The cafe racer leather jacket hit mainstream fashion in the 1960s, aptly named after British motorcyclists who would soup up old motorbikes and race them between pubs and cafes. And even if you’ve never ridden a motorcycle in your life, this indigo leather version of the cafe racer by Our Legacy will certainly have you looking suave sipping single origin espressos at your local coffee shop.
This minimalistic leather jacket has a simple zip closure and is made from super supple indigo-dyed French leather, which has the potential to gain rich patina over years of wear. All the zips, including the slanted chest pocket, feature a tonal leather pull-tab, and the mandarin collar utilizes a snap-button for a snug fit. An otherwise classic piece, Our Legacy added a contemporary touch by leaving the hem raw and unfinished.
