Aero Board Racer, size 40, Natural Vicenza Horsehide
Sold OutSA gorgeous custom jacket from Thurston Bros. Rough Wear! This is an Aero Board Racer in size 40 with added sleeve length. The Aero Board Racer is Aero's interpretation of a Buco J-100-era leather riding jacket. It's made with Natural Vicenza Horsehide, which has a ton of character and grain right out of the box! This jacket features a two-pocket front, zip sleeves, nickel hardware, nickel diamond pulls on chest pockets and navy cotton sateen lining. Left side interior pocket with no closure.
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. The Natural Vicenza will continue to develop its color with exposure to light...check out the final photo to see what happens after 18 hours of sitting in direct sunlight! It tans to a beautiful honey color that is just incredible!
