    So this is my Aero Seven. I've worn it basically every day since November, when I got it.

    These are from the day I got it.

    It's really soft now and basically all the stiffness is gone except in a few areas.

    So I would highly recommend this jacket but be prepared for how stiff this leather is out of the box. This jacket is almost painful to wear at first. Some may not recommend doing water stuff to jackets but for this one I feel like I got great results with 45 minutes in cool water and wearing till it was mostly dry.

    Looks great man. Perfect fit. Maybe it's just me but I love that initial stiffness. Yeah they look better once broken in but man nothing beats that initial suit of leather armor feel. Like a Roman gladiator. I'm always a bit sad when they fully yield and drape!

    Well done. One of the best looking Aero's I've seen in a while...

    The jackets got older but you seem to have got younger... how does that work! Nice jacket.

    Is the seven the slimmed down version of a Sheene? I'm old and I get confused. It's a really great trim pattern either way but I'm not sure I've heard of it.

    It's the board racer with a dress collar. I think the board racer is their cafe racer.

    Makes sense. Looks to be just that. Smashing jacket man. Enjoy!

    owners of Aero FQHH jackets, got a question. This has been the main torment when it comes to FQHH, in cold temperature, does the leather stiffen even when it's considered broken in? My experience is even after much wear/years/treatment, when it's cold, before my body warms it up, the deeply pregnated wax still stiffens it up. Let me know if this has been experienced.

    Marginally, but yeah. I've had a fully broken in FQHH and while you couldn't notice any difference in the cold weather, the jacket was twice as pliable during summer and probably the softest heavyweight jacket I've ever handled. But it doesn't revert anywhere near it's former out of the box state once you wear it a little.

    I've noticed this as well but I wouldn't say it bothers me or has hindered my experience with the jacket. The little bit of stiff gets knocked out after 15 minutes or so and i wouldn't say it feels like it isn't broken in.

    nice nice, thanks everybody! my black FQHH is still only a few wearings-old, so, no need to worry.
