The unmistakable clean lines of a classic '50s-style café racer jacket. Worn by Enfield, BSA, Triumph, Harley and CB 400 Four riders alike.

Good for a night out with friends, too.  Beautifully cut with a huge one piece back – no seams, no tiny little  pieces puzzled together to save leather. Big generous front panels too. This jacket is cut and built in the old way, which would be called uneconomic today,
but we call No Compromises. Full-size 2” wide half belts sewn into the side seams, with a big polished nickel-plated solid brass buckle to keep the waist snug.  Available in both competition-weight and medium-weight cowhide. With zippered hand pockets, a zippered glove pocket, even a snap-close cigarette/ cellphone pocket, and classic chrome hardware throughout. Hand built in America. Destined to become a prized heirloom. In a word, Thunderbird!

ARMY weight 1010 (10 oz.) OLIVE GREEN Waxed Cotton
10.10 oz. Army Duck is woven and finished in the USA and
so is 100% Made-In-USA. The name Duck is the anglicised
version of the Dutch word Doek - which means cloth. This
material features equal warp and fill threads in the weave
which results in a very tight strong and durable fabric
with both breathability and water repellency. Strength and
water resistance are enhanced by the wax finish.
.
Wax cotton can be reconditioned and re-proofed using the
Vanson wax sold separately. Use a hair dryer to heat the
area of the garment needing wax work the wax paste into
the Duck using a dry cloth and a circular motion.
.
Note: Do not wash or dry-clean wax cotton as it will
lose the wax impregnation and finish. To clean wax
cotton hose off with cool water only.

STEER-XL BLACK WAXON 1.2 mm ( 3 OZ. )
Using recipes from before WW2 we use specially formulated
hot wax applied by hand to recreate the look and feel of
traditional leathers such as horsehide and waxed vegetable
-tanned steerhide. The underlying beauty of the leather
comes through as the leather is flexed and worn. This is
a living material that changes with use and time all the
while gaining a fine patina from use.
