Designed for everyday style but with superior functionality for riding, this Cafe Racer motorcycle jacket from Vaktare M.G. hits the mark in all aspects of both form and function thanks to a handsome American cowhide construction and its homage to legendary pilot jackets from WW1.

Dubbed the Vaktare Pilot Racer Jacket, each piece – available in both black and cognac colorways – comes equipped with extra sleeve length for riding, sleeve darts for natural arm movement, adjustable cuff zippers, a genuine Sherpa wool collar, and pockets for armor in the back, shoulder, and elbow regions. And to top it all off, every Racer Pilot Jacket is 100% American made in Vaktare’s studio in Los Angeles. Stylish and utilitarian, this is one fine leather jacket suited for both the tarmac and the local watering hole.
