A veg-tanned leather ode to the sports jackets of the early ‘30s, Double Helix’s ‘Hugging the Curve’ is steeped in motorcycle racing’s hell-for-leather legacy. With its tweed lining, classic collar construction, and adjustable side cinches, the jacket hits a sweet spot between sporting and sophisticated. The intricate ‘teacore’ tanning process used to produce the jacket’s 1.3mm horsehide makes this a true investment piece. Over the years to come, the jacket’s black overdye will fade and flake away to reveal a beautiful, vintage brown foundation.

Elliot wears a size 40 jacket. He is 185cm tall and weighs 74kg / 6ft 1" and 163 lbs.
