THE D-POCKET HORSEHIDE MOTORCYCLE JACKET GETS ITS INSPIRATION FROM AMERICAN & EUROPEAN VINTAGE LEATHER JACKETS OF THE 1940's TO 1950's. THIS ERA WAS THE GENESIS OF THE MOTORCYCLE JACKET.
Large and distinctive “pointed” D-pocket, scalloped change pocket, two exterior buttoned side pockets, and inside button pocket to keep plenty of gear while on the road.
The dual cinch side belts and zippered sleeves to keep out drafts.
Heavy duty vintage style zippers: Smooth action vintage style chain pocket zipper, heavy gage curving front zipper, and the distinctive sleeve zippers can all be easily gripped and zipped even while wearing riding gloves.
Genuine premium buffalo horn buttons like those used in the past.
Your choice of premium 100% worsted wool or cotton lining in the body, high quality satin in the sleeves, and heavy duty pocket linings.
Leather facings on wear areas such as the inside armpits and leather kidney panel Underarm vents for comfort Dual back pleats for ease of movement.
The fit of the jacket is very distinctive and stays true to vintage styling It slopes slightly to the front (longer in the front than the back).
The shoulders are square and neat fitting (no saggy drop shoulders).

Tapered waist (which can be further adjusted with the side cinch belts).
