    To add, the circular cuff (Aero) actually has six layers at the two sleeve seams, and it’s circular, very hard to maneuver

    My GW-A-1 is my lightest weight jacket, and I try to get it into the sun as much as possible to prevent it from molding. Not too much sun lately so I wear it close to home, as it usually starts raining as soon as I go out and I don't want to get this one rained on.

    This vintage 70's Harro has just arrived. It's in a really good condition and leather is quite heavy and substantial like a Horween CXFQHH I would say. I'm really happy with the fit and length as it was a gamble.

    This looks spectacular. Tbh, it looks better than some of your 2K$ custom made jackets. I love it. Nice grain too. Great find.

    Also, nice too see something other than American designs. European designs are just as cool.

    Great jacket, Robbie. You got the European equivalent of the best made, rarest Durable or Buco or Rich Sheer. Know this.

    That fit is insane! Such a cool design and the leather looks thick and solid and beautiful. 10/10 can't be improved upon.

    I keep saying that for years; Harro is the best. If Harro is worth $80 on today's market, Schott should be like $15, Aero $35 and Vanson $55.

    This is my SB Halfbelt. I bought the jacket three or four years ago. I wasn't beware of the history at that day. Today I wouldn't by a SB again. Nevertheless this is a great jacket - especialy for the price. The first pictures is new. The other two a few years old. Unfortunately the jacket is a least one number to big as I lost 12kg.

    It might be on the larger side but to me it doesn't look like it's too big. Looks like a great jacket for layering.

    Wow!! Man that absolutely is the best fitting jacket you own and I dare say one of the coolest I’ve ever seen posted here. Look at that back design!!! That is nothing short of incredible!

    Looks perfect like a made to order piece. Love how clean this looks and the subtle padding on the shoulder/elbows. Congrats on another beautiful piece

    Too bad bad it doesnt fit as it used to but seemed like a great fit on you, but losing 12kg is no joke great job if you meant to shed the excess weight. Looks like the jacket has seen it's fair share of adventure. Welcome to the rabbit hole good sir.

    Restore continues on this Windward. I know I’ve said it before but I feel like this might be an all time favorite. I’ve given it a healthy conditioning and will get the lemon juice and sugar out to polish the brass when it’s dried. It’s remarkable how pristine some parts of the jacket are. The original storm cuffs and sleeve liner are mint. In my modest collection, which is mainly junk, this one stands out.

    What did you use as conditioner?

    My windward looks like it could use some conditioner too. It looks a bit dull.

    I use Urad “tenderly” first and them Creme second. If you want I have enough to polish yours before I ship it. Up to you. It does work wonders on old brown horse.
