 Well first of all, I would never even begin to compare MMM to Aero. The only thing they'd have in common is that they're constructed with the hide of a dead animal.  So let me attempt to be more objective here: - Aero offers FQHH leather, a leather which simply has different properties than other more common leathers. It has a different sheen, grain, heft, patina. It's similar to the difference between shell cordovan and calf skin. - Aero jackets are made by highly...

To clarify, the chest size is the actual measurement? Or is the advised chest size?
