John Elliot joins forces with leather expert Blackmeans on a collection of leather rider jackets for the season complete in a unique detailing. The classic leather jacket design features the doubler rider model and the collaborative effort brings forth details such as painted layers and distressed accents.

The colorway options feature either ivory or blue and the designs are carefully crafted by hand in Japan, ensuring that it stays true to Blackmeans' standard of intricacy. The leather is finished with a coat of unique paint treatment for added protection. The result gives off a crackled exterior due to the careful paint job with additional elements such as zippered pockets, cuffs, quilted lining, epaulets, and shoulder gussets.
