This jacket is a first run test from a sewer working on learning the A-2 production trade. The jacket is made with a dense and grainy cowhide, and has correct components. The knits, thread, and label are Good Wear production material. The sewing is the one area that shows a learning curve, and future jackets will be an improvement. We don't plan on making Aero jackets for now, but will focus on the Cable Raincoat pattern. We only made two Aero test samples. The sewer has worked off-site but will be trained on-site in the near future.

The jacket is a correct size 48, based on original Aero jackets, and should fit someone who is about 6'2" plus, with a 45-47" chest. The pattern is a Good Wear pattern, based on an original Aero that was taken apart.

The jacket had some corrective sewing done, where the first stitch line around the collar, in the body as the rolled seam, from the wind flap, around the collar, and down the non-wind flap side of the body along the zipper. The first stitch holes can be seen in some areas, mostly down the zipper (note photo below). With dark leather, this is a bit harder to see. The zipper was shorter than what will go into producion jackets, so the lower waistband area of the jacket opens more than it should.
