Good to hear all’s well!
Looking forward to seeing the jackets when available.
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.
Pics or it never happened.
Hi Jay, how is the Situation? did you get new Zippers for your Goldsmith jackets?
Nope, still not seeing anything 3 1/3 months later. What am i missing ?
A jacket ????
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
ya mean like "limited edition" cars, when some thousands of them are made?.....and then some more, if they are big sellers.
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
Come in Jay.
Your jacket Goldsmith public need you !!!
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
I like that ethos, I like it a lot.
If you do that 1937 number, make sure it won't fit anyone without the correct prewar body type
Don't forget to make Aero 16160 please, it's my favorite Aero contract
