Aero Leather - Highwayman Jacket. 100% Front Quarter Horsehide Leather - Incredible quality leather - thick, heavyweight and supple (A quick note on Horsehide leather and the inside label, there are only 3 areas of the horsehide that are of any use and the only part that is actually usable for being made into jackets and coats is the Front Quarter, so although this doesn't say FQHH like some other inside Aero labels, it is FQHH).
100% Black Alpaca Wool lining - Super soft to the touch. 2 Front diagonal pockets and 1 Zipped Chest pocket. An absolute beast of a jacket, exceptional quality leather and construction, should last a lifetime.
Daniel Craig has been pictured numerous times wearing this exact Aero Highwayman model. There is some general usage wear here and there, mainly on the edges (see last pics) but as with any leather jacket it only ever really adds to the charm (Any leather cream will help freshen it up and preventing it from drying out and cracking if you wanted to get the most life out of a jacket like this). 42 UK 52 EU - fairly fitted, will break in and mould to your body shape over time. Fine for a 40 if you want a bit more of relaxed fit. Pit to Pit - 24.5 inches.

Aero's most famous jacket, designed in 1983 as an "Americanised" homage to the British 1950s "Rocker's" jacket. In 1983, two years after the embryonic "Aero Leather Clothing" had been born under the wing of The Thrift Shop it was decided that the time had come to introduce a new jacket.. The demand for the few reproduction A-2s that had been produced since 1981 suggested there was a market for recreations of vintage jackets, especially as the prices of originals had soared over the previous few years. After around half a dozen prototypes each one improving on the previous version we arrived at the exact design that has now remained unchanged for almost 40 years. While the very first Aero Highwayman looked like an American made version of the Rivetts' jacket, by the sixth one made the jacket had become The Highwayman that it is now known and loved all over The World. The early jackets were all made in Connolly Hide but in 1986 all was to change forever when we added Horsehide to our range of leathers. Fast forward to 2013, to mark the 30th Anniversary of the birth of The Highwayman we added a recreation of the original Rivetts jacket the range, using only British manufacturing techniques, original patterns and materials to produce the quintessential 1950s British Bike Jacket. The choice of name for this unique version, "The 59'er Highwayman", pays homage to the "59 Club" members for whom a Highwayman was virtually de rigueur and, I suppose, 1959 was probably the heyday of this style Highwayman. Comparing the two versions side by side one can see how far the design evolved.
