    Looks good. Is this a new one for you? Is yours wool lined like mine? I saw one of those in the same colour while in Japan and it was really nice.

    I really like my RC single rider and by posting yours, you have inspired me to wear mine today.

    I think that just about any mismatching (unless it's a huge mistake in colouration) will wear in and become more uniform over time: mismatching would be less visible in battered seal, I'd think, but even when Aero states that there's actual mismatching on a jacket, it wouldn't bother me or I wouldn't be able to tell.

    Here's my mismatched battered seal BarnStormer. The main mismatched area is the right shoulder.

    I purchased mine end of 2018 from a fellow lounge member from Belgium. Yes, it's wool lined like yours which is getting almost too warm now. RC makes really good quality jackets and the Shinki used is, I guess, from the same source Freewheelers gets the Shinki from. Glad to hear that I inspired you to wear yours which fits and suits you perfectly - if you don't mind you can post a picture. Btw. there are sometimes really reasonable offers (approx. 1000€ or sometimes less) on Buyee.com for new RC jackets....I was often tempted but always resisted.

    I don't think that's mismatched, and would wear in. It's battered and creasing is normal. I had areas like that on both battered seal and battered tan jackets.

    Wow, really really good looking jacket but I can't see the mismatched parts (all looks pretty much the same IMO)...I know I'm getting older....;)

    Thanks. I am more confident about his leather then if the normal batch will look better than this mismatched one.

    Ken told me it's a mismatched jacket. I will pose more photos when I have it on hand in this fall.

    The whole jacket will look uniform within a month. It'll all get creased up very quickly.

    No, I don't. I'm still undecided as I'm not sure whether or not it would really suit me. However, independently from my decision I think the coat is really beautiful and unique (@red devil -> could be also something for you...) and the mismatched seal battered HH is matching this jacket/coat style IMO. Price is rather high for an Aero jacket - here's Ken's statement: "We’ve not got to the pricing stage yet but it’ll be hovering around the £1000 mark, a lot of work, lot of leather, very special lining etc"

    Im much more of a brown jacket guy than a black jacket guy so this one suits me. Its still relatively new and has slowly started to crease up.. It will continue to evolve and be in a different phase this time next year.

    Hh, l.w. russet on my ryder seemed very smooth at first but it did break to reveal plenty of grain and character. The smell on mine is amazing it is a very pleasant aroma.
