Greetings Panda! Super special Aero Type-3 in Raw Horsehide you have there. I often wondered what one would look like and now I know. I really like my Natural Vicenza Type-3 and it has aged quite well over the year I've had it. Your jacket will become even more spectacular over time I'm sure. Maybe keep a running photo log of the transition from new to seasoned. Lucky you to have such an extensive collection of enviable jackets!

Well I went ahead and tried the next size up in the Toys McCoy Code 33. It’s definitely a little roomier which I think I prefer for this style, while only being 1/4” longer in the body and sleeves.

10/10. While I do believe you pull off the smaller one like a Rockstar, this is exactly the fit I would be aiming for.

Gosh, those wrinkles!!! Did you store that one in your jeans pockets?

Seriously though: looks really great, and I never even heard about the maker before...
Yeah... It's pretty wild, but it's a cheaper "cardboardery" hide and it exaggerates it as well.

^^Some of those older Bermans are selling now for higher price points on ebay than they were new in the store. Also they seemed to source better leather in those days then when they were swapped over to Wilsons.

Great jackets and certainly miss being able to go to a local store and try on anything. They were built to a price-point, but hey that's where my love of leather started. Here's a fun little video from ~ 2013 of a Wilson's store, to give an idea how it was.
