    In a fortuitous twist, DHL went ahead and just delivered my Aero today instead of tomorrow. Now that's service!

    I remember watching that movie on cable when I was little with my older sister and being scared by it. Here's the brand new Aero, cordovan HH with dark brown mouton

    Wow man!!! That is outstanding! It looks regal! Is it lined in alpaca or shearling?

    Thank you! Julie Leitch at Aero did a great job on it, definitely worth the money. It's lined in brown alpaca, I can already tell it's going to be a great cold weather jacket. My first Aero experience has definitely been positive.

    Edit: the fit is dead-on too. Holly at Aero was so knowledgeable and helpful when it came to sizing and what I wanted.

    I feel for you The last two jackets I received from the UK and one from Japan arrived in less than 48 hours. But it not like everything in the US runs like a precision clock.

    This morning I bought this womens Harro, probably 70s. Bought it from the first owner, a really nice German lady. When I told her that I collect leather jackets she looked at me like I was nuts. "But why do you want this one, it sure won't fit".

    Turns out it's a perfect fit for my girlfriend. Although she thinks it a bit heavy, she likes it a lot. Great leather and very well made. @Robbie79 I think this is the women's version of the Harro you bought last week.

    This is Harro's lighter leather, same my gf's jacket is made of. But it's not light at all, just softer and a bit more silky than regular Harro.
    Man, it's made SO well.

    I just received this Eastman A1 capeskin flight jacket. The smell of the vegetable tanned leather is intoxicating. The moment I opened the pouch it brought back memories of the many leather workshops I've visited in Florence.

    The leather is lightweight but not at all flimsy. It pickes up scratches really easily but I think that's part of the charm of the jacket.

    This is a pic af a well worn Eastman A1 @John Lever posted some time ago. I hope my jacket will look like this some day :)

    @Marc mndt Congrats. Looks really nice and I can imagine how it smells :) Condition seems to be really good. And here comes the question of all questions. How does it fit?

    You had to do this so early on this Monday! One thing I love about your posts is those pictures capturing details and that stunning leather! Never been to a workshop in Florence but just the thought of that smell makes me plan a trip as soon as it's safe.
