    Sweaters?

    I bought most of my sweaters from ebay, and had great results. Like new condition, and maybe 1/3 the price. Some of the hand knit makers are REALLY expensive, $300-400 new, but you can find them used for $50-70. Quite a bargain. Of course, I now own four plastic tubs full of sweaters, so...

    Sweaters?

    Outdoor Knitwear Aero Leather Pendleton North Sea Clothing Black Sheep There's a variety of Irish brands that do hand knit fisherman sweaters... I don't know them all very well, but have picked up a bunch of different ones over the years through ebay (Carraig Donn, Gaeltarra, Blarney Woolen...

    Thoughts on rust contrast stitching?

    I think that looks pretty great, personally. But contrast isn't always what you want, either, so I get it. I also like gold on black quite a bit. Black does go with a lot of colors. (And, well, that's dark seal, as you say, but it's still pretty close to black. Probably more apparently seal...

    Langlitz versus Cal-Leather....how wide is the gap? Asking for a friend

    That center zip is especially awesome. Essential.

    Langlitz versus Cal-Leather....how wide is the gap? Asking for a friend

    I have several jackets from both, and I wouldn't say there's a gap between them. Langlitz is Langlitz, and Cal is Cal.

    New Aero questions

    If you know your measurements and are confident, there's no reason not to go with Aero. Thurston Bros. give great service but so does Aero, and right now the cost savings from going direct is significant.

    Aero Half Belt Deluxe 44 Excellent!

    One of the best styles from Aero, and that's a great tartan lining on yours.

    Finds and Deals - Leather Jacket Edition

    That thing is riddled with mold. Every one of those spots. It's garbage. Maybe it could be treated, if caught early but it looks already half eaten, and I wouldn't want to let it inside the house to spread to the rest of my collection. People who sell things like that are about a step above...

    New Aero Website looks Great!!!

    Sweet, this is so helpful. Along those lines, it would also be nice when searching the ready-made jackets if we could select multiple categories. Eg, stock, blue label, militaria, apprentice, etc. I usually just want to filter to my size, and I would like to see anything available in my size...

    Finds and Deals - Leather Jacket Edition

    Man, for years it seemed like everything that came up for sale was a Large/42, lately everything seems to be a Small, 38, or 36. I wonder what drives such trends.

    Impossible to contact Aero Leather Clothing with the new website

    The Aero website should, too. I know they are aware of the problem, because I brought it to their attention in another thread. Hopefully they will have this fixed shortly, but it really shouldn't take long to make a correction like this. It's definitely going to harm their business in the short...

    Oak Street Bootmakers Trench Boot size 8

    I've tried wearing shoes with leather soles before, but I find the lack of traction to be a major drawback, so I haven't worn any enough to wear them through. I don't think I could get used to it. But I have had boots with rubber lug soles rebuilt and like anything else they do wear out with...

    Oak Street Bootmakers Trench Boot size 8

    They do have boots in other leathers, so maybe you could buy something in a leather that is less creasey, and then exchange for what you really wanted once you get the size dialed in.

    Oak Street Bootmakers Trench Boot size 8

    They run true to size. If you order your Bannock size, assuming you have a medium width foot, you should be good. They have fit advice information on the website and you can ask them questions. I might try again with a half size bigger, but as strict as they are on returns, I'll be a lot more...

    Oak Street Bootmakers Trench Boot size 8

    Agreed, they are fantastic. I just wish they made wide sizes, or I could have exchanged for a half-size larger.

    New Aero Website looks Great!!!

    I've been seeing some emails I've sent to Aero bouncing back undeliverable. I hope your IT staff can get the issue sorted out. It would be a shame to have the new website launch ruined by communications problems that prevent sales or otherwise spoil the experience.
