The ICON 1000 List of Demands
In an instant gratification, buy now for less world, ICON 1000
stands above the fold. We are committed to building the finest riding apparel, with true crash-ability instead of making fashion pieces to play biker.
Here are the five hallmarks that go into each and every ICON 1000 jacket - the features behind the price tag.
1. Demand Better Leather
Full-Grain is the uppermost layer of the hide, blemish free and incredibly difficult to source, only a select few hides make the grade to be incorporated into ICON 1000 Jackets. Lesser grades of leather include top or in worst case scenarios split grain - which is not suitable for a garment that is going to hit the ground.
2. Demand Better Textiles
14 oz. denim, high-grade canvas chassis's each with a proprietary Highland coating give our textile pieces bespoke touches not found elsewhere. Vintage appearance and functionality have been blended with treatments that won't smear, degrade as fast, or make a mess.
3. Demand Standard Riding Legitimacy
The line between fashion piece and riding apparel begins and ends when metal meets the road. ICON 1000 garments are designed to slide and take a hit. Shoulder
, and back
CE-rated D3O protectors are the most advanced impact protector we could find, and are in use from military to heavy industry applications - and standard in ICON 1000 product.
4. Demand Quality
Each ICON 1000 piece is painstakingly created. For example, the ICON 1000 Chapter jacket features an analine dye that goes throughout the jacket and will not fade with time, which is then hand buffed and waxed. The Associate Vest
features single-needle top stitching on the shoulders done by hand. The ICON 1000 Outsider jacket
is built twice - once to ensure proper fit, and then a second time through the same stitch holes after the leather and denim are separately treated.
ICON 1000 pieces are heritage items meant to endure, not fashion jackets to be disposed of after one season of riding.
5. Demand Originality
ICON 1000 jackets are inspired by vintage forms but do not copy it. Vintage militaria, our own custom motorcycles, and post-apocalyptic scenarios continually inspire the ICON 1000 line. Limited edition runs, individual identification plagues, laser perforation, quilted satin liners, premium badging, and more - each 1000 piece is as unique as the rider who puts miles on it.
