    Love these photos of our customer in Cali in his magnificent custom Aero in Blackened Brown Vicenza! Keep up that rain in California--it's good for fire season and for leather jackets :cool:

    Here's a great customer fit photo from a few years ago...this was one of the first jackets in the Blackened Brown Vicenza! The customer had a swipe with some pavement due to a mishap with his bike, but both he and the jacket fared well. The leather ended up with some nice wear that shows the brown color underneath the black overdye!

    That jacket looks really cool now. Looks predominantly brown with some black patches. Is that the usual behaviour of this leather? The black vanishes fairly fast?

    This jacket is an example of accelerated wear and in an unusual place! The Blackened Brown won't turn brown overall...it will wear to the Dark Seal in the usual places (cuff ends, seams, regular contact areas), but the main parts will keep most of the black overdye. There's likely to be some variation from batch to batch of the Blackened Brown, but the wear patterns will depend most on the wearer!

    Spotted on The Fedora Lounge! This (original pattern) Aero Ridley in Black Vicenza has been worn for a while and has developed wonderful creasing and shaping with wear--
