Aero 1938 A-2 in Seal Vicenza Horsehide        
In the past, they've sold so quickly that we haven't had time to get them on the website.  However, hopefully, this time we'll get them up! Here are a few photos of the general Thedi fit--   We're all sold out of the diamond quilt, but we have no quilt and rectangle quilt left...
Thedi Cafe' Racers are back in stock in sizes 40, 42, and 44. We have specified these in an upgraded Italian Horsehide and they're very, very nice! The fit is slim, with a very nice shape!  $949.99 USD    
I would gander that the Italian is about as tough as the oil pull.  The two are about the same weight too.   Our Italian Horsehide isn't CXL, it's vegetable tanned.  CXL is combination tanned, which means it's both chrome and vegetable tanned...

We sourced the Italian Horsehide for our Aero custom builds because we had a pretty large grouping of customers who wanted horsehide that was a bit lighter and softer than CXL FQHH and Steer.  Further, many of our customers didn't want to have to have an extended break in period on their new jacket.  What I would say is the following--If you want a lighter, softer, and more easily broken in leather, the Italian is your best bet...(you may also be interested in Aero's...
 Hi scrolls, The only leather that's an upcharge for standard Civilian Aero jackets is the Italian Horsehide (+$200 USD).  For all other leathers, the base price is usually $1099.99 or $1199.99 USD.  Horween's CXL leathers are full grain too, but it's only an upcharge for CXL leathers on the flight jackets...  For Aero's Civilian Jackets, most people consider the CXL Front Quarter Horsehide the default leather.  This is full grain and there's no upcharge for this leather. ...
This jacket is currently in production...
The Oil Pull isn't one of Aero's "toughest" leathers, but it is quite soft.  For a leather that's a bit tougher and will develop really well over time, check out the CXL FQHH/Steer or the new Italain hides...both of these will develop more creasing and color variation, which is what a lot of our customers like...
