For 2017 we've reintroduced our classic 1940s Raglan Sleeve Letterman's Jacket, the classic post WW2 Wool & Horsehide Baseball Jacket available in three base wool colours, Blue, Bottle Green and Black.
Not in our range since the late 1990's, we have been inundated with requests to remake this Aero classic. Each jacket is hand cut from heavy duty 21oz Melton Wool and fitted with single width Pure Wool striped ribbed jersey which is far more typical of the era than the usual double thickness jersey that is de rigueur these days. The jacket is fully lined in thick cotton drill.
The Shawl Collar too, is unique to the era while the stylish raglan Horsehide leather sleeve, again typical of the 1940s, is very rare in modern reproductions, as are the period correct double folded cuffs. All in all we've recreated a true classic from the 1940s withouit even the merest hint of compromise and, of course, we've used contrasting colour studs.
We have a small number of vintage chenille patches are also available, these are mostly Canadian made and date from the 1960s to 1980s but are identical in style to those from the 1940s please ask for further information.
Standard size range is 34" to 48" inclusive, other sizes are available by special order
