    BTW, I had two Eastman B3 jackets, one time worn, and the pile on that fleece looks better than either. Well done Aero.

    Hi everyone.
    Thanks for the replies!
    I'll wear the hell out of it and let the bulge drop down gradually as you suggest.
    Thanks to Ken and the lads for delivering it right in time.

    BTW. was wearing it today and there definitely more stares going my way. So, this is for those who are on the fence about getting their onwn B3, you'll definitely receive lots of glances from passerbys.

    This is definitely a unique color combination right there. Never seen a B3 with a full sleeve in the same color as the trim before. Looks dope!

    Hey! Nice fitting jacket!
    I notice that the fur on your left sleeve is showing some signs of wear and tear. Does that happen often>?

    It didn’t wear really it’s just the stitches holding the fur down in the seem

    Here’s an aero b-3 I bought that I returned because it was too short in the front and cuffs too tight, otherwise I loved it 7A06122F-96F0-4D25-A226-7EA7D82F5C7C.jpeg B425A70B-DD00-4DAE-A315-1196DC95ED6E.jpeg 802C6390-D81C-41CA-B798-E049EC90298C.jpeg

    Thank you. I specifically asked Ken for some straighter fur and to trim down the sleeve and the end of the waist a bit. No Teddy bear effects haha

    Oh I remember your post from a while back
    Weren't you trying to decide between an Eastman and an Aero, due to sleeve length?

    I guess that would depend on the leather you choose?
    The Simmons Bilt I previously had used Blattwerk horsehide in seal, and that created a clearer contrast as opposed to the Aero Vicenza horse also in seal brown.

    Whoa !!! Those pictures are waaaay better. I love it man ! I like the length on yours too. WhAts the length anyways ? And sleeve length too ?
    Looks good with the outfit you got on too. I love wearing olive drap or khaki color pants with my aero b-3. I think jeans look good and classic too but I love how the color of the fleece plays off the natural tones of the pants way better. It just gets better with time. The leather will develop creases where your arms bend and it will start forming to your body.
