    Thank you for the input so far!! The prorsum stuff seems great: http://25.media.tumblr.com/ca07f7c664e22009a3dbfec6c2afe6df/tumblr_mjxa5zovZ31s190mzo1_500.jpg
    But unfortunately there isnt anything interesting this season.

    Does anyone have experience with making a custom leather jacket at aero leathers? Their jackets are from heavy horsehide or steerhide, it seems like they are more on the practical side for actual bikers with boxy chest area, do you think they are able to get this slim leather "rockstar" look?

    placement of that chest pocket is terrible. unless it's very cheap (under 75% of toj cost) i don't see the point.

    This isn't the first leather they put out. They really nail their target audience. Although I buy a lot of their suits, sportcoats and shirts, I wouldn't consider that over a TOJ.

    Judging by the pricing on their other leathers, it'll be $800+

    I know this isn't really the forums, or this threads, particular style of choice, (it's suede to begin with...), but this is one piece I'll be buying the second it hits the stores (should it fit).
