There are a few things in men’s fashions that have stood the test of time- a well made suit, a good pair of jeans, and a leather jacket. Everything else seems to date the wearer to a specific decade, however these three things look right at home from the Mad Men era of the 1950s and 60s to the modern day, with minor modifications of course.
Recently, Gerry had the chance to review one of these three main stays in the man’s wardrobe a VikingCycle leather jacket. This was a black leather motorcycle jacket which was fabulously priced at under $100, which anyone who has ever shopped for a leather jacket knows is a great price.
The jacket is made of quality cowhide leather with very nice antique brass hard ware. The lining can be zipped out which makes this a great jacket for all types of weather, which is good living in Canada. There are also zipper vents on the front, the back and the sleeves, which are very practical and also add a little extra something to the look and the feel of the jacket. Of course there are several zippered pockets which as every man know are a must, especially when using this jacket on a motorcycle. When ordering there is a sizing guide to follow, and we found that the jacket does fit true to size, which was great, no surprises.
The jackets are have a heavy feel to them which is a must when riding a motorcycle, as it offers maximum protection in the event that you meet asphalt, but it is nice to have great looking jacket that offers this type of protection. MotorcycleHouse offers many different types of leather jackets so you can find one that suits not only your style but also your ride.
