The name's Plissken... Okay, maybe it's not but we can dream. This jacket might turn your alter ego into Snake though, there's no guarantees!
We took inspiration from the 1981 hit, "Escape from New York" and decided to replicate the main character's jacket to create a beautiful, distressed, biker jacket. The jacket pictured is made in pre-distressed cowhide, this is one of our most popular leathers, it's soft, very durable and sports a great distressed/vintage look. This suits this biker style jacket very well as it's protective but very comfortable rather than some of the stiffer leathers you can get these days.
The jacket itself is an aviator style jacket, it has a tapered waist and side straps to pull it in further however it is more of a comfort fit (often worn open) so it's not what we'd call a "slim fit" - these are generally smarter, more tailored looking jackets like the Layer Cake. Not your bad-ass Snake jacket! The tapered waist and the room in the chest means you'll get plenty of room for movement but will still have a close-fitting jacket.

My personal favorite
I really like the fit of this jacket. The description given in the introduction is spot on, and the range of arm movement it allows is amazing. I ordered this jacket in horsehide, and its style and durability are sure to make it my favorite for years to come. Wested also accommodated me on numerous customizations: a second inside pocket, both inside pockets zipped, coin pocket snap underlaid, main zip reversed, button added to the lapel, and indy style cuffs; these of course cost a bit extra but still at a very reasonable price.
Looking for my ultimate leather jacket I went to Wested, I didn't get it, what I got is something much, much better. I love my new jacket, it looks great, fits perfectly, is made of quality materials and has superb features that I hadn't even thought of. The staff couldn't have been more helpful or friendly. I would absolutely recommend this shop.
I purchased this jacket in brown horsehide and could not be happier with it. The fit is great, the screen accuracy is spot-on and the leather is just gorgeous. I’ve wanted a Snake Plissken jacket for years and I’m glad I chose Wested. Thank you.
