TROJAN is one of the purest, rarest and most beautiful vintage motorcycle jackets ever.
In our view a peak of vintage American motorcycle design. Originally manufactured in postwar Southern California, it is bedrock
functional, without frills or add-ons. This brilliant classic was used by serious
riders, frequently post-WWII vets addicted by death and combat to crave
danger and challenge. Not a poseur among 'em. For a fascinating, regrettably
quick shot of the old Trojan factory in LA, watch carefully the first fifteen
minutes of the noir classic THE STREET WITH NO NAME (1948), based on fact and
filmed on location: the undercover Fed Mark Stevens leaves his skid row hotel
and next to it, believe it or not, is the Trojan shop front!
the elaborate and complex "Holster" shaped Twin Pocket construction on
the left chest -- how extraordinarily precise and visually striking our workmanship is. The
quality and details will astonish you. Made by a single paramount craftsman at
our NYC factory, of course. Nothing, at any price, compares. A Jacket
of almost unimaginable durability and strength. Yet, when the miles pile up, it
softens like butter, articulating the matchlessly beautiful pure Horsehide
grain. For those who know, there's Horsehide, then everything else, no
matter how good. (But BEWARE: there's true, primo Horsehide -- LOST WORLDS
exclusive, peerless Horsehide -- and many other wholly different grades out there. Just because it's Horsehide doesn't mean it's good -- sometimes
it doesn't even mean it's Horsehide!!!) Expensive? Only, perhaps, until you see it. Then customers
understand how reasonable LOST WORLDS jackets are. Diehards call us "cheap at
the price." We're sure you will too.

is not mere marketing cliché, attached to whatever files down the assembly
line. For those for whom Authenticity is a word of almost religious power and
