The Cafe Racer

Jacket pictured is Light Brown Cowhide with a zip-out quilted grey lining and gunmetal zippers. Jacket features wide collar, two zippered hand pockets, two assymetrical zippered chest pockets, and button snaps along the main zipper.

FULL GRAIN LEATHER | All jackets are made with the best quality Grade A Full Grain 100% leather.

TWO INTERIOR POCKETS | All jackets come with two sizeable interior pockets, one zipped, one slip.

ALL METAL HARDWARE | We only use highly durable YKK brand hardware (zippers, studs and snaps) made with stainless steel.

LINING CHOICES | Our base lining choices are 100% polyester for durability, ease of wear and the number of colors available. We also offer high-end cupro/rayon in black which is incredibly soft, and breathes nicely.

STITCHING QUALITY | We only use Bonded Nylon 6-6 #92 in our jackets. It won't degrade or fray over time like most cotton threads used today.

Quality Craftsmanship Takes Time

All of our leather jackets are bespoke/made-to-measure. This means that the moment you order your jacket, we begin work on acquiring the leather, the hardware, the lining, etc. 

Next we will send you an e-mail with our easy to follow measurement guide and will walk you through the process along the way. We've made hundreds of jackets - we'll doublecheck and work with you to get it right.

The last step of the process is to be patient! It will take roughly 6-8 weeks to produce your jacket + shipping travel time. US free shipping is 2-3 days, international free shipping can take up to 1-2 weeks depending on customs.

Free Shipping, Anywhere, Anytime

That's right: All of our leather jackets come with 100% free shipping worldwide, anywhere, anytime. USPS priority mail takes 2-3 days domestically, and 1-2 weeks internationally (depending on location and customs).

Your Jacket, Guaranteed Forever

We have been ripped off by cheap fashion for too long. So we’ve built something that lasts a lifetime, and we stand by that statement with our lifetime warranty.

We offer a lifetime warranty on our products that covers materials and manufacturing defects.

Incase of goods with manufacturing defects we will either fix the item for you, replace it or pay for the costs for getting it fixed. If a repair is not possible we will give you store credit against it. We will not charge any labor or cost of parts. Please note that the shipping to our repair shop will be paid by the customer.

STILL HAVE questions?



The term Café Racer was created as the riders were only pretending to be racers as, instead of using their modified bikes, they just parked them outside cafes to show off. It may also be part of motorcycle folklore too, but it is rumored that these riders would apparently select a record on a café’s jukebox and then race each other to a predetermined place, with the objective of getting back before the record finished. This would then prove their bike was capable of hitting 100 mph. Fundamentally a Café Racer had to be light and powerful and able to achieve 100 mph. They often looked like stripped-down racers with anything that was considered superfluous or unnecessary or heavy taken off the bike.
