When it comes to dual use motorcycle gear, it’s difficult to strike that perfect balance between style and function — especially if you’re looking for a durable piece of attire from one of the industry’s leading companies. That being said, the team at Jane Motorcycles has decided to answer the moto community’s repeated prayers with the new Sashiko Mechanic’s Jacket — a purposeful piece of outerwear that calls upon Japan’s timeless denim to create a slick, stylish silhouette.

The Jane Motorcycle Sashiko is the perfect choice for riders who are looking to shy away from heavier garments during the summer riding months, integrating lightweight raw indigo denim and a slew of elbow and shoulder inserts that can be used in tandem with protective d30 armor. To replicate the Sashiko’s timeless style, the company utilizes a traditional hand-sewing technique from ancient Japan — referencing the “plain running stitch” that gives the garment its handsome geometric pattern. A natural indigo dye has also been implemented, ensuring a beautiful fade over the lifetime of the New York-made piece of outerwear. The Sashiko Mechanic’s Jacket is available now via Jane Motorcycle’s website for $350.

Purchase: $350
