Comment: Great jacket. I love it. I wanted something with a vintage look to it that still fit me well, which I like a slim fit. I'm 6'1" and weigh about 160 (tall skinny dude) and the medium is great. The arms are definitely long enough, they are a bit tight with the liner if you're wearing long sleeves under. The forearms are where I would worry about fit. The jacket is definitely a slim fit, and the arms are no exception. Great for me, could be an issue for any Popeyes looking for a jacket.
Leather is good quality. It came in the mail while I was at work and I asked my wife if it smelled good and she said it smelled like "cow hide"... She was way off! Buffalo hide haha.
Outside zippers are strong and zip great. The zipper for the liner seems a little weak.
The jacket is relatively comfortable. I only ever wear it riding so its fine. I was very surprised when I tried it in for the first time. For a less-expensive jacket I expected the leather to be quite a bit stiffer. But it is soft, thick, beautiful leather. The collar strap is uncomfortable and I always unbutton it as soon as I'm off the bike, and I really don't notice it when I'm riding. But I think the leather still needs be broken in at bit more, and it will only get better with age.
Overall I would definitely recommend this jacket. It is a great jacket, good fit. It should last me a long time. And for the price it doesn't get much better.
Great Looks. Great Price
Comment: Great looking jacket that arrived as scheduled and as I expected. Fit is good and the size chart made it right the first time.
The 8021 leather jacket is my favorite non armored Detour jacket. It’s made
of dark brown top grain naked buffalo leather with a patina to it and I’m
telling you, this leather is awesome. The full aniline treatment keeps this
leather butter soft, and really works well with the large grain of buffalo. The
beige rally stripes really complete the retro look. This jacket is definitely
getting added to the personal collection. This jacket isn’t just handsome,
though. It performs on the bike as well. Now, it isn’t armored, so I certainly
wouldn’t put it in the touring jacket category, but as a bar hopper this thing
The 8021 is available in sizes medium to 4X, and the fit is accurate as per the
size chart on the listing. My boy Billy B.A., here, is 5’10” 160 and fits in
this medium perfectly.
The 8021 offers a ton of ventilation, with zippered vents, that also work as
pockets, on the chest, and more vents on the sleeves and on the back. While
we’re on the back you can see that
Detour has kept the
back of this jacket very simple which gives you the opportunity to get a real
good look at the quality of the leather. It really looks great.
The main closure features a brass looking all metal YKK zipper, and a single
snap Euro style collar. Opening the jacket up reveals the removable quilted
thermal liner that is flanked by this hidden zippered pocket. Unzipping the
liner, allows you to see the fixed mesh liner. This liner improves mobility and
comfort by giving you a breathable layer of material between your skin and the
