Over the years certain styles have temporarily disappeared from our range, usually occurring with the launch of a new catalogue or updated website usually when a new catalogue or website was launched. Somehow our Wool and Leather Half Belts have regularly fallen into this category, but in recent months there seems to have been an upsurge in demand for these fine jackets by our loyal customers.
As we've been inundated with requests to reintroduce this style, here it is again , a style we first offered as far back as the early 1990s We've rescued the original patterns from the mothballs and fine tuned the proportions. We have raised the waistband and pocket positions, trimmed the sleeves ever so slightly and added a centre pleat to the back. Nothing too drastic, and certainly nothing that would alter the character or period authenticity of the jacket, we've just improved an already fine design.
We've also tried a few other combinations of wool and leather and found that the panel configuration of our "Pioneer" is perfect for this style, everyone at Aero loves this new version of our old favourite.
Basically both variations of the jacket have the same back, sleeve and cuff, but with quite different fronts, so the choice is Type I, the original with the long leather panel alongside the zipper or the Type II with a leather yoke instead. Please choose preferred style via the drop down option box. Both versions are fitted with a pure cotton Tartan lining and an original vintage Talon zipper as standard.
