We feel that we have taken 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 center panel.
The jacket is lined in heavy-duty black cord, with cotton drill sleeves and has an interior leather kidney panel for extra protection.
Standard size range is 34" to 48" inclusive, other sizes are available by special order
