When we were selected to become a Flat Head stockist, I immediately knew we'd at some point introduce their iconic horsehide motorcycle jacket. For lack of better words, it's one of the most exquisitely made single items I've ever seen/ touched/ put on my body. Definitely chock-full of authentic reproduction details, but updated in a modern slim fit. Without a doubt, this is an heirloom investment piece. Model is 5'8", 140 lbs. and wearing size 38.
-Made of 1.3mm thick horsehide from Japan's Shinki Tannery
-Horsehide is vegetable based dye tanned
-Semi-aniline finish, a process that retains natural characteristics of the horsehide and makes it more durable by combining dye and pigments
-Soft sateen lining throughout body & sleeves
-Flat Head produced & branded brass zippers and nickel snaps
-100% iron, Flat Head branded 'Uchi-Nuki' buckle (meaning "hit and go" because it fastens quickly)
-Asymmetrical motorcycle silhouette w/ side cinch buckles, gusseted shoulders, front D-pocket w/ zippered side & chest pockets and interior chest pocket, epaulets at shoulders
-Model no. WRJ-53A
Fit is slim/ tailored and runs true to size. We recommend true to size for a very slim fit or one size up if you intend to layer underneath. See measurements below or email firstname.lastname@example.org for sizing help.
