Nylon CHP jacket


This vintage motorcycle jacket was custom tailored by Lancer Leathers of Phoenix, Arizona. Going by the Lenzip zippers, I’d say it was made in the 1970s. It is the classic Columbia / CHP style, unchanged since the late 1940s. This one follows the pattern, with the concealed snaps in the collar and lapels, the zipped front pockets, the shourt length, zip cuffs, laced side panels, and kidney panel. This throws a nice twist on the design with its heavy nylon material. It has leather elbow reinforcement padds, and leather detailing on the cuff zippers and the laced panels. With the 48″ chest, I would recommend this jacket for either a size 44 or 46.

Chest (pit to pit): 24″ (doubled =48″)
Shoulder to Shoulder: 18″
Sleeve (shoulder to cuff): 23″
