Thumbs up Custom Moto Corse / Kushitani Leathers-Jacket

Threw my hat in for the first series of Moto Corse / Kushitani Apparel. Was a set of gloves, jacket, trousers, boots, but available in pieces. I went for the jacket and boots.

The vision was for something to be casual, but look good enough to be around town in, if that is where one finds oneself after a ride. The jacket, specifically, was meant to go with jeans.

Was a limited set of 30 being produced.... I took delivery of the jacket in the box, the boots are still on the way. The basic design was a kushitani jacket I could try on for size, but was customized to fit the vision, like moving buttons around, pockets, etc. a bit.

I'll need to upgrade some of the armor in the jacket I think, we'll see. First, I need to see what I need to do to make it a bit more 'weather' protected, I'm guessing treating the leather would be a good idea. Will have to stop by the kushitani shop and ask....

So here it is....


Out of the box....




All stitching done in red. There is a red jacket option, which is totally red with ivory color stitching. I liked the ivory better, myself.



Button was moved inside the collar, as it looks better that way. The neck lining is red, since dudes sweat, and the light color would get a bit manky after a short while....


Italian flag was an option. Thought it looked cool. The other option was a full color leather MV logo, which was a lot more.... The flag opens it up to other Italian brands, eh?

So what's this "08" all about?

What does size "LL" equate to in USA measurements? Large/long? Nice jacket!

not cheap.... the regular kushitani jacket I think is over a grand (in USD). This one was a bit more, towards, but under, 2000. Of course, the weak dollar makes it look more expensive than it would have 3 years ago, but around that range.

good question.

sometimes it means 2L, like XL. But the gloves that match it are LL and XL, with XL being bigger.

Usually suits that have height/width will have a "/" in it here, so LL/LL or similar.
