    I’ve got a tough choice on my hands. I have a Teamster in FQHH that’s become too big for me. It was always too big in the shoulders, and I’ve lost a pile of weight, so I should probably pass it on. It’s labeled size 52, and when I ordered it, I was probably carrying about 300 lbs, at 6’5” tall. I can’t send it back to Aero, as they got a little salty during the period after I received it and asked about the poor fit. This was during the “cow sold as horse” replacement issues, and this jacket was made as a replacement for one of those. Understandably, the folks there were a little frazzled, and offered to fully refund my money, but declined to make a new jacket or fix the replacement. I kept it, hoping the fit issues would resolve with wear. They didn’t, but the jacket is so beautiful I still haven’t had the heart to send it on. If there’s any real interest, not just folks who want to see what it looks like, I’ll see if I can put some photos up. There’s a thread about this jacket somewhere here on TFL. Let me know if you’re interested in a big, heavy, no-issues, no-smoking jacket that has developed some excellent creasing with pretty low wear hours. Thanks, Frank. (frussell on forum)

    Found some photos in an old Aero thread from 2013. Jacket was new, much more character now, but still some stiffness left, never water treated or anything like that. Low miles.

    Got off my butt, braved the triple digit backyard heat for some poor photos showing the character this Aero has developed.

    Pit to pit 26.5”
    Sleeve, from shoulder seam to end, following curve 29”
    Shoulders from tip seam at back 22”
    Back from bottom of collar to end 32”

    No damage or issues I can see, no funky smells.

    Bump this, I definitely need to sell this beauty. Lost over 60 lbs, won’t ever fill this one out right again. Somebody will get a well-cared for, but broken in jacket for about 1/2 the price of a new one. I can’t be the only big guy on the FL who like Aero jackets.

    Sorry old pal, didn’t see your response. It’s a lightweight plaid. Thanks, Frank.

    PM me for your price, since we’ve done some horse trading before.
