    This is a cool jacket. Star Wars nerd alert - the patch above the zipper pocket looks like it's ready for a rebel officer's rank plaque or something, which adds to the cool factor (for me, anyway. I know, sad, ain't it?).

    Heh, good to see a HB in a period correct length! Looks awesome! I didn't even recognize it as Aero at first. It's exactly like those leather jackets we see on those 50's photos. Superb fit.

    ^Agreed. If I have one regret on my HB order it's the length. I should've spec' fit 1-1.5" shorter.

    Thanks gents. The trousers help, they're blue SJC 1930s-cut chinos with a vintage rise so they sit on my waist rather than my hips. Or it could just be that I'm only 5'8" tall hahahaha!

    Aero Mulligan in tumbled brown fqhh.

    I bought This jacket used and I think it is from time when Aero used much thicker and stiffer fqhh. Its almost too stiff for my liking as it must be closer to 4.0 oz but I love the colour and the fit.

    Also I noticed that my arms are too shorts for proper jacket selfies.

    Nooo, it's perfect. Also, 1" wouldn't make much of a difference anyway plus the back would just crease enough with time so that the jacket would actually end up being annoyingly too short - that is of course if you don't plan on wearing those high raise trousers, but then you'd again need another jacket that's 4" shorter. :D

    Man! That’s a beautiful jacket! Really love the Hercules! Already thinking of my next aero while sitting on the couch with my new FQHH board racer - crazy how stiff this thing is

    if you put it on every day, it'll be soft within weeks. If you're tired of sitting on the coach in it, sit on the couch on it. When I received my first Aero, a Teamster, I'd fold it up, sit on it while watching tv, unfold, fold the other way, sit on it again, and volunteer for every walk the dog needed, especially when it rained. Poor dog saw a lot more rain and walking than it liked. :D The stories of FQHH not breaking in for ages are 85% cases of people only putting on the jacket once a week at best and 15% cases of storse jackets from back in these days.

    That won’t happen! I bought this jacket to become my favorite go everywhere jacket. I will try to wear it as much as possible! Actually the smell is quite hypnotic
