    I think that the jacket is almost a decade old- the pocket outlines were visible soon after purchase and didn't worry me. They make the jacket my go-to for long distance travel.

    Aero Stockman today. It's been re-admitted into the (thinned) herd. It's slowly (i.e. 7 years slowly) wearing through to brown... It's a size 40, and although I can easily layer a sweater under it, it's also not a bulky fit. The patch pockets are unlined (don't know if this is standard or just because I requested them to be), and don't puff out at all. No inner pockets in this one- not having them helps the line of the jacket.

    Wow, amazing jacket and fantastic fit....can’t decide if I like this one more on you or your new Thedi! I‘ve never really dared to buy a Langlitz for whatever reason. What hide and heaviness (Oz) is used for it?

    Thanks Robbie. Sleeves are a bit long but I ordered it that way in case I use it on my motorcycle. They call it a medium weight hide but it would be more like a Vanson competition weight. I am unsure of the official thickness. They do offer a lighter weight hide as well as goat. Their horse is an extra $1000 US so not worth it in my opinion. They will mail you hide samples if you ask.

    I would say maybe not quite as heavy as your Lost Worlds jacket and much easier break in. It seemed a bit stiff at first but is breaking in quickly as I wear it more and more. The weather has been the only thing hampering break-in as it is getting pretty warm here during the day now. I am lucky if I can wear it to work in the morning when it is + 5 to + 10 C but by lunch, no way. It is + 22 C by then.

    I actually asked Langlitz about this just couple of days ago. I was wondering if I should change my order from medium black to lightweight black because I don't want another jacket I would need to break in. Here's what they said:


    "According to the internet, Vanson’s “competition weight” is 1.3 to 1.4mm thick. Our medium weight is 1.2 to 1.4mm. So it’s pretty much the same thickness/weight. Although, there are other factors that can make a leather stiff. Our colored leather runs on the heavier side, but is much suppler than our standard black or brown cowhide.

    I think switching to our lightweight cowhide is a good idea. It is 1.00 to 1.2mm thick. Not a huge difference compared to the medium weight, and actually since both are a range, they can even be about the same. But…. The lightweight cowhide is much suppler than the medium, and it has a wonderful, slippery/greasy feel to it, like real horsehide has, that the medium doesn’t have."


    Edit: I strongly recommend asking any questions you may have directly from Langlitz. I've been harassing them with my questions since last October and after a lot of back and forward I just placed my order few days ago, and I've had nothing but the best customer service and patient answers to my ever evolving questions and ideas.

    Well, I do have royal blue cross zip, burgundy/ navy twotone peacoat, and camo leather / green canvas jacket coming in near future so my collection is indeed getting more colourful soon!
