    I'm trying to get an idea of the weight of the 1920s work coat, if any of you have one, do you might sharing some information? The measurements, leather type, lining, and the weight.

    What do you like and don't like about it? I don't see a lot of fit pics on that model, and it seems to be quite "boxy" from the pictures (might be just picture angle though). Some fit pics would be really appreciated.

    I'd like to get one as my next go-to utility jacket, want to have a good fit but still comfortable, leather that ages well, and not too heavy.

    Thanks for sharing.

    I notice that Aero have a used example described as a 30's Work Coat in size 42-I think they would provide you with any information that you need.

    I was seriously considering the Aero 1920's Work Coat when it first came out. It seemed like an (much more) affordable version of the Himel Canuck. I waited to hear of people on TFL buying and reviewing it, but not many have made the purchase. It does appear pretty boxy to me as well.

    One pf the problems with jackets here is that you rarely see one that has been worn regularly for years. A boxy jacket will often mould to your shape and look much better with some decent miles on it.

    As for weight - a lighter leather 2.5 oz would, I believe, be more historically accurate for a jacket like this and would reduce the weight. I would prefer one of these in a mid-weight horse hide. I have longer (size 42 jackets) in 2.5 oz hides and they weigh around 4 to 5 pounds.

    I bought and sold a size 46 work coat from the lounge.it fitted small for a tagged 46 just not small enough for me to keep it .one size smaller and would have been my favourite jacket.Dark seal vicenza,,far easier to wear than the heavier leathers,,who owns it now? .I believe it went to Ireland ,
