    nah. i balked and got a new guitar instead. being in the middle of texas wreaks havoc on my desire for winter wear and i'd probably only get a few weeks of leather jacket use each year. it's not so much the money as it is the principle. aeros deserve to be worn, broken in, and loved.

    it's december 2 and was too warm for a simple hoodie for most of the day. 80 degrees tomorrow. bleh.


    That's cool. I went to a wedding in Dallas in August one year ... it gets hot down there! [​IMG]

    We've been dealing with temps in the 30-40s for better than a month now ...

    I think I'm gonna ask Aero for samples. Really am having trouble making up my mind on the color.

    that is one bad-a** leather jacket. that is the kind of leather i am talking about. i havent seen leather like that rich on a jacket in years.

    what is the ballpark price on these may i ask?


    £430 (as of today, Dec 3 2008). My customizations added nothing to the overall price.

    It's a cordovan colour, "Veste de Rallye" - Heavy Front Quarter Horsehide.

    Here is the Link:

    I would advise that you go to The Fedora Lounge and look under the "Outerwear" tab. There you'll find enough pages of info to keep you reading for a couple of hours. There are a great variety of models and possibilities for customization. Many of the folk on TFL are extremely knowledgeable and passionate about Aero products.

    Hope that helps

    yeah I agree, first its too big on him, secondly the finish just makes it look dirty, thirdly that collar makes him look like a douche (his smug look and 90's haircut/jeans isn't helping either)

    Grundle, yeah I agree. I finally stopped fooling around and e-mailed Mark @ Aero that I wanted a brown Highwayman. Hopefully in 5-6 weeks I'll have mine ....

    Is that the vintage brown or just the normal brown?

    The highwayman looks great though.

    my guess is vintage. hard to tell from the color samples they sent me, but check out his left arm. i doubt he's had it long enough for that kind of distressing.

    would it be correct to assume that this is the wrong places to ask for suggestions for women's leather jackets as well? i want a short -maybe bomber maybe not- leather jacket. i found an awesome one a few years ago but didn't get it when i had the chance and definitely missed out. now i can't find any that i like really at all. help? thanksss

    Lear by the way,

    does that jacket look to fit slim in the correct size? or is it boxy?

    No doubt about it; it fits boxy (but in a nice way). My personal opinion would be that if you are of diminutive proportions, it may envelope you. On a larger framed individual, it's a great look though. Others may think differently of course.

    One thing is for sure, EVERYONE will be asking you where you got it. [​IMG]

    That's exactly what it is, I think I saw that pic on the Aero site, or in some discussion of Aero anyway.
