+4 Four Seater
I 'borrowed' it from Morgan for a couple of weeks of adventure over Easter
The Ventile Aircraft is a "Reglan" sleeve and they run large through chest etc. Have one in the 50 and could have sized down to a 48.
Its a great jacket, very light weight and breathable/windproof etc.
I like it better then the light weight "Veilance" shell I have......
Based on your chest I would guess you could size down in the Aircraft. Personally I don't size up or down. It's either get my size or pass. Just keep in mind the Aircraft is meant to fit as it does and it tapers down to the waist.
As for the color, I'd say it's a medium orange. I wouldn't say burnt, I wouldn't say bright. I'd say a rich medium orange. It's a great looking jacket.
I think you have named the two most 'off' sized Cabourn jackets, I take a 50 in the Cameraman, Mallory, Rangoon etc. and they all fit perfectly but my Surface in a 50 was tight across the chest and my Aircraft in 48 fits perfectly.
Thanks so much for your replies. Its a massive help. I’m now on the hunt the Aircraft Jacket knowing what I need to know. Sizing is a conundrum sometimes, still, thats what makes NC so fun, thanks all
