1990s Michael Hoban USA Flag Leather Bomber Jacket

 

 

 

 

 

If you can't imagine Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison or Lenny Kravitz in anything but tight leather pants, you can thank Michael Hoban for it. Hoban was THE  guy who turned the world onto leather as a second skin - clothing the bodies of Hell's Angels, rock stars, and Hollywood royalty alike. In the 1960s, Hoban relocated his little leather shop to Grant Street in San Francisco, named the store after the district - and launched the iconic North Beach Leather. At it's height, Hoban's leather dynasty numbered 11 stores across the U.S. Said to be one of Hoban's favorite designs, his American flag jacket quickly became a sell out item during Desert Storm. Hoo-Rah. In black with red, white and blue leather, this Michael Hoban Where Mi bomber jacket features 'USA' down both sleeves, with a patchworked old glory blazing on the back.  Full length zippered front, ribbed knit waist and sleeve cuff, raglan shoulder and vertical slit pockets at the waist. Chest measures  approximately 44", sleeve length center back to end of sleeve is 34", length 24". Come on baby, let your freak flag fly. Excellent condition.  $265
