Ride & Sons Varsity Jacket

Imagine, as a kid, you accompany your Dad to his Flat Track races all over California. You spend your childhood between engines and tools in paddocks and inevitably, you get yourself behind handlebars at a very early age. Eventually your father, manufacturing leather goods such as gloves, aprons or bags for a living, packs up his enthusiastic family and moves to Daytona, a city well-known for its Speedway and its Bike Week. And finally, as icing on the cake, your last name is Ride. That’s a very broad hint, isn’t it?

The Ride Sons, Tony and Steve, combine inherited expertise in leather goods with their passion for motorcycles and start manufacturing motorcycle gloves under the label of RIDE&SONS. But it’s only after meeting Antoine Florio, a French motocross aficionado of Italian origins, that the brand is repositioned. Relying on its American inheritance and its new European creativity and know-how in terms of protective gear, RIDE&SONS now offers a wide range of motorcycle gear. The product range includes jackets, gloves, boots and a soon to be launched denim collection.

For the upcoming season, RIDE&SONS comes up with a range of new products but today, it’s the Varsity Jacket we’d like to present to you.

The atypical look inspired of US Army jackets of the 1920’s ensures a stylish and relaxed look on and off the motorcycle.

The body of the jacket is made out of waxed cotton fabric while its sleeves are made out of full grain leather treated for a vintage look. The Varsity jacket is lined with a waterproof and breathable membrane and comes with two inside pockets. Removable CE-protectors on elbows and shoulders (back in option) protect your bones in the worst case. Retro buttons with snap buttons for closure as well as a high leather collar, made out of flexible leather for comfort, enhance the exceptional look of this motorcycle jacket.

The Varsity jacket is available from mid-april in brown or black. It comes at a rather fair price of 269 € and can be ordered in sizes from S to XXL.

Available here on RIDE&SONS’s website. Go have a look, you can find a lot of other nice products there, made by people who’ve got their handicraft literally put in their cradle.
