Cafe Racer Leather Jackets are one of the most favorite clothing items for not just the motorcycle riders but people of all ages all over the world. The vintage designs from the 50’s and 60’s continue to live with all their zeal and passion. These classic leather pieces have stood their ground like true warriors and rank at the top of the list of all leather jacket designs. A classy bike and a cafe racer leather jacket make the most deadly combination.
The story behind these racer jackets is that they’re manufactured while keeping in mind all the needs of a biker. They protect you from extreme weather, scratched in case of a mishap and most importantly they make you look stunning. We all know what a cafe racer leather jacket looks like, but few of us know how it got its name. It was after World War II, countries like England and U.S. started to rebuild themselves after facing heavy damages at the hands of Germans.
After the war, there was a huge supply of surplus military motorcycles. People would buy these beauties, chop them down, turn them into great looking machines that could run pretty fast. These adventure loving motorcycle enthusiasts would race each other from one cafe to another and hence the cafe race was born. In 1956 Schott Brothers first made their own version of the cafe racer and called it a Leather Racing Shirt.
Today, there are a limited number of people who wear them to race as often but cafe racers are still designed to be a no frills, functional leather jacket with an ever gorgeous look. The cafe racer jacket was designed specifically for this post war motorcycle culture. A race practical leather jacket, with lesser belts and zippers was introduced and as expected, they became a huge hit in no time.
They are the ultimate “cool guy” costume that can go with everything and can stun everyone when it comes to styling an outfit. Cafe racer jackets usually come with a short banded collar because nobody would want any extra fabric flying around when they go for a ride full of adventure. In the modern times however, these jackets are still on the ramp, constantly evolving, living through times and continuing to exist, with a modern touch of course.
