This superb recreation of a typical 1950s work jacket is identical to the jacket worn by Brando in "On The Waterfront".
The British woven all wool cloth is exclusive to Aero, we've had it woven in "hard" wool so it has got that firm to the touch hand that is so typical of pre-WW2 utility wool which is usually only found in vintage clothing. We currently only stock this cloth in Green and Black although the Mill is trying to source a Red wool yarn, but that's a project for next Winter. Right now we can offer our Green & Black jacket fitted with 100% wool knit in black, cotton drill lining and a period style zipper standard. Alternatively, for Winter wear, we could make one to order with a full black Alpaca Wool lining, an upgrade available for an extra £20.

For many years we've offered an Aero version of an original 1930s reversible Wool and Horsehide copied exactly from an original in our archives. It took us nearly 10 years to source the right wool to replicate our version, the 1930s original is still in our archives and can be compared to the Aero versionl .
