Get tough with a vintage LEATHER MOTORCYCLE JACKET from Metropolis Vintage

We here at METROPOLIS VINTAGE love a good leather jacket. A well-fitting MC jacket is cool, timeless look iconicized by James Dean, The Ramones, and many others.  We’ve got a heavy rack of leather here in our store, only a few blocks away from the famous spot behind CBGB where The Ramones posed for the cover of their first LP. Although Johnny’s the only one rocking a true motorcycle jacket for that one. Fun fact: John Holmstrom of Punk Magazine and Ramones illustration fame recently designed our store logo. At any rate, stop by and slap on a classic leather motorcycle jacket before the weather gets cold. We strive to find all sizes, including smaller ones which are always in high demand and the quickest to fly off the shelves. Get tough!
