The team behind Fountainhead are deeply involved in the leather world, and each jacket is made start to finish in Japan by professional artisans with years of experience making some of the best jackets in the world. 

In addition to the impressive pedigree, Fountainhead walk the walk as well. Using some of the finest materials available, in partnership with their master craftsmanship, like the 1.5mm tea-core Shinki horsehide these jackets are sewn up in, or the Waldes zippers & the 100% cotton lining.

The Beta Jacket is one of our favorite takes on a vintage D-pocket double rider. It's got everything, from the subtle epaulets, to the attached belt, to the vintage-style zips, studded sleeves, hidden pockets, snaps galore... you get it. The fit (narrow shoulders, trim body, slightly short) pushes it over the edge from excellent to exceptional.

The horsehide that this is sewn up in is a phenomenal mid weight,, thick and stiff enough to feel substantial, but never enough to be uncomfortable. Even before being broken in, it's the sort of jacket that feels solid without being heavy, or and doesn't leave you fatigued from wearing it.

These run slightly narrow, particularly in the shoulders - you may need to size up.
