What jacket(s) are you wearing at the moment?

The only thing that really makes our jackets look better is wear and tear... ;)
I agree on that :) visually the jacket already looks great for me...but i always wanted to add some nice nose art. Therefore, i want to start this project with this jacket as i didnt pay much as well. I would not do nose art on the 23rd Fighter Grp i got for example

Which is already patched, isn’t it ?

what art did you plan ? Just a chest patch or art back ?
FOr the patch i will use the one i got from Sean. See below the photo.
Then i want to check with Anne from Netherlands (found her on facebook and her prices are very good and i think she does a pretty good job) to paint something but i am still not sure what exactly. Probably a bomber plane dropping some bombs

I would like to find some nice photos of back art to get inspiration. Have to investigate a bit.


I also wanna paint some little bombs on the right chest in yellow.

Maybe a bit too much for some of you . But that is how i always imagined my customed jacket and would like to see how it will end up looking :)

ok, big project.

Just a note, I find it strange to put on a patch of fighter squadron and paint bombs and a bomber. ;)

Why not find a nose art from a fighter.

Maybe I am too rigid on the historical coherence, but I find it a shame to mix.

Good point actually! Did not realize the mix i was doing. Thanks for the input!

If you have some suggestion for a fighter paint back, please share with me by message. I would be thankful

Or i will get a Bombardment Squadron patch instead cause i do love those bombs on the right side chest :)

Aero Barnstormer again today. I bloody love this jacket/coat and it just happens to be almost the most practical leather jacket I own. The CXL FQHH is also probably the most beautiful leather out of all my jackets.

Must weigh more than you do !
Have had 8 or so Aero FQHH , they all stood up on their own, were too heavy and bulky for my personal tastes so i applaud (& envy) anyone who can get on with them . Took me many years & a lot of dosh before i gave up on them .

I actually haven't had any bother with it whatsoever. Never troubled me and it's also softened up over the years as well. They're great jackets and the leather is just stunning.
