Freewheelers "Peter's Tailor Made" Label
1930s Motorcycle Jacket / Double Breasted Type

If you're a motorcycle enthusiast, then you know that East coast and West coast have their own distinct styles when it comes to motorcycle jackets. In the pre-war era, “ leather togs” were the ultimate choice in the East coast, while the West coast had its own champion - the San Francisco brand “Peter’s”.

Peter’s rider's jackets are renowned for their "Aviator style." They have a deep fit at the front and a unique collar design that sets them apart. But what makes Peter’s truly special is that each vintage piece has its own character. The sizing, hardware parts, and details vary from one jacket to another, making each one a unique find. With the tag "Tailor Made”, it was clear that this jacket was custom-made for its owner. The craftsmanship was impeccable, a testament to the skill and dedication of the artisans behind Peters.

Another standout design from Peters is the "San Mateo." It features a distinct double-breasted button closure, giving it a bold and stylish look. When the zipper is fully closed, the jacket transforms into a clean design with a stand collar. The silhouette is short, and you can adjust the fit by tightening the laces at the waist on both sides.

Leather jackets produced by Freewheelers are in a league of their own. They are incredibly unique, but not everyone can pull them off with confidence. These jackets are a tangible expression of the immense knowledge and passion for leather jackets that the brand possesses. Each model is carefully crafted with functionality and necessity in mind. They embody the ultimate form of a leather jacket, strongly reflecting the culture and background of the past. When you slip your arms through the sleeves, you can feel the authenticity and history that only a jacket like this can offer.

Explore the craftsmanship and attention to detail that brands like Peter’s and Freewheelers bring to the table. This jacket is more than just a garment, it’s an experience. So go ahead and embrace the world of motorcycle jackets without hesitation.
