    What Jacket Are You Wearing Today?

    It’s a perfect fit on you! LL’s standard horse comes in a huge variance across the different batches, I have found. While my Lightning is really nice, I never really liked the leather on my Dom, so I swapped it for a sheep version. Glad you like the hide on yours, as I find the very unique...

    Cant do better than a Dominator. So great! Is that the standard horsehide?

    Epic look there!

    First post - looking for advice for a "do it all" jacket (Aero Premier Highwayman - Belmondo style)

    Hm, I am really biased, as I order all my jackets with inside pockets. For my personal usage, that´s more functional in a travel situation to stow my wallet and smartphone. That said, the handwarmer pockets on the HWM are pretty deep, and if I put my phone there I ever had an issue with it...

    Midnight-Blue straight outta the box.

    There you go: One in Cordo, one in Midnight Blue. The later has a rather dramatic fade into something like grey-brown. Looks good, but is miles away from the rich blue it originally sports (look at the closeup, including the rather awful albeit functional current zipper). Cordo is always full of...

    Langlitz cowhide scent? aroma?

    Interesting. I have a Langlitz in rough-out cow, and the smell is: NONE. It´s pretty new, so this comes as quite a surprise, albeit not a problem as my wife usually complains about the "stench" of even the classiest Shinki...

    Good choice. Will look awesome on your frame! Front dop is negligable. I´d say, half an inch max (1-1,5cm). I have CXL, and it works just fine. Badalassi seems like a natural choice too, but a bit depending on the look you want to achieve in the long run. If you´re ok with super-rugged (as in...

    Very rainy day. Aero Prime HWM in Midnight-Blue CXL horse.

    What Jacket Are You Wearing Today?

    It’s very substantial. The lining as well. A super sturdy sailcloth. Cotton, but the tough kind. I am on kind of a road trip with my wife, travelling from the North Sea all the way to the Czech border. Yesterday, I asked my wife to pass me the jacket from the backseat while I was driving as I...

    What Jacket Are You Wearing Today?

    Have this with me a lot, since the weather turned really autumnal. ShipJohn/Langlitz collab. This one is HEAVY. If @ton312 ‘s new The Majestic was a PatekPhillipe, this would be a G-Shock (or Rolex SeaDweller, just to not hurt any feelings…). I love it, and I do hope I will wear it a lot...

    I love it already! Will look superb once more broken in. A well-fitting HWM in CXL leather is hard to beat as a daily driver in the cooler months, IMO.

    Jackets and t-shirt sleeves

    No useful tips here, just sympathy: have that in one Aero Board Racer too (the other one somehow had slightly more accommodating armholes), and it’s simply a nuisance. i really can’t think of any way to remedy this, as the armhole will simply not get any bigger.

    Aero Leather question

    Understood, but this ist true for most of us. You will need to do some talking to Aero, but they are pretty used to getting the fit right. If all fails, and the jacket just doesn’t fit (which happened to me one time in some ten orders from Aero), they will declare a „return“ and you won’t have...
