Hercules was a workwear and high-end menswear line by the catalogue and department store Sears. The Hercules brand is always very in demand,
The jacket is made from 100% cowhide and is based on the 1940s WW2 A2 flying jacket, this one has a more of a motorbike look to it than other civilian models of military wear. The lining is a red coloured quilt with YKK zip and two lower external patch pockets.
Condition of external shell is overall good, the leather has minimal stiffness to arms, but we at Rokit have conditioned the leather so starting to soften nicely. There are some scuffs and marks which are featured in photo
The lining has wear marks to inside of lower collar and a few holes starting to appear in same area.
Leather jackets have always been the embodiment of the word “cool”. Never has a garment ever allowed itself to be used, abused and taken in by such a varied patronage that ranges from the upright tiers to the downright anarchic of society throughout the ages. Aviators, Punks, Fighter Pilots, Rockabilly’s, Mod’s, greasers…right up to the point where even imitation leather is produced for a cheaper or more ethically minded wearer.
The golden age of the leather jacket, losing it shackles and becoming a de facto style icon was the 1930’s and 1950’s. From the average Joe in depression ear America to the Norton riding Ton Up boys in the 50’s, the leather jacket firmly nailed itself into the hallowed book of style.
Rokit are hugely excited to be able to offer a choice selection that defines this period, specially curated and handpicked, we have a cross section of styles, designs and conditions- because, as we all know sometimes the best leather jacket is the most beat up leather jacket.
