Speed 6 Biker
Availability: In stock
Brand: John Partridge
A classic Staffordshire design, and still made here.
Our original motor sport four pocket classic, today is slightly slimmer with a more streamlined fit and feel.
Like all waxed cotton it is both breathable and water resistant.
Best worn as an all-round fashion jacket the Speed Six will look as good in twenty five years as it does today.
Two way front zip
Four outside pockets with shiny brass studs
Stand up collar lined with cord
Padded shoulders with lower studded bellows pockets (they expand as you fill them) and slightly smaller bellows chest upper pockets. The Speed Six Biker is ideal for town and country wear. Made in our own Staffordshire factory.
The outer fabric is either a heavy weight or a medium weight waxed cotton fabric made in Britain. Pure cotton treated with natural waxes, to give a rich and deep finish in both plain and camouflage colours. This fabric is strong and very water resistant. It keeps its look and requires only an occasional treatment with a light spray wax. The inner fabric is cotton with JP Check.
Internally there us a single wallet pocket which is closed with our special Partridge enamel stud. Adjustable belt at the neck and a full length, two way zip- this allows the wearer to keep the jacket on whilst driving and releasing the zip from wither top or bottom.
Inside the jacket we show our classic flying birds back neck label, our short history label, our makers label and our wax cotton fabric label.
Little known fact- the camouflage finish has different finishes. Our traditional Camo Rustic design is printed in one process and then wax is applied to both sides of the fabric, before being pressed through a series of rollers to force the wax into every fibre, and to give a dry handle.
Camo Sage and Camo Navy have the initial print applied and then are overdyed with extra dye to create a more subtle design- not quite camo and not distressed- but certainly subtle.
