    For sale is an Aero Highwayman in black Connolly Steerhide, size 46. Ken Calder at Aero wrote that based on the label and the lining, the jacket was probably built in 1987. The jacket is in amazing condition, particularly considering it is over 30 years old! The only flaws I can see are extra rows of stitching on the inside facings (zipper replacement, perhaps?) and some minor wear to the jacket’s lining at the bottom (see last two photos). This jacket has a ton of life left in it!

    Specs: thick, grainy steerhide from Connolly Leather Limited. Warm, charcoal and white plaid cotton lining. One exterior left breast pocket. Nickel hardware. Both of the zippers work extremely well. I recently conditioned the leather with Connolly’s Hide Care.

    Measurements:

    Pit-to-Pit: 24”
    Shoulders: 20”
    Back Length: 25.75”
    Sleeve Length: 24.25” (I realize this seems short upon measurement, but most of my jackets have a 25.5”+ sleeve length, and the sleeves on this jacket never seemed too short for me).

    Note: although the jacket is tagged a size 46, I would say it fits closer to a true size 44.

    Asking $550 shipped.

    I have a similar jacket, made from the same hide. These really are a cut above.
    Whoever buys this will no doubt be very happy.
    Good luck with the sale.

    If that jacket were in my size I'd have already paid for it. Btw, Connolly leather gets a mention in the brand new Hiroki Murakami novel, Killing Commendatorre. One of the characters is discussing the old Jaguars, and says that the new ones just don't measure up to the old: they lack that smell of Connolly leather.

    Practically a gift at this point. HWM in Connolly is as true as it gets.

    Can you give a measurement for the opening at the hem and about where the belly would be.
    Thanks.

    Hi Mark,

    It’s approximately 21” at the hem and 22” at the belly. Hope this helps. Thanks!
