Introducing ‘The McNicol’, the first leather jacket to carry The Bike Shed brand name. To create the jacket we’ve always wanted to wear ourselves, we partnered with London-based brand and long-time ‘Shed favourite, Goldtop, who produce fantastic quality leather bike gear at fair prices. This is a hero piece we intend to keep producing for years to come and we hope you like it as much as we do.The 1.4mm Aniline cowhide ‘McNicol’ takes inspiration from the classic, belted, ¾ length four-pocket jackets of old, but tailored to a more ride-friendly length. Flap pockets do away with exterior patching to streamline the silhouette while quilted shoulder panels and a mandarin collar give enough details without being over-designed.Both chest pockets feature a YKK zip to complement our custom BSMC stainless steel snaps, while the lower pockets are simply flapped with twin-snap closure. The 5-snap ‘placket’ (look that up on Google) conceals a heavy weight YKK zip with a bespoke BSMC puller. The lowest snap is concealed to protect your tank. The cuff inserts and inside collar-stand are lined with a colour-matched buttery-soft suede. The dark burgundy quilted lining houses pockets for the included CE level 1 Knox Microlock shoulder, elbow and back armour, plus two extra stash chest-pockets for valuables, the left with a zip. The McNicol is named in memory of one of our Bike Shed founders, Neil McNicol. His outspoken, often rude and thoroughly inappropriate sense of humour would fill the club with raucous laughter, and he put a smile on the faces of all who were lucky enough to meet him. He also looked very smart in his Goldtop Bobber jacket, and we'd wager he would have carried-off his namesake jacket with equal aplomb. …Cheers Neil.
