If You are from Sweden, how come You can wonder that. Here in Nordic countries development of prices of products and services has even been more harsh than in UK.That's something I don't assume of course. As I've written earlier, I'm very satisfied with my Aero. I think it's an excellent jacket, and it was very much worth it's price when I bought it. I was just wondering about the price increase, but I realise that my question has touched a sensitive subject as I also compared Aero A-2s with Fivestars, and it was never my intention to step on somebody's toes with this thread.
Taxes, social security taxes, pension security payments etc are really not on same level as they used to be 10, 15 or 20 years ago.
I wish I could get many products with same price I used to pay 10 years ago. One of those is a cup of coffee or a pint of a beer, but that is already another story.
What I can say I really never couldnt nor wouldnt have bought a Finnish or Swedish made leather jacket, if anyone is even making those.
Prices are immediately out of my reach. AERO's prices were affordable, despite they are located in Scotland.
