In the vintage world there’s some pieces known as the ‘Holy grail’. When you come across them, whatever the era, they have the effect to make you take a short, sharp, intake of breath. The infamous ‘Grizzly’ is one of those pieces.
The most recent addition to the SJC range is this custom biker jackets. Made from a medium weight 1.2mm steer hide. The black leather is tea core dyed meaning it’s tanned a natural brown first, air dried, and then dyed black, twice. As it ages your Grizzly will reveal a lovely patina. 2cm thick shearling is added for warmth and luxury. The neck is stylishly wrapped in a shawl collar with a throat latch to keep out the elements.The jacket is lined in black corduroy and comes with a safe keeping internal pocket.
This piece is available on order currently and I got to say, I’m tempted.
