In 1984 we took our new design, The Highwayman, and added some motor orientated design features.
This jacket from the front view has a deep sloping yoke, two ball and chain zippered hand warmer pockets, a centre zipper, with buckle and strap side fastenings.
The back has a two-panel construction: upper sloping/V shaped yoke, large lower panel and an approximate 2" waistband. The sleeves also have brass zips for closure. The whole of the jacket is lined in our heavy duty cotton drill, which should add to its longevity.
This is an old favourite here at Aero and we hope that it brings back happy memories to all those older, wiser guys who made this a classic buy.
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.
