    Well friends, my long awaited day has arrived and Christmas has come early:)

    My first Aero jacket is here!!

    First of all I would like to thank everyone here on FL who takes the time to write about and post photos of their prized jackets because without you, I probably would not have even thought about paying $800 for a jacket through the mail sight unseen.

    First the details- Ordered my jacket thru Mark at Aero USA. By the way, I do have to say that I was very impressed with the customer service from Mark. He always responded very promptly to all my inquiries and addressed all my needs. Very pleased with the experience overall.

    Size 42 Highwayman.
    Brown FQHH
    Alpaca lining with gaberdine sleeves
    2 Inside pockets- one g1 and one horizontal in lining
    No outside chest pocket
    All pockets lined in brown corduroy
    Added body and sleeve length
    Vintage brass hardware

    The horsehide is outstanding !!!!!! Heavy, good grain and weighs a ton :) I've owned a Schott 689H and the horsehide doesn't even compare.. Everything everyone has touted about is true!!

    Here are some photos right out of the box and I'll post more with me wearing it soon. Let me know what you think!!





  2. Very nice...! Good pics and example of the unique Aero FQHH that many rave about. Definately one of a kind.
  3. Oustanding jacket Chi-Town, the coduroy pocket lining is a real worthwhile mod. Have fun breaking it in.
    Super jacket!

    Regards, coffee
  4. Jeez, I know it's Grinch-like, but I'm beginning to hate all you guys this week! :)
    LOVELY jacket! I'm going nuts waiting to order mine now.

    Very nice Chi-Town. The brown FQHH certainly is lovely, and I'm sure it'll just keep getting better and better.

    Magnificent Highwayman Chi-Town, looks like the hide has a nice even color and texture on all panels. Enjoy the break in period. I would also start saving now - chances are this will not be your last Aero!

    Thanks HoosierDaddy- it was because of many of your jacket photos and love for Aero FQHH, especially brown, that solidified many of my choices!!

    Thanks Cooperson.. The one option I couldn't get on my jacket that I loved on your jacket was the Common riding lining. It's outstanding.
