    I am your exact size and I've been wondering the same thing. That moto is probably my favorite design I've seen in that style. I check the japan auctions quite a bit and that one has popped up in both S and L recently. But even the chest measurement on the L is like 20cm p2p so I think they fit pretty slim. I made an impulse buy a couple weeks ago of this cracked leather moto from the same collection in M. (I was on the fence if the treated leather and zip-happy design was ugly or cool. I'm still unsure.) I will report back when it arrives.

    gong, just type in "junya watanabe" in English or you can try a translation into kanji. it might not return every result, but a lot of stuff will pop up.

    Update! so that Junya moto jacket just came today and fit is spot on for me. They only thing is it's like a waxed, crackled cotton NOT leather. That probably explains why is was like 200 bucks. Doh :-/ Size M is 20.5" pit-to-pit, 18" shoulder. The leather versions are probably thicker and maybe less pliable, but that's the ballpark sizing. I think diniro has an M in the double rider version. @diniro


    Gong, you probably need XL if they make that size. Or maybe LA Guy will reinstate that Vanson project and you can get it made to your size.

    I saw the large on yjp, been considering it, but the sleeves sound long.

    Can you layer in the medium or only wear a tee? I figure I could swing an M, but mostly concerned with armholes; i can wear a 46 in a 5zip but the armholes cut my circulation off.

    I could probably wear a thin knit plus a tee under it -- which is the extent of my layering anyway. Couldn't do much more than that. Armholes don't actually seem too tight, but this is the cotton version. Hopefully someone with the actual calf version will give more input.

    Hi all,

    I am so attempted by Aero leather jackets. I am still thinking about the style and the leather type. I just have one question: what is the best way to get one Aero jacket in US now?

    Should I book one from Aero directly? Will this have import duties?

    Or should I contact Thurston bros which seems to be the only source providing lots of options in US?

    Any comments and suggestions are welcome! Thanks.

    Check out the Epaulet thread too. Mike @Epaulet is launching their Aero program next week.

    @cxzizou I ordered through Aero directly. Easy process, but I did pay duties - $65, I think.

    @Fenderplyr Here are some fit pics. I was wearing a sweatshirt underneath, so it was a tad snugger. This is a size 38. For reference, I am 5'9.5" and 150-156 lbs, depending on the day.

    hi guys,

    anyone alternatives for the Balmain biker?

    [​IMG][​IMG]




    I like the fit...searching for a biker with similar fit, without belt, not too thick. Maybe cheaper price...won´t pay 3000... and if someone have a good shop in Europe would be appreciated.

    ^ Seems pretty similar to RO Stooges?

    Also am I the only one who thinks that Aero jacket is kind of the epitome of dadcore-leather-jacket?

    Why most RO leather jackets have stupidly long arms?

    It is, but also a really damn good jacket in it's own respect
