Has anyone ordered a Aero A2 in Black Seal Jerky...?
No I don't think so. The 50 cal ones are what ELC call "Time Worn", a fancy name for the fact they've been "tastefully" distressed.Like 50cal from ELC right? Same purpose more or less
By the photos Ken posted here, it really looks nice! I love the wrinkles too on a leather. Would be nice if he could send me some little samples in different colours of the Jerky one ))I'm seen both the jerky and the 50 cal up close. The jerky is really nice stuff, the top coat tends to wear at the high points on it to reveal the underlying colour - seriously nice leather. My old boss had a Time Worn A-2 that he picked up at Duxford, nice but I'd rather "distress" a jacket myself with real wear. This is obviously subjective but I liked the jerky better.
Just ask Serghei, Aero are always happy to send leather samples. Jerky is probably one of the most forgotten about leathers. Everybody is so busy harping on about Shinki, Italian fancy pants this and that, and that jerky stuff flies under the radar. The stuff I saw in person was beautiful leather and great for an A-2. I think Cocker here has an A-2 in Aero's jerky so you could do a shout out to him and see if he can post some snaps if a search here at VLJ doesn't reveal anything.By the photos Ken posted here, it really looks nice!
