Vintage Aero Jacket

Hi all,

My dad recently gave me this Aero jacket, he couldn’t remember when he bought it, but I would guess probably 20 years ago or so. I was wondering if anyone could identify any of the specifics of this jacket, like leather or when it was made? I think it’s a Highwayman? Thanks so much!

Blue Label Highwayman, probably because of the grain difference between panels. Not sure which leather that would be; could be russet Jerky?

I'm surprised nobody else has mentioned it but if you look inside the front pockets, one of them will have a makers label with the name of the person who made the jacket, the item number or even the exact date it was made. If you just have the item number it will narrow it down and you can email Aero and ask them for the age and type of hide that's been used.
Other than that just put it on and get it broken into your shape. It looks in excellent condition so fingers crossed it fits you
