"Men's classic motorcycle jackets are the most emotionally volatile and historically rich jackets we have. When I put one on I can't decide if I am going to ride a motorcycle, vandalize a town, or give someone a ticket. Like any piece of great art it means different things to different people.
In 1953 at the age of seven, inspired by Marlon Brando in 'The Wild One', I asked my parents if I could get a motorcycle jacket. At the time, I did not understand the social implications of the jacket. My mother looked at me like I had asked her if I could cannibalize my infant brother. She began to cry softly, ashamed that I was drawn to such evil. I went on to become a small time juvenile delinquent and performed many reprehensible acts but none of them elicited the reaction this simple request did. " ~ Paul, Founder of Fox Creek Leather

Best motorcycle jacket I’
Posted by B Franklin on Jan 26th 2019
This jacket is everything that is advertised and more. Much better than my $500 Harley coat. The fit is perfect and the sleeves allow my gloves to fit over them better than any others I’ve had. Never got cold on my ride out today at 39 degrees. The leather was perfect and appreciate the brass zippers where my other jackets use plastic. I highly recommend Fox Creek products over all the others.
THIS IS A GREAT JACKET
Posted by Jim on Apr 2nd 2018
Aside from the first compliments on an article of clothing I have ever received, the jacket is practical. It has great fit and great range of motion making it one of the most comfortable jackets I own. It may weigh ten pounds, but it fits so well it might as well be down filled.
There is no better MC Jacket made.
Posted by Ed Spinelli on Mar 22nd 2018
I have owned many leather MC jackets over the past 40 years. Some were decent and some were average. None compare to the quality and fit of this jacket. Unbelievable. I am so pleased with this jacket I can't say enough about it. All the reviews I read about Fox Creek leather were positive and raving about how good they are. They are all true. I love this jacket.
Incomparably the best.

Men's Classic Motorcycle Jacket I
Posted by James on Nov 22nd 2017
My old jacket had seen better days, although still comfortable it had suffered a little road rash and some of the zippers needed to be replaced. I looked every where for a American made jacket and finally found it here. The fit was perfect, looks great and is a well made heavy duty jacket. Now my old one is retired to the closet!

After ordering the gauntlet gloves and custom chaps from Fox Creek I had no reservations about ordering this jacket. This classic jacket is the jacket I have always wanted, top quality , warm , durable leather. This is the best jacket I have owned and I have had several over the last 35 years. The customer service is fantastic too. Order anything made by Fox Creek Leather and you won't be sorry.
Men's Classic Motorcycle jacket 1
Posted by Daryl on Nov 22nd 2017
Several years ago I purchased a buffalo nickel buckle vest just on the comments and what I had seen on YouTube on how fox Creek leather do business. I wanted a well made vest which was made in the USA not off shore and Fox Creek leathers made what I believe to the best vest. So when I needed a new jacket there was only one option and that was to go Fox Creek Leathers again. The jacket I ordered and received was once again very well made and the size was spot on. I highly recommend Fox Creek Leathers even though I had to purchase over the Internet as living in Australia walking in the door and trying on sizes was not possible.
The Best Timeless Classic
Posted by Orhan Isvan on Nov 16th 2017
If you were born in 1955 like me, the motorcycle image would start to take shape for you at early sixties and it wouldn’t be surprising if this image would be embedded in your soul together with such a leather jacket. Many people tend to believe that this is due to Marlon Brando wearing one at the film The Wild One in 1953. In my opinion, this should work the other way around because at the time; there was no other notable motorcycle specific jacket that would be meaningful for him to wear. Motorcycles of the era had laced wheels, they were air cooled and serious riders wore this type of leather jackets that are now classics, just like laced wheeled and air cooled street bikes are now retro. Today, all kinds of motorcycle specific jackets that suit all pockets are available and when I needed one, I was pleasantly surprised to find out that the one genuinely embedded in my soul was still available. There are many others that resemble it in visual appearance but some of them cut corners on materials and workmanship, some on features, and some on both.
The Fox Creek Classic Motorcycle Jacket I, on the other hand; is made of the best materials with exemplary workmanship and it features everything I need in a leather motorcycle jacket for street use. The quality of the hide is beyond description. One has to touch it and sense the butter like feeling to truly appreciate the very thick yet extremely supple leather. Its smell evidences its exclusivity but before wearing this jacket, I was at a loss to imagine how supple such thick leather could ever be. The workmanship is second to none. It is clear that the jacket is built to last by experienced sewers who are obsessed with their work. The brass hardware is not only robust but also, dignifiedly understated. When wearing my jacket; neither I feel like advertising a brand with huge logos, nor do I feel like wearing a glittering stage dress.
Functionality wise; the built-in armor pockets are invaluable for me, no matter how thick the leather is. Their absence would be a deal breaker. The removable long sleeved thermal liner adds versatility against changing weather conditions. Also removable, an adjustable neck warmer buttons up to this liner. It is very comfortable for the skin and it does a great job in sealing out the wind, when desired. The vents effectively cool in warm weather. I felt quite comfortable when cruising at 25⁰C (77⁰F) with a long sleeved mid-weight base layer, w/o the thermal liner and with the vents open. I reckon I could go up to about 30-32⁰C (86-90⁰F) with an evaporative cooling base layer as long as I keep moving but naturally, thick black leather is not just the ticket for hot weather. I was also comfortable when riding for 4 hours at 4⁰C (39⁰F) with the same base layer only, with the thermal liner and neck warmer zipped and buttoned up, respectively. At sub-freezing temps, I prefer my heated jacket liner instead of the Fox Creek Jacket’s thermal liner for ease of temperature regulation but it is clear that even some sub-freezing conditions are within the temp range of this jacket with just a base layer plus a single mid layer.
I am 202cm (6’7”) tall and I weigh 105kg (231lb). Size 46 Tall snugly fits my 114cm (44.88”) chest and 113cm (44.49”) stomach, does not expose my wrists and gets even better as the leather breaks-in. It does not actually need a break-in period because it is so supple but it still gets nicely broken-in as it creases and wrinkles through use. On that note, it is an excellent off the bike jacket as well. Since the CE certified shoulder, elbow and back armors I have placed are not particularly noticeable, this jacket would befit ATGATT motorcyclists who do not like to make a robotic appearance. Frankly, I do not have a fashion leather jacket that is as stylish to wear at a bar, or café, or diner, etc...
I paid international shipment plus 20% customs fees in order to get this jacket to Turkey and I feel this was money well spent. Considering its quality, this jacket is still a good value for money. After all, my total cost does not exceed the base price of some alternatives with irremovable liner, w/o armor pockets and w/o vents.
This is my fourth leather motorcycle jacket since the seventies, after two generic ones made of thinner leather that barely fitted my frame and a custom made one that turned out to be too tight at my advancing age. The latter was made of as thick leather but not as supple. Thanks to Fox Creek Leathers, I did not have to go the so expensive custom made route again. Besides, there is nothing I would like to improve other than how the collar snaps when fully closed. This gets somewhat out of alignment but I can live with that. Given the distinct quality and the obvious durability of this jacket, I believe this is my last leather motorcycle jacket. With good care (I will do my very best) my grandson who is now two years old is quite likely to inherit the best timeless classic motorcycle jacket.

I have owned dozens of leather jackets over the years, from an hand-me-down bomber that I wore for 20 years to a couple of Harley branded jackets. But all my life I lusted for the 50s biker jacket -- think The Wild Ones, Grease, and so on. You know, THAT jacket.
After much research and agonizing, I narrowed it down to a Schott Perfecto (can't go wrong with the original) and the Fox Creek Classic. I couldn't decide, so in a late night shopping accident I bought the Perfecto from Revzilla. I gotta tell you, that jacket is everything I thought it could be. Heavy, dull leather with beautifully chromed snaps and heavy-duty zippers. This thing creaks smugly when you move as befits such thick leather. But after wearing it around the house, I began to notice a few things I didn't like. It's short. And tight. Maybe 40 years ago it would have worked for me, but at 60 with a dad belly, it pulls up with the slightest movement. Also, where the sleeves zip is full-thickness leather, so it bunched up against my wrist in a never ending annoyance. With sadness, I sent it back and ordered the Fox Creek Classic.
Oh my! Love the heavy thick leather and the antique brass is much more understated than the bright chrome hardware on the Schott. The zip out liner and detachable collar is a very nice touch (the Schott is lined but not removable), and the lace sides match my leather vest as well as give that dad belly a little breathing room should I need it. The extra length, especially in the back, are very welcome.
This jacket is nearly perfect, with only a few minor gripes. First of all, the belt is just a bit too skinny; another 1/2" would give it the rugged look that this jacket commands. Even more of an issue with me is the sew-in belt keeper is way too close to the buckle; it should be 3" away rather than the 1.5" to keep the end of the belt from flapping around so much. Finally, I REALLY loved the dull sheen of the Schott leather. The leather on both jackets is of equal weight and quality, but the slight shine on the Fox Creek leather somehow detracts from the look.
This jacket isn't going anywhere -- unless Fox Creek decides they can do something about the belt! I love this jacket.

This is the best and most beautiful leather jacket I've ever owned. It fits like a glove and the craftsmanship is superb - I'll have it forever and recommend Fox Creek Leather to all my friends.
