Steve McQueen Le-man CREAM LE MAN Leather Jacket
Rarely does a new model cause such a powerful and positive echo the way this 100% smooth hand picked top grade soft cowhide jacket with its characteristic stripes and logo stitching from the noble clock label HEUER did. The red quilted stain lining creates a great contrast to the cream, robust antiquated leather.
Style: In the style of the famous cream colored leather jacket worn so naturally by Steve McQueen in Le-Mans. Why not have one of these in your arsenal and wear out when you really want to show off a vintage cool look and get noticed.
Leather has a long tradition, whether with the car or home interior or since beginning of the 20th century in the clothing branch. The leather GP Racing unites in ideally both primary virtues of leather: as a protective clothing by the robust cowhide leather and as a stylish piece of jewellery by great design

YOU CAN ADD KANGAROO LEATHER TO ANY CUSTOM JACKET, TROUSER OR SUIT ORDER
You can only purchase the Kangaroo leather upgrade as a add-on (upgrade) for a regular order
0.9/1.0 mm thick top grain kangaroo leather specifically tanned for racing leather suits.
Of the many species of Kangaroo, many are protected in their habitat. However the unchecked reproduction of the largest breed has resulted in massive over-population and regular culls are carried out under the supervision of the Australian authorities allowing for free trade access to the best leather hide available on the market
Kangaroo leather is far more abrasion resistant than cowhide of the same thickness (check wiki facts here) and offers an incredible lightness and softness, perfect for those riders seeking the very best comfort and mobility for their races. This is because unlike cows and buffalo, Kangaroos only sweat through their tails and therefore there are no pores in the hide. Special tanning and drying methods mean kangaroo hide is resilient to moisture and so less likely to loose its shape or degrade over time
Kangaroo reaches 800 revolutions on the Martindale machine (P180 Sandpaper), while the tear strength is 80 N.
