"Two Tone Dustbowl"

While the design of our new 1930s half belt reflects the enforced austerity brought on by The Great Depression, yet at the same time typical of the flamboyance of those who survived this traumatic period in America's history relative unscathed.

While for most money and resources were stretched to their limits, most jacket manufactures were very conscious of saving as much leather as possible when designing a new jacket. Hence the relative abundance of two-tone leather jackets in comparison to other eras.

While this was a popular fashion item amongst the playgrounds of Hollywood and Manhattan, for the poor working man it was a way to get a cheap leather jacket as tailors strove to use every last piece of leather, putting together all manner of combinations of colours driven by need rather than design.

We feel this neat, slim fitting, multi panel Half Belt best reflects both sides of the great divide, typically of the era, most of the seams on this jacket are triple stitched which adds to the strength and the unique character of the jacket. The panel configuration lends itself perfectly for a two tone with plenty of contrast points.

We'll try to reflect the colour combination of the exterior in our choice of lining which, therefore will vary from jacket to jacket. The pockets are lined in moleskin and, of course, the Aero label is true to the style of the era Just like original jackets from the 1930s, our version is fitted with a "Hookless" grommet zipper as standard
