This one from ASOS looks promising. Unfortunately with 350 pounds it's not exactly cheap.

like other posters in here, i also want to get a sheepskin aviator jacket but cant pay the burberry price point. i also dont want to go faux because...what is the point? im not buying it for trend but for actually keeping warm and looking "cool" at the same time. i want something that will last a long time, especially if i have to wear it during canadian winters.

so i did a little googling and found this english company that makes authentic Irvin RAF flying jackets(the original designer aviator jacket) lined fully in sheepskin. im pretty interested. they sell in women's sizes for around 400 pound which is not that bad considering it is hand crafted according to your measurements or by standard sizing.
the only thing im weary about is the bulk...
anyone here ever seen an Irvin jacket in person?

i know aviator jacket is sooo overrated right now but i just love thinking about how warm and cosy it would be to wear in the winter.

i love the asos style jacket but sold out of course.

found this sheepskin jacket made from an english sheepskin company called Farmer Lamb.
it looks alright, not as stylish as topshop's or asos's. but these are in production still, not to mention cheaper than both high street stores at £260. any thoughts?

farmerlamb.co.uk

i might still want to go for an authentic Irvin style jacket if it is not as bulky and the price is not double the farmer lamb's.

^I like that one much better than all the high street versions of the aviator jacket, actually. It looks really nice.

I've decided I'm not getting an aviator jacket this winter unless I find one that's an exact copy of the Burberry one :p

^it does doesnt it, at that price and the looks of it. im tempted.

but i also found this american company that makes a variation of a B-3 bomber. from the looks of the picture the sheepskin looks more luscious and more expensive at $522.
not to mention the shipping to uk would be frightening.

aviationsupermarket

actually so far my favorite style is this authentic WWII B-3 bomber from Eastman Leathers based in uk. but...it is for men's only! Balenciaga made an exact carbon copy of this style but for women, with just the arm patch and pocket in a lighter brown.

I'm really diggin' into aviator look lately, but unfortunately it's kinda too hot to wear those kind of jacket in my country (esp the shearling ones) and I'm in love with Burberry's jacket but it costs really expensive...
