The Lavant. New in the 2013 Belstaff Pure Motorcycle Collection
The Lavant. New in the 2013 Belstaff
Pure Motorcycle Collection
This is a brand new for 2013 leather jacket, and it's just about as classic as they come. It ticks all the boxes and has all the styling cues you would expect to see on a café-racer style leather jacket.
That having been said, don't go expecting loads of fancy bells and whistles. This is a back to basics biker jacket. But it has been put together beautifully. From the top of the neck to the bottom of the waistband, this jacket is pure class.
The leather is bull grain of between 1mm and 1.1mm in thickness. You get Cordura backed stretch panels at the elbows, in the shoulders and on the back.
There are CE protectors in the shoulders and elbows. These are made by D3O and, of course, you get a pocket for a back protector. For warmth, there's a detachable quilted jacket with 120 gramme padding on the body and 80 grammes on the sleeves. The jacket comes with four pockets on the outside and two on the inside. Just about everywhere, there's an adjuster or stretch panel, so fit should never be an issue. There are ventilation panels on the back, corduroy in the collar, a subtle logo on the sleeve and, of course, a heavy-duty zip for attaching the jacket to Belstaff's Castle Comb leather pants.
Understated this jacket may be, but it wants for nothing. It would be difficult to look anything but cool in a Lavant. Click here to order yours now.
