Meet the Gustin L3 Leather Jacket - a vintage inspired, cafe racer style tastefully fitted for everyday use. We’ve updated this iconic jacket and treated it to the finest construction and leathers possible for you. The best part, we get to show you the kind of value all-American construction can offer on an intricate style like this.
This L3 is crafted from full grain steer hide from Germany. If you're searching for a thoroughly classic leather that's heavy yet supremely soft on day one, this is the perfect choice. When you imagine a leather jacket in your mind, this style is exactly what comes to mind from color to feel. It is dyed to a pure jet black shade. The color is deeply saturated and consistent. The grain on this leather is prominent, giving the surface wonderful texture. The feel is where things really get sweet. This leather is very substantial, but also incredibly supple. It almost feels like a very heavy fabric and drapes incredibly well. The comfort is amazing right out of the box. Color, texture, weight, comfort, this leather sews into an L3 that's easy to love.
There is a beautiful minimalism to the cafe racer style that has kept it relevant and increasingly popular for decades. The entire garment is a study in great fit and clean functional lines. Our L3 is designed to hit near the waist, staying true to this style's functional roots as a motorcycle jacket. There is an ample amount of taper from chest to waist, making the overall silhouette clean and fitted. Our fit helps give this jacket the versatility to look just as good worn to the office or out at night (even when you leave your bike at home). A compact band collar secured with a large snap defines the look. Only functional pockets, two on the chest and two for the hands adorn the front body with closing duties handled by large antique brass, vintage shaped Talon zippers. All this beautiful antique brass hardware lends a rustic contrast to the leather. A seamless center back panel is the perfect showcase for the beautiful leathers we use and gives you a huge plane of hide to admire. The bottom back gets a rectangular segment in true moto style. Large gussets on the side-back allow for better movement and are punctuated by zippered vents. The body and arms are lined with a jet black herringbone cloth that lends a subtle texture to the interior of the jacket. Simple, clean and wearable.
