    Can you get a refund and order new same specs now or down the road?

    I cannot imagine removing a sleeve and swapping a panel shipped to aero and back would be cheap. That would be the only place I would trust to do the job.

    I’m curious to see what Denny suggests. Can’t be the first time they’ve seen it. Not sure how complex it would be. I don’t think the sleeve would need to come off but that might well be the case and if so...yeah that’s probably getting too expensive. I’m heartbroken and disappointed in many ways. This kind of hide is not a common occurrence

    Or get a partial refund, keep it, and wear the hell out of it @ton312

    Didn't notice how long that cut was before. That leather and color is amazing. I'm sure Aero can do something

    Thankfully that’s been taken care of. I’ll see what the repair cost looks like and make a decision from that. The jacket can never be sold/traded again in its current state so if the repair cost is too great I will just wear the piss out of it. Maybe all my jackets should come with a sale preventive “tag” like this.

    It’s only a cut for about 1”. The rest is shallow and if it was only that deep the whole way I wouldn’t even care. Sorry to bogart this thread. Case is closed.

    I have some Leather Milk Healing Balm on its way. It is supposed to “heal” scratches. I’ll report soon. As for the cut- filler and sealer. Then dye it back.

    Leather Milk is awesome for the shallow stuff. I really like it. The deeper gash would need flexifill or a binder then dye, as you state. If one takes time to apply, it works and hard to see. Lots of videos online.

    The next owner of the jacket will be very appreciative. :p

    I don't think postage and a repair will be as bad as you think for cost. I'm sure Aero will make it look almost invisible.

    You may have to just massage that panel a bit while you watch a movie or two. I had to do it with a Schott. A black one, and not cordovan, but I still had to wear in a panel on heavy horse hide and it worked out just fine.

    Not this time. And frankly, never again! Lesson learned.

    No, I can assure you. I’m done selling discount Aeros.

    My latest Thurston jacket turned up in their typical box but under the opening between the two front panels they had taped another full length layer of cardboard....I'm guessing to stop these sorts of accidents happening....I did think at the time it was a very smart precaution!!

    @ton312 I'm curious what the seller said about it, did he do it accidentally when he first opened the box from you?

    That seems to be the first thing that comes to my mind.

    I don’t think so. I use the same method as TB. Actually Johnson Leathers taught me that. I know he moved so I suspect it was in an unlabeled box and carelessly opened. Shit happens. Life goes on. He’s made amends with me as far as I’m concerned. I may still pursue a legit repair but I couldn’t wait. I used some flexible epoxy and shoe polish to fairly decent results. It will likely come undone at some point and need to be redone but for now, I can have my Saturday cocktails without feeling glum.
