    Nice jacket and worth the $. It's brand new out of the box. You gotta give it some time. If you give it more wear, it will shape to you. The arms and shoulders are just right. Give it a chance.

    Agreed, I think it fits you well already and can only get better.

    Oh, I will. I'm going to keep wearing it until the weather gets too warm for it. But I don't think the back will loosen up with wear. It might scrunch up a bit and sit higher, I suppose.

    I been looking at the hooch hauler and came across your thread. I fell you have nailed the fit hard to do much better. Perhaps the back would flare out better below the waist if you let the waist straps out a tab? Looking good

    Thanks - actually, you're right. Loosening the adjuster tabs renders it almost perfect. Half an inch shorter in the back and it would fit exactly right. Love the jacket, but it's been much too warm to wear it for months now.

    if you wear your jacket mostly half zipped a little waist in and flare on the hip would look nice and give trim look, however if you mostly wear it unzipped, a little flare on the side seam would look exaggerated, if I would have another leather jacket I would choose to have straighter side seam and have the hip room shared by side panel and back panel only.

    Hi, new to the forum but have been browsing threads for a while. I’ve just ordered the 44” hooch natura cxl that was on the sale page. Should have it here on Wednesday! So excited for this.

    Hello Nick - Welcome to the FL!! Congratulations on your new Aero! You'll love it, and I have found that it's very hard to determine the color accuratly based off thier online photos. I'm with you, I prefer darker Cordovans & browns to lighter. We'll be excited to see photos of it when it arrives...

    Thanks a lot pal. Yes so excited to get this beast although it’ll be way too hot here in the UK to wear for a while, but I’ll still try a little. I’ll post up some pictures when she gets here. I’m not quite sure how to do a post though lol

    That's even a bit easier. Just first set you camera to a low Megapixal setting, I have one set to 2.5MP for all online photos. Then when you have these uploaded, hit "reply" to this thread and Upload a file - browse to it on your PC, select and hit full size or thumbnail. I think the limit per post is 10 if I'm not mistaken. Heck, even I can do it - so can you! :)

    Man that natural hooch has been on the sale page for quite some time. I was sorely tempted many times over myself. Great pick up and a really cool jacket for sure. Look forward to some fit pics.

    Congrats, @Nick Noon ! I got CXL Hooch Hauler about a month ago and have loved all the (scant) opportunities to wear it so far. Don't know anything about how natural CXL might darken, but I hope you're happy with it!

    Looks superb-The wait for the brown box can become addictive.

    I think you will be pleased with the development of this leather. I have some boots made with natural CXL and they have darkened into a rich bronzed brown color.

    Ok thank you my friend. To me this jacket doesn’t seem like pure natural because it is already darkened so I’m wondering is it actual natural or just a lighter brown, we will see
