    Selling my beloved and well cared for Aero leather jacket.
    This jacket was a custom order which differentiates it from a "standard" Cafe Racer (See modifications by Aero below).
    Further, this jacket uses an extremely heavy version of Horween´s CX steer hide (4oz). Aero stopped using such heavy hides many years ago.

    Model: Cafe Racer
    Leather: Brown Super Heavy (4oz!) Chrome Tanned Steerhide (CX Steerhide by the Horween Tannery from Chicago)

    Modifications by Aero Leather:
    • Clean plain back with kidney panel (deleted Bi-swing/action back)
    • Single left-side breast outer-pocket
    • Deleted side-pockets
    • Right side vertical hidden snap inside pocket
    • Brown cotton drill lining
    Condition
    There are no rips, tears or holes in the leather. The jacket was worn and the steer hide developed a wonderful patina.

    Measurements:

    • Size: UK 42 (fits slightly larger - between 42/44)
    • Pit to Pit: 22,5" (ca. 57cm)
    • Shoulder seam to shoulder seam: 20" (50,5cm)
    • Back length 26.5"
    • Sleeve length: 26.5"
    I am asking EUR 490 (equals 410 GBP) + shipping. I am based in Germany.

    how did you determine the hide is 4+ oz? weight thickness or Aero?

    When I ordered the jacket in 2013, Aero assured me, that they would select such an extra heavy hide. In the meantime, I have handled and seen other FQHH and Steer jackets from Aero which all feel substantially lighter/thinner.
