    Well, I noticed there are plenty details which help to establish a period, e.g: the stitching drawing, the belt area thickness, zippers (of course!), lappels shape, the point where collar snaps are placed, the maker label (if it still exists), the kind of leather, even the epaulettes shape.

    I don't know if there are differences in Langlitz, Vanson, Aero or Schott on jackets from different periods. Do their patterns have changed over the years?

    Thank you. Yes, subtle and less subtle differences like you describe. Definitely the leather changes. Patterns change or are tweaked.

    Is the new leather on the Cal as thick and heavy? Any other differences in leather, other than the fact that it seems that nowadays Cal uses more cow.

    Thanks for the time. I really like Cals.

    Schott have changed a little over the years. The basic jackets look very similar now, but minor details have changed - cow now vastly more common than horse; logo'ed studs on the jackets (originally plain), sometime around the late eighties / early 90s, the 118 in addition to being naked cowhide (c/f the 618's chrome 'steer') was upsized, so a 44 118 is now the same as a 46 618, a 46 an 48, and so on.

    Can't directly comment on Langlitz or Vanson, but I imagine there have been changes over the years. Aero have had very few changes to individual models; given that they have always been focussed on creating jackets with a "pre-1959" design mindset, they don't change with fashion in the same was a contemporary-focussed brand will. I do know, however, that Ken did a lot of work post 2012 on their military patterns; the A2s are now extremely accurate for the contract models, and the Irvins are spot on, not blighted by the very tubular, slim sleeves they had for some years.

    Is that patina natural? Looks fake. Pretty cool though.

    It’s from a # IG account focused on old, heavily worn jackets. All of the other posted stuff I have seen looks legit. No idea on this one. Thought it looked cool though.

    I hope that it is not against the rules to post pictures of an item that I have posted also in the for sale section?

    Not a jacket but a western shirt... in natural. I grabbed this from a raw denim group on facebook. This is made by Sugarcane X Indian Motorcycles. I wonder if Aero would do theirs in natural, someone order one and find out!

    well I suppose that that is the only button which is not a press button and had to be different , it may be replaced by a button with mother of pearl and metal frame, with a bit of patience you may be able to find one. ( something like this cufflink)[​IMG]

    Beautiful! Sleeves are a bit too wide, though but otherwise super nice.

    Aero will do a leather shirt in natural Vic or any other hide that's not overly heavy so CXL is off.
