    Black Connolly Aero HWM

    Bought this from @Jrolfe in November (which he bought from @dan_t not too long before: reference original classified postings below)

    It has not been worn much after Dan_t obtained it from Aero. Unfortunately, I have not worn it all since November and can’t justify it just hanging in my closet, posting (with hesitancy) just in case somebody else would be interested in such a nice Connolly jacket and will give it the wearing it deserves. Prefer my jackets (or coats :) ) to fall below my waist line a couple inches specially since I do not tuck my shirt in. Fit is excellent. Numbers taken from precious listings. $500 USD +shipping.

    Marked as a 42 (true to size unlike newer Aero jackets)

    Pit to pit: 24-24.5"
    Shoulders: 19.25-20"
    Sleeves: 25 1/4"
    Back: 25 1/2"

    - I will post pics tonight of the jacket with measurements (to confirm above

    Nice if I did not already own a shorter version of this jacket I would be in the hunt.

    I just got a Connolly Halfbelt a short while back. Really beautiful leather - I see now why it was used for the seats of Rolls Royces and Spitfires. Beautiful and tough leather.

    This really is a great jacket! I sold this to Ken. Worth every penny he’s asking for. A jacket that when you put on it hardly feels like it’s on. Very comfortable.

    I can't believe that this is still around.
    I received this directly from Denny at Aero & it's a stunner. Sometimes I wonder why I ever let it go, but then I remember that it sat there for a couple of years and was worn about 2 times....
