    I love the rich Connolly steer hide the same hide Rolls-Royce uses for their cars. The Connolly hide does show some wear nice patina let this robust hide still looks very good. Brass hardware. This is a rare early aero and was originally purchased in Covent Garden, London in the early 80s.
    I had Johnson Leathers alter this Aero by bringing in the shoulders which also removed room in the chest, tapper the arms, and to use pieces of the removed hide to line the cuffs
    Chest pit to pit 22
    Shoulders 18.25
    Back from the base of the neck 26.25
    Sleeves 25
    The jacket has good movement due to the complex shoulder construction
    $450 shipped CONUS PP F&F

    This Connolly has developed a real-world patina without looking worn out. honest wear that can not be duplicated quickly or artificially. whoever buys this jacket should be happy

    What an incredible hide!

    I would highly recommend that you re-title the thread to label this a size 40, because your alterations make it fit like a (particularly slim) 40, maybe even 38. There are also more 40s than 44s on this forum, so you're more likely to find the right buyer.

    I do not know how to edit title, yet I see some here are able to do so

    This looks like an awesome jacket. Kind of jealous. I think it might be on the just too tight side for me, and boy am I tempted.

    GLWS!

    With the action back and supple hide, it has a lot of mobility comfortable jacket. JL did a stellar job on the resizing. Alan did the work himself.
