The motorcycle jacket is a type of leather jacket that never seems to go out of style. A New York City based clothing manufacturing company, Schott NYC, that was founded by two brothers was the first to develop the leather motorcycle jacket in 1928. The longevity of the motorcycle style is attributed to a great functional design and the ability to adapt it to modern trends without losing the original concept.
For 2013, menswear designers have put their own stamp on the leather motorcycle jacket. Kenneth Cole takes the classic design with a short rise, asymmetrically zippered front flap, and uses a deep emerald green distressed leather and gold zippered hardware to incorporate the trend of color.
