The Flat Head

Horsehide Asymmetrical Moto Jacket


When we were selected to become a Flat Head stockist, I immediately knew we'd at some point introduce their iconic horsehide motorcycle jacket.  For lack of better words, it's one of the most exquisitely made single items I've ever seen/ touched/ put on my body.  Definitely chock-full of authentic reproduction details, but updated in a modern slim fit.  Without a doubt, this is an heirloom investment piece.  Model is 5'8", 140 lbs. and wearing size 38.  


-Made of 1.3mm thick horsehide from Japan's Shinki Tannery

-Horsehide is vegetable based dye tanned 

-Semi-aniline finish, a process that retains natural characteristics of the horsehide and makes it more durable by combining dye and pigments

-Soft sateen lining throughout body & sleeves

-Flat Head produced & branded brass zippers and nickel snaps

-100% iron, Flat Head branded 'Uchi-Nuki' buckle (meaning "hit and go" because it fastens quickly)

-Asymmetrical motorcycle silhouette w/ side cinch buckles, gusseted shoulders, front D-pocket w/ zippered side & chest pockets and interior chest pocket, epaulets at shoulders

-Model no. WRJ-53A
