    Curious to know if anyone has experience with Aero Mouton and how color stable the fur is. Specifically in harsh sun / UV. Thinking about attempting a sun tan/vintage look on two of Aeros collars and just want to confirm the possible outcome. Black mouton and Rust.

    It will age and patina. I’ve never done it from new but did have some black collars on old m/c jackets that went tan at the edges of the mouton. I think it takes quite a bit of time.

    Historically, the mouton changed colour on the originals - hardly surprising for those in the Pacific Theatre of Operations and the intensely high UV!
    I would expect the Aero mouton collar to change colour too - but just think of it as part of the ageing process along with the leather. Don't sweat it.

    Think graying silver tipped black bear and blonding grizzly bear.
