Aero's top of the range Longshoreman, the ultimate in foul weather protection. Inspired by the jackets worn in the 50's by the New York Longshoremen working in all weathers "On the Waterfront".

 

The body lining is 1/2" natural sheepskin. The sleeves are lined in durable Cord and feature inner woolen storm cuffs to keep the wind out. There are four deep cotton-lined pockets, two cargo pockets with blind stud down fastening under the pocket flaps, plus two handwarmer pockets, set inside a stylish raised seam feature. The bottom draws to a snug fit with neat 3/4" side strap and buckle adjusters, a much loved classic

This jacket is a 1950s inspired design which offers a fit with quite a bit of room around the body which was typical of the more relaxed fitting styles of this era.

The perceived ‘correct’ fit of the 1950s was generally more ‘oversized’ than modern sizing, so we typically recommend either selecting your usual size for this style to achieve the intended ‘1950s’ relaxed fit, although many choose to size down for a more modern fitted look.

Additionally, this jacket’s side adjusters are close to the hem and can be cinched in or out to achieve a more relaxed/fitted look around the hips.
