Hi all, I purchased this jacket extremely cheap from a garage sale. The seller says he does not have any information regarding the jacket, as he only used it once for a photo shoot and then was stored for a long time (note the horizontal crease, which I suspect came from folding, which I don't mind). It has no tags and appears to have a replacement lining, but for the life of me really looks to me like an Aero half-belt. I can't identify the leather either, very thick and heavy (my Aero Highwayman is 2.6kg, this jacket weighs 2.2kg), but has a different hand than horsehide. More waxy and stiff, with lots of color gradiation. I suspect its either calf or steer. It didn't seem to have much wrinkling in the joints when I brought it, so I suspect it wasn't worn much. I wore it for half a day, and the arms are already starting to lose stiffness. Hardware uses vintage brass Talon zippers for main and chest pocket. Construction seems solid, similar to Aero jackets I have. aluminium molecular formula The question is, what is this thing? Is it possible that some enterprising leatherworker reproduced a half-belt somehow, or is this a real Aero? Any thoughts? Thanks!
