    Bit the bullet on a Schott 530. It's a 530 with some custom features by the retailer, Ball & Buck in Boston. I think the leather is the same as a standard 530 but Ball & Buck added their own plaid cotton lining, label, underarm eyelets and antique brass hardware.

    MSRP is the same as a 530 from Schott. It worked out well as I could try it on and was able to buy at a nice discount. It's soft off the rack which was important to me. I can't wear it to work so it would take forever to break in a stiffer jacket. I like the medium brown color and slight pebble grain waxy cowhide. While it's not a custom Aero, I think it will serve my needs for years to come.

    Thanks again @Watchman1, appreciate your thoughts.


    One more with the grain:

    Wow...that one looks better than mine actually....:drool:

    Yes, that is a very underrated jacket. Thanks for the quality pics. You will have that jacket for the rest of your life and may you wear it in good health! ;)
