    Up for sale my Aero B-3, size 38.

    I bought this directly from the Aero Stock page (not used) in November 2017. According to the description of the item (S#3521) at the Aero Website, this was a test pattern that was laying around at the factory - that’s why the contract number is fictitious (correct me if I’m wrong, no expert on contracts).
    Really thick, warm and heavy jacket, can withstand any cold weather. I’ve realised that it is too thick and too warm for the Dutch winter.
    The trims are made of the Aero jerky horsehide.

    Measurements: Size 38, this is a really thick jacket and difficult to measure, please check photo’s on how I measured.
    P-2-P 23”
    Sleeve 22,75” (along the curve)
    Back 24,75”
    Shoulder 20,25” (straight)

    The condition is excellent; due to the much milder Dutch winters I wear this maximum 2-3 days per year. It hasn’t been worn more than 10 times in total. Almost no wear marks.
    The only “issues” I can think off: the cuff is tight; this is my only sheepskin so I don’t know how the cuffs are supposed to fit, but it takes some minor effort to put it on. The sheepskin at the cuffs and at the inside windflap near the collar is less fluffy and more worn out (check photos). When the throat is buckled up with both leather strips/buckles (as a fur collar) it also feels really tight.

    All photo’s are indoors with flash on on my mobile.
    Ships from a smoke- pet- children free home!

    I am letting the jacket go for 495euros + shipping, PayPal F&F. Item ships from the Netherlands, I will quote shipping costs and method according to destination. I cover the shipping costs for buyers within the Netherlands.

    For UK buyers: it seems that even for goods declared as gifts there is a limit of 39 pounds; above that there is a 20% import VAT (probably calculated on value + shipping) plus a handling fee. I will not be responsible for any custom charges (either to the UK or elsewhere).

    No returns please - therefore feel free to ask me as many questions as needed.
    If more photos (or even videos) are needed please feel free to contact me.
    Preference goes to long standing members here.
    Thanks for looking!

    Some fit pics asked from a member. For comparison: the brown 30's HB (Aero, FQHH, size 38) has a 48cm straight shoulder measurement and a 62cm sleeve along the curve.

    Great jacket. I have a bigger size, same exact leather specs and everything. I spent a couple hundred dollars tailoring mine down because I wanted a slimmer fit. This one would have fit me almost perfect. I think the shoulders are supposed to come off the usual line with this style.

    I'll also say and it may be surprising to many is this B3 is probably my most worn jacket in Los Angeles. Yes you read that correctly. Now let me qualify. It's my go to jacket from late Oct to Apr for the nightly dog walk. It's a perfect jacket for a 20-30 minute burst when you don't want to layer a bunch of clothes and just grab a jacket and go. I'd probably pass out if I wore it any longer though LOL.

    Very comfy and comfortable, especially if you just have a tshirt on underneath. Highly recommended. I liked the look and feel so much, I actually just bought an Aero C3 vest so that way I can keep wearing something warm at night into the Spring and early summer.
