Modern Fit

The Original Jacket is tailored to fit with just enough room for layers while remaining streamlined.


Don’t toss the hangtag, it’s also a hair elastic.

Motorcycle jackets aren’t designed to look cool. They look cool because they were designed to do cool shit—worn by the riders, rebels, and risk-takers we love for what they do, not just for what they wear. The Original Jacket streamlines classic details and features into a minimalist silhouette that’s equal parts attitude and protection, fashion and function—and 100% handcrafted at Vanson, from the leather hide right down to the last zipper. Between the iconic aesthetic and lifetime-lasting quality, this is pretty much the only jacket you'll ever need to buy again.

Made in the USA in partnership with Vanson Leathers. The Original Jacket is backed by Vanson's 1 year warranty.
