    It’s already been conditioned. It came to me essentially white/smoke from age. Maybe one more coat of wax but right now it’s sitting in it’s sweet spot of hydration. The more I’ve spent time with it, the more I love it. Can’t recall seeing another like it. Special place for this one. For now:)

    I’m going to throw out a newbie guess here, JL? Awesome! Perfect fit.

    Man, that is perfect. The color, the fit, the style. It’s so good that I’d get a weird itch to lock it in a safe instead of wearing it.

    Today: Aero Original Herc in Black Badalassi. I really like the hide a lot. Something different for sure.

    The other thing is that the fit is absolutely perfect after the remake. I planned to have this for cooler temps, and I can easily wear a sweater under it, yet it still works with just a T-Shirt.

    Nice! Who's the maker of this one? I don't recognize that unusual lower pocket layout on your left side.

    Ralph Lauren right? You know the only reason I seeked out an Aero was because I was looking for something that was made better and cost less than RL. And now it just came full circle for me. Back to looking at Ralph Lauren…. Haha…. They do vintage inspired very well.

    Perfect fit! This is one of the Aero’s best repro choices, great jacket.

    Yep, keeping it simple. Good to see you and the Brooks again.

    When you find a jacket that is equally stellar with a T and with a sweater, you hit it. It’s why I love my LW Trojan. It works on me. I need to go back and look but I’m pretty sure it is the only jacket where I can say that. Looks great good sir.

    Another awesome fitting jacket. Did they give you a smooth or grainy hide? My order says it's in the Factory so hopefully I'll get mine soon

    Thank you very much! It’s pretty heavy too and still relatively stiff. Not CXL heavy or stiff, but it will drape even better when broken it. Amazing hide, really.

    Thanks much! Definitely mustn’t buy more jackets…;)

    The hide is in fact pretty grainy. Together with the shiny, almost lacquered coating it makes for a spectacular look.

    Looking forward to seeing your jacket too!

    That is a very nice fit. I've owned several versions including the Aero and none of them worked for me. I also have an Original, but too small for wearing. Something in the length, I was just too short. Your jacket looks great. I missed the back shot? Interior?

    Sears first showed the backs of jackets in 1935 catalog. The Original Hercules shows up in the 1936 catalog. First Half-Belt leather in the Sears catalog.

    Been talking Taubers in another thread. One of my favorite jackets. Beautiful Deep Black Horsehide.

    Perfect fit for a “more than a tee” look.
