The Ashbee takes after the leather jackets worn by post-war British motorcyclists who raced from cafe to cafe, where alcohol was served at each stop.

These "cafe racers" would strive for speeds in excess of 100 kph as they rallied across the south English countryside.


Inspired by the cafe racer jackets but built for daily wear, the Ashbee is cut without a forward lean and extends beyond the waist for a more comfortable and casual appearance.

A clean shoulder line and tapered waist enhance the wearer's silhouette, while simple features such as welt pockets are intended to increase the jacket's versatility.
