"Speedway"

In addition to our mail order / retail work Aero has been commissioned to do many research and development projects for some very well known brands during our 30 odd years.

We worked hand in hand with Levi Vintage assisting in the development of what was then a new project for Levis. One of the first jackets Levis brought to us was a badly wrecked Goatskin jacket with two numbers painted on the left sleeve. The provenance that came with the original 1930s jacket, and the research done on Google, lead us to believe that this was a speedway rider's jacket, the scars and tears were certainly commensurate with such use.

For the Levi Limited Edition production jacket that ensued (around 1000 were made) we had to recreate the heavy wear of the original piece although we always felt that an un-aged version would have been a much better option and here it is. As we did the development work and patterns for the project, Levis gave us permission to produce our own version once their "Blue / Black" jacket was sold out, and now seems an ideal opportunity to do so.

We've changed nothing on our current jacket except the lining which was an over delicate rayon and of course, the label, these aren't Levi jackets after all, and we won't be aging these which are available in our highly regarded Seal Brown Goatskin or our mid weight Jerky Horsehide.

Standard lining is Tartan Cotton

Just to perfect the overall appearance, lightly padded shoulders give this jacket a superb profile and that final touch of uniqueness.
