Our cutters feel that our King Of The Road Biker's jacket has the ideal panel set up for a two-tone, we are inclined to agree having seen the results.
When we designed this jacket back in the 1990's we took all the best features from the classic angle-zip bike jackets of the periods between 1946 and 1960 and put them together to make the perfect 50's style bike jacket.
The left front features a sweeping D pocket with puller-zip, and curved patch pocket, while on the left-hand side we've fitted a zipped hand warmer pocket. The side panels had zip entry pillion passenger pockets, a feature of some of the finest jackets of the period where a zip opening in the side panel allowed a passenger to put their hands inside the riders jacket for security and warmth. The angle of the front zip is smaller than on our other Aero bike jackets which makes the lapel smaller. Its amazing how often original bike jackets from this period mixed the zippers, utilizing the most ideal zip for each job. We have done the same. The belt is a full sized detachable belt, which spreads through a cleverly designed slot in the kidney panel, as can be seen in the top, left hand corner photo. The back has a top and bottom yoke with points, between which we've fitted a bi-swing centre panel.
The two-tone version will be available in three colour combinations, Black with the secondary choice of Brown , Cherry or Cordovan with a lining to suit the colour combination.
This is a 1940’s style with a relaxed fit in the shoulders and chest, with a taper to the waist. We suggest ordering the size closest to your relaxed chest, but you may be able to size down one size for a closer fit. The production team will look over your measurements and make sure we take the taper into account.
