When it comes to solid, good-looking leather motorcycle jackets, Roland Sands Design is fast making a name for themselves as a force to be reckoned with. They’ve developed a line of jackets that have shoulder, elbow and back armour pockets – allowing owners to kit the jacket out for serious riding, or remove the armour and wear it on a night out on the town.
Each of the Domino jackets are made from RSD Limited Set hand-finished, washed and waxed cowhide (with a main body leather thickness of 1.2mm). It has a satin-poly lining, perforated leather interior trim, a soft-lined electronics security pocket, stretch mesh cargo “stuff” pockets, a zip close interior chest pocket, zip close cuffs, a shoulder snap pocket and snap close front pockets.
From a style perspective the Domino has a classic early-70s look that’ll remain cool no matter what decade you’re living in, the fact that it can be worn on or off your motorbike makes it a good investment.
