    I've just received some very large vet bills, and so a lot of lovely things are going to have to go.... Which is actually a good thing, as these are items that need to be used, not lovingly stored by me as though they were leather objects d'art! ;)

    I'll be creating proper posts for each of these jackets in this Forum this weekend, but for now (and with your indulgence) I've just added links to the listings on my Facebook page, WaterhollowTweed, that's devoted to classic menswear.

    My asking prices are just what I paid for the jackets, or less--but I'm VERY OPEN TO OFFERS! As I said, it's far better that these be worn and enjoyed rather than just "possessed". So, please do PM me with interest and offers!

    All quoted prices include boxed, shipped, and insured shipping in the US with signature delivery; International shipping is available at cost.

    The Facebook page is here:

    https://www.facebook.com/waterhollowtweed/

    I posted some other items there today, so please scroll down to yesterday's post find the Aero jackets--although everything listed will be appearing here soon!

    1) Aero Cafe Racer jacket in Front Quarter Horsehide

    2) Aero 1950s Half-Belt jacket in Teacore Horsehide! c. 40

    3) Aero Highwayman in Front Quarter Horsehide with Shearling Lining and Detachable Mouton Collar! c. 38, 40 (most likely).

    I agree with Guppy's suggestion, and have just worked out how to this, albeit inelegantly!

    Again, I'll be posting these jackets here with all descriptions and pictures at the weekend.

    Christ almighty that Highwayman... I think I'm gonna buy it. I seriously need it more than any other jacket I have. I'll be selling some of my own if this goes thru.

    It would best fit a 40" to 42", depending on how you like to layer--I think a 42 would be a snug fit, and a 40 would be (given my own preferences)a slightly better one. I've varied between a 40 and 42 while owning it, and it always felt right when trying it on--which is all I ever did with it as it was just too nice for me, to be honest! And so it's now time for it to find a new home where it will be used, as well as loved--so offers are very welcome! :)

    Brand new to TFL, landed here after doing a bunch of research and wanting to pull the trigger on my first leather jacket. Really want a lightly used Black Aero Racer. That first one is soo close to what I'm looking for, just no side pockets. Also probably a little snug for me...need to slim back down my growing dad bod.

    Hunt continues. Good luck with the sales!

    I think that the CR is the slimmer fit!

    Small world. I didn't expect to see my first Aero jacket again. Started to read the FB description and thought it sounded familiar until I realized it was penned by me. :D I hope it finally found a loving forever home. ;)
