Custom LEATHERTOGS Horsehide Motorcycle Jacket
 WWII

 



 




 


 


The affinity between high performance Horsehide jackets, be they military, law enforcement or civilian, is most evident in this Custom piece made for an AAF enlisted man to take to war. The color is Russet Brown and the epaulets also emulate the A-2.  Zippers are military issue Talons and a semi-hidden vertical pocket lies under the lapel. A painted leather 101st Reconnaissance Squadron patch is sewn on the left chest and the owner's name and rank are stamped inside. This is by no means the first motorcycle jacket we've run across that was used in the armed services during the war but they are, make no mistake, very rare. This is, however, the first we've seen that was custom made for AAF use. The 101st was stationed in Hyannis before embarking for Europe so it's clear that the owner visited Leathertogs, an eminent original motorcycle clothing manufacturer of the very highest quality in Everitt, Mass. to order this jacket.

Note that this label does not indicate Beck, additional evidence that BECK distributed Leathertogs (and its Northeaster Flying Togs) and likely indicative that Becks themselves were made by Leathertogs.
