Product Description

Based on the original Irvin Flying Jacket, Aviation Leathercraft are proud to add the Irvin Gilet to their range. An Irvin label within each Gilet confirms its authenticity.

Of course, the Irvin Gilet is practical: it’s made from the same first-rate, hard-wearing materials as the Original Irvin Jacket and it’s made with the same pedantic attention to detail. The Irvin Gilet will last you virtually forever, just like all the items in the Irvin range. 

All sheepskin garments with a 'leather look' have a sprayed on finish. This is true of every brand available on the market, and the finish will wear to a suede-like appearance over time. This finish is colourfast under normal circumstances. However, certain solvents on hands or surfaces can slightly damage the dark brown finish in a way that the colour could run. These solvents include: Leather seat treatments, hand creams, perfumes, petrol, oils, etc. Seat belts can also 'rub' the surface causing a mark.

This jacket includes the exclusive Irvin label.

Product Specification

Care of your Sheepskin Jacket
All sheepskin garments with a 'leather look' have a sprayed on finish. This is true of every brand available on the market, and the finish will wear to a suede-like appearance over time. This finish is colourfast under normal circumstances. However, certain solvents on hands or surfaces can slightly damage the dark brown finish in a way that the colour could run. These solvents include: Leather seat treatments, hand creams, perfumes, petrol, oils, etc. Seat belts can also 'rub' the surface causing a mark, over time.

DO NOT Dry Clean, you will need to find a specialist sheepskin cleaner to clean your item. For small areas and patch cleaning, use a very dilute baby shampoo sparingly over the 'wool' area and allow to dry naturally. Once dry you can carefully tease out the wool with a pet comb (do not touch the 'leather-like' surface as this will scratch). For the surface of the jacket use a wax based leather food very sparingly and gently wipe over. DO NOT USE a chemical/solvent leather cleaner or saddle soap as the outer surface is NOT leather. Store out of direct sunlight and away from a heat source. Do not store in polythene.

Top quality, supple sheepskin with long rugged wool, prepared especially for Aviation Leathercraft, for the production of Irvin flying jackets.
