Motorcycle Chic This Mother's Day

Are you one of the thousands of women who ride motorcycles? Or do you love the look of motorcycle gear? Or do you just need a new leather jacket or boots? Maybe you’re a man looking for that special gift for the “mom” in your life—whether she’s your own mother, or the mother of your children, or a woman who’s been like a mother to you.

In any case, you are invited to see Motorcycle Chic at its best at a Fashion Show at the Eagle Leather store in Lakewood on April 27. It will start at 6 p.m. (If you’re a model, come fifteen minutes early.)

Let’s take a look at example ensembles that we would term “Motorcycle Chic.” Start with the Favorite, a sheepskin jacket with a snap-closed mandarin collar. It’s fully lined and has one pocket on the chest and two at the hips. Snap closures at the waist and wrists let you combine comfort with fit. And the long front zipper and rich detailing on the seams lend elegance. Now, imagine this paired with Black Fleece-Lined Jeggings and Studded Harness Boots. The jeggings are lined and have pockets front and back. The boots are 10 inches high with a 3.5-inch heel. The have a comfort-cushion insole and a soft toe. They are durable, with reinforced stitching, so you can wear them riding and be fashionable. Complete the look with a Link Bracelet, shown here in black with clear stones.

The Traci jacket is made for comfort as well as style. It’s made of sheepskin and has a zip-out liner. The classic trench-coat style has a high, belted waist. Two pockets at the hips and two on the chest are zipped. The sleeves are slashed, so you can turn them back for a more casual look. With the Traci jacket, you might wear jeans and boots like the 20 inch Heeled Boot. The boots have a side zipper. They are practical as well as stylish with oil-resistant outsoles and reinforced stitching.

Wear the Traci jacket with Deerskin Driver gloves, shown here in brown. These soft, supple gloves are unlined and are, perhaps, the most comfortable gloves you’ll ever wear. Around your neck (and going over your head in inclement weather) wear the Stars and Stripes Infinity Scarf.

You’ll feel like a movie star in the Elle jacket. It has a fox-fur collar and is made of sheepskin. It flaunts that trench-coat look and has a removable buckled belt. The sleeves have snap closures. With two zippered pockets on the side and one snap-closed pocket, the elegant seaming screams luxury. We can imagine this jacket with jeans or a long skirt. And for boots, how about these 13-inch boots with a side pocket and comfort cushioned insole. They lace up the front. Complete the look with sunglasses. We carry them in many styles, such as the Chicago 24 Smoke. They are practical as well as fashionable, with a UV400 filter and scratch resistant coating. You’ll feel like a celebrity in an ensemble like this.

That’s just a taste of what you might see, and imagine yourself wearing, at the Mother’s Day Fashion Show. You can make your own purchases or point and nudge if you’ve got the fella with you. Or, you can enter the items you like on a wish list and let him choose from that. Our expert staff will help you plan your foray into Motorcycle Chic.
