AllSaints have re-vamped and re-designed the vintage biker jacket for the iPhone generation, utilising classic biker details while updating the look with a asymmetric front fastening, exposed zip pockets and a buckle throat strap under the collar. The jacket also comes in a slim fitting cut, ensuring a much more contemporary, fitted silhouette.
The ‘Standen’ is crafted from wax coated goat skins, which have been heavily crushed and tumbled. To emphasise the vintage appeal of the piece, the seams have also been hand burnished to give them a unique, worn-in appearance.
Styling wise, if you think jeans with a black leather jacket will bring you just too close to the 1950s Grease monkey stereotype for comfort, white trousers are an excellent alternative. The clashing colours will provide an excellent statement ensemble; breaking the mould while retaining some vintage class.
The Standen Leather Jacket is available to order now from the AllSaints website, priced at at £295.
