Shangri-La Heritage

Shangri-La - “Stelvio” Melton Wool Dispatch Rider Coat - Forest Green.

Early on, we were the only brand carrying leathers from Shangri-La in America. Since then, they've been very good at growing their brand slowly in America and we're now one of a very few with a selection in their leather goods (and more). These guys trust us to represent the brand in America and we appreciate them thoroughly for that. We simply can't pass up Melton wool. We've yet to love another wool quite like this. It's soft and sturdy, with a hardy composition that makes it warm as hell. Then, you add on all the Shangri-La details listed below and you have something special. They never disappoint. With Shangri-la, it's like they have a fly on the wall for every conversation that ends in "I love this jacket, but it would be so much better if they added 'x'." They always think of 'x.' They never leave out the details you didn't know you wanted. The leather collar extension is the most glaring on this incredible coat.

Inspired by late 10s Dispatch Rider coats from the First World War and revisited with a unique Italian touch, the “Stelvio” Dispatch Rider Coat represents an authentic garment made of heavy Italian Melton Wool 26 Oz in Forest Green color, with leather trimmings made with vegetable tanned Lambskin from Tuscany. A double-breasted front provided an additional layer of protection to the chest, with a storm flap designed to keep water away from the body. The most distinctive feature of the coat, however, remains the slanted chest “Map” pocket used by the dispatch riders to carry messages. The lining is made of “Espresso Coffee” color viscose, and the leather collar-tab closes the neck to keep you warm during winter and cold trips.
Shangri-La - “Explorator” Leather Jacket - Black.

Early on, we were the only brand carrying leathers from Shangri-La in America. Since then, they've been very good at growing their brand slowly in America and we're now one of a very few with a selection in their leather goods. These guys trust us to represent the brand in America and we appreciate them thoroughly for that. This jacket instantly brought out our inner nostalgia. This style jacket was all over our childhood in the late '80s and early '90s. It's clearly a much earlier inspiration than that, but all styles make a comeback. We're hedging our bet that this will give you that same nostalgia tingle that we don't often get from pieces of earlier time periods. Maybe it won't, regardless is one of the baddest jackets in our lineup and would instantly upgrade your wardrobe to a level hardly which hardly anyone could compete.

Inspired by late 40s British motorcycle jackets and revisited with a unique Italian touch, the “Explorator” Black Leather Jacket represents an authentic garment made of vegetable tanned, drum dyed, top grain Lambskin from Tuscany (Italy). The lining is made of “Desert Sand” color 100% cotton, and the collar-tab closes the neck to keep you warm during winter and cold trips.
Shangri-La - “Aviatore” B-3 Seal Shearling Jacket - Brown.

Since then, they've been very good at growing their brand slowly in America and we're now one of a very few with a selection in their leather goods. These guys trust us to represent the brand in America and we appreciate them thoroughly for that. This B-3 was an instant "yes" when we saw it on the line sheets. Compared to ones we've seen and touched in the past, this one blows them out of the water. The shearling sheepskin is absolutely luxurious and feels like a blanket on the body. This will be your warmest and most stylish jacket. Most of the time B-3's are built to spec, meaning they are usually huge on everyone. It's nice to see one that is more tailored. There is also something that always gets us about leather jackets Made in Italy. It just feels right.

Inspired by early 40s type B-3 Flight jackets from the Second World War and revisited with a unique Italian touch, the “Aviatore” B-3 Shearling Jacket represents an authentic garment made of Italian Shearling Sheepskin reinforced with leather trimmings in vegetable tanned Lambskin from Tuscany (Italy). The Shearling Sheepskin is the perfect natural insulator for cold weather. The soft sheep wool encases your body, ensuring maximum body warmth retention and at the same time wicking away excess moisture when the body generates it.
Shangri-La - "Chiodo" Horsehide Leather Jacket - Black.

Early on, we were the only brand carrying leathers from Shangri-La in America. Since then, they've been very good at growing their brand slowly in America and we're now one of a very few with a selection in their leather goods. These guys trust us to represent the brand in America and we appreciate them thoroughly for that. This season, we've gone hard and as far as giving specifications on the grade of leather we want. The green liner on this blew us away. They've really stepped up their game with this latest series and we're excited as hell to have it.

Inspired by 1950s Motorcycle jackets and revisited with a unique Italian touch, the “Chiodo” Whisky Horsehide Leather Jacket represents an authentic garment made of Front Quarter Pull-up Horsehide by Charles F. Stead, one of the oldest tanneries in the UK (since 1890s in Leeds, United Kingdom). The Front Quarter Pull-up Horsehide by Charles F. Stead is made by selected European Full Grain horse hides tanned with Steads’ traditional garment tannage and finished with a blend of “classic pull-up” waxes. This produces a pure aniline leather with a Unique Rich character. Charles F. Stead is a traditional family business established in 1895, which remained faithful to the artisanal skills, techniques, and know-how that others have forgotten, taking the time to work the leathers in the traditional way. These skills continue to live on in harmony with modern production technologies. Quality leather can never be a commoditized product, with each hide having its own characteristics, and they treat it accordingly.

These guys trust us to represent the brand in America and we appreciate them thoroughly for that. This season, we've gone hard and as far as giving specifications on the grade of leather we want. This one specifically was one we called out. We needed the most crackly, light-colored leather with the best pullup. And they delivered.

The Café is, and probably always be their best-selling jacket for us. The jacket was inspired by late 70s racing jackets but with Shangri-La's unique Italian touch. The piece is made with a nubuck steerhide from VicenzaTuscany (Italy). It also features an "Espresso Coffee" color viscose lining. You'll also notice metallic zippers made of antique brass with custom engraved markings. These bad boys are designed for bikers but can be worn by anyone looking for an heirloom jacket to wear during the cool months.
