    That sucks. My wife got me a Aero Cafe Racer for X-mas and it just came a few days ago. I love the fit, though the collar feels a bit constricting. It is actually exactly the right size (I measured the neck) but I feel the stiffness of the leather on my adams apple. I assume it will get better as it breaks in, and I rarely wear the neck of my leather jackets closed anyway, but I'd be pretty bummed if I had to get back in line for a refitted jacket.

    Yes, it arrived today actually. Unfortunately it is HUGE on me. I haven't decided whether to have them remake it and wait another 3 months or just sell it.

    I have a Lost Worlds and not an Aero, but I can say that the horsehide eventually starts to give. I've worn my LW Bedford basically nonstop for the three or four weeks I've had it, and it's only starting to break a little. It's a great coat. If I'd had the time to wait, I probably would have ended up with an Aero, since I love their finishes and the price is right for Americans right now. I do love my LW coat though.

    I was hoping someone here could provide more info.
    I'm not even sure what language it is on their website.



    Did google translate for German/Swiss since they seemed to be the closest, the pricing is in CHF (swiss francs) about $880

    After trying it on recently, I have to say this Nice Collective jacket is one of my new favorite leather jackets out there. I just wish I could find a better image. Everything about this jacket is perfect. [​IMG]

    easily my favorite leather jacket looking to buy one when i get some money [​IMG] http://page2.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/b94405660
    Yeah, even better than RO in my estimation. A julius leather is probably my biggest holy grail (shit I even like the shredded leather shirt).
