    I selling this fine example of an Aero jacket to replenish funds recently expended on multiple jackets. I like the jacket very much brought it from Ken when he hosted a jacket forum and still actively ran Aero. I am 175 lbs. 5-9 with a 43 chest, 34 waisted and it fits well. I would describe the size a true to trim 44 perhaps a roomy 42, not two sizes large like Aero's current HWM. The only fault I find is the ball is missing from one of the sleeve zippers pulls. $450
    Pit to pit 24.5 including
    Hem 20.5 expanded, 19 sinched
    Shoulders 20.5 outside of the shoulder gusset
    Arms along the curve 25.5

    Wow!

    Unique jacket, early Aero, Connolly Steerhide, makers backstory from a respected seller. Jacket has a lot going for it in the huge leather jacket world.

    This indeed is something special and rare. It's a so called Motorcycle Highwayman in its most original form, exactly as it was advertised in Aero's paper ad flyer. They've stopped making these or maybe replaced them with a zip sleeve HWM currently in the MC line but this one's my favorite.

    It's all in the feel, and the smell of this leather. I owned a highwayman briefly with this leather, however the sleeves were almost 2" too short. It's also the chosen type of leather used in Rolls Royce automobiles for many years before they ( Connolly )shut down. Most likely priced themselves out of the market. Google search the name, you will find a lot.

    If you are comfortable wearing a waist-length jacket, This connoly HWM is an ace. This is the jacket I would wear when I attended business and social dinner parties with my wife
