Aero Leather Clothing

Aero 40-3785-P Type A-2

$ 925.00

This A-2 represents an interesting transition between the complex 1938 Aero A-2 and the much more common 1942 A-2 jacket. Gone is the complicated zip arrangement and extra top stitching unique to the 1938 Aero, yet the jacket still retains its high collar stand and offset collar.

The jacket has lost some of the body taper associated with the 1938 jacket, but still has the slim shoulders and sleeves. This makes the 40-3785-P neater fitting than the 1942 contract, though not as neat fitting as the 1938 A-2.

Obviously, with such a rare jacket there's no way Aero can lay their hands on a dozen or so to conduct the proper research into the contract. In fact, Aero can't even be sure whether this jacket was ever made in seal brown. However, Aero thinks the jacket is safe with a little artistic license and therefore offers the jacket in both russet and seal horsehide.

If you wish a deadstock wartime Talon on your purchase, please add this to your order at the time of purchase.

The 40-3785-P Type A-2 style can be specified in a variety of leathers, but Thurston Bros. recommends Vicenza Italian veg-tanned horsehide for this jacket. Click HERE for more information on ordering a custom Aero jacket!
