The Racer.

Everyone likes to give a brief history of the motorcycle jacket. Here’s mine:

  • —The Military (foreign and domestic)
  • —Brando
  • —The Cafe Racers

This is a reproduction of a classic European cafe racer that came out of England in the postwar '60s and '70s.

These guys scoffed at all the flappy collars and needless stuff the Brando leathers made so famous. Being pragmatic chaps, they figured a bit of extra padding on the shoulders, elbows and forearms was a more practical addition (if you’re going to “ton-up” you need the padding).

Then they did something even more rebellious than Brando ever did; they decided that not all motorcycle jackets need to be black. Color, so it seemed, makes the world a lot more interesting.

The Cafe Racer (No. 5166). 100% buffalo skin. Single needle topstitching at all seams. Fully lined in dark brown taffeta. Stand collar with adjustable snap closure at front tab. Full zip front with exposed antique brass metal zipper. Quilted leather patches with padding at shoulder, upper sleeve, and elbow/forearm. Exposed 5" metal zipper with gusset under sleeves. Angled besom zip pockets at front chest with leather pull tab. Banded bottom hem is wider at center back than front. Two interior welt pockets with snap closure (one at each chest). Two adjustable tabs with metal buckle at bottom band extending from side seams toward back. Center back seam. Imported.

Men’s sizes: S, M, L, XL, XXL.
