Wear a leather down jacket that will be useful in the upcoming season with CHILL

Kadoya, founded in 1935 in Asakusa, Tokyo, is Japan's oldest manufacturer of leather jackets and is loved by many bikers.

In recent years, leather items have been attracting attention not only from motorcyclists but also from the street scene, where leather items are adopted as fashion, and a lineup of sophisticated, over-spec items that seem to overturn conventional wisdom has begun to appear. .

In this article, we would like to introduce you to a "chill" way to wear a leather down jacket, which will come in handy in the upcoming season, which will get even colder.

VOLGIN is a leather down jacket that was originally intended for harsh winter riding and was designed to provide warmth and comfort while riding a bike, but it can also be worn casually outdoors or at a chill spot near the house. We'll dig deeper into styling here.

Of course, drinking coffee at home or at an old-school coffee shop is delicious, but there's nothing quite like drinking coffee outside in the sun. When it comes to clothes like this, the first priority is to be comfortable. Therefore, I purposely chose slacks made of a soft material that is not too bulky.

For the inner layer, pair it with pants that can be layered roughly and a flannel shirt of the same color , and finish off with an edgy VOLGIN to create a ``chill'' style that isn't too loose.

Taking a closer look at the details, we see that both sleeves have a tuck roll design from the shoulders to the elbows, and the cuffs have zipper openings and triangular gussets for an authentic look.

Tag that says CHILL OUT

The lining is made of quilted fabric with aluminum heat reflective film sandwiched in between, and is accented with a seasonal graphic that reads "CHILL OUT."

Riders may have the image of being difficult to wear for people who don't ride motorcycles, but in reality, they are easy-to-wear outerwear that accents a variety of outfits, and are cool on the street.

When you want to spend your own blissful time in a park or riverbed, why not try wearing VOLGIN loosely and going out?


VOLGIN product description

Leather down creates a sophisticated street style with the voluminous thickness unique to down and metal zipper accents. Not only does it have specs as it is an item for bikers, but its carefully-selected details make it a fashion item that will naturally blend in with town wear.

Furthermore, the lining has pockets where pads can be attached to protect the shoulders, elbows, and spine, making this an authentic outerwear with a sophisticated design.
