1932 Roadster Jacket Moleskin chocolate brown
The classic roadster jacket evolved out of neccessity. In the 1930 and 40s when motorcycling was more the means of a transportation instead of a hobby, riders needed to have certain features on their riding garments. Jackets had to offer protection, look smart and give the wearer room for movement. Therefore most classic roadster jacket from that time were rather slim in the silhoutte.
The Pike Brothers 1932 Roadster Jacket has its origins in that time. It is made of moleskin, also called „english leather“, which is made of heavy one sided brushed cotton sateen.
Moleskin is typical fabric used in workwear, since it is very durable. The warp is usaually made of twisted heavy yarn, while the weft is made of a softer yarn. After weaving the left side of the fabric is brushed, giving it a soft touch, reminiscent of suede.
It has a slim fit, an action back and adjustable waist bands. One inner pocket and three outer pockets offer enough storage for the daily necessities.
