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.
Great 1950's jacket from Sportjac
1950’s Leather Horsehide SportJac Biker Jacket
is very reminiscent of the 1940’s French leather cycle and motorbike jackets which were in turn copied by the German Luftwaffe.
The jacket is very good condition, with the horsehide nicely broken in, as it should be after 60 odd years.
No rips or damage to external shell
Lining has holing but is mostly complete
