Okay, people. These here vintage britches (try saying that three times fast) have a patina of age, a patina of wear, and a patina of mystery. Despite their age, which is apparent from every angle, the leather is still soft, thick, flexible, and wearable. You’ll be…
Wheee! A local collector just dropped off a sweet chunk of his collection of vintage leather jackets, pants, jodhpurs, and military flight suits, ranging from World War 2 1940s to the 50s and up to the 1970s. These are mostly horsehide items, with some steerhide. Size 42, 44, 46 & 50 jackets. Size 36 – 38 pants.
Scroll past the picture gallery to the table of descriptions and prices for all the deets!
Oh yeah. I forgot to say: Patina, patina, patina.
Below is the German flight 1960’s suit on a person who is 5’7″ tall and who gracefully allowed me to harry him into posing for these pics for you. He wears a 44 – 46 jacket, generally.
All the deets!

Once upon a time, a fashion designer and a motorcycle jacket maker met, and, like chocolate and peanut butter, they saw that, combined, their sartorial presentation would be mighty.
Here’s a rarity — a full set of Langlitz leather gear in the Cascade style. In case you don’t know Langlitz, it’s the brand known as the world’s best motorcycle leathers. New Langlitz jackets can go for as much as $1250, and vintage ones for…
You’ve heard of an item being described as a conversation starter? This vest is kind of a conversation compeller. In fact, folks may flag you down in traffic and ask why you winked at them.
Are you five foot two, eye of blue? Don’t look now. Here’s $99 of painted magic.
Here’s a lovely high-end vintage piece for the tall size 44 rider. The Belstaff brand, founded in 1924, showed that the Brits were well onto the fact that riding without protection could give you a stiff upper lip. They’re famous for quality gear! You have…
Any time you’re sailing down the road at high speed and realize that at some moment past you left your motorcycle behind (Eeeeek!), safety becomes a rather immediate concern. Leather has long been appreciated for its abrasion resistance… but what if you’re travelling a long…
O, the apocalyptic Mad Max kinda sandy, dusty, parched desert roads these Harley Davidson Mega Harness square-toed engineer boots have seen! We can easily envision mutant post-nuclear humanoids wearing these boots while riding industrial dunebuggies and cracked-out cafe racer motorbikes.
Honestly, it looks like they’ve spent the last few years riding directly into the maw of a sandblaster while having mutant Dobermans chew on the toes.
Leather’s worn. Heels and sole are worn. They look like hell but retain their thick-leathered structural integrity.
Size approx 9.5 men’s / 11 women’s. Stock # 2240
Oh, and hey. Theyre CSA approved.
Wesco boots are known worldwide for being made with remarkable eye to quality and last-foreverness. (I just made that word up.) Those of us with a fetish for tough, durable footwear probably already know all about them. These look like a Jobmaster 10″ lace-to-toe, which…
These don’t have a stock number because I’m trying to decide whether to keep these for myself, honestly. They are the sweetest, nastiest, funkiest, most eye-catching pair of Daytons I may have ever seen. And they fit me. Hmm.
Size 9.5M, give or take. They’ve obviously had a hell of a life thus far, and have come through it with only a bunch of scuffs on inside of the red heels, a certain scarring of the texture of the toes, and a slight scent of what I assume is brimstone. They’re nicely broken in and lace up snug and tight all 12″ up your calves.
Apart from the lugged sole and height, this boot resembles the famed 6″ Driver (shown below). Dayton does NOT make these as stock boot, and even the next closest boot in the Dayton menagerie, the Dogmaster (shown below) is no longer made by Dayton.
This is a one-of-a-kind boot, so if you think you want ’em more than I do, call me and make me an offer (it’ll have to be aÂ good one), or drop by the store.
Army boots (which are misnamed, being more properly leggy boots, or possibly feety boots) are a kind of a staple boot, no? Always handy to have a pair around. They’re almost indestructable, can be made quite waterproof, and are pretty dang comfortable. This is a…
This is a super cute (should I say, freakin’ DANK) Zox motocross helmet with very fancy-ass paint depicting punk skulls with steel mohawks and fangs looking slightly put out with the state of the world. And flames. I do love a good flame. Flat black.…
Its fit is genderless, although for womanly-bodied folks, there’s not much room for The Girls when it’s fully zipped.
It’s made in Montreal. I fancy that if one listens closely, one can hear the Quebequois accent. Ziiiiiip!
Biker leather jacket in a deep brown distressed leather. Don’t worry; the distress is all in the colour and the jacket itself seems quite cheery. Fully lined with a sweet plaid lining. This jacket is very obviously meant to be worn with some scruffy-ass faded…
These beautiful round-toe motorcycle boots were first worn by a caveman biker back in the early days of footwear, and have made it through the ages intact. Would pair nicely with a rough-hewn wooden club. From noted boot aficianado Dr Z; “These boots evoke the…
