Can Aero make a black Irvin ?
Actually Aero did produce a few "Black Sheep" Irvin's for sale. One or two here purchased them.I just found this :
The wheels have been set in motion on this new project, we are having enough sheepskin tanned to do a small trial run of half a dozen or so, price will the same as or very close to our current RAF jacket. Book now :)www.vintageleatherjackets.org
We did make a few but these dropped off the radar due to excessive orders for all our other sheepskins, never did get listed on our siteCan Aero make a black Irvin ?
Bold contrasts...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.View attachment 53700
