I just found this :

Actually Aero did produce a few "Black Sheep" Irvin's for sale. One or two here purchased them.

Bit of a head's up

We are having a few Covid related delays in Sheepskin deliveries so in the meantime we are going through all the old skins, end of batches, some from way back, and making then into jackets. There's bound to be some real bargains amongst these when they are made, get in touch if you are looking for anything in particular

Even Better : We've unearthed enough Black Fleece Sheepskin for a few Irvins, these are being cut this week, again check for sizes, they are due on the machines sometime next week

Having been lucky enough to order a black sheepskin BoB Irvin from Aero when Ken posted they'd found some more fleece here's a pic of the fleece against the Late War Aero Irvin I picked up last year. As with that jacket the fleece is not too dense and is certainly more versatile over a longer season. Here's the fleece of these two side by side. For comparison the sofa is a bit bluer than this so I suspect the Late War model (light fleece) is a little washed out whilst you can see the texture in the dark fleece BoB which is certainly slightly darker in the flesh. This one is a very black fleece.
