It’s been this way everyday since they landed. I bought three Wranglar Wrange coats, one corduroy from Japan that’s a disaster and found a new with tag dead stock from the 70’s due this week. I was legitimately thinking about chucking all my leather at one point. Thankfully I weathered that mental storm as I’ll probably hate these next year. lol.

Next year being only a few weeks away, so sounds about right. ;)

Finally got photos of my 50s Sierra Sportswear jacket. Overall fits me well, though it oddly pinches in the arm pits and the shoulders were hung improperly so that's quite annoying.

Another aspect of many vintage jackets I'm loving is the minimal or nonexistant front drop. Being a shorter guy with a large chest, this really suits me well.

Square pockets rule:)

Haven't been wearing this as much since it turned very cold, moved into the 50s today and was prime weather.

Aero A1 in Russet goat, semi aniline. Forgive the mirror pic but it turns out folks at the oil firm aren't keen on being photographers.

If I could change anything I'd add about 1/4" to the ptp. But I snagged it for 375gbp vs the normal price of 810gbp. Can't say no to a 55% sale.

Still hasn't settled down in the back but I do like the length overall.

That’s a great fit. People usually wears it, and the Maxwell, too long. I think the length on yours is how it was intended to look.

Is it cordovan or brown?
Thanks! The back is 22.5", so the front is a little longer with the drop. I'm on the shorter side at 5'9" so the length works well for me.

The color is brown but this particular batch may have had a bit of red undertones to it. Others have asked if this was cordovan as well. I suspect that the lower angle of the sun also affects the coloring somewhat as well.
