    Just got my 31-800P A-1 from Jay. Over the moon with the fit, feel and look. Even put it over a bulky sweater at 32°F and it was comfy and practical. Pix to come.

    Nah, he's not in the market for one, so it doesn't matter.

    Jay, if you are there, the Aero 25 are long since sold out, and we've have turned down at least half a dozen requests to make a 26th jacket, you need to get your act together, there's a market out there needs filling

    Hi Ken, what a pity that Aero Leather won't produce A-2 Goldsmith any more. Actually I would like to one 40R Goldsmith with 25" Back length just like most of regular wartime A-2 jackets

    There's nothing I hate more than a company producing a Limited Edition product, then a few months/years the exact product is offered again, that's not for Aero

    They just change the name of the limited edition.

    A new set could have some tweaks based on any further evidence and/or fitness issue improvements and called the Goldsmith Restoration Limited Edition

    Surely Ken, if you have sufficient numbers wouldn't it be worth a '2nd edition'? I'm assuming you probably numbered the first batch so it wouldn't devalue them - bit like an E-Type continuation but much less time between productions!

    We'd be better adding the Aero contracts that we've not done so far.
    We said 25 for a reason, sure we could probably sell 50 ++ but there's more to life than hard cash

    I believe the total number should always be stated upfront on all Limited Edition
    I think we've done three previously to the Goldsmith, two jackets, the 25th Anniversary Highwayman was 500 pieces, I forget the second it was a long time ago and a very small number and more recently a 100 piece LE of one of our Fair Isle Sweaters

    If you do that 1937 number, make sure it won't fit anyone without the correct prewar body type ;)
