This jacket is an exact copy of an original Aero Leather Clothing Co. Type A-2 from WWII. This was Aero's last A-2 contract, and this contract had variation in several materials. Most of the jackets were made with russet colored leather, in either pigment finish or semi-aniline, though some had seal brown leather. The knits were usually brown, but the earliest jackets used remaining red knits from the previous 42-15142-P contract. Many jackets if this contract also had pocket body corners that are rounded, rather than the distinctive square corners known to Aero. But many were square, too. The most common zipper was Talon, but some had Kwik zippers.

This jacket will replace the Aero that had been on the site for the last seven years. We no longer offer that pigment Shinki horsehide, and our pattern is a little different (we've handled over ten original Aeros, and have taken apart one). This jacket is in brand new condition, and we believe is an excellent representation of this contract.

The Italian veg-tanned horsehide is beautiful, and has a classic shade of russet with subtle variation in color, and lots of natural grain. It will age just as originals, with high points and areas of friction fading to a lighter shade. We chose the red knits, as that's a classic Aero feature, but brown knits are correct as well. We offer repro Kwik zipper chains with vintage Kwik zipper sliders, along with the typical Talon variants.

This jacket will ideally fit a person who is 5'10" to 6'2", with a chest circumference of 42-44", and weight of 180-205 pounds.
