To draw upon the archetypal influences of the past, it’s paramount to understand why certain designs were the way they were. To understand what was going on socially, politically, and most importantly, artistically. That way we can honor the creations that came before with respect. The Mile motorcycle jacket does exactly that. While we infuse it with modern-day safety components and materials, we pay homage to a style that stood the tests of time. We use a soft leather without much visual grain to harness that ‘70s look. Furthermore, we use materials that are not only soft but are also complemented by stretch, allowing the rider more freedom and flexibility than might have been back in the day.
Additionally, we have incorporated smart features, like a hidden 3D mesh panel behind the center front zipper to improve ventilation. To break up its monotone hue (in one of the jacket offerings), we’ve added a pop of color across the upper back and chest, along with a small shield logo, adding to its retro vibe. We wanted to keep it classy and subdued but to also let riders know that the Mile has futureproof safety behind its name. Those who prefer a ton-sur-ton variant will find one as well.
Pay tribute to the past and ride into the future with the Mile motorcycle jacket.
