For many years we've been making "The Waterfront", a reproduction of the 1950's Buffalo checked work jacket worn by Brando in "On The Waterfront". Like everyone else, we believed Brando's jacket was Green & Black, until some rare colour footage was discovered a few years ago showing the film jacket was, in fact, Red and Black.
Consequently, we now offer a 100% perfect replica of the film jacket, in both Green and Red. The cloth is woven by a British Mill capable of replicating the look and feel of a wool cloth typical of pre-WW2 utility wear, something that these days is rarely found outside vintage clothing stores.
The jacket is hand-made in Scotland in our Galashiels factory and it's fitted with 100% wool knit in black, a heavy black cotton drill lining as standard and a period style zipper. It has been drawn to our attention that the checks on our version match perfectly, while the jacket used in the film was very badly matched. Sorry, but we just can't bring ourselves to send out a mismatched version, it's just not Aero!!!!
