CLASSIC BRITISH LEATHER MOTORCYCLE JACKET DESIGNS
The iconic Mascot jacket designs grew from the late 1950's until the 1980's, a golden age of British motorcycling and street culture.
They sat alongside the likes of Belstaff & DW Lewis but have been lost for over 30 years, until now.
What started out as an idea to rediscover the story of the legendary Mascot jacket brand also unearthed a lost history of British clothing manufacture in London's east end wharfs stretching back to 1888.
