I have never ridden a motorcycle. However, I’m obsessed with motorcycle jackets. There is something about these jackets that make guys look inherently cool.
One of my favorite motorcycle clothing brands is Richa. Since 1956, they have designed and manufactured the some of the best motorcycle jackets in the world. Not only are they classically styled, but they are also comfortable and built for safety with high-density fabric. For 2016, Richa has added a number of new jackets to its already extensive collection. Here are a few of my favorites:
Richa Hipster Jacket
Made from a high quality, tumble-finished hide, the Hipster jacket has pewter-finish poppers, zippers, and waist adjustment buckles. It comes with D3O elbow and shoulder protectors as standard and has a built-in pocket to accommodate a D3O back protector (available separately). There’s rib detailing on the shoulders and a six-inch connecting zipper which allows the jacket to attach to trousers.
Richa Scrambler Jacket
The Scrambler jacket has an outer shell made from British Millerain Waxed cotton fabric and features antiqued brass fixings – including poppers, zippers and waist adjustment buckles. There’s a waterproof and breathable fixed membrane and a removable quilt liner. D3O elbow and shoulder protectors are included and a pocket is built in for a back protector. Quilted checker panels on the elbows and shoulders add to the nostalgic look.
Richa Toulon Jacket
With D3O armor at the shoulders, elbows and back, you’ll be safe and stylish in this premium buffalo leather jacket with a vintage cotton lining and zip-off Polycotton hood. Available in four different colours – black and red, black and blue, black and yellow and plain black.
Richa Retro Racing Jacket
The combination of cowhide leather construction, CE approved protectors, removable thermal liner, and distinctive vintage style makes the Richa Retro Racing jacket an instant classic.
