jacket2

THE LOOK has been granted first look at this rock fashion classic: a 50s black leather motorcycle jacket which is being put up for sale by the owner, who purchased it from a thrift store on The Bowery in 1975.

The jacket is in remarkable condition considering that it has been on the road and around the world in the last three-and-a-half decades.

It was also worn for its purpose; the owner ran a Harley for a number of years.

The belt is retained with a screw in the back panel. Details include epaulettes with star-shaped studs, shoulder vents and zips on each sleeve cuff.
