    How much this Badalassi hide adds to the standart price of Hooch Hauler made of Horween CXL HH?

    It is not a light weight jacket at all - I don't have a scale and when comparing my two tone Sunburst (tumbled FQHH) the Badalassi Hooch Hauler is heavier

    The more I look at it this is precisely the kind of two tone I would do. It's subtle but it's there. Really well done. Would love to see some more pics of you wearing it but not holding the phone! I know, sorry, I'm high maintenance!

    Nice grain; reminds me of goat. I like the subtlety of this two-tone; I think, in the long run, that makes it much more wearable. LOvely design.

    That is some good grain. That is one Badalassi jacket! (yeah there's a dodgy pun in there). I really like the two-tone.

    Just too amazing for words...
    What's the feel of the Badalassi leather?

    Thanks! It feels soft, kind of supple despite it's quite heavy and substantial and luxurious like an expensive leather sofa

    Great jacket! I bought a Hooch Hauler last year in black Italian HH -- my first ever Aero Leather Jacket.

    I was talking to Ken (Aero Leather) today. He said that they basically don't have any stock left of Badalassi but the good thing is that they consider buying more from Carlo Badalassi - due to the additional work with this leather type (it is thicker and therefore needs to be re-worked by Aero to be used for jackets) this will be more expensive than Vicenza - in my opinion it is definitely worth the price and apart from the stitching quality (compared to Freewheelers and RMC) I no longer see a reason to search for 3 times more expensive leather jackets. Till beginning of this week my "grail jacket" was the Caboose from Freewheelers but now I think both are on the same level (in my opinion). Aero's Badalassi is more and more my favorite type of leather....I simply love everything about this leather even if it is no horsehide which is the most popular leather!!
