Originally founded in 2006, Attractions began as a vintage reseller, importing pieces from the United States and the UK before starting their own production in 2011. Their experience in the vintage world provided them with the knowledge and inspiration necessary to develop their own styles, growing into an impressive and very special brand in a market saturated with alternatives.
With a deliberate focus on highly specific and often obscure styles from the last hundred years, Attractions produce some truly stellar and unique pieces, occupying a stylistic wheelhouse closely adjacent to "biker" but plainly distinct from other similar repro brands. Inspired by the progression of youth culture and style, Attractions infuse their own perspective into both the pieces they design, and the ways they design them.
Available as a Standard & Strange exclusive, we took Attractions' Lot 500 Horsehide Grizzly Jacket base and gave it our own S&S spin, opting for an undyed natural horsehide body that will age handsomely over time and plush brown mouton trims. The motorcycle equivalent of a sheepskin flight jacket, grizzly jackets combine sturdy horsehide leather with extensive mouton panels through the front and back, armoring any wearer against wind and cold.
Being made from an undyed leather, the horsehide portions of the jacket will darken over time, developing a unique wear patina for each wearer as it takes on color from exposure to light, moisture, and the environment around you. This extremely dynamic leather will only get better over time, softening as it breaks in to the shape of the wearer's body.
Inside, it's lined with a 100% cotton houndstooth twill through the body and all-black cotton twill through the sleeves. True to its early 20th century style, the front features a half-belt with stainless hardware to really secure things when the cold gets intense, and the sleeves fold down with button cuffs. For storage, it's got just the essentials - two side entry hand pockets for stowing your goods or warming your fingers.
It's got a "classic" fit, which in this context means that there's nothing particularly exaggerated about the way it sits on your body. Fitting true to size, it layers comfortably over other garments, but should only be worn beneath another layer in the most dire of situations - as containing this much heat beneath a different garment may cause an explosion (satire).
