Produced exclusively for their 25th Anniversary and in highly limited quantities, the Indigo Horse Grizzly Jacket is the first Grizzly Jacket that Y'2 have released since their 20th Anniversary. Cut from their iconic indigo horsehide, it features a more contemporary fit, with gold mouton throughout and a plaid wool lining on the inside.
The horsehide grizzly jacket is one of the most serious leather jackets ever conceived. The biker equivalent of the sheepskin flight jacket, grizzly jackets combine sturdy horsehide bodies with extensive mouton sheepskin trims, armoring any wearer against wind and cold.
Dyeing leather with indigo is actually quite a difficult process—it's something that's easy to get not quite right, and even easier to mess up completely. The tannery that have managed to dye the horsehide used on these jackets such a consistent and rich indigo came upon this recipe after years of trial and error. As the process to dye horsehide is very different from the process of dying cotton, you can expect this indigo leather to act a bit differently over time than your favorite pair of jeans.
Over time, the horsehide will lighten up in areas of high wear, fading to a lighter shade of blue. Don't expect this thing to ever go hot blue though, the color will remain mostly consistent throughout, as the dye has a much more stable bond with the leather than it ever forms with a cotton thread. You also won't have to worry about accidentally getting indigo all over things, which is a plus for sure.
The details are stripped back, for a more clean and simplified exterior - Y'2 have removed the belt from the front, replacing it with side tab buttons for adjusting the fit through the hem. The paneling is meticulous, cut for maximum comfort and utility even when riding a motorcycle (this is a leather jacket, after all), and features heavy-duty hardware, from the brass zipper to the corozo nut buttons and custom woven labels inside.
Fits true to size. Do not wash, dry or dry clean.
