Selling both of these jackets due to fit issues. I have weightlifted myself out of the Himel now unfortunately as I did with my RMC A2 and I simply am not happy with the fit on the Aero. The Aero has only been worn to take pictures and still has the tag on it. It is essentially brand new. The Himel is in used, but very good condition. The liner is the only part that is showing wear, but is still pretty good.

Himel sells for $2800 new, asking $1500 shipped CONUS
Aero cost me around $1200, asking $900 shipped CONUS

I have more pictures of both if wanted and feel free to ask any questions if you are interested in them :)

Measurements:

Himel Grizzly:
Chest: 21.5”
Shoulder: 18”
Arms: 24”
Length: 24.5”

Aero A1:
Chest: 22.25”
Shoulder: 18”
Arms: 22” without cuff, 24.5” with cuff
Length: 21” without rib, 24” with rib

Y'know what Dude, I agree about the Aero. Those other two that you recently bought just fit you so much better. No point in keeping something that doesn't, regardless if it's in a completely different style. Beautiful, nonetheless.

Fantastic prices on essentially brand new jackets. Good luck with the sale.

Thanks for saying that. It is good to know that I am not the only person thinking this. It is indeed a wonderful jacket anyway. I am sure someone who gets it will be happy with it.

That grizzly would fit me not sure I could pull off that look though & would never hear the end of it from my wife if that arrived in the post

I just didn't want to say nothing in the other thread - you seemed happy, everyone else too, I've no clue how these are supposed to fit but I just thought that it didn't even touch Mulholland fit-wise. Different styles, I know, but sometimes a leather jacket fits so well the other styles in fact do turn out to be a downgrade.

This isn't to say that this is an inferior jacket or that it didn't fit you well, just wasn't meant for you I suppose. Otherwise, this is the only military style that I like and had I enough $, I would've given this very jacket a go.

Yeah, I too thought that the Aero wasn’t a good fit at all but you seemed happy with it and everyone else said the fit was good so I assumed I was the odd one out. You’re doing the right thing moving the Aero, worst fit I’ve seen on any of your jackets by far.

Yeah I understand that. Though I did come to my senses pretty quickly, fortunately. You are right about the Mulholland. No jacket fits me that well. Indeed, the Aero is a fantastic jacket. The only issue is the fit on me. It will make someone else very happy.

I was happy with it overall, but I soon realized that I did not like how I looked in it. It felt good, but it did not look good on me. Everything else about it was great though. Glad to hear from more people that agree with my current position that the fit did not work.

+1

Didn't want to ruin your new jacket day, but i thought the same thing, IMO its really not the right shape for you.
Its all wrong in the shoulders and too wide in the waist because of the bottom knit, it really made you look like an upside down U.

Glad to hear this from you, too. I completely agree that it just is not the correct shape for me at all. It should work very well for some other people, but it just isn't right for me. It's not as if Aero really messed anything up either, it's just not meant for me at the end of the day.
