Fade of the Day – Ashman Motorcycle Jacket (10+ Years)

Hop on your bikes, boys and girls, because Fade of the Day is back with some moto action for you! Today’s fades are really a collection of patina, and they come to us in the form of an Ashman motorcycle jacket sent in by Pete Sullivan of the UK.

Pete has put more than 10 years of wear into this cafe racer style jacket, including some road rash from a few years ago, and it shows. The leather has creased nicely with good grain at the inner elbows, and while dyed-through, it’s still showing its own kind of tea core.

This jacket gets waterproofed regularly, which has also no doubt helped cause some of the grain and creasing we see here. The only cleanings? Thanks to being worn in the rain.
