Men's Classic Motorcycle Jackets are the most emotionally volatile and historically rich leather 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 leather motorcycle jacket. At the time, I did not understand the social implications of the leather 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.
In addition to parental alienation, the Men's Classic I Jacket is well suited for motorcycle riding. It's cut extra long in the back with a padded kidney panel. Dual front and rear vents move the air easily through a mesh shell while an internal wind flap stops it cold at the zipper. A zip out full sleeve insulated liner means this motorcycle jacket is perfect for hot and cold weather riding.
Side lacing enables you to contour the leather motorcycle jacket to your body and an inside snap pocket is set in the leather facing where it won't rip out. Leather is 1.4 to 1.6 mm soft, thick and supple with a dull luster.
The difference between the Men's Classic Motorcycle Jacket I and Men's Classic Motorcycle Jacket II is that the Men's Classic Motorcycle Jacket I has a watch pocket and breast pocket on the left side and a half belt in front. Outside of that they are the same leather 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.
Soft and Tuff!
Posted by Diego7979 on Jun 4th 2017
I have had many jackets over the past 2 years of riding but I can tell already, this is the real deal! The leather is thick and soft but the look is tuff enough! Don't just ride, be the boss with this jacket!
44 years a Harley my sole transportation
Posted by Michael Williams on Jun 1st 2017
As you would think, been through a lot of leather biker jackets in 44 years, and this is the first time I ever took the time to recommended anything, but it definitely deserves it, all those reviews I read are true, I am so exceedingly glad I bought it. I just got it and I compared it to the Harley jacket I have hanging in my closet and the heavier weight difference of the Fox Creek leather jacket is in The heavy weight class and the Harley leather biker jacket is in the featherweight class, even the Foxcreek jacket is a true black compared to the Harley jacket, that does not have the features like the Fox Creek, in the old-school traditional leather biker jacket but made with intelligence the sleeve zippers are not noticeable and the thickness of things like the lapel and the collar are noticeably thicker and the body is a little thicker than the Harley jacket. No flaws whatsoever in the leather and it fit perfect body and sleeves. I highly recommend their leather jacket, and in fact this will be my sole Jacket as long as I shall live. It has beat out every other jacket hands down, and I don't take this lightly when I put my recommendation on a product, you will be very very pleased as I was. And I want to thank the other people who convinced me by their comments they weren't kidding. It's summer here so I cannot comment on it's warmth except to say I tried it on for 45 seconds with the liner and I couldn't get it off fast enough, I started to sweat in my air-conditioned trailer
Mens classic 1

Have about 40 + years riding exp. Have owned Wilson's, Harley re-brands and others. Not saying they're bad, but this jacket leaves them in the dust. Zippers high quality. Leather thick and supple. Its heavy hardware. Cool tucked away face wrap. I ran with just 2 CE armors in the elbows only. American made, lifetime guarantee AND customer service second to none. I'm in. Melinda is the greatest. This company is 100 % recommended by me.
Better than I ever dreamed
Posted by Stephen Cummins on May 26th 2017
After being off bikes for 20 years I got the itch again. Would you believe it, my 40 year old jacket shrunk. Looked everywhere for another like it. Found plenty to choose from. Came across FC on a late night search. Was inpressed by the reviews and the Classic I, even though more than what I wanted to spend, looked like the ticket.
The ladies were very helpful with the order and my jacket came fast. First impression was WOW ......... everything I'd read was way to underrating. I wanted to wear it to bed, but, the 48 was small.
Called the next day to explain the problem and found folks who do biz the old fashion way. A mans word is his bond. Just received a 50 and a 52 to try for fit. Send the other two back.
Now got to decide between these two beauties. Can I have them both mom, please..........

The leather was as supple as advertised and fit perfectly. I recommend calling Fox Creek as I did to get a comfort level that the sizing is correct. The lady was friendly and knowledgible. Solid zippers and snaps.
WOW! 9lbs of leather!
Posted by James S. on Mar 10th 2017
I just received my jacket! WOW! 9lbs of leather! Feels custom made. I really appreciate the customer service with the call. Finally a jacket that I will have for the rest of my life. I may even ask to be buried in this versus my Military uniform, but that would be a shame not to pass down. Thanks again and God bless!
Great Motorcycle Jacket
Posted by John Cline on Mar 6th 2017
I had bought a Fox Creek Jacket for my wife back in 2004 and have been waiting for my old jacket to finally wear out so that I upgrade to this grade of leather jacket. My old jacket was durable and lasted until this year. There is no comparison to the quality of leather this product delivers. I look forward to many rides ahead trying to wear it out.
