unique LEATHERTOGS Horsehide Motorcycle Jacket, a remarkable, complex, difficult-to-make, detailed motorcycle jacket.
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.
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.
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 decided to use the L/T 'A' for my go-to jacket when I
work with our horses. Dirty manual labor, rain or shine.
Works wonders to break it in! This is one of the things that
sets your jackets apart. I do not
feel the need to protect the jacket, I know it can take the
abuse and be even better after that. Thanks!'

Comments From Owner:
"I know the saying is
"no one likes a show-off", but that doesn't apply - you feel
free to continue showing off as much as you want. Though,
I'm beginning to think this isn't you flexing your skills -
this is just a regular f*ing Tuesday at Lost Worlds.
The deerhide LT/A arrived and immediately
went on a ride to the mountains. It feels like I've been
wearing it for years, it's not just "fit" - it "sits"
right where is should - close, but not restricting
movement in any way. How many leathers can you wear and
reach over your head? Ridiculously well done designs.
World class? Yes. Best in the world? Also - yes.
Thank you for another awesome jacket, I
appreciate all the help - great call with the hardware,
and the sleeves are great stretched out on the
"P.S - the jeans are gnarly as hell too. Look
forward to breaking them in."

"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."
