“Varenne” Black Leather Jacket

“Varenne” Black Leather Jacket

(13 customer reviews)


Inspired by late 40s Sport jackets and revisited with a unique Italian touch, the “Varenne” represents an authentic garment made of chrome tanned, drum dyed, full grain Steerhide from Vicenza (Italy) and “Espresso Coffee” color viscose lining.

The Full Grain Steerhide from Vicenza (Italy) is a high quality steerhide that ages beautifully, developing fantastic fades that reveal unique undertones. Thickness is around 1,1mm, making the Varenne a durable and high-end premium jacket.

Natural leathers like the Vicenza Steerhide have their own distinctive character and slight differences in texture, grain, scratches and color tone are signs of its authenticity.

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.

The name “Varenne” is a tribute to the legendary Italian horse, the best Racer of All Time.

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.

    Artisan de haute qualité, suivit de la clientèle au top grâce à Marco, très fier de faire parti de la communauté shangri la.

    Veste parfaite pour la moto ! très gros style !

    Apart from the quality of the jacket and how well made it is.
    The best thing is that they treated all my requests to make the jacket to measure and then also make some modifications.
    They are professionals and they like what they do and that their customers are satisfied

    Compré la chaqueta en un distribuidor de la marca En Madrid, Una talla L para un hombre de 1.83m y 65kg. No hay mejor publicidad para esta prenda que verla en persona y probártela, no te las vas a querer quitar, las fotos no hacen justicia a la calidad de todos sus elementos desde la cremallera hasta los broches de los botones. El cuero del forro exterior es de grano completo de vacuno de muy buena calidad, es un cuero rígido pero me imagino que con el tiempo se ira amoldando al cuerpo, se nota en el peso de la chaqueta y el olor. El forro interior muy suave, transpirable y cómodo, todo de calidad premium. Todo esto con una confección soberbia, se nota que la chaqueta esta hecha a mano por un profesional con experiencia trabajando el cuero. Es una chaqueta pensada para que te dure muuuchos años, cada euro está justificado en esta chaqueta, si estas pensado en adquirir una ni lo dudes, no te vas a arrepentir

    Have the jacket for about a week now. Shipping took about 5 days. Jacket is very comfortable, heavy wieght and fits like charm (I’m 190cm 75kg and ordered size L). You can feel the quality just by wearing it. Everything is pieced perfectly together. Every hem and seam is perfectly aligned, you can really tell a good craftsmanship. I also very like the inside of the jacket, two pockets are just the perfect size and the fabric used for the lining is very comfortable and breathable. This jacket stay with you for a long time, that’s for sure. I also want to thank Marco for outstanding customer service – you don’t see this every day. Keep up the good work and thank you for the jacket!

    My Black Varenne arrived yesterday. I’m in love. Everything about the jacket is a dream – the fit, the feel, the smell, the weight, the detail. On top of this, Marco & Daniel’s customer service has been impeccable throughout & they went above and beyond to help with some unexpected import issues. Had my eye on this jacket for about a year, and it was well worth finally making the investment! I also bought the ‘Winged Wheel’ Black T-Shirt and the quality & fit is super nice. Grazie guys

    UK people – it’s worth noting the delivery import charge is pretty hefty now sadly.

    I have purchased the Varenne Black Leather Jacket. The quality is unrivaled. The Leather quality is great and of the highest quality. I was happy with the consultation. Marco responded the same day. After discussing I bought the L size which is a perfect fit. I have never bought a jacket with this quality before. I am so super happy with the result and bought the Varenne-whiskey-horsehide-version as well. Craftsmanship at its best. Thanks guys.

    The product ? Great value for money, perfect fit and high quality standard. I have a black Varenne for 6 month and I’m wearing it all the time even if I’m more a gentleman than a biker…
    But the most important is about customer experience at Shangri-La… The kindeness of the team: reactivity, help, contacting me directly by the phone in France for questions etc.
    All the best for 2021, you are deserving it.

    Je viens d’acquérir cette magnifique veste, la coupe est parfaite et que dire de la qualité des matières et du design !
    Vraiment content de cette pièces, l’équipe est hyper réactive et super sympa, je recommande sans hésiter !
    Thank you again.

  9. Ben (verified owner)

    Je suis extrêmement content de mon achat !
    La veste est magnifique, on perçoit d’emblée la qualité et la finesse du travail qui a été fait de la conception à la réalisation.

    Mais “Shangri-la” c’est également des personnes à votre écoute. (avant et … également après !!!)
    Avant de la commander, j’ai pris contact avec eux dans le but de trouver ma taille idéale. Tout au long de nos échanges, j’ai perçu un réel professionnalisme de leur part afin que je puisse être pleinement satisfait de mon acquisition.
    Je les ai également contacté par après concernant le type de protection que je pouvais associer à la veste et dans la journée, j’ai obtenu une réponse de leur part !

    Encore merci pour votre sérieux aussi bien par rapport au “produit” qu’à ce qui l’entoure.(écoute, service après-vente, ….)

    Bought the jacket at the “Meet The Makers” fair in Munich. I am very happy with the jacket , quality, fit and finish are outstanding.
    Thanks again for the very patient consultation.

  11. Dmitriy

    Absolutely awewome jacket, better than some famous brands.
    Outstanding qulaity of leather and good fit (a little tight in waist i think-due to lining i think, you need to make it more roomie).
    Like the model, like the color depth, like the price, highly recommended to buy one!
    5 stars!

    I have used Shangri-la`s black Varenne leather jacket a few days in pretty tough conditions now. First impressions are that this is a REAL jacket. I had high expectaitions and this jacket delivers! Fit, feel and even the smell make this the real deal. The jacket is made in 1.4mm cowhide and has some weight to it and just underlines the fact that you are wearing a propper leather jacket. Even though it has some heft, it is very soft and supple. It looks just great with a classic cut and arms long enough for motorcycle use. Overall, this is a jacket you fall in love with and will look even better the more you wear it. Thank you from a very happy customer from Norway.

    As a rider, this is my favorite jacket. It is really comfortable and flexible, the fit is fabulous and the 1,4 mm high quality leather gives you protection from wind and rain, making it good for those who really ride in all conditions. In addition, it is a good looking jacket i can wear anytime! keep it going guys!
