After getting my red/black plaid HB back from Dena, I immediately ammended my Aero order. Now green/back with dark green Kelpie, Denny and Ken are on board with the tweaks. Mine will have leather standard HWM cuff with storms:

I'm partying with you next St. Patrick's day. I'll bring the corned beef and green beer.

Happy with this. Needed a brown leather jacket, didn’t want to spend a fortune and this came up on the trainee section with the right sleeves and back length. Aero HWM in tumbled brown CXLHH.

Forgot how heavy leather felt, glad I sized up one from my previous HWM. I think this is the heaviest CXL HH I’ve handled. I got to the conclusion that the “size down 2 on HWM” advice is just as misleading as an advice can be. Maybe if you are in between sizes take the smallest but that’s it. Don’t look at the p2p, it’s got very low armholes. No weird vertical creases so far.

That's the idea fit for HWM, how is the back look? In my experience if front looks good the back usually looks too big.

Thanks and yes I get what you mean. There is some excess material at the pits probably more visible from the back. It’s the low set armholes combined with the Aero sleeve rotation. My uneducated guess is that it’s a combination of an intentional pattern thing (Boxy 50s cut which I like) and a particular choice of sleeve rotation (I’m not a fan personally).

The back panel is also pretty stiff and not broken in which isn’t helping with the drape.

So here is how it looks on me…

Arrived today!

Alittle TLC since its arrival this week and this vintage 40's Wolf HH H-B definitely appreciated the attention. :)

Love the vintage details- original buttons, talon, label, hardware and all.... beautiful HH.

Still just WOWED by this one. TOP SHELF!

Not necessarily a fan of the HWM (for myself), but this is the one I would wear.
Looks great.
