      Thanks alot, PL ! As per SB their leather is only CT - however, I'm sure Horween will know exactlyn (better). Received my SB Roadster 2 days ago and it's great ! Btw, I like and appreciate your introduction "no comments on fitting and maker ..." when introducing a new jacket. Way too many fan boys around, imho ;-)
      Cheers,

      Hi PL,

      I'm Roger, and an absolute beginner regarding leather jackets. I've read here on TFL for > 1 year n u seem 2 be 1 of the few who share my pragmatic approach that SB jackets r an option. What do u know bout SB "Warhawk" ? Same as Aero's CXL FQHH, just w/o " extra hand-polish" ? Can you pls, clarify ?

      Cheers,
      Roger

        Hi Roger

        Warhawk is CXL without the hand glazing ( the shines top coat applied to finish CXL)

        The tanning and processing is identical .... This isn't SB propaganda, I spoke to Nick and Skip Horween about it. The SB colours are slightly different to Aero's this was because Aero did not want SB using the same leather as them and Horween accommodated ....
