Firmly planted in the cultural and style zeitgeists of the 20th and 21st centuries, the leather jacket is nothing short of an icon. Originally designed and sold in the US in its current motorcycle designs, it quickly spread worldwide with England taking particular interest in the double rider design, creating their own versions as well, which sit nicely alongside the American counterparts.

James Grose is a British maker, but was recently revived by a Japanese motorcycling enthusiast who insisted on keeping the make within England and to the highest specs. Every James Grose jacket is hand crafted in an East London workshop, family owned since the early 1980’s.

A strong focus is placed on the leathers used, with a lot of care to ensure they are both heavyweight sturdy, yet comfortable from the start. Pay special attention to the horse leather used, which is washed and won’t require the painful break in of your typical horse options.
