Vanson for Epaulet “Waxed Triton” Jacket

Brooklyn’s Epaulet have worked with Fall River, MA’s Vanson Leathers on the “Waxed Triton” Jacket.

The project takes inspiration from the British Isles in two ways – a nod to the Scottish invention of waxed cotton canvas and the Cafe Racer favorite Triton bike (fusing elements of the Norton Feather Bed and Triumph Bonneville). The Scottish connection is furthered by a choice Royal Stewart tartan lining. Vanson, obviously, has great tradition in motorcycles and holds the distinction of being the largest motorcycle leather manufacturer in the United States. This jacket, like all of Vanson’s textile range, is produced in El Salvador. Limited to 14 pieces.
