Jacket Review: Harley Davidson #1 Vintage leather jacket

Harley Davidson #1 Vintage leather jacket £404.72

Time tested: 2000 miles/4 months

What’s good? The #1 Vintage is a jacket that has quickly found it’s way into my top ten all-time favorite bits of riding kit alongside my Ruby lid and Belstaff Trialmaster. With subtle branding and faultless construction it’s ideal for summer cruising or wearing down the pub. From Harley’s Black Label range of more understated, urban style clothing, the leather is what they call ‘antiqued’ with a dulled, lived in appearance. The embroidered logo on the back is just subtle enough to not be too in-your-face and the HDMC moniker (Harley Davidson Motor Company) is a bit different to the usual bar and shield Harley logo. A ‘tall’ version of the jacket is also available that as the name suggests, is longer in the body and sleeves.

What’s not? There is zero body armour and no provision for any, plus while the leather is exquisite, it’s not that thick. Think of it more as a casual jacket you can ride in.
