    It came from @technovox who bought it from some guy in the boonies. A real “barn find,” it even had straw in the pockets. :)

    They did horsehide too.

    The Steerhide shows up more often.

    They do have a very nice tailored fit.

    Its jegging season temp wise, but damn this pants feel flimsy:confused:, just found a perfect use for that blue + beige canvas belt I rarely use.

    I’d take the refund and move on. It’s not like it’s your sole jacket.

    True but it is my soul jacket. This hide ...it can’t be duplicated. In almost 15 years of collecting Aero...it’s the only one of its kind I’ve encountered. True 4.5 maybe even 5oz mega steer.

    Keep it. And do so because it's not perfect which means your expectations are no longer an important part of the enjoyment you get wearing it. It doesn't need to be pristine and fawned over, it can we worn and trashed. This is a jacket you can let your kid wear because it has so much of yourself and history in it. The cut is just a story that will always be part of the history of this jacket.

    Indeed. After my repair and a couple of days of wear it’s all but forgotten. In other words:

    My long awaited Lost Worlds CHP arrived today and I couldn’t be happier.

    This beast weighs in at almost 10 pounds but it feels pretty comfortable right out of the box. The horsehide is thicker than that of any other jacket I own with the possible exception of my vintage Cal Leathers CHP.
    I’m quite pleased with the fit, especially knowing that it will only improve as the jacket settles in and softens up a bit.
