Aero Original British Highwayman - The 59'er Jacket

645.00

As the Highwayman name is a registered trademark owned by Aero, they have made this proper replica of the original Rivetts jacket,  following the original 1950's british fit rather then the later americanised versions.

There were many subtle variations to the Rivetts version, rather that recreate any one particular example we put all the best features of the 50's originals together to produce the quintessential British Bike Jacket

This jacket uses only British tailoring techniques, we have chosen a soft but thick British Steerhide instead of the Lambskin used on most of the originals, the sheep leather had a rather limited lifespan, but that's about the only concession they've made.  

Comes with ball and chain zippers in the two side pockets and like most versions of the original they've used the same zippers in the cuffs. For a neater look these are fitted in the seam rather than in the more common position in middle of the top sleeve, also features pronged side buckles in an original 50's design, a proper recreation of the earliest of the original front zippers used by Rivetts which is top stitched in the old British style with the zipper teeth exposed and the classic double stitched collar with a sharp point.

The lining choice was easy, Royal Stewart tartan like the vast majority of the originals, available in a choice of 100% Cotton orLochcarron Pure Wool as an optional extra and set off with a recreation of the original label for authenticity.

The fit of the jacket, although similar to the Aero Highwayman, is based on the Rivetts jacket, it's about 1" shorter than our famous version and is slimmer at the waist.

Finally, to pay ho
