    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.

    Yeah, I saw that now that I googled...

    http://www.levi.com/SE/sv_SE/levi/p/709300007

    That's their official site. I think it's just the fold of the jacket thats off and I can deal with that myself

    I have the same initial reaction, but I'd be curious to see it styled.
