“We shouldn’t complain but despite increasing our production staff to 18 over the last year we still can’t make any inroads to our waiting lists.The obvious answer is to train up another batch of machinists, to do this we need to re-organise our factory and our extensive archive of high grade vintage clothing is going to have to be severely reduced to make room for a new training school. There’s so much to clear it’s ... (more)

Back in the 1980s Aero made a replica of the classic early 20th Century man's working boot, the type worn across the Globe before WW2, made famous by such diverse and legendary characters as Charlie Chaplin and The Jarrow Marchers. Production of the Aero version came to a slightly abrupt halt when our cobbler retired and it's taken us a while to find a British Shoemaker capable of recreating this legendary boot to our satisfaction.

We've recently completed a large trade order for a full range of Aero Type A-2 jackets, 38-1711-P, 40-3785-P, 42-15142-P and 42-18775-P. It was a very complicated order with lots of different specs, zippers, plus more than one change in the order during production, various colours and hides used, some adapted lengths etc, which can be a little difficult sometimes! This has left us with a surplus of A-2 jackets left from this order, with overmakes ... (more)
Over the coming months another range of jackets will become available through the sale page under 'The Blue Label'.

We've started piecing together jackets from the left over stock, as it's a ... (more)

We must apologise for the totally unacceptable delay in delivering sheepskin flying jackets this Winter, sadly the team running Aero from 2004 to last Autumn had been giving very unrealistic delivery dates considering the size of our order book and added to this, we feel the quality of sheepskin we've inherited when we resumed the running of Aero is way below Aero standard.
Our first priority is to provide a garment that merits the Aero label ... (more)
