Pattern of the Week: Throttle Moto Jacket

Inspired by classic leather motorcycle jackets, the Throttle Moto Jacket is perfect for days you aren’t on the road (we strongly encourage everyone to wear a leather jacket while riding a motorcycle). This jacket is the layering piece you need to cope with spring’s many moods. Striped linen stitch creates the woven-looking pattern, and the finishing zipper, pockets, and snaps elevate the jacket to motorcycle-worthy status.
