    AUD $950 Delivered, tracked and insured to your door, world wide.

    This translates to approximately USD $740 or GBP 560 - INCLUDING International shipping, tracking and Insurance!!!!

    This was my first custom order from Aero & is still one of my favorite jackets.

    The full thread of when it was brand new is here;
    http://www.thefedoralounge.com/threads/new-acquisition-my-first-aero-custom-order.81974/

    The problem for me is that it fits perfectly everywhere, other than through the torso (read; abdomen). I can only comfortably wear this open. Ah experience, if I only ordered the exact jacket with an addition inch in the side panels to begin with.

    It's approximately two years old, which in Australian terms, means about 3 months of a Northern Hemisphere equivalent ;)
    As you can see from the pics, it is starting to break in beautifully with some nice grain starting to pop. It still can do the whole "look at me, I can stand by myself" thing when cold, but becomes quite soft and pliable when worn for only a short time.

    Put together by Julie, the workmanship is superlative.

    The specs are a standard sized 42 with a touch more length.
    My measurements of the jacket are approximately;
    Pit to pit; 23"
    Shoulders; 19.25"
    Length; 25.75"
    Arms; 26.5"
    Brown FQHH
    Antique Brass Talon Hardware
    Minto Check Tartan
    Olive Drab stitching

    Price is in Australian Dollars (AUD) and INCLUDES World wide shipping.

    If you have any questions, let me know.

    And the brown FQHH Ton, a nice casual tone to compliment the black jackets you have.....

    I don't have a brown jacket. Problem tho isn't blacks or browns. It's green! I might have to fire up the hock machine. This is a nice jacket. A toned down version of that Logan jacket I just posted and have been lusting after. Brain is hurting right now.

    How many of us have been in that exact position before!!!

    Great looking jacket Dan, what a shame it's not quite right for you....a touch big for me and I have a Sheene on order as we speak anyway.

    Good luck on the sale.

    Thanks Protein.
    I even asked Aero if they could retro fit new side panels with +1". Denny's reply was to sell & start again.
    At this price less international postage, I'll loose 50% of what it cost me. Add the costs of a new jacket & that's a heck of a lot to pay for 2" of leather!
    Ah the price of experience.

    That's the other option Dan, just wear it unzipped.

    I'm pretty sure Hugh couldn't zip this if his life depended on it and it still looks awesome.

    I agree though almost $1000 for 2 inches of leather....ouch! But then again, look at me, I'm doing exactly the same thing with my Steer Board Racer but I CAN zip it up lol. Maybe I should take my own advice and save myself $$$ [emoji13]

    Been doing that for the last 2 years...
    Could still get away with it which is why I'm really on the fence about selling.

    Putting this fantastic jacket back out there, after deciding to keep it :D
    It's for sale and hasn't been worn since these photo's were taken.
    A perfect Sheene, made by Julie in Aero's wonderful brown FQHH. Just starting to shape nicely after a little wear.
    Let me know if you have any questions.
    Price includes World-wide shipping, tracking and insurance.
