Well, that's the confirmation I needed. The Aero jackets look absolutely fantastic
Congratulations on your purchase. You'll need a stock answer to the many enquiring questions & compliments you'll receive. Very nice indeed.
I know that I want the 'Veste de Rallye' model in cordovan colour. I'm a 6'2" bloke and take 48L in suits (too much time spent at the gym) with 37 inch arm measurement. In other words, even with 48L I usually have to lengthen the sleeves by about 1/2 - 3/4 inch. Does anyone know if 50 inch sounds about right?
I wish there was a shop in which I could try one on first (Scotland is simply too far).
For the lining (UK climate), I'm still undecided between the brown alpaca or brown cotton drill cloth. Does the wool really make it unbearably hot outside of winter?
I'm also looking forward to being able to 'hang' it on the floor and save on closet space.
I'm going to make this happen folks
