The WAX CANVAS RIDER COAT is inspired by my grandfather and early Harley Davidson® motorcycle club jackets. The rider jacket pays homage to my grandfather who commuted weekly from the Mohican Indian Reservation to weld for Harley Davidson® during the 1950's and 1960's.
When you put on the RIDER COAT, you are wearing a coat built to honor grandfather and his life. We built the coat with his characteristics and values. Resilience. Bravery. Honesty. Dedication. Strength. Durability. Toughness. We incorporated modifications from numerous Wisconsin moto-club jackets of the era into one coat. We applied a banded collar, slimmed the sides, lengthened the back, and extended the arms...then we made it from wax canvas made by the same family for the US military for seven generations. Go ahead - try to wear it out.
