Long time lurker, first time post-er. Having lost out on several larger Aero and LW jackets recently I took chance on this 1950s flight jacket from Aero on eBay. Unfortunately this jacket didn't fit me but having the opportunity to touch and feel an Aero jacket confirms a lot of the research I have done here. I am trying to move this jacket on and recoup my funds for a jacket that fits me. I figured I would list it here first before listing on eBay. I am open to trades for something that fits. I probably need something like a size 52 long. On to the sale:

This Aero leather jacket is the 1950s Flight Jacket model in Aero's russet jerky horsehide (as far as I can tell) with red quilted lining.

Tag size is 48 but this jacket is designed to be roomy and fits closer to a 50. See measurements in the pictures and described below:

P2P: 29"
Shoulder width: 22"
Back length: 26" (28.5" including knit)
Sleeve length from shoulder: 25.5" (28" including knit)

Jacket is in overall great used condition.
Leather is in great shape showing minimal creasing at the arms and normal scuff marks from light wear and handling. Lining is near perfect with one place where the zipper rubbed and worn the lining. Right knit cuff has a small snag and the hem knit has one as well. See pictures for condition of the jacket.
