This jacket is a production by Diamond Clothing Co., working in partnership with Good Wear to create a series of stock-sized jackets of several patterns. We are close to offering product, and this is one test model ready to wear. David is using our Acme pattern and the same materials that we use. The jacket is brand new, and has unique leather. David started with russet steer and applied a hand rub of dyes, followed by a pigment, as well as a clear finish. Lastly, a "Combat Crew" process which has caused a fade on high points and areas of friction, revealing the russet shade below.

Many original Aeros had leather colorized in this manner. Over time, a shiny russet shows through, of a reddish tone, and the color combination is superb. This jacket will do the same, as it has been colored the same way. Just wear the jacket, and watch the lighter tone come through. We have done this before with results that look great.

The jacket is well made, as the photos show, and our pattern can be seen compared with an original Aero 21996. As the original contract would have, the knits are brick-red, and most of the jackets of this contract were made with light OD green thread, as is this one.

This jacket would ideally fit someone who is around 5'11" to 6'2", and have a chest that is between 43-44". The jacket is quite comfortable. The leather is heavy, but soft, so stiffness is not an issue. The grain will only get better with time in the jacket.

Please let us know your dimensions (height, weight, and chest circumference), and we will know how well this one should fit.
