    They are very different leathers: The FQHH is a thicker, stiffer, more weather resistant & restrictive fitting jacket that will take years to gain the flexibility (if it ever can) of Vicenza. The Vicenza is sublime - I'm sorely tempted to order a PHWM in black Vicenza as I love the hide so much. It really depends on where you live and how you plan on using the jacket. If you're riding a bike, the FQHH is far more robust and protective. If this is just for causal wearing, I'd say get the Vicenza. Definitely get the cotton sateen liner in the sleeves and lightweight Lochcarron wool liner if you do opt for Vicenza, it's an erotic combination... ;)

    Hi, happy customers of Aero, I myself have been a customer for many many items. However, when it comes to taking notes and measurements, have you experienced dissatisfactions? I got this custom 50s flight jacket, and I noted I need the body length to be 24" no less, but the front zipper of my jacket is 20", full back length is 24". Why didn't they increase the front accordingly?

    How long did it take in the queue for you to receive this beauty?

    I thought I'd resurrect this thread to post some pictures of the jacket 3 years in...
    @Witchtrip sold his jacket, and I recently picked it up from the buyer.
    I couldn't be happier with the jacket!

    After a tour around the world, I believe this Highwayman has found it's forever home here in Southern California!

    I haven't seen a better fit in a Highwayman than that. Love the collar too.

    Thanks guys! It is really a great jacket. I know @Witchtrip was unhappy with the finish on this batch of CXL, but I love the dull matte finish, and the brown coming through.
    The sleeves fit just like my Seven, and the length is perfect with the front dipping a bit.

    I’m very patient :).
    This one has all the mods I would do...plus the brass has mellowed a bit with age.
