And can you guys also make a brief comparison between the FQHH Aero uses and the comp weight cowhide Vanson uses, trying to decide between a Vanson Enfield, Thurston SF collab racer, or an Aero Fontana racer.
Yes, it's called the Tight Fit Enfield. The cost of the Tight Fit Enfield in Comp. Weight Leather is $649.99. The Tight Fit Enfield is slimmer through the arms, shoulders, and chest, and the armholes are situated a bit higher than on the Standard Enfield.
Regarding Aero's CXL FQHH and Steerhide verses Vanson's Comp. Weight Cowhide Leather, the CXL hides feel more "wet" because of all of the oils that are packed into them in the tanning process. Also, a lot of it comes down to color... If you want a lighter brown, Vanson's Octagon is a very good choice, if you want a darker brown, nothing can compare to Aero's CXL Brown, if you want black, both Aero and Vanson have excellent blacks, if you want cordovan, Aero's CXL Cordovan is the only way to go!
Hope this helps...
