The vintage racing jacket from

I truly believe that every man should have a vintage motorcycle/racing  jacket in his closet.  One that looks worn in and preferably a few patches.  This is, of course, different from the actual racing jacket you wear when you are riding a motorcycle.

True motorcycle jackets have very thick leather, too much padding and are designed to be ergonomic for a rider in riding position.  What you want is a motorcycle jacket that is comfortable all day – not too thick – so you can wear a sweater underneath.

This item is best worn with a t-shirt,  jeans and a nice pair of aviators, such as those made by Ray-Ban.
