Additional Information: 
In the early 1950s, a unique Swedish Dispatch Motorcycle 'Prototype' Jacket made its debut. Constructed from robust cotton fabric, this jacket served as an economical and warmer substitute for conventional leather dispatch jackets. Surprisingly, it never saw widespread production. Just a few years later, a fresh design surfaced in forest green cotton, featuring a detachable synthetic liner, further enhancing cost-effectiveness and suitability as a jacket choice.

Use & Care

Care for your vintage items

You can machine wash most cotton & cotton blend products in 40 degrees celcius / 104 degrees fahrenheit.

Wool products should preferably be hand washed. Machine wash at your own risk.

Remember that the items we offer have been used previously and that some are more fragile (depending on age and condition). Always have that in mind before washing.

Vintage leather products should hang in dry areas and should be conditioned regularly to avoid cracks. 

Note that we do not take responsibility for any product that got damaged when worn or washed.

Mint - Flawless, little to no signs or wear
