    Okey Dokey just arrived about an hour ago!! Aero's seamstress Toni did an excellent job with this tumbled black front quarter halfbelt. I asked for olive thread and antique brass with the Antique Bruce tartan wool in heavy weight and I have to say the folks at Aero did a great job. Fit is excellent with room for a sweater if it really gets cold. This should be a great truck jacket as well as an all around comfortable casual jacket for long ambling walks this winter.

    Gorgeous jacket and good fit, congratulations! Love the leather on this, had to scroll up and see what it is. It looks almost dark brown on the pictures, was surprised to read it‘s black. Will certainly age beautifully.

    Very nice and a great fit too. Above all, this really compliments you perfectly! I have always admired your vast collection of superb M/C jackets, but you wear this "4-wheel" look equally well.

    One of Aero's best styles, and one we don't see often enough.

    I like your lining.

    An all-round winner. I can picture my Dad in a similar jacket driving his truck from Sydney to Melbourne back in the lste 40s and early 50s. Both you gents wear it well. The lining is the icing on the cake Wilbur.

    Thanks Benny, There was a Henry Bruce in the family in the 1850's hence the choice of the Ancient Bruce tartan.

    Unique jacket style which I agree could be seen more. The lining is my favorite part though!

    Hi Wilbur,

    All is well now on my end since I finally recovered from a nasty bout of COVID-19 that knocked me out of commission for 3-4 months and hope you are doing well too.
