Well, my dream jacket just isn't quite the right fit for me, so I'm putting my Aero Premiere Highwayman up for sale as a catch & release. I've worn it only a few times, it's always been stored on a wide hangar, and it's never seen smoke or water. Regarding the Dark Maple Bainbridge, it really is an exquisite leather with amazing character and detail. I was initially concerned it might be a touch too shiny, but it really isn't when you actually see it. I've tried to photograph it as accurately as possible here, but I'd still say it's less shiny then the pictures show. When I order another custom jacket it's the leather I'd choose. Details: Premiere Highwayman size 44 (custom ordered from Thurston Bros 2020) Brass Hardware Custom Tartan upgrade Interior Pocket option upgrade Custom Straight Yoke across back All in all, I was out over $1400 on this jacket that's still practically brand new. It's absolutely lovely, just not the fit for me unfortunately. I'd like to get $950 for it. I'm a university professor and man of my word -- feel free to reach out if you have any questions. Happy to speak by FaceTime or Skype if you'd like to see a closer look.
