    Leather quality on new Highwayman

    Indeed the leather is quite rough and dry on the back. Amanda says, this is normal though :-/ What kind of conditioner would you recommend? Anyway I would expect, that a new jacket does not need any kind of treatment!

    Advice on buying Aero Rocker/Highwayman

    Well, that's what I did. Sent Amanda my measurements and that I would like to have a close fit. I also told her that I recently tried on a size 40, which was basically fine, besides that I found the waist way to large. So she offered me to do some tapering "by an inch or so, whatever I feel...
