When it comes to motorcycle apparel, quality is about much more than just fashion, staying warm, or added protection, which is why the way it’s made is essential. First Manufacturing Co. has been making leather goods for motorcyclists the traditional method for over 30 years. Their line of motorcycle jackets, gloves, and accessories are made with care, while new product lines are road-tested by a team of riders before they hit shelves.
It’s that kind of passion for riding gear that has been driving the company since it was first launched in New York City in 1987. Today, First Manufacturing Co.’s custom leather vests, leather jackets and the rest of their lineup of motorcycle gear are still hand-crafted. And since they know that leatherware is only as good as the leather it’s made of, they source their raw hides direct from butchers. From there, each hide gets transformed into their safe and stylish motorcycle apparel over a multi-day process. It’s this kind of attention to detail that sets First Manufacturing Co.’s motorcycle gear apart, and all products are backed by a lifetime guarantee for zippers, snaps, and stitching.
Their considerable lineup also includes canvas and denim motorcycle apparel, but it’s their leather that is the true star. There are more than a dozen different styles and types of leather jackets to choose from for men and women. Designed to be comfortable both on and off the bike, First Mfg products are designed with both fit and function top of mind.
The Raider is a banded collar, scooter-style jacket that features covered snaps, a cropped center zipper, two buttoned slash pockets, two vented chest pockets, two buttoned chest pockets and eight hidden utility pockets. Or check out the Commuter jacket, which has padded shoulders and forearms. It also has vented chest pockets, zippered sleeves, and a zippered vented action back. Nearly all First Mfg jackets have concealed carry pockets and pockets for CE-2 armor to help prevent injury in case of an accident.
There’s also a wide selection of denim wear for men and women, and First Manufacturing Co. makes an attractive selection of denim and canvas vests that should fit any style. Compliment your new vest or motorcycle jacket with a great selection of cloth or leather gloves. And, of course, they also have a great selection of leather saddlebags to make your bike look just as good as you do.
If you can’t find the exact jacket you’re looking for, or you just want custom liners, logos, and/or stitching, First Mfg also provides a full custom-build experience. Order a custom leather vest or jacket, and pick out everything from the material to the stitching, colors, and liner. Pick your liner image from one of their pre-designed photos, or send in your own custom image for an altogether one-of-a-kind look.
