“Café Racer” Black Leather Jacket

(11 customer reviews)


Inspired by late 70s Racing jackets and revisited with a unique Italian touch, the “Café Racer” represents an authentic garment made of vegetable tanned, drum dyed, full grain Lambskin from Tuscany (Italy) and “Espresso Coffee” color viscose lining.

The Vegetable-tanned leather embodies the experience of our life. It matures over time, a rare material that actually improves with age and use, it’s a Natural product that ages just like Wood. The oils from your hands, water, dirt, heat and sunlight will leave their mark, writing the story of your jacket, that will last for a lifetime.

The metallic zippers are made of antique brass with engraved markings.

The attention to detail makes it a rare and authentic leather jacket Hand Made in Italy.

Designed for Bikers, Rockers and Gentlemen.

Any imperfections or variations in color, texture or grain are not to be considered as defects, but distinctive elements of a unique, artisanal quality product.

This is a “1 of 1 piece” exclusive to you.

Every Jacket comes in a high quality 100% organic natural cotton Bag, laced with havana rope and with screen printed logo.

Look at the last pictures to see how it aged after two years of usage.

    I’ve been looking for years to find an amazing leather jacket and I can say I finally say that found it with the “Café Racer Black Leather Jacket”. The quality of this jacket is fantastic, this is clearly above and beyond what you’ll find on the market. You can clearly feel the craftsman “know-how” that emanates from it, as well as its leather level of quality. During the ordering process they helped me choosing the right size, adapted to my morphology and needs.
    It’s worth mentioning that Shangri-La doesn’t only design and produce great leather jackets, but also care a lot for their customers. I’ve had an issue as part of the delivery process, it was entirely my fault but the team didn’t let me down and supported me with concrete actions to help me sort this situation.
    I’d recommend those guys to my closest friends. If you are a biker or simply a leather jacket lover, don’t hesitate a second.
    Thanks guys, I’ll definitely buy another jacket from you.

    I received my black Café Racer jacket from Shangri-La last week and haven’t taken it off! Initially I had gotten a large but it was a little too big for the style and Marco was extremely helpful in the exchange process. For reference, I am 6 foot 180lbs and the medium is spot on off the rack, form fitting but not tight; just long enough when leaned over the motorcycle. This jacket is high quality and I have gotten many compliments on the look of the jacket and the smell of leather from friends and strangers alike. Thanks Shangri-La team!

    I recieved my beautiful made to measure Cafe Racer in black horsehide just today and i have to say i’m overwhelmed! The whole process is one of a kind, Marco and the whole team did such a great job, from the order process to the delivery and most important, the jacket itself.

    The smell of the leather is amazing, never had such an intense smell of pure leather with jackets before from other high end companies. The black horsehide has a very nice structure, the zippers and details are all made with care. You can literally see how much love they put in their jackets!

    I really recommend Shangri La if you want an classic but also modern, stylish leather jacket, which you don’t find in the mall next door. You can definitely ride your motocycle in this jacket and at the same time you will look great sitting in a cafe while enjoying “la dolce vita”.

    Greetings from the United States (Dallas TX)
    I had been looking for good jacket for a while, and I decided to get the cafe racer in steerhide. I also wanted it to be just right. The fit was my concern. But Marco walked me through the whole process. He got my measurements down and made me a pice of art. When I received it I was speechless. When I tried it on I was amazed and speechless at the same time. It has the highest quality of craftsmanship. Thanks again!!

    Ordering process was a breeze, consulted Daniel regarding fit and the recommendation was spot on. Quality was fantastic as well, minor point to take out would be to let the customer know if the standard jacket comes with the armour pockets or not, as the additional pieces of fabric can rub on skin.
