The Nyla Long Custom

Adapted from an early 1950s women’s D pocket jacket, this jacket calls back the history of motorcycling when women would wear high-waisted leather pants and D pocket jackets and ride in post war bike clubs.  These iconic women were the inspiration of this classic design. The short version is true to the original pattern mimicking the short jacket with simple back, while the longer version has seams to allow for shaping of the waist and hips and a lower finish. Current jackets are finished with either Talon two way zippers or old stock Lightning zips.

Leather

Shinki Horsehide Medium Brown Pigment Finish

This is a pigment (paint) finished natural brown horsehide. The smell is the distinctive leathery smell of shinki mimosa tanned HH. The leather pigment finished with a medium hard pigment designed to wear over time and show the lighter teacore underneath. This gives the jacket a worn feeling that develops character over time. The leather feels heavier to the hand due to the weight of the drum dye and the oils and waxes embued in the top coat. The leather is typically 1.2 to 1.3 mm or (2.5 to 2.75 oz) and can come smooth or grainy. Like all vegetable tanned leather fully shrunken grains will pop up and create ripples over time especially after getting wet that will mould the jacket to the wearer and develop character.
