Extremely tough and highly abrasion resistant with waterproof qualities.
An ideal leather for motorcycle and outdoor use. Comfortable while giving adequate protection.
The most noble of leathers among experts and collectors.
There are only a few tanneries in the world that use old school techniques to produce it.
Premium leather which will soften with age but will not lose its shape.
Acquires a warm vintage patina and rugged grain as it molds to the wearer's body.
We use a premium grade of front quarter Horsehide leather which is 1.4mm thick and 3.5 ounce.
Our horsehide should not be confused with the chrome tanned "shoe leather" horsehide others are using that is more befitting footwear and leather goods as opposed to fine outerwear.
Ourextremely high quality horsehide is garment grade, combination tanned, aniline dyed, natural full grain
Combination tanned means that the hides are chrome tanned, then vegetable re-tanned using plant based resins in order to have the best of both worlds; superior water repellent qualities, a soft hand, and beautiful grain.
Our leather is in a class all its own.
The Dark Antique Brown has to be seen to be appreciated. It has a richness and depth that is second to none. The topcoat is a "satin" finish meaning its not too shiny nor too mat. The topcoat will wear with age which will give the leather a lovely patina. This is not the the run of the mill "Seal Brown" leather used by so many. It has character, elegance, and vintage charm all rolled up into one. The color is close to a tasty milk chocolate with subtle nuances and variations in the color. No need for the Sepia mode on this one ;-)
For the Vintage Black we use a satin black top coat that's not too dull and not too shiny. This topcoat will wear with age which will give the leather a lovely patina. The Vintage Black is an elegant leather that can be dressed up or dressed down with just a touch of the "bad boy" look. This is the classic color for a leather jacket. You can't go wrong with vintage black and it never goes out of style.
On a new jacket, the leather tends to be a bit stiff and the jacket will feel tight at first but will soften with use and mold to the wearer's body becoming more comfortable.
Please wear the jacket gently at first and avoid going through the full range of movements immediately (stretching arms out, etc.).
This will avoid damaging the seams and will ultimately make your jacket last longer. The reason is that the leather fibers need to stretch and break in a bit to flex and give correctly at the stress points.
No leather care products are necessary for our jackets. The leather is very robust and will last a lifetime.
By following these simple guidelines the legendary qualities of this leather will show through with time
