The Flat Head’s Café Racer is a paired-back, single rider-style leather jacket. The banded collar design and slim silhouette give it a sportier, more laid-back look overall - as does the absence of handwarmer pockets.
The jacket’s 1.3mm-thick horsehide is sourced from Japan’s Shinki Tannery. Its teacore tannage takes around 6 months to fully perfect, but it results in a beautifully dark leather with an impressive sheen. Over time, the rich blacks of the leather will soften and fade, adding further depths of character as the horsehide’s natural core starts to shine through. An exceptional piece from The Flat Head, one that will only grow more unique as the decades go by.
Elliot wears a size 42 jacket. He is 185cm tall and weighs 80kg / 6ft 1" and 176 lbs.
