One of Aero’s most long lived designs. This multi purpose jacket borrows various features typical of the late 1940s and blend the best of these into this unique one-off design whilst giving the appearance of an original period example.
This jacket is similar to our popular Bootlegger jacket but with a central zipper. It has a typical 3 pocket front with an angled zippered breast pocket and two slash hand warmer pockets. It has a bi-swing back for greater freedom of movement when driving or riding. The cuffs can be tightened by adjusting straps. Although based on our 1950s Pattern Block, it fits a little bit tighter around the hem than our Highwayman and Half Belt styles, perhaps closer in fit and cut to a Motorcycle jacket.
It is a very versatile style which has proved popular amongst owners of vintage cars and motorcycles and with general wearers. We think that the jacket looks at its best in brown front quarter horsehide but it is also available as an option in black.
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.
