The unique BECK NORTHEASTER FLYING TOGS Horsehide Motorcycle Jacket is the 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; they educate.


The history of this extraordinary jacket is fascinating. An AAF man stationed with the
101
Reconnaissance Squadron 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.

To reproduce this one-of-a-kind American classic we use, of course, our magnificent 3-0 - 4.0 oz. Russet Horsehide (customer choice - the original is 3.0 oz). The Lining --"Time Machine" NOS heavyweight pure Rayon Satin per the original, dating from the 1940s, including Rayon-lined epaulets (!). Nickel or Brass NOS Talon or Conmar Zippers and genuine US-made Nickel over Brass Garrison Buckle. Riveted Belt Loops. US Nickel Scovill Snaps. Nickel Bars cast for us in the UK accent the horizontal pocket edges.

The 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.

"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
of Lost Worlds. Thank you and whoever built this amazing jacket at your workshop."
