Aero 38-1711-P Type A-2

*SEE BELOW FOR STOCK SIZES AVAILABLE FOR IMMEDIATE DELIVERY*

The Aero Leather Clothing Company are proud to offer our prestigious recreation of the 1938 Aero Type A-2, contract number 38-1711-P cut from patterns developed from the original patterns used in 1938.

The 1938 Aero A-2 has many features not found on the later wartime A-2 jackets, the zip fitting for instance is a complex system with the left hand side of the zipper fitted between two slim leather facings which protects the lining from being caught in the zipper. The jacket has the earlier offset collar design set into to a slim leather collar stand dropped my most manufacturers, including Aero, on their WW2 jackets. The fit is slimmer than all later jackets with a tapered body, slim shoulder and sleeves.

Our standard verson is fitted with a alloy "Hookless Talon" Grommit zipper as standard, anyone preferring a simpler, but non original to the contract, Japanese made triple marked Talon zipper can add this option to the shopping cart, but either zipper is fitted with the unique rivets at the bottom for extra strength.

Like all jackets from this contract, our version has a nipple stud snap down flapped patch pockets, although these are slightly smaller than later versions, a shirt-style snap-down collar with collar stand and unusual semi blind neck hooks which, again, were standard to the 1938 pattern Aero A-2, the correct profile epaulettes , knitted wool cuffs and waistband, a back constructed from a single piece of leather to limit stress on the garment, The jacket is fitted with a pure Cotton lining and finished off with extra top stitching around the bottom of the jacket and cuffs, a feature that is unique to the 1938 Aero.

Standard size range is 34" to 48" inclusive, other sizes are available by special order
