    Signed and seconded. Awesome fit and the jacket I won't even comment on... I was thinking about buying it when it was first released and I hadn't the money so no point in whining in every post how much I like it. But yeah, everything seems spot on. It's gonna look awesome, man.

    I don't understand why those Schott premium lines have such an improvement in fit over the regular stuff... Good pattern doesn't cost more money.

    Is the D-pocket sewn onto the leather front, or is there a hole under it?

    The D-pocket is sewn onto the body. There's no hole in the body. The pocket is unlined.

    So far just walking between my desk at work and my car, I've gotten compliments on the jacket from three different people, complete strangers. I guess I'm going to have to get used to it.

    Here's another really nice photo I found on the internet showing how beautifully it can age.

    I've had the sample sent from Aero sitting in the window since it arrived. I coated it with oil on this side. It's burnishing at the edges. Lovely stuff. I hope they restock this hide.

    Mine doesn't look this good yet, but I will say it has darkened from the photos I originally posted.

    Here's a quick update. As you can see, it's darkened, but with less burnishing and not as ruddy undertones of that other one. I think it need more UV and wear. [​IMG]

    I think it’s looking great. Very even change. I’ll bet more time will make it deeper.

    I can't answer for Ton, but if you look at top of the thread you will see photos from the auction on my jacket, from when it was listed. I think my jacket has darkened noticeably since those were taken. Although, it could be differences i in lighting, camera, and settings distort the actual change.

    My recent photos look more vibrant and saturated than real life. In person it's a duller, more boring brown, not as warm and orangeish in tone as the photos make it look. Still a very lovely leather, though, to be sure.
