Inspired by 1950s Motorcycle jackets and revisited with a unique Italian touch, the “Chiodo” Whisky Horsehide Leather Jacket represents an authentic garment made of Front Quarter Pull-up Horsehide by Charles F. Stead, one of the oldest tanneries in the UK (since 1890s in Leeds, United Kingdom).
The Front Quarter Pull-up Horsehide by Charles F. Stead is made by selected European Full Grain horse hides tanned with Steads’ traditional garment tannage and finished with a blend of “classic pull-up” waxes. This produces a pure-aniline leather with a Unique Rich character.
Charles F. Stead is a traditional family business established in 1895, remained faithful to the artisanal skills, techniques and know-how that others have forgotten, taking the time to work the leathers in the traditional way. These skills continue to live on in harmony with modern production technologies. Quality leather can never be a commoditized product, with each hide having its own characteristics, and they treat it accordingly.
A double-breasted front provides an additional layer of protection to the chest, with a storm flap designed to keep water away from the body, protecting every Rider on the Storm. The most distinctive feature of the jacket, however, remains the legendary D-Pocket, also known as the “Gun,” or “Map” pocket.
The metallic zippers are made of antique brass with engraved markings.
The attention to detail makes it a rare and authentic Horse Leather Jacket Hand Made in Italy.
