Hi everyone, Just received my first Aero jacket few weeks ago. The result is quite good and I am happy with how it fits. The badalassi leather is beautiful and doesn’t require a break in at all. Pics are as follows: However I found out that the difference between the final product and the measurements I required initially can be pretty big. Some of the differences actually worked in my favor but some doesn’t. The measurement I spec’ed: back length 23.5 Sleeve length 23.75 Extra waist taper 1.5 across > Target measurement 18.5 Jacket I got: Back Length 23 Sleeve Length 23-23.25 Hem 19 The measurements are just about within the half inch tolerance that aero stated. The shorter back length is actually nice, 23.5 might be too long. The Hem has a little room and comfortable but if it was 18.5 I might not need to use the strap on the side to tighten the waist. The biggest issue is the sleeve length, when the jacket is out of the box it felt alright but after the creases formed after wearing it for a few days I felt it was short. So I soaked the sleeves in water for around half an hour, slid 2 large half filled water bottles down the 2 sleeves and hung the jacket to dry hanging on a padded hanger. It worked and I think it gave me about half an inch. Some vertical graining appeared because of the stretching but it doesn’t bother me. Initially the p2p measured 21.6 and after a few weeks it stretched to around 22.25. I have a chest around 40 (with T shirt on). I feel I wouldn’t call it a snug fit but I don’t think it looks sloppy. I can layer and the jacket is very comfortable with minimal restriction. So now I’m planning to order another half belt in black CXL Steerhide and I’m not 100% sure which one I should go for. I want the half belt to be a slim fit. Can accommodate light layering if needed (Shirt + T shirt underneath). I asked Holly for measurements for the premier range half belt in 40, regular 1930 half belt in 38 and 40. These are the measurements I got. Premier HB 40” Pit to Pit 21.5" Shoulders 17.5-18" 1930s 38” Pit to Pit 21" Shoulders 17.75 1930s 40” Pit to Pit 22-22.5" Shoulders 18.25" Out of all three I’m thinking of going for the premier half belt in 40. 21.5 p2p should be right for me. Probably a little on the snug side with light layer but might relax after some wear. But I’m not sure if it would be too much given the CXL steer is a bit thicker than badalassi. I would ask for the waist taper to be around the same. A target of 18.5 should be about right. Half an inch either way I should be able to live with. For the back length Im thinking of maybe 22.25-22.5. Given there is a 1.5 front drop on half belt. The hooch hauler has a flat hem and I don’t want it to be any shorter on the front. Wouldn’t mind the front to be half an inch longer too I guess? The sleeve length I would need to think about. The shoulder of the premier is about half an inch shorter than the hooch hauler and I spec’ed the hooch hauler too short at 23.75 and I have to stretch it out. So maybe this time I should go for 24.25 or even 24.5? Any input and advice are appreciated regarding the fit on the hooch hauler and the upcoming half belt. Have a good day everyone!
