- Named for the legendary Canadian/British aviation company, which produced warplanes from WWI on, the Avro is the most complex pattern in the Himel Bros. arsenal. This jacket’s design springs from two rich sources of history: Aviator’s jackets, and early D-pocket motorcycle jackets. Inspired by an early “Leather Togs” D-pocket jacket which David believes to be the “missing link”—the single jacket which arguably defined the modern motorcycle jacket—the Avro shows the best of Himel Bros. quality and attention to detail.
Features include the “D-pocket,” also commonly known as the “gun,” or “map,” pocket, a beautiful “Sunburst,” back, typical of early-1930s Canadian sport jackets, and a cool chinstrap tucked beneath the collar. See details for more.
