    This jacket has been on eBay for a while. I’ve copied the title if you want to search for it - “AERO LEATHER Jacket Outer Coat Veste des Rallye Men's Size 36 Brown Genuine USED“. I love this thing but you’ll notice the wax coming out of the hide and the price. I think it’s too high. It’s too small for me but I can’t help be curious about the condition and price. If it were priced differently, much lower, I might risk it. Anyone have thoughts?

    Why not post a link and make it easier?

    I looked it up. Nice looking leather, but a broken button. Shouldn't be any more than $500 in its condition. Japanese sellers on ebay always seem to be very overpriced. On Yahoo Japan this would probably go for $40000-50000¥.

    Are the oils coming out an issue? There seem to be some conflicting views on the internet about what to do about it.

    Aeros longer coats don't sell (very well) at all. Even in new condition, you're lucky to get like 50% of new price. This coat has tons of wear. And trust me, that alpaca lining is gonna smell like the previous owner for forever. That jacket is worth 400 USD, no more.

    I had a little debate with myself and wasn’t sure. I didn’t think it was a deal and may not have been a find either so I figured “someone’s selling it.” Sorry if I got the post in the wrong place.
