    The other guys were French speaking so I'm guessing from France.
    I stood next to them in the queue before doors opened. Bagged a nice Shackleton waistcoat and RAF wool sweater. Had a great morning

    I received the Teamster I ordered from the sale yesterday.. the jacket looks and fits great..I will get a picture up soon..
    I added two hangers to my order but only received one.. I think who ever opened my package in customs made off with the other one..that Rat.

    I also ordered yesterday but my order still has not left the factory, nor my credit card is charged...
    I would contact aero regarding the hanger, maybe they missed one by mistake?

    that is surely possible, especially with the volume of sales and packaging that must have occurred. Both the packing slip and the invoice say 2 it would be difficult to prove otherwise...


    I can imagine the guy in customs hanging his uniform back in his locker on my Aero Hanger..

    Indeed that sucks, if the invoice says 2 hangers... is this hanger worth the hype?

    It appears to be a well made wooden hanger.. although i feel it could be longer as my jackets are all 48 and have wide shoulders. the wood ends are probably 2-3 inches short of the shoulder seam on the jacket I used it on ( a GW A-2)

    Aero should suggest a hanger with every jacket purchase - I've just got my first Aero hanger, but its probably a couple of years too late as my jacket has that dreaded fold / crease from hanging on a regular coat hanger. I did not know this was a thing until it was too late.

    I tend to keep my seriously heavy ones on the Aero hangers or packed away. Lighter ones seem to be fine with a more standard hanger - I think the bigger you are, the worse the creasing can be. Mind you, I'm currently sitting in the office and my A2 is draped over a file box.

    I was talking about my A2, which is light-weight.......

    I’m fond of the ones at Kirby Allison’s Hanger Project because you can order the right size for your jacket. Not cheap but very well made

    Still not been cold enough to start breaking in my Mariner, so I thought I'd be safe browsing the sale page. Nope - A Late War Irvin arrived this afternoon...

    I love Kirby’s YouTube vids, though he cannot interview for toffee.

    You have no idea how jealous I am that you are able to wear a leather of any sort in August.... another tick in the 'Scotland as retirement venue' column. ;)

    Had the Wayfarer on today. Weather is definitely beginning to turn a bit - torrential rain for two days and cooler.

    Figured I’d put this here rather than start a new thread. A page or so back I mentioned missing out on an Orginal Hercules in cordovan CXL. Well, Denny DMd me and said that there was a second jacket with the same specs that didn’t make it on the page and that if interested he would honor the sale price. I jumped at the chance. Here are some photos—very happy with the fit, come on fall weather so I can break this in! Many thanks to Denny for reaching out and making this happen!
