    Couldn't remember if I thanked you for this post. I've already referred a couple people to it who were looking for a new jacket and I'm still considering one for myself. So thanks very much, very good info.
    PSA for anyone looking to buy an Aero jacket: Aero have just instituted a substantial price increase, per their UK website. As an example, the Highwayman (the very first jacket posted in this thread) is now up to 500 GBP (formerly 425 GBP). At today's exchange rate (per xe.com) of $1.60/GBP, that is a $120 increase. However, the Aero USA eBay store is still holding prices level for now. It is my guess that Aero USA will also increase prices once the current listings are over. So if you want an Aero jacket it may be best to buy via the US eBay store now, otherwise you are probably looking at a lot more dough for your jacket. Edit: as of 8PM Eastern the prices on the Aero USA eBay store have been revised to reflect the higher prices. I hope everybody who was looking to get one jumped on it quickly.

    I have no personal experience with that situation but I believe you are correct. They do not give refunds but they'll make you another jacket. I have seen them post "returned" jackets on eBay and their UK website at significant discount.

    Some pics ... brown FQHH Highwayman:

    +1, the american flag could possibly be construed as a logo, which is anathema to everything SF stands for

    You look like a well-dressed guy in your avatar, but your jacket and sunglasses just don't work.

    Keep the shades basic - as they were intended to be, not as some funky hybrid combining aviator elements with shooter glasses, which with that jacket makes you look like you're re-living the glory days of whatever. Replace with these (basic aviators, and an aviator jacket that doesn't scream, "I'm a military repro". We already know aviators are military inspired, it doesn't need all the insignia to go along with it. Is the lining of some "Betsy" pinup next to a WWII fighter plane?):

    edit: Or you could probably fit into one of hitokiri's cucinelli bomber jackets if you've got $900 to spare.

    it's beyond the flag, it's the design of the pockets patch and the peculiar black zipper

    that jacket reminds me of this cuz of the patch pockets, yet one is overdesigned and the other is a grail (HEDI DIOR [email protected]!) [​IMG] before someone mentions "fit" realize that the jacket alwaysdressed is wearing would fit him far better than any of slimanes offerings

    Don't you like this one or what?

    looks like someone skinned my dog (a beagle-pitbull mix) and put her on the front of an already somewhat unattractive jacket.
