Talking about some of the best ‘Made In Japan' leather jackets, you can not ignore The Flat Head! The concept of this single-riders jacket is inspired by the 1950s vintage version, The Flat Head does re-create this jacket to the next level!
The shell of this sport jacket is made of a 1.3mm thick horsehide which is specially developed by Shinki, the most famous Japanese leather tannery for The Flat Head! This horsehide is sourced from professional racehorses with lean muscle. Making for a super dark horse hide with a very strong sheen, unlike natural grazing horses. It takes 4 ~ 6 months to finish its vegetable tanning process and its black uneven dyeing (a.k.a Black Tea-core Dyeing). With wear, you will expect some more beautiful sheen and also some reddish-brown underneath coming up little by little.
This jacket is lined with their signature lightweight jersey rayon, which is made up of fibre of bamboo. It is antibacterial material and also makes this horsehide jacket more breathable on warm days!
Fitting-wise, it is in The Flat Head's signature tailored slim fit that has slimmer sleeves and a slightly longer body length than the vintage version! That short-stand collar will protect your neck for some windy days!
If you are looking for a LIFETIME horsehide jacket, this is an ideal one!
