i love my aerostich gear.

the combat lite boots are amazing, comfortble to walk in for hours, and classic looking under a pair of pants.

their elkskin roper gloves are soft enough to slap someone, but tough enough to last a long time of wear, much thicker than deerskin

i don't have a "stich suit" i only have their pants, saving $ for the roacrafter jacket to match my pants.

THE BEST thing about aerostich, is their customer service, seriously, those guys and gals are great. yes, some of the gear is kinda goofy, i never thought i'd wear any of it, but after wearing it, i'll never wear anything else.

It is great gear, and I agree with your comments on the customer service. It is not "trendy" riding gear - if you want to look like a 60's cafe racer guy it's not the gear for you (although they now have a wax cotton version of the Darien which sort of actually does look a bit like a belstaff), but it is very practical gear, and incredibly tough and hard wearing. It's the best general purpose waterproof gear I've had. I am officially a convert.

Before he did it, I'd have said it couldn't be done.

I didn't get the T shirt. I saw them, but didn't get one.

Glad to see one of us hit the Rolling Stone.


I bought their combat boot and love it. Not sure I can stomach the suit though, notwithstanding that it would be convenient with business casual that I wear every day but Friday.

Hey that's pretty cool! BTW, I think that bench would fit perfectly on top of your panniers.

Triumph should include your picture in their digital magazine. No airbrushing or sparkly flashes to catch the chrome rims. Just an honest to goodness serious rider and bike. Well done!

Getting in touch with my inner hooligan.
