Meet the Robinson: a classic waxed cotton motorcycle jacket designed for everyday use on or off the bike.
Produced in close collaboration with Vanson Leathers, this American-made jacket is packed with an arsenal of hidden features that collectively make it more comfortable, more practical and more protective than any other jacket in its class.
We named this new jacket after the Jackie Robinson Parkway, an 80-year-old, five-mile-long stretch of patched-over pavement that winds its way from the eastern edge of Brooklyn to the heart of Queens. Formerly called the Interborough Parkway and known to some as the Queens Autobahn, this narrow thoroughfare is often thronged with bigger and faster cars than what it was originally designed for. And even during the odd hours when it’s clear of traffic, its blind curves and crumbling road surface make it one of the most dangerous roads in the city.
The new Robinson jacket is built to handle the roughest road in New York—or any city street—with confidence and class.
Update 4/9/14: We now have black Robinsons in stock in every size in the store, and tan jackets are being finished and shipping from Vanson as soon as the final batch of facing leather comes in -- they are 95% complete, and 50% sold. To reserve a tan jacket simply purchase it through the website and we'll send you a confirmation, and ship as soon as they become available.
