Aero Leather Clothing
After introducing the 1930s Half Belt back in the 1990s, Aero has often been asked for longer versions of the half belt design. Although Aero can add length to most of their styles, they always felt the best way to make a longer jacket in a slimmer 1930s style was to design a jacket specifically with the extra length that seems to be popular with many customers.
Aero took their original patterns, narrowed the collar slightly, recut the upper body and sleeves, removed the pleats at the waist, and re-positioned the back half belt to the optimum position for the length and to reflect the longer versions that started to appear in the late 1930s. Aero has narrowed the sleeve slightly and reshaped the button cuff. The result of these tweaks is a very stylish but simple jacket, that's reminiscent of the late 1930s and ideal for everyday wear. Button cuffs are lined with corduroy.
For those who prefer a more elaborate design, Aero has taken this beautifully fitting pattern and made some changes to the panel configuration, which results in a very different looking jacket--The Wayfarer.
