Aero Board Racer, size 44, Blackened Brown Horsehide
A gorgeous custom jacket from Thurston Bros. Rough Wear! This is an Aero Board Racer in size 44. The Aero Board Racer is Aero's interpretation of a Buco J-100-era leather riding jacket. It's made with Blackened Brown Vicenza Horsehide, which is a full grain veg-tanned leather! This jacket features a two-pocket front, zip sleeves, nickel hardware, nickel diamond pulls on pockets, Olive Drab stitching and Minto Check Tweed lightweight wool lining. All pockets are lined with velvety soft, yet super durable moleskin. Cotton sateen in sleeves. This jacket has a left side interior pocket with no closure.
The jacket is brand new with tags. This 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 Blackened Brown Vicenza is a unique color combination--it is a Dark Seal Vicenza HH with a Black overdye. The initial result is a warm black color that will develop dark brown wear as the jacket breaks in over years of weathering!
