Aero Open Day & Sale - August 17th 2019
Huge Showroom Sale!

We're constantly being asked if we'll ever have another open day, after the resounding success of our event back in 2016... good news is now is the time! We're happy to announce there'll be another Aero Open Day and sale in our factory in Galashiels on August 17th 2019 at 10am GMT.

We're preparing to launch our new website and have a general clear out of stock ahead of doing some improvements to our factory showroom, so there will be plenty of bargains up for grabs. Everything in the factory... jackets, knitwear, footwear, denim, vintage, the whole lot... will be on special offer to make it a worthwhile trip for those of you who can join us!

Minimum discount will be 20% off list price.


For those who cannot make it on Sat 17th August, we will have a one day online sale beginning at 10am GMT Monday 19th August on remaining goods.

Ill try and get up Ken ! About an hour or so drive up for me :)
You might well (probably will) find some original pieces of interest as we are domolishing our vintage display unit in the refurbishment, we need a changing room with so many ladies visiting and jeans and trousers being very popular. We'll probably have to re allocaste the office where a lot of the achive pieces are kept and turn it back into an office.......it's staggering how many non production staff are needed in these days of internet shopping, got to put them somewhere!!!!

Care to give us a little teaser on what’s going to be available and more importantly the sizes of those items?

Everything that is physically made will be on sale at a minimum of 20% off for the day, we've got to make room to work on the planned re-jigging of the showroom and offices
Check here to see some of the items http://instagr.am/p/B0dMjRQArMF/ If you see it there it's on sale plus more
In addition there will be a large number of overstock in certain sizes of items made outside the factory, headwear, knitwear, footwear, 501 jeans, 101J Jackets, etc. at 50% off
Ordering 6 months ahead means in most styles we've got overstocks in one or two sizes, these items will be 50% off purely to balance the stock figures, a couple of styles of boots for instance we've got 2 or 3 pairs in most sizes, then 8 in one size, no logic to it. The excess of these overstock sizes are the ones that will be 50% off.

Then there's the original Vintage, there fat too much of that, I saw at least a couple of original A-2s in the sale rack price too cheap.......in my opinion at least............other pieces being discovered on a daily basis

Also Holly has just posted this on FL...............

"We really appreciated the huge attendance at our 2016 Open Day, with so many visitors flying to Scotland plus a steady flow from South of the Border as well as all our locals. So, to show our appreciation for everyone making the trip to Galashiels we like to give something back for the effort, at the last show we put on live music courtesy of The Shivering Sheiks. However, having them play showed us we've not really got room for a band so instead at this sale there will be two prize draws going on during the Saturday, with several prizes in each, up to a Love Aero Bible and a Shackleton waistcoat."

Plenty reasons to head off to "God's Country" on the 17th :)

Now that's a closet!!
Oh how I'd like to be there for just an hour to walk thru that stockpile and try some jackets on.......I have a feeling I'd be maxing out some plastic at that place!;)

This made me very happy. I won't be able to make it to Scotland, but I'm hoping that the style I'm looking for, which I don’t think is one of the more popular styles, will still be available come the morning of August 19th.

Last on line sale was a bit chaotic at the start with new customers losing out on items they'd tried to buy because they hadn't registered as customers, during the few minutes that it took to register the piece they wanted got sold to someone else.
We'd advise any potential bidders to register as a customer before the day

Thanks for the tip, Ken! That had occurred to me as well. I’m glad I’m already registered as a customer!

Ken, any chance that there will be some of the longer jackets, like the Hudson, Northeaster or Barmstormer on sale? I’ll be making a bee-line for them on the website Monday morning, assuming they don’t get scooped up over the weekend.

There were a few longer jackets in stock when I was down last week, send me a reminder Friday week with your size and I'll keep an eye out for you over the weekend
Best use ken@aeroleatherclothing.com as I expect/hope :) I'll be too busy to be looking at social media
