Aero Leather – Kolesch Leder forgotten Collaboration:

Recently I visited the Kolesch Tannery in Biberach which is the last remaining “altsämisch” Tannery in Europe. Please take the time to have a look at the video of master tanner Kolesch (speaking in Swabian).

The tour around the Tannery was very impressive, to see a such old craft still in practice. Here some images I took for a different project called Bodenseh-Kultur.

The altsämisch tanned buckskin by Kolesch is a real superior product used by Kolesch for their traditional cloth but also highly valued by others. But honestly I could not believe my eyes to see 8 Aeroleather Jackets in their showroom. Hardly there is a chance that there is someone walking in there to real value these jackets and buy one. So I promised Mrs. Kolesch to write a bit about those rare jackets which probably were made for the Japanese market my Aero out of Kolesch tanned leather. 

So If you are interested to buy one or all of them contact them.

Sizing and colors are:
2 x light brown 44 + 38
3 x dark brown 48 + 42 + 34
2 x dark grey 36 + 46
1 x black 36 (this one has a bit of different details)

During the last Bread & Butter fair, Holger Peckmann from Monomento – Hamburg tailored, took orders and showed some of his designs at Fein und Ripp Berlin. I saw one of his tweed vests in the shop and it took me a while to finally realize that the craftsman / tailor of this piece was just sitting in front of me. Holger uses mostly rare deadstock / vintage canvas or tweed for his jackets, vests or trousers. One of his latest designs you can see on the Fein & Ripp website or at his Tumblr Site www.TheRuggedGuys.com

I basically saved this pilot jacket some years ago to be thrown away. At this time I actually had no clue about it. This sheepskin jacket comes from my girlfriends family. Her grandfather a german pilot in WW2 probably traded it with an USAAF pilot (for his flight jacket?). It was a well kept secret be-cause my plan was to get it restored by Aeroleather (via Burkhard Plug – Gasoline Alley) and give it to my girlfriend Maria. The leather broke at the neck/colar for about 15 cm. Just last week I checked her size and the jacket is way too large for her.

So shall I put it on sale?
Get it restored and keep it for my unborn son or daughter?

With size 38 now way I will ever fit in, too bad! Probably the first time I wish I would be a bit smaller.

The Manufacturers Label says:

Type: B-3
DWG. NO. 33H5595
C. ORDER NO. 42-22899-P
Size 38

It´s an all time classic and it took me a while to get a not too overpriced one. This one should be from the 60th/70th. What I found out is that the age can be dated by the label and the lining, so if some expert has a hint I would glad. A label in the right inside pocket has the number 9037318 if it helps. At first glance i thought the lining at the cuffs was damaged. But at a closer look, it is just the way they attached the lining jacket to the outer denim jacket.
