    Just tried the DHL pricing tool, the cheapest quote was 100€. I must be doing something wrong, it would be cheaper to fly there myself :p

    Strange. I just checked from the Netherlands to Spain with DHL. 2-5 kg is €12

    Maybe it's a quote for a faster service? I have tried a comparing site and prices are around 15 but when I go to the source they shoot to the sky. I will try going to dhl in person, see what's going on.

    Great, Please tell me when it comes. Btw, I think their CR, might be, a bit roomier than their HB at the same size, is that true?

    I'll definitely be posting pics when I get it.

    Sorry, I've never tried their CR.

    Turns out I was getting prices for DHL express, DHL parcel is what I should have been looking at.

    I also discovered that if you bought a product with PayPal, they will cover return postage, including international, up to 30€. Change the "es" in the link to your country code for the specific conditions
    https://www.paypal.com/es/webapps/mpp/refunded-returns
    example "es" to "nl"

    Regardless of any of this shipping from Spain is EXPENSIVE , very very expensive compared to what other countries pay using the same couriers across Europe.

    I use Packlink usually and try to find the best rate but most of the time it is very high. It's not strange to see +20€ using Correos or Correos Express, Seur and with DHL that is more like 35-40€ if you ship to the UK or Europe.

    I shipped a package to a friend in Australia recently and I had to pay close to 100€ insured up to around 150-200€ (IIRC)

    Correos quoted me 32€ to send a shoebox to germany. DHL was slightly better at 25€ but they have a 30% off discount that brought it down to 18€. The national post being more expensive than a private carrier is peak Spain.

    I'm thinking of doing a remake on an Aero U.S. Navy jacket, this time in Dark Seal Vincenza, but I'm not sure if I should keep the mouton collar dark brown as standard, or do a contrast collar in rust, natural, or even Irvin...what do you guys think?

    +1 Irvin.
    Natural and dark brown look like they could be on a fashion jacket. Rust makes me think of Carrot Top.

    I think it really depends on your skin tone and your hair colour.
    Neither choice is "wrong", but some will work better with certein complexions/hair.

    I love rust against olive like on the Superior Togs B10, but I think against dark brown I would go with natural.

    I agree with Carlos, a jacket that goes well with you is better than one that looks good unworn.

    They do sell used jackets on their website:

    https://www.aeroleatherclothing.com/products.php?cat=salerv&sub=refurb

    But I have a feeling you'd get more for your jacket elsewhere.

    I once saw an Aero jacket with minor damage to the knits listed somewhere on eBay for something like £120. Later I saw that exact same jacket listed on Aero's website for £450. Therefore I guess they buy low, sell high :)

    This is also the case here, I’ve seen jackets in the classifieds then the same jacket later on Aero’s site for more.

    Yeah. Probably, but it's too much hassle for me to deal with all that stuff, so if they give me a "fair" deal in exchange it would be much easier for me to deal with ( I'm a lazy bastard :D )
