They had this jacket made for them by Bates of California. They were slim, tall, and had long arms. And lo, they ordered it in the black and the red, with a racy stripe running down the arm, in the way of so many nice cafe racer jackets. It was fashioned with loving care, with Talon zippers, a shiny 70s liner, a personalized tag for Ronnie, and a fleecy warm liner that zips handily in and out, according to the temperature on that particular day in our far, far past.
This vest came to me by way of England, so it’s well-traveled as well as being a shiny, shiny object. It’s made of a very nice leather, and even the lettering and patches are leather, not just embroidery. I’ve never seen the like, and can’t find its duplicate on the interwebs, so I’m gonna guess it’s a bit of a rarity.
