Oxford (07 March 2012) - Every 13 weeks, Harley-Davidson introduces a limited edition clothing selection to its MotorClothes® range – something that no other motorcycle manufacturer has the resource or design clout to achieve. These collections are timed to coincide with the four seasons of: Spring, Summer, Fall (Autumn to us Brits) and Holiday (Winter).
And the news just in – good news to boot – the Spring season range of Harley-Davidson clothing is now available at your local dealer. But, as said, it is a limited run of what is essentially designer wear. So, be quick to view the new must have clothing and accessories before it’s too late. As with any limited edition, not all dealers have the vast choice available and if they have, the stock that they have chosen is not re-orderable – when it’s gone, it’s gone!
Here is just a selection of what is available…
Spring collection – for him
Trenton Leather Jacket
Brown is the new black this spring. Although new, the Trenton jacket has a vintage leather look compounded by rows of heavy stitching. It’s a riding jacket that does casual very easily.
The inside lining is a comfort mix of 65% polyester and 35% cotton with a poly-twill sleeve lining in the slightly pre-curved arms for ease of fit over underclothes. Internal pockets on the elbows and shoulders allow for fitment of body armour. The mandarin-style collar closes by way of a heavy-duty branded pop-stud fastener and the metal-toothed zip closes all the way to the collar to stop draughts. Cuffs and two hand pockets on the outside are also zip-closing. There are also two inner pockets for valuables, phone etc. A discreet branded metal badge on the left chest tells the fashion conscious this is another fabulous Harley-Davidson product.
S.W.A.T Functional Jacket
Functional by name and truly functional in style in the way it suits touring and custom Harley riders. With a make-up of 80% polyester, 18% nylon, 2% spandex and a novel removable, full-sleeve waterproof liner, this is a seriously comfortable, warm or cool water resistant jacket.
Not only is there a zipped front and cuffs, but the cuffs are also adjustable for size and the mandarin-style collar comes with a zip-off removable hood. Other features on this jacket are: body armour pockets in the elbow, shoulder and back areas, stretch panels at elbows and shoulders, mesh grommets on sleeves for airflow, stretch Cordura side panels with adjustable tabs, two zip-close hand pockets, two interior pockets, and a MP3 player pocket for music on the go. 3M® Scotchlite Reflective piping aids visibility to other road users. Leather appliqué graphics adorn the back of the jacket.
Spring collection – for her
Chic Mesh and Leather Jacket
As modern and stylish as a spring Paris fashion show, the Chic Mesh and Leather jacket is truly stylish and very individual. Made up from a lightweight leather and poly-mesh combination with stretchy Cordura at elbows and side panels, the jacket also has a comfort Poly-mesh lining. Body armour pockets feature on elbows and shoulders while the cuffs, two front pockets (two inside pockets as well) and front opening are zip fastened. Impressive sewn on leather binding appears around the neck, cuffs and hem. This Harley-Branded jacket rightly deserves the ‘chic’ tag.
Contoured Boot Cut Jeans
The Contoured Boot Cut Jeans would command big money in fashion houses but are very much affordable at your local dealer.
Made from 99% cotton and 1% spandex, these classic lightly distressed denim, five-pocket jeans are contoured through the hip and comfort fit around the thigh areas. The legs incorporate 20-inch boot cut openings with a very slight flare. Printed metallic graphics go hand in hand with rhinestone decoration on the smaller coin pocket and rear left pocket.
Size-wise these classy jeans are available with 30/32/34-inch inseams, with waist sizes ranging from Petite 4-22, Regular 4-28 and the famed Harley-Davidson Tall sizing (about an inch and a bit extra in all areas) of 4-22.
