Figured I'd get some wear into these before writing a review. While I wanted to avoid all the usual praises, the more I wear them, more difficult this seems to be. Hard to be 100% objective when we get something new that we paid major money for but the issue with these pants is that they really are awesome! ► Style - Aero's take on a classic 60's UK motorcycle pants, made by a number of makers such as Rivets, Highwayman, Lewis Leathers, Belstaff, etc. Don't know who came up with the design but I've seen these made by pretty much every major UK motorcycle gear company of the era. ► Material & features - CXL Horsehide. Massively heavy at that, the trousers are heavier than any Aero jacket I've had (so far) but there's of course more leather in 'em. Hardware is all the classic stuff; Talon zipper, cross zip belt buckle, ball & chain zipper pulls, etc. They're 2/3 lined with cotton drill. Realization that Aero's cotton drill is heavier than most of my jeans is entertaining. Two regular & two zippered pockets on the back. Full belt. Etc. Bonus feature is that the matte finish of the CXL makes the pants appear almost tame. Almost. Definitely ain't got that shiny leather pants vibe going on. They don't look obscene and IMO, that's a plus. ► Construction - If we are to agree that Aero jackets are a well made, sturdy pieces of outerwear, these somehow appear to be twice as nice. Hard to say how or why, really, just that they feel monstrously tough. I seriously doubt it you could find a better made leather pants, anywhere, by anyone. I suppose I won't be needing another pair in my entire life. ► Fit - If I am to compare these to any regular jeans, I'd say they are straight fit, high rise cut that's a bit on the slim side. Note that these (seem to) run 100% true to size. Mine are a 32 waist and that's how they fit. All in all, straight, slim & tight around the waist - all of which translates to a perfect pair of motorcycle trousers. They fit me exactly like IH 777's did, which are described as being Super-slim. Note that they don't (drastically) widen at the hips, like most leather pants, which is something I've feared the most while waiting for 'em to arrive. But luckily, no, they're perfectly straight. ► Conclusion - Despite how actually insanely heavy these trousers are, for some reason, I find them to be more comfortable than the Iron Heart super heavies. They just fit right, especially at the waist. I feared these will be just for an occasional wear but I feel I could practically live in them, despite the high waist that I thought would be a problem. To be honest, they're much more serious as a true bike piece than most Aero jackets. All in all, I didn't think I'd be as happy as I am with these. Thought they'd be okay trousers made in outstanding leather (was mostly going for the tea-core effect) but at this point, I can't think what else to get that would feel like an upgrade. Still a long way to go, I barely even began breaking them in but so far, things are progressing nicely and I think I'll wear them more and more as it gets colder, provided I quit being a wuss & start wearing them casually. That'd be the day I'll get rid of jeans altogether. I won't say go get these because 1. these are leather pants, 2. I might have been lucky or have the right build for them so this might not be the case with you and most importantly, 3. Aero isn't making them anymore. I've also read some complaints about this particular model on TFL so they may not be for everyone... I'll just say, if you're looking for a high quality leather trousers, try these on before buying because if they fit, you will NOT find a better pair.
