    It's been exactly 1 year since I bought my first Aero jacket. It was supposed to be a fit jacket from Carrie @ TB, but I ended up keeping the jacket based on the input from all the experienced forum members. I am glad I did. Originally, I was set on a black BR in size 38, and this dark seal Vicenza in 36 seemed a little tight all around, a little too long on the sleeves and the length. It didn't take much time for the leather to break in, but after a year (one season to be exact), the jacket has molded to my body with some wonderful grain texture and creases in all the right places. Sleeves have shortened about half an inch to perfect length as well, and the high armhole doesn't dig into my underarm as it used to. The color of dark seal also works so well with different styles of outfits (from ripped jeans to semiformal). This is certainly a keeper, and I plan to wear it for years to come. The only challenge is to stay in shape to be able to fit into a jacket that leaves so little margin for any weight gain. :).

    Thanks for the update. It is always great to see jackets age and progress. All to often we see a review of a great NEW jacket and we never see it again. Looks great!

    Well done, although you must keep off future weight gain, only reason to have possibly gone with a 38.

    Awesome review and update! One question regarding the jacket length: is it 25" from collar to hem all around or is the front slightly longer than the back?

    Any help is appreciated
