The highest quality materials have been used throughout. The quality sheepskin is matched to samples from an original flying jacket for colour authenticity, and is tanned using traditional methods.

 

The nickel-coated brass belt buckle has been cast using a mould from an original buckle, and the zips are reproductions of the ‘Lightning’ brand of zips found on many wartime RAF jackets.

 

The jackets are patterned either on the early-war RAF jacket, which has a two-piece front and two-piece back, or on the 1941/42 jacket which tends to have horizontal seams across the front and back panels.

 

The Aces High mission is to make the most accurate reproduction WW2 RAF flying jackets available. The feedback and response from the vintage leather jacket and WW2 re-enacting communities has been very positive. Here are a few comments about Aces High jackets from www.vintageleatherjackets.org:

That looks brilliant. Top drawer stuff! IMHO, that looks better
than any other repro Irvin I’ve seen.
It is so much better looking than any other repros I have seen.
The fleece is spot on with character and depth.
