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.

  1. Men's Classic Motorcycle Jacket I 5 Star Review

    Posted by 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!

  2. Quality jacket 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Nov 22nd 2017

    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.
    Happy customer;

  3. Men's Classic Motorcycle jacket 1 5 Star Review

    Posted by 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.

  4. The Best Timeless Classic 5 Star Review

    Posted by 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.

  5. Amazing jacket! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Oct 6th 2017

    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.

  7. Soft and Tuff! 5 Star Review

    Posted by 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!

  8. 44 years a Harley my sole transportation 5 Star Review

    Posted by 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

  9. Mens classic 1 5 Star Review

    Posted by on May 30th 2017

    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.

  10. Better than I ever dreamed 5 Star Review

    Posted by 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..........
