    As an owner of a Hillside USA full custom jacket, along with numerous Aero, Vanon, Langlitz, Cal Leather, and a Lost Worlds, I'd say I'd have to see this particular Hillside in person before I judged it.

    Recent Hillside jackets have turned up with leather of a cheaper quality than what they were using a few years ago, and my custom Hillside jacket, made in 2014, was made with some very nice naked cowhided, but I wouldn't say that in general an off the rack Hillside is quite up to the level of Aero or Vanson, but they are very nice.

    And this one does look nice, every bit as good as my own custom Hillside jacket. $800 is a good bit more than one of Hillside's standard pricing, which tops out around $550 for their D-pocket jackets in HH. I paid $550 USD in 2014 for mine, which was essentially a hybrid of their standard and full-belted motorcycle jackets, with a 3rd inside pocket. But as this is a one-off J24 replica and NOT one of their standard patterns that they could have modified easily, it might well be that they would have charged $800, and used materials that measure up with Aero, Vanson, etc.

    I'd definitely be interested in this one if it were my size, but thankfully for my bank account, it's not.

    Good luck with the sale.

    If I may ask. How large are you? Jacket looks really big on you.
    Interesting thread.

    I'm a medium tall, it was originally bought for my pop but it doesn't fit him. I tried it on but doesn't fit me either:(

    Sure, 6 2 and 170 lbs. The shoulder measurement is 21.5. Such a beautiful jacket! solid and heavy like you're wearing armor.

    I think spell check is at work changing "arm" to "aim".....The sleeve length is stated as 27" in the opening post
