    Up for sale is a gorgeous Aero jacket made from Tobacco Badalassi leather size 40. ~ $650 Shipped to CONUS.

    This is a catch and release. The jacket was originally purchased last year from @dudewuttheheck and only worn a couple of times since then. it looks and feels almost like a new jacket. The Badalassi leather is simply amazing. Middle weight but drapes nicely. Somehow this leather reminds me of the Shinki horsehide every time I handle it.

    Any questions, please ask

    Yeah that hide is absolutely stunning. I'm a Shinki fan and Badalassi is probably the only other leather that I really love on a jacket.

    Badalassi widely waries as much as Shinki - different grades, different batches etc. So, Shinki might be lightweight, midweight and quite heavyweight as much as Badalassi.
    For instance, Aero's Badalassi is on a lightweight/midweight side though The Few Mfg Badalassi and BK Badalassi are usually more on a heavyweight side.
    Himel's Shinki is on a lightweight/midweight side though RMC and esp. FW are usually on a heavyweight side.
    So, it depends.

    Lebowski nailed it. Badalassi and Shinki are tanneries, not singular leathers. It really depends on the specific leather they are making. Not everyone gets the same exact type of leather from them.

    Always wanted this makeup since I saw it first and based on at least some of these dimensions, this might work for me. PM sent, we'll have to see about the back length and I'm not sure about that sleeve either.
