably shouldn't expect a thick lamb (?)

    Yes, thick lamb is called sheep. In all seriousness, when someone is trying to sell something as especially thick lamb, that's a red flag. Same with calfskin. If you have a calfskin jacket that's as thick as steerhide, then it's probably not actually from a calf.

    well both my toj and stooges are calf so the comparison works in this case. lamb is always lighter, my plinth stooges with hidden hood is lamb, its lighter but easiest to wear of my leathers.

    def part of it but if they don't mark down customs and you get that fee won't it be almost same?
