    As in finding out the year they were made!
    I have this jacket coming .. hopefully.. and without being able to get hold of any further information I'm wondering if anyone could, from the lining perhaps, approximate the date. This may be an impossible task.. but... I thought I'd give it a shot.
    It looks to me like this lining is no longer available with Aero from their site.
    Thanks

    Regret that I cannot see any image.Was it the Highwayman you posted earlier?In any case it would be very difficult to age unless the vendor supplies the original invoice/packing slip.It may still have the makers tag in it which will have the date on it.These are normally sewn into a pocket lining seam.

    Aero will tell you. It looks recent to me - less than 10 years.

    Yes sorry, I've been having to use a different host than normal.

    That’s a fairly current label. Maybe late-2000s?

    I think it's a fairly new jacket, maybe less than 4 years old. It could be older than that. Aero could tell you more definitively. I believe they do have other tartan linings available beyond what they have photographed on their website, but you have to write and ask to find out what they are. It just depends on what they have in stock at the time.
