In 1994, Volcoms first team jacket was created. Founder; Richard Woolcott had taken his own leather riders jacket and customised it. Now, almost twenty years later, Volcom have teamed up with Schott to announce an all new YAE riders jacket.
Schott; who are celebrating their 100th anniversary, have based the new riders on their own 626 lightweight vintage cowhide motorcycle jacket. Volcom have customised the piece with stone studs, replacing the traditional one star epaulets on the shoulder. Custom white leather collars, sleeve gussets and a hand screened Anarchy ‘A’ logo on the orange cotton lining have all also been added giving the jacket those nice finishing touches.
These limited edition riders are low in numbers with only 50 of the total 200 units being sold in the UK. Priced at £899 and available at www.volcom.com, you’d better get your hands on these quick.
