Aljac leather cafe racer

I love a jacket with a good patina. It has a story.  It’s been places and seen things.  There’s a romance to it, an air of mystery and of the unknown. A jacket with a patina like this was not a casual fashion item, worn for a season and discarded.  No, to get this kind of wear, it had to be something that defined its owner.

This vintage leather cafe racer jacket was made in Montreal, Canada in the 1970s.  Its brown leather has a killer patina, and is still soft and supple.  It has a lightning zip, cigarette pocket on the sleeve, and side adjuster snaps.Chest: 20″Shoulder to Shoulder: 17″Sleeve (shoulder to cuff)” 23″    Photobucket
