Leathertogs Shown With
Full Custom Crown Zippers
unique BECK NORTHEASTER FLYING TOGS Horsehide Motorcycle Jacket
most complex-, difficult-, detailed-to-make motorcycle jacket in
our line. And second to none in beauty. The intricate open-seam
stitch construction -- simply a marvel of artisan craft given the
weight of proprietary LOST WORLDS Horsehide -- takes virtually
twice as much painstaking labor than any of our other motorcycle
jackets, not a slouch among them as a matter of fact! When one
wants to learn about quality, look at the seams, the stitch count;
The history of this extraordinary
jacket is fascinating. An AAF man stationed with the
at Hyannis, Mass. went to Leathertogs in Everett, Mass. before
deploying to Europe and specified very particular details adapted to AAF
regulations. Russet Horsehide and sewn Epaulets
emulate the immortal
A-2 Flight Jacket.
The peekaboo hidden zipper on the extended right wind flap/panel
might have been for a small automatic or escape documents. Extra
snaps increase fuctionality throughout. An elegant shaped neck
flap, like those on leather flight helmets, adds further
refinement, visual candy and AAF identity. This Beck/Leathertogs
is sui generis, a remarkable example of motorcycle jacket
individuality and panache, brimming with spirit.

LEATHERTOGS is a treasure and heirloom, an icon fit for a museum, but
first and foremost a wholly
functional riding jacket of incomparable LOST WORLDS durability
with the natural armor-like protection of our amazing American
hides. It's meant for the road although we're flattered our
jackets end up the pride of collections. Sure, it isn't "cheap,"
it's a bargain.
"I received my Leathertogs jacket yesterday. It's beautifully made and fits perfectly.
"The Leathertogs jacket arrived today. I just can't tell you how
happy I am with it- it's truly a work of art in my mind. Thank you
so much for making such amazing jackets! It's summer now, and
hotter than hell in NM, but I will be wearing this jacket in the
early mornings and evenings to break it in so it's ready for the
fall and winter. There's simply nothing like Lost Worlds!"
"We were able to be home yesterday
and the Leathertogs in Russet HH is here. It is perfect. Those
vintage C&C (Crown) zips give this great jacket an extra
presence. Jacket speaks just like you say and I have the
capacity to take it all in. I could really sing the praises
Lost Worlds. Thank you and whoever built this amazing jacket
at your workshop."
