    Again, would be great to see it worn by someone or on a mannequin.

    I saw this hide at Aero last week. Beautiful stuff; given what Murray said it costs them per hide, it's little wonder there has to be an upcharge for using this one!

    Hi Mendalboaz,

    It's $1199.99 USD. Really good looking leather!

    That's the color of our Standard Seal...however, we specify ours with a bit more grain... The leather on the right is unaged...it will acquire patina with age and use.

    Here's a good photo of the Seal--

    Carrie.. Not sure if this has been asked before. How does the thickness and the weight of these leathers compare to the Horween FQHH?

    The Italian veg tanned HH is lighter and less rigid than the Horween FQHH.

    My feeling is the existent Aero mid weight hides are mediocre, whereas the FQHH is still the king of the jungle and the Italians moving fast up the food chain. SJ

    Just paid the deposit on a Shackleton waistcoat in the seal version of this new Italian HH. Now the wait until October begins.

    I hate to go against the grain 'ahem' here but I feel that the Horween FQHH is too stiff most of the time. The majority of jackets I see in it look like they are wearing the owner not the other way around. This is one of the big reasons I'd never gone for an Aero before. This new Vicenza HH seems to me it'll be a little more forgiving to one's form. Sometime in October I'll now be able to find out.

    Wow. Selling me fast!

    Carrie, if and when possible, can you photo a seal and a russet Vicenza jacket together? It would be great to see colour comparison in the same light of actual made-up jackets.

    Comments on the below also appreciated:
    Do the Plainsman, Wayfarer, Dustbowl and Highwayman each have their own unique collar shapes? Or are they all the same collar pattern on different bodies?
    Which collar, in your opinion is the larger and which would be the most retro-styled? Thanks...

    Congrats!

    Exactly, and hence the reason I never previously ordered an Aero jacket notwithstanding the great quality and extensive design options. Ironically, I was sent a Horween FQHH tester jacket to use for purposes of ordering my Vicenza HH jacket -- for me, personally, it was far too heavy and essentially unwearable, thus confirming my prior opinion (the extra weight is likely desirable for motorcycle riders, of which I am not).

    In an odd twist of fate, I think Andy/Bill Kelso deserves marginal/tangential credit for focusing attention on the virtues of Italian HHs and motivating others (e.g., Insurrection and GW) to consider and explore the option. Eastman has been using Italian HH (Warhorse) for a few years, but others did not follow suit. Then, Andy/Bill Kelso aggressively promoted the attributes of Italian HH here and elsewhere, and attracted the attention of many consumers. Kudos to Carrie/Insurrection and GW for taking note and expanding their options to meet the growing interest. Separately, kudos for the respectful manner with which you have marketed your new leather, devoid of disparaging comparisons to other leathers.
