    Let’s see them worn!
    They’re both pretty sweet.
    I love the darker olive color on the LW.

    The Maxwell - it'd be better in the darker olive colour seen on the LW's stripes.

    I like the LW better. The Vicenca olive is too light colored for my taste and I don't like the narrow shoulders on the 30s hb models.

    IMO green is reserved for edible things, hunters, maybe cars if it is British racing green, but that's it...

    I agree that Aero’s Olive would be so much better if it were darker/ more saturated like that LW. Thedi has a great olive deerskin:

    Role Club’s olive Horween steerhide would also be awesome:

    This is a great colour. The Thedi olive is outstanding.

    Not a fan of either but the Aero looks much nicer. That LW looks like an afterthought.

    I would definitely dig those stripes while I ate biscotti, blogging in the mall. :)
    On the other hand, the olive on the Aero is really pale.

    I want to see the LW Strada worn - may look super cool. I like this 70s style. The olive used by Aero looks too pale IMO even if I really like the Maxwell design...as said by @handymike if Aero would select the green deerskin Thedi offers, the Maxwell would look perfect in my eyes.

    IMO the LW look is too busy for my tastes, although I would prefer the Aero a darker shade of olive. Much darker. However I do like the Aero's simple, understated look but chose my black goatskin Maxwell without chest pocket (s).

    @William Pepe was the LW on sale for a bit on ebay? i recall a size 48 strada a few months back..
    A jacket always looks better being worn.. I would like to see fit pics of both.. I lean towards the Maxwell tho..would that darken in the sun/with wear?

    Can I pick the Thedi? Seriously though, the Maxwell looks cream on my screen so I don't think that's doing the jacket much justice. Personally I'm not into stripes on jackets so I ended up voting for the Maxwell.

    Though choice but the colour of the Maxwell is really one that wouldn’t work for me so I have to say the LW.

    Olive/military green is a colour I like a lot but imho it works better on textiles.

    I like the Maxwell a lot but yes, can see its not the most easy to wear colour.

    The stripes on the other just look a bit wrong. I don't mind jackets with stripes, but the placement there looks off to me, maybe looks better when worn.
