    With the exchange rate I couldn't pass it up, basically $830 for a new 1930's HB in FQHHCX Cordovan. I have to send in measurements I guess but other than that it's just a waiting game now.

    It's such a great jacket, versatile, easy to wear almost anywhere, but still very stylish and unique. Definately my favorite pattern and a simple choice as a go to jacket. Congrats!!

    The jacket came in today, shipped quickly from Scotland, had to pay $60 duty but what are you gonna do?

    Overall the cut is much different than my AL Roadster (Highwayman Knockoff), but I think they about nailed the fit. It's slightly tight in the shoulders and upper back but I attribute that more to it being new and the cut (not to mention due to injury I haven't been running and I'm ~8 lbs heavier than normal). The AL Roadster was similar until it broke in too. Sorry for the poor pics, it's the best I can do for now. I couldn't get a good shot of the back (the best part) but I'll add one later.

    The color and leather are just awesome (my pics do not do it justice with the poor lighting) and a good contrast to the AL Roadster. I'm very impressed with the quality of this jacket. I put an extra inch on the back making it 25 inches instead of 24 and I'm definitely glad I did. It almost looks too nice for me.

    Looks great man, congratulations. I'm sure that you'll enjoy it. It's a rather all-year long jacket. Today that was a bit colder I wore mine layered with a shackleton waistcoat - it kept the cold away.

    One of Aero's finest, indeed. And yours just proves it. I've had the exact same one as well, a size too large but that jacket is so damn nice and well tailored that even you couldn't tell. I've felt the same, that it was too nice for me. Cordo CXL is out of this world. After handling it in person, for me it's really the only choice when it comes to Aero.

    This jacket fits you perfectly!

    Good choice, nice fit! I know it's only personal preference but I'd be itching to wet and shape that collar :)

    Awesome! The HB is such a versatile jacket, easy to wear and still looks super bad ass but not too edgy.
