This Model is known as The British Racer. This is our interpretation of a British MFG jacket that I was able to get my hands on that was owned by Steve Mcqueen. It was used in desert flat track racing and the original was beat to hell but damn did it look great. This is a 4 pocket design with an amazing fold over long collar. Shoulder gussets and no wind flap on this custom one. The fit has been mastered by Simmons Bilt by combining some original cafe racer patterns and finally coming to perfection with a jacket not tight but not too loose either. A fit someone who really rides will treasure.
it is a Lasting look that will never go out of style and is a True Heirloom jacket that can be handed down in the family.

Remember this is natural Horsehide, It will have imperfections and it will start to grain and crease with age. That is what makes it unique. Every jacket takes on its own life and will be unique to its owner.
Jacket is made by hand in Selkirk Scotland.

Unique items that you can hand down to your children and they will proudly use.

So do not hesitate to ask any questions, But remember the clothing and bags we sell are not meant to sit around and look pretty. They are made to wear and wear hard. You want that bag that looks aged and well worn. That is exactly what our bags are meant to do. Who wants a leather jacket that looks new... You want it to show the miles, to have already molded to your body shape and with the scratches and scuffs to show for it.
So we may not be for those dainty gentlemen that dont like to wrinkle their trousers..... Imagination, dreams and the desire to get out and see this world. That is what we are about. Live life.....
