• Hey guys, I had to upgrade the VLJ software because the old one is being phased out. Please let me know of any issues in the SITE UPDATE THREAD. Thanks!

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!
Looks banging I'm getting one in the same colour way ,it is redskin with redskin facings isn't it ..fits u exactly as it should

I love yours. Maybe I’ll get a redskin too...
First I need Ken to make me a nice trim tailored A-2 ...

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

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.

Update: Took my jacket out for a spin today.
-6 degree celsius... wasn't even wearing my heavyweight chunkies sweater but still warm enough. This thing is a beast. Can imagine being comfortable in even -15 degree with this!
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.
