Jacket Satin Lining
The sleeve lining used in the majority of our jackets is the only lining fabric approved by the UK Ministry of Defence (MOD) to be utilised by approved military tailors in the production of uniforms, mess kits and ceremonial wear for the Defence Forces. HM The Queens’ household cavalry also use this lining in their jackets.
The British Army, Navy and RAF (Royal Air Force) use all five approved military colours, Cream, Red, Khaki, Black and RAF Navy. Meanwhile, Brown and Gold, were specially developed several years ago for a leading gun and rifle maker for their hunting and shooting wear.
Lewis Leathers, by using this 100% Viscose rayon fabric for their high-quality jackets continue to use a strong and durable lining that is highly regarded by the traditional tailors in Savile Row, London.
-These linings are only available as sleeve linings for our leather jackets with the exception of the Edgbaston Jacket and Western jacket when selected in light weight suede, in this case, both body and sleeves can be lined in this fabric. It is not suitable for heavier leathers.
– There is no surcharge for the satin sleeve lining option.
