Looking for the perfect shearling/aviator jacket

Hey guys! I'm more of a lurker, but I've reached a dilemma which requires me to post a thread...I'm looking for the perfect leather jacket which has a fur/shearling interior, and it's more difficult than I thought it would be!

I want it to be slim fitting (a lot of them tend to get rather bulky) and I want it to have minimal detailing, and I'm not too sure of what else!

I do like this one

but it's got too much going on (Burberry Prorsum - AW 2010)! Anyone know of anything like that without the second collar and perhaps a slightly different interior?

Any help about any jackets of this type would be appreciated! (I've looked through most of the older threads and I can't find much of use)

this may or may not be what you're looking for.

get a custom aero leather jacket @ aeroleatherclothing.com

they're flight jackets can be fitted, and you can choose a thinner collar.

oh. and they'll last longer than you'll live

See - this is where the dilemma lies! I'm not too keen on the military replicas or the 'traditional' styles (such as the ones on overland and orvis) I'm looking for more of a fashion piece with a younger look to it - keep the suggestions coming though

Second the Black Label suggestion. I tried it on at the RL in Tysons Corner, DC a month ago and its nice.

Like the style, it's perfect, not keen on the colour of the leather... There is this one though, which I am keen on! http://www.ralphlauren.com/product/i...entPage=family the fact that it's suede and not leather doesn't bug me, and I quite like the black shearling on brown suede, anyway that's just a potentiality, any other suggestions are still appreciated.

If you like the RLBL one, you could probably wait a season or two and see if they come out with another color. I remember seeing the same jacket in a purple-tinged dark grey at the same store.
