I’m not sure whether this sort of post is considered legitimate, but I just wanted to say that I popped into the Aero Leather factory in Galashiels today, and was completely blown away by the hospitality I was shown while there. I had a fairly lengthy chat about what sort of jacket I was looking for (Vicenza cordovan highwayman), I was shown some options, tried a couple of jackets on, was then invited to go downstairs to be shown the various types of hide available, and then on to a tour of the factory floor. While I was there my new Aviation Leathercraft B-3 was also given a close inspection and the seal of approval...! I’ve no idea whether this treatment is par for the course, but it was very welcome. All in all an incredibly positive experience with some very hospitable people. It makes the idea of parting with a fair chunk of cash for one of their jackets much more palatable. I left very impressed.
