This is one of Aero’s most special jackets.
We’ve had a classic piece of 1930s Tweed replicated to the millimetre. This unique cloth has been hand loomed and woven exclusively for Aero by Prickly Thistle Mills on original restored Victorian looms here in Scotland using Jamieson’s wool. The fine detailing replicating the classic 1930s “Broken Weave” must be seen to be fully appreciated.
While these classic Wool and Leather Utility jackets were very common in the 1930s, over the decades originals have become hard to find, most having succumbed to nearly a century of wear. We are excited to announce this new Wool and Leather Half Belt style, always a favourite of ours, which features a leather insert in the centre back pleat, full leather sleeves, facings, top collar and front yokes with under cuffs and undercollar in our superb new Tweed. It’s hard to find a more comfortable or easier to wear style. Jacket comes with a cotton drill lining as standard.
This jacket is a 1930s inspired design which offers a closer fit to the body as was typical of the slimmer fitting styles of this era.
The perceived ‘correct’ fit of the 1930s is generally similar to modern sizing, so we typically recommend selecting your usual size for this style to achieve the intended fit.
We very rarely recommend sizing down.
Don’t worry, all sizing information displayed here is only a guide. Every order placed is checked over by a member of our production team who will confirm your size selection against your measurements or recommend any necessary changes that need to be made. If you have any specific queries, you can note these in the special instructions box on the ‘measurements’ page when placing your order.
