    Thanks jj. The octagon colour really makes it stand out. Hopefully I can find a new owner to give it the appreciation it deserves. Dh

    Love the Octagon color and would be a nice addition to my collection, but not my size. Just wanted to stop in and admire the color and say GLWS

    Vanson’s rendition of the Windward. My experience with the octagon is it’s a bit plastic and thin, I assume it gets spongier and less glossy with wear?

Certainly wouldn’t say plastic and thin when describing the leather. I’ve owned many aero jackets and it’s easily on par with their quality if not better than some. The leather is thick with a distinctive natural grain. I think it’s classed as their competition weight and I would say tough but still flexible enough to wear. Like some Aero horsehide, you can stand the jacket up of its own accord. The sheen in the picture is largely due to the picture quality. In reality the leather has a more flat finish. That said it’s not as dull as say Aero’s tumbled FQHH. I will try and add a few more pics as these were taken on a bright day with lots of reflective light.
