The first leather jacket from Freenote showcases their hands-on approach to building outstanding garments in the USA. It's built off of their long-running RJ-1 riders jacket, with gusseted shoulders for comfort and mobility.

Everything that goes into this jacket is well thought out, and built to last. The body is a buttery soft 2.5oz steerhide from South America, with a real shearling collar. Both the hide and the shearling are selected by hand to ensure the highest quality and consistency. A custom Universal Japan zipper closes up the front, and the lining is brushed Italian flannel. Naturally, the sleeves are lined with a cotton-satin for ease of wear.

The construction on this is exceptional, and fitting to the materials. One sewer does all the work from start to finish, for an atelier-level of attention to detail. The signature Freenote 1/8" double needle work is found everywhere on this piece.

True to size. Spot clean only.
