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 2/15/14: The Robinson is finally off pre-order and we currently have most size/color combos in stock and ready to ship. International customers email with your size and color choice and we'll arrange shipping quote and invoice.
