Based on a British classic issued during the WWI and WWII by the British army to protect the troops against the cold but allowing freedom of movement. These garments generally had four buttons and were lined with khaki wool. They were practical, hardwearing and extremely appreciated by officers and other ranks alike.
We have issued 2 versions, both in vegetable tanned cowhide leather with different linings. One with Khaki 100% wool serge fabric like the original and a light weight version with Herringbone Twill Camo lining. With the "Army" weave and the right number of colors, 5 on the green side and 4 on the brown, this camo fabric was most widely issued at the request of General Douglas MacArthur to Marines in the Pacific theater of WWII.
When buying an El Solitario leather piece you are buying the most exclusive and sophisticated motorcycle leathers ever produced and a piece of our history. El Solitario leathers are hand made locally in our small atelier and only 3 persons touch, cut and sew our pieces, making them unique masterpieces of art, form and technique. This also means we cant have much stock and, although most orders are shipped within 4/5 days, exceptionally your order could take a couple of weeks.
