Over the 30 odd years since Aero was founded we've made many kid's versions of The WW2 RAF jacket, so there's nothing really new about this jacket....... like the ones we made 30 years ago these too are exactly the same specification as Leslie Irvin original design ....... but in minature!
What is new is that we've given the patterns a thorough overhaul and we are offering these officially for the very first time. To make the most of the excess raw materials we'll be using for these, we are only offering the Late WW2 Multi Panel jacket, a recreation of the 1944-45 Irvin jacket made when raw material shortages were at their worst. Many feel this is the most stylish of all three versions of Leslie Irvin's legendary jacket.
Panel configuration of the Multi Panel jackets may vary slightly from one jacket to the next but the overall feel of a genuine RAF jacket from the mid 1940s will be faithfully replicated. Jacket in pictures is Seal Brown
We've found that the most reliable way to fit kids is by their height, our patterns are made to 3" height increments, with children growing so quickly we'd generally advise to get a jacket a wee bit on the large size but we are happy to advise.
All materials used on our Kid's range are regular Aero grade but to keep the prices as low as possible these jackets are made mainly of from odd skins and large off cuts. This means there might be occasional slight mismatching of shade or grain, or scarring on the skins
