Double riders jacket with distinctive details
A double riders jacket made from horsehide, an indispensable material for flat head leather items. The biggest feature is the front part, which is made up of two layers.The overlapping of leather enhances wind resistance and is very useful when receiving wind such as motorcycles.The abdominal pocket, commonly known as the "D pocket," is also an impactful detail.
Aging over time called tea core
By dyeing the base once in brown and then dyeing the surface, you can enjoy the secular change called "tea core" in which the brown color of the base appears when the surface is rubbed after many years of wearing. Furthermore, a process called greasing, which adds abundant oil, is performed to give a moist texture. For greasing, we use a special oil developed by Flat Head. Since it is fragrance-free, it does not have a greasy odor or stickiness when worn.
Double collar with a strong presence
The collar shape that opens wide on both sides at the chest emphasizes the presence of double riders. When the zipper is tightened, two pieces of leather are piled up to prevent the intrusion of wind, and it also serves as a windbreaker when riding a motorcycle.
The abdomen has a large oval pocket. Although it is a characteristic detail, it is called a "D pocket" because of its shape similar to the letter D. When the zipper is lowered, the mouth opens wide, making it easy to put in and take out luggage even with gloves on.
All zippers use UNIVERSAL ZIPPER. A bell-shaped zipper is used for the front part and D pocket part. Not only is it strong and easy to use, but the brass-colored texture goes well with leather. The color gradually becomes dull, and as the leather ages, it changes to a tasteful atmosphere. Horse leather of the same material is attached to the pull tab, making it easy to open and close and accentuate the design.
Chain zipper (UNIVERSAL ZIPPER)
A diamond-shaped chain zipper is used for the left chest pocket.
Brass-colored iron buckle
Buckles are attached to both sides of the hem. You can adjust the hem width slightly if you like. It looks like brass, but the iron buckle is painted in brass color. It is also attractive that the paint is scraped off and the iron part can be seen when it is rubbed after wearing it for many years.
Rayon kersey is used for the lining. By using twill weave of rayon fiber, it is a fabric that has both the strength required for the lining and the good slipperiness. The luster and vivid colors peculiar to rayon also enhance the appeal of the leather jacket.
Action pleats are provided on the back for ease of movement of the shoulders and arms. The spread of the pleats allows you to move your shoulders and arms smoothly.
Epaulettes are attached to both shoulders. The studs decorated on the epaulettes are made of silver, and the color gradually darkens, and the texture increases as the rider's jacket ages.
