Aero Board Racer, size 36, Blackened Brown Vicenza Horsehide
A gorgeous custom jacket from Thurston Bros. Rough Wear! This is an Aero Board Racer in Blackened Brown Vicenza Horsehide, size 36 with added body and sleeve length. Extra features make this a distinctly custom jacket: two-pocket front configuration, Buco J-100 style back with straight yoke and no split seam and no kidney panel, Olive Drab contrast stitching, nickel Talon front zipper, nickel diamond pulls on chest pockets, Murray of Tullibardine Ancient lightweight tartan wool lining, left side interior pocket with no closure, and zip-sleeve cuffs. All pockets are lined with velvety soft, yet super durable moleskin.
This jacket is brand new with tags. The Vicenza Horsehide leather is medium weight, so it doesn't have much of a physical break in (compared to Chromexcel FQHH). It has a nice grainy texture and plenty of body.
