This jacket would be in my personal closet if it weren't for the length being a bit short for my height! An absolutely beautiful example of Aero's craftsmanship, this style is a rendition of the classic 1930's half-belt leather jacket.

This particular jacket is outfitted with a wool liner and stormcuffs, it's a beast of a jacket weighing in at 5lb! The only flaws to note are a tiny dime shaped hole in the liner above the Aero tag, and some residue on the back of the jacket which I am pretty sure can be cleaned off without issue. I've examined it and it doesn't appear to have damaged the leather, it has almost a sticky residue-like quality. I leave the cleaning to you. If I were keeping it, I would give it a cleaning and then a coat of Smith's Leather Balm.

The zippers both function well, the main zipper is ever so slightly stubborn to get up at the base, but I think a slight oiling would do wonders. pocket and sleeve linings are intact.

The brown steerhide is a striking color and shows some magnificent grain. I took photos of it in the shade and the final shot was taken in the sun for reference. I believe some of the creases in the leather are from storage, and should settle from being hung/worn, or maybe a even a gentle steaming.

See measurements below and don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions:

Pit to Pit (stretched out flat): 22"
Shoulder to Shoulder: 18"
Shoulder to end of Sleeve: 25"
Length down back (from bottom of collar): 23.5"
Waist: 20"

I'm 6'2 and 175lb, I am tall and slim for my height, the body fits me extremely well, and only the length is an issue.
