Freewheelers "Bodie" Deerskin Sports Jacket (Vintage Brown)

Yet again, another 'heirloom' standard jacket from FW!

The design inspiration for this one comes from the sports jacket styles worn by global travellers in the 1930s of Bodie, California where the gold rush once took place.

When talking about quality leathers, deerskin is one of the most sought after. This version created by Shinki exclusively for FW is a seriously unique style we haven't seen before! This 1.3mm thick deerskin has been skilfully tanned a deep brown colour with a reddish hue. Looking closely you can see how they've kept the irregular texture by showcasing the natural character of the hide's creases, folds and wounds. With time you'll see a beautiful rich sheen appear, a strong contrast from the matte-like brand new state. The deerskin will reveal a brighter shade of brownish-red!

For those who have never tried deerskin, we bet you will be amazed at how warm it is compared to cowhide or horsehide. The inner lining is made up of a newly developed cotton moleskin fabric that is super smooth and cosy against the skin.

Built carefully using vintage machines and hand cutting processes, the curved details and stitching are incredibly neat. If you compare these aspects to many other "high standard" leather jackets you will see how FW does trump the rest! The front zip is a vintage styled 'WHIZZER' with a locking mechanism. You can always adjust the cuffs to a tighter fit with the large carved buttons!

If you're looking to choose a lifetime leather jacket created with Japan's finest materials and craftsman... this is it!
