Classic Vintage Motorcycle Leather Jacket

The Men’s Classic Vintage Leather Jacket

has a deep richness because it has been treated with waxes and dyes in such a way that when the leather is pulled or stretched, the finish becomes lighter in the stretched areas, that gives an “Old World” effect or “Aged” look. The color returns when heat is applied or friction from rubbing a cloth or your hand in that area. This is considered a mark of high quality. Features: Action back, zippered cuffs, and three leather lined outside zippered pockets, snap-down collar, two internal pistol pockets (approx. 9″ deep) close with a snap on one side and the other with a zipper, removable full Thinsulate liner.

Top Grain


Top-Grain (Corrected Leather) is fuzzy on one side and smooth on the other. The smooth side is the side where the hair and natural grain used to be. Top grain leather has often been sanded to remove scars and then sprayed or pasted to “cover up” the work.

Thickness or Weight – Leather is usually measured in terms of ounces. One ounce equals 1/64th of an inch thickness. Thus, a weight of 7 to 8 oz. means the leather is 7/64th to 8/64th of an inch thickness. In an effort to make leather a uniform thickness, wet hides are run through a splitting machine. However, each animal is different and there is always a slight thickness variation throughout the hide. This is why leathers are usually shown with a range of thickness, such as, 4 to 5 oz., 6 to 7 oz., etc.

Poly Twill Liner

Poly Twill Fabrics are often used for sturdy work clothing or durable upholstery because of its strength and durability. Twill also recover from wrinkles better than plain-weave fabrics do. When there are fewer interlacing, yarns can be packed closer together to produce high-count fabrics. In twill and higher counts, the fabric is more durable and air- and water-resistant.

Thinsulate

Thinsulate is a trademark of the 3M Corporation, for a type of synthetic fiber thermal insulation used in clothing. The word is a portmanteau of thin and insulate. The material was first sold in 1979. Thinsulate fibers are about 15 micrometers in diameter, which is thinner than the polyester fibers normally used in insulation for clothing such as gloves or winter jackets. Advertising material for Thinsulate suggests that Thinsulate is more effective due to the increased density of fibers with decreased size of fibers compared with more traditional insulation. Like most insulation materials, the gaps between fibers not only reduce heat flow but also allow moisture to escape.
