    Yeah, that one was predictably going to be remorseful.

    it’s funny, I buy but never end up wearing the perfecto-types. So they get sold and the process repeats itself.

    Remember, it's not your style. You said it, not me. :D

    ^^ Perhaps, perhaps not. Don't worry, not "bipolar" or anything here. Just keep decision making based upon sound, solid evidence at the top of the mind. Well, most of the time.

    So after all that, here is a Ridley again. Decided to give this one a try. So far, I really like it!

    Vicenza Blackend Brown Horsehide. Feels perfect on this style of jacket. More photos / full review soon, for now just a few fit photos:

    Still on the fence regarding Vicenza. I can see the delicate topcoat of black over the brown, which looks quite nice at this time. I guess overall I am just more partial to heavier leathers. However this is some very nice material overall. It's problaby ~ 4.5 lbs total. That was part of the reason for trying this jacket out, to finally try a Vincenza jacket that is my size. If in a warmer climate, this would be 100% perfect leather, however I do not think it would be my choice on a motorcycle.

    Here is an in-depth series of photos of the jacket, featuring this leather. The point is to get up close with it, see the grain & detail, of "Blackened Brown" Vincenza offered by Aero presently.

    The jacket fits you well.
    I also have the Ridley in blackened brown vicenza and I think it's great. I have to honestly say that I like the Vicenza more for everyday life than the CXFQHH. And yes, there is certainly more stable leather for motorcycling. ;)

    People keep asking about Blackend Brown Vicenza, Showing the "Blacked Brown" fades.
    Seems the light shows it best...

    Looks very chocolatey brown. Any chance to get a few more shots? Looks great.
