“I Like Ike”  -  that was Dwight D. Eisenhower's campaign slogan for 1956, in an election that also gave us Richard Milhouse Nixon as vice-president.

In the years after WW2 Eisenhower-cut jackets were all the rage. Reminiscent of the short no-nonsense campaign jacket worn by General Eisenhower, the IKE has a military look with its shirt-style collar and bomber-style cargo and hand pockets built into the front. Inside are both an interior open-lining pocket and a zip-close wallet pocket anchored to an inside-facing, comfortable rayon lining. Wrist zippers and adjustable side-buckles keep the fit snug and tapered. All the hardware is solid brass. Confident, legendary, sleek and dependable…the VANSON IKE jacket is vintage 1956.

As a long term rider and the owner of American Iron Magazine, the world's best selling Harley magazine, I get to test a lot of great riding gear.

One of my favorite leather jackets of all time is the Vanson Ike jacket I wore while riding my 1915 Harley across the US on the first Motorcycle Cannonball endurance ride. Stylish, well made and functional. What else could you ask for in a great leather jacket? Thanks Vanson for maintain high standards in your designs and manufacturing.
