The Veste des Rallye successfully captures the period feel of 1960's motoring. First made by Aero in 1994 to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the mighty Mini Cooper's first of four consecutive Monte Carlo Rally victories (although the French did manage to find a way to disqualify the winning Mini in 1966).
The Veste des Rallye is timeless in design, from its boxy 60's styled car coat cut to its simple two pocket design. This Horsehide jacket will soon become a trusted friend.
Each garment is made entirely by a single highly skilled machinist, lined in pure Alpaca Wool imported from Peru and finished with keyhole sewn button holes and hand-stitched buttons (these will not fall off in a couple of years!). A really simple easy to wear "over jacket".
We know a thing or two about the rigours of Classic Rallying, our founder and his son driving an Aero Leather sponsored 1962 AC Cobra, won the 1993 Manx Mountain Challenge and the photo above shows Aero Leather's Mini Cooper S 277BRX competing in The 1996 Scottish Rally
For open top Classic motoring, there is no other car coat that can compare with the Veste Des Rallye, warm enough for an Alpine stage, weather proof enough for a Scorttish Winter and strong and hardy enough to throw on the ground while working under the car.......wherever the need arises!
