How does the shearling affect the measurements would you say?

True or size up?

I think Aero automatically size up one size for Shearling liner. Just from what I've read here. Best to check with them directly. The furs do compact down a bit but there is some minimum bulk and weight with the shearling.

The quilted liner in comparison probably just 1/2 size difference at most. They are just puffy, but bulky. If you can wear a wool vest under your jacket now, you'd be able to wear that same size jacket with a quilted liner, but now there is no need for the extra vest. Make sense for me as most of the time when I need a jacket the temp range is 0-10 Celcius. But I can see the quilted liner not necessary for warmer climates.

0-10 Celsius is an almost perfect winter range for me, although rigth now I’m more attracted for shearling lining than to quilted one…

You have to order one size more (36/38” (depend of model) instead a 34/36” for me) or Aero would adjust it with the linning?

No, I think you'd just order your regular size and they (Aero) upsize it for you to accomodate the shearling lining. Check with @Hide'n'seek

I think that probably I’ll go with goat , it seems the best option if it’s going to suffer rain… although I had a crush with russet and tobacco Badalassi and in some ways I have the prejudice of thinking that horse hide is superior leather to goat that seems as animal too clase to lamb

Goat varies in thickness, but it's really not close to lamb in use. Light, yes, but it hasa strength and an abrasion resistance that sets it far away from lamb. Goat's next only to kangaroo for abrasion resistance; it's that plus flexability isthe reason why it is do commonly used for motorcycle gloves, among other things.

In terms of longevity.... sheep and lamb were very common in pre-×war British leather jackets, and may be why so few of those, relatively speaking, seem to have survived. Goat, on the other hand.... A2s were either horse (and apparently often steer) or goat. Of the originals I've seen, the goats tends to be the better survivors.
