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...
