This is a vintage 60s Swedish Military Motorcycle Jacket. A rare bit of military kit that has the ultimate utilitarian look. The jacket was uniquely created for motorcyclists within the Swedish military. It’s exactly why it's as bold as brass and as sturdy as a military kit comes. It’s able to beat the harsh cold as well as the unrelenting wind and it looks top drawer. It comes equipped with reinforced elbows, one large chest patch pocket as well as a multitude of button fastenings. The jacket also features the three Crowns (Swedish: Tre Kronor) stamped inside, which is the national emblem of Sweden. Jacket dated 1961.
Used and in good vintage condition with general signs of wear, abrasion and discolouration which gives it a cracking washed and worn look. The jacket is missing the original liner. Freshly steamed and ready for a new owner.
All our vintage listings unless otherwise stated are true vintage and have been worn before, therefore they will typically show signs of wear, which is all part of the vintage look and appeal.

HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR SIZE: Please DO NOT solely rely on the listed size for your correct fit. Designers often use different measurements for sizes depending on the overall look they desire, so sizes can not only vary brand to brand but also within the same brand. Also, for vintage and pre-worn items the shape may have changed after years of being worn. The best way to ensure your correct fit is to compare the measurements listed to a similar item that fits you well.
