I’m all but certain that’s real. I have a suede Aero trucker a lot like that one except it’s lined and the color is much darker. I reached out to Aero directly with pictures when I was thinking about buying and they assured me it’s real. That label was apparently on a lot of their “jean” products which included leather pants and leather jean jackets in the early to mid 90’s. I may be wrong about this particular one though.

Edit: Taking another look it appears there’s some text on the inside under the right pocket. That’s definitely unexpected and kinda suspicious.

ask him to check in the inside pocket. Many of them have the size written in pencil on the white canvas material. That'll give you a bench mark, but in any case, you want the photos of measurements anyway. PTP is deceiving on these jackets. Have them take a measurement a couple inches down too. I'd say generally speaking Cals run small. you probably have to go up at least 1 size from your "normal" true to size measurement. But like many here, I've gone through like 10+ still trying to find the perfect one that fits well in chest, waist, hips, and length.
Perfect fit if I cut out bread, sweets, and meat and potatoes for a week, lol.

This is cool. Smaller size......... I can't tell but it LOOKS like it could be Rough Out and not suede???????? Pretty good condition for this kind of vintage jacket. Looks like a 40......... Interested to see what this goes for. I'd be interested if I could fit into it.

I wouldn't pay more than a $100 for that jacket. That suede is delicate, very. They usually rip at the seams and specially the side cinchs. Also the collar is damaged.

This is not mine, but it is my size probably. More than I'm going to spend as I have a custom Just Leather that is almost identical and has vents front and back.
