    I get that, Carlos. Can’t argue with it.
    Metal has stood the test of time. We’ll have to see with plastic.

    Would anyone here have any info on this LVC jacket? Seller thinks it's possibly an Aero but doesn't know much else. I asked what kind of leather it was and the seller said maybe goat or cow.

    I don't know, I went back several pages and did not see this one listed here. If it were a size larger in the chest I would have purchased it.

    I was considering this one! It is the LVC "Beat Brown" jacket, but it is NOT the Aero version. This version was made in Portugal with thinner leather (possibly cowhide) not the sheepskin that Aero used. The give away is the liner- Aero used a dark red (berry)/brown cotton plaid.

    This one is the blue plaid.

    I searched for Strauss leather jacket and came up with a couple a new one for over a thousand dollars and an eBay one for 450 dollars. The latter was advertised as ‘made in Italy but differed from yours by having a two piece back.

    I bought a rare (the only?) sample of the beat brown on Aero sales page long time ago, in size "Regular" which is a 40.
    It was made of capeskin, perfect, without any distressing. The lining had effectively brown color on it, not any yellow or blue. The cost was around 540 pounds. It was a perfect fit, but a perfectly...boring leather, similar to the midweight jerky horsehide of the A2 they made at this time. Pliable, but never form fitting, the kind of leather that still looks totally new 20 years later. This and the buttons instead of a zipper made me sale it quickly, for the same price I had paid.
    Later I saw the distressed model sold by LVC, looking new but with sand papered edges, horrible.
    I forgot this model quickly, and bought later an Eastman RW A2, made of the famous warhorse, a totally different beast.

    Thanks! I was really hoping the jacket would be an old Aero but it still seems like a good deal. I usually hate factory distressing but LVC in particular always seems to do it very well. That said, the starting bid already seems pretty close to what I'm willing to put down for it haha.

    This looks to me like it could potentially be a Seattle Woolen jacket made into a vest. This is a very loose ID on my part admittedly....... but certain elements of this jacket look like the Seattle Woolens that I have. I don't know how to tag Terry......He will probably know better......SHOUT OUT TO TERRY!!!!! What do you think of this vest?? Seattle Woolen??????
