Aero Leather Clothing
The Aero August is based on the earliest examples of the half belt style, but gives a slightly slimmer fit. Aero added shoulder pads to the August for that classic early 30s profile and reworked the panel configuration. The collar is smaller and has a more pointed profile, similar to the new Premier 1930s Half Belt collar. The back of the jacket retains the classic half belt layout. Aero has cut the August with a high, shallow yoke above a vertical bi-swing upper back, while the classic false belt, side cinch adjusters, and lower skirt panel are retained. The side pocket angle isn't as steep and the breast pocket has been taken off for a cleaner look. The sleeves have been slimmed down slightly and the cuff has an early style strap and button, which can be adjusted for wind resistance.
When creating this jacket, the brief that Aero's design team had from the Aero sales manager was to produce a 1930s lightweight leather jacket that would be equally well suited to a lady as it would be to a gentleman, hence the slimmer cut and shoulder pads. As Aero set out to make a summer jacket, the name "AUGUST" immediately sprung to mind, especially once Aero checked the English Dictionary's definition of the word: 'inspiring reverence or admiration, of supreme dignity or grandeur, majestic, venerable or eminent.'
The August can be specified in a variety of leathers, including Chromexcel steerhide, Chromexcel front quarter horsehide or Italian Vicenza veg-tanned horsehide. Thurston Bros.' Aero August has nickel side buckles and a lightweight wool lining.
Like all Aero jackets, the August can be ordered with a variety of linings, hardware finishes/styles, and thread colors. Interior pockets are also available. Click HERE for more information on ordering a custom Aero jacket!
