That's such a fair and measured observation. Nice.
my answer to your question is “Yes” it’s better
Not the PC answer, but I agree.
Oh god, not this again. The we all being nice to each other answer is something along the lines of "we all value different attributes in jackets and different makers excell in different aspects of jacket making, therefore ranking them is very subjective".
That being said, I own 7 Aeros and 1 Good Wear and anyone who feels they are equally good is welcome to pm me so we can trade my Aeros for your Good Wears.
I own 7 Good Wear and 1 Arrow. We could trade, but.....
Aero is sort of mid tier amongst the makers discussed here. Excellent customer service and solid utilitarian products but the details are not quite at the same level with some of the others.
(One doesn’t need to go the 6 years route to get a top notch product either)

No, I was just genuinely curious, because oftentimes, scarcity can make things more desirable. In what way are Good Wear jackets objectively better than Aero?
Pattern, stitchwork, historic accuracy, arguably leather (the everlasting Horween vs Shinki debate) to name a few things.
You managed to rack up 7?! You are the GW whisperer! Care to share a bit of your expertise we would need it here lol
Wise men say only fools rush in...
I couldn’t get rid of the one GW jacket I had fast enough. Granted it was a second hand purchase but it fell well short of my expectations/ hopes.
Disclaimer: I have also sold all my Aeros.
@Boyo while this is a very nice jacket indeed, I personally think your Aero 30’s HB is a better fit and your LW is even better still. Most importantly, you have a nice range of options to choose from.
My GW Hercules is made of Horween Mustang horsehide, which is a wax finish, and it has a ton of natural grain. However, to my eye Boyo's new Shinki Hercules is quite beautiful, and I look forward to seeing it age.
I will say this Boyo, after reading this thread and looking at the pictures of your new Hercules I went back to GW and put down a deposit for this exact jacket!
I don’t disagree, I got lucky on those two..made for somebody else but fit me perfectly..
That might take awhile... I’m going to take this one nice and slow
Congratulations.. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.
Wonderful! I don't think you can go wrong.
In a way that that they've got Good Wear written on the label.
nah..it’s truly a palpable difference.. if you put on my Brand new Aero Dustbowl* (which is a very similar looking and fitting jacket).. and then put the GW on.. you’d agree 100%
* I love my Dustbowl, but plan to sell it as it’s just to similar to the Hercules
LOL. Hopefully not. But...........
I’m not too worried about that Ton. And as you might’ve guessed I’ve got plenty of jackets to wear in the meantime...
You certainly do. I’d be curious if any other members have heard about the goodwhereabouts of their jackets? Seems if Boyo’s ship has come in other members who have been waiting 3 or 4 years might only have a couple more to go.
