Customized yak leather rider's jacket designed and made by Nine Lives in Japan.
With better tensile strength than cowhide, this 1.2mm yak hide is exceptionally robust and resistant to abrasion due to its compactly woven collagen fibre and closed grain. Yak is also highly breathable as well as being buttery soft.
The elastic-banded bi-swing back pleated shoulders and two-way zipper provide optimum maneuverability.
An internal "sunglass pocket" has been positioned to sit below the ribcage for comfort, and has been designed to assist the reaching hand while preventing the frames from wedging horizontally.
Finished with combination leather oil, zipped cuffs, coffin back yoke, leather trim, and microsuede lining. This jacket is a beautiful example of form and function.

Released as part of their AW20 collection, Trophy Clothing brings us another rendition of their classic Hummingbird Jacket - based on a jacket style from the 1940s. This time it has been constructed from heavy black horsehide leather. This Hummingbird Jacket, like its denim brothers, features brass universal zips and sand-cast side cinch buckles, but this leather version features the addition of storm cuffs to keep the sleeves in place on a bike or otherwise. Twin hand pockets lined with 100% cotton. Tonal single-needle stitching has been used throughout.
When it comes to motorcycle-inspired leather jackets, Trophy Clothing set the bar with their immaculately constructed renditions of iconic classics. The ‘Ranger W’ cuts no corners on the quality front, it has been constructed from a soft tea core horsehide leather that has been cut in a classic rider’s jacket silhouette with all the expected detailing.
The leather is responsibly sourced and only the finest hides are selected. The tanning process is kept traditional with only a brown base layer going down before the black creating the desirable tea core finish. This intricate process would usually show all the scars on your standard hide which many others would hide with chrome tanning. Trophy opted for the traditional and more natural method of tanning, using one of Osaka’s finest tanneries, completely trusting their choice of leather by keeping it all on show.
The use of quality materials doesn’t stop at the leather on this jacket either. The black and white check, 100% cotton lining brings the heritage elements of this garment together, the fabric itself has been used in the construction of many of their flannel shirts. YKK hardware has been used throughout with three zip closure pockets on the front and one kidney pocket on the rear.
