    I’m sure it will come down!

    And YES, @TheOldFashioned I must have made a massive mistake in “butchering” mine. :p

    It’s the same pattern, but this version is the “Rough and Ready”...note the fake repairs on the shoulder, chest zip, and handwarmer pocket.

    Thank you. I see the distressed parts now. The jacket would have been great even without the added accelerated wear. Still interested in it though especially if it was a little cheaper

    I got my cheap on ebay and sold it there for cheap. Not sure why, it was a great fitting jacket. The distressing I assume is an issue for folks. I did like it. Made for Levi by Aero Leather of Scotland. Not sure what year.

    Thank you for the info. It's listed 500+, hope I can get it at a lower price.

    I think that alone gives it some Value. Quite a Feather in their Cap to build jackets for Levi. Ken told me Levi made some of their jackets in house and others were made in the Bay Area of California. Good company to be in line with. Aero has done some very interesting jackets, Ken has a keen understanding of the original Levi jackets. I would assume he has used an original in his re-creation. It fit and felt like a vintage jacket.

    Even the cosmetic work is well done.

    I know he used a jacket like this to Create the Aero Speedway. He identified my jacket as a Levi jacket. It has no label. Ken identified the construction details.

    Sportclady Kurland Jacket. I love this design. Been looking for one in my size for some time. Another close but no cigar. Beautiful details not seen on other vintage jackets.

    Thanks for the great info again. Yep I'm definitely liking the look of the jacket that you had.

    I sent a message to the seller and hope to get a deal done.

    "Sportclady" I like that! Yes, it does have the look even down to the Red Wool lining, late 40s.
