I am very fickle, if some one says leave it I go with that but then along comes a few positive comments and I change my mind again! Hey Don Tomasos i'm 50 too is that why this jacket appeals? I now recall I had a suede jacket from a company called The Territory Ahead, a USA company, similar to Aero's offering but without the knits and half the price. I sold it on as it was a very bright yellow suede, needed sun glasses to look at for any length of time. I will put it on hold for now as I only just took ownership of a BK russet Waldo Pepper, very nice it is too. Will keep an eye on the Aero sale page, you never know.
