    Vanson Sport Rider Perforated Leather Cafe Racer Riding Jacket
    Tag size 40
    Made in Boston, Massachusetts

    This will be my third or fourth Vanson sold on the lounge in the past few months as I continue to ween down my size 40 jackets that I've outgrown (physically) as I've aged. This one is in very good condition. The jacket was worn enough to break it in but it is clean condition inside and out with no issues. The leather is fantastic, as all Vanson leathers are. The brass hardware shows some minor, superficial oxidation but everything works well (snaps, zips).

    It fits true to size to a men's 40. This is a classic riding jacket, short in length (so the jacket doesn't ride up on you when you sit) and long in the arms for reaching toward the bars. It's a beautiful, athletic cut that is meant to conform to your body for a snug fit. There have been a couple iterations of Vanson's Sport Rider over the years and this is one of the early ones. It's not an 'armored' jacket. It features double thick competition weight leather on the shoulders and elbows - a beastly leather that provides some protection but offers nice flex. It's a beauty and a pleasure to wear.

    Here are some actual measurements, given in inches and taken with the jacket laid flat and zipped.

    chest (pit to pit) 21 1/2
    shoulder (seam to seam across back) 19
    sleeve (around top curve from shoulder seam to end of cuff) 26 1/2
    front length 23 3/4
    rear length 24 3/4

    $195 for the jacket plus $18 USPS Priority shipping CONUS.

    Feel free to ask questions! Message me.

    Thanks for looking.

    Great price on this. I have this a size larger, and it is extremely comfortable on the bike. Can't go wrong with Vanson for riding. GLWS.

    Thanks!

    I'm open to reasonable offers on the jacket as well. Not swinging for the fences on this one, just looking for a good home.

    They're a very well executed, purpose built jacket. I find the perf really helps in ventilation, a plus for me since i tend to run hot.

    It helps that the jacket looks great.
