Frequently Asked Questions
PRE-SALE GENERAL QUESTIONS
Q: Can I collect or try on size at your retail shop/outlet?
A: We are an internet based factory direct mail company therefore currently do not operate via a retail outlet which allows us to keep our prices competitively low. We are however in the process of opening our office up as an appointment based showroom. An opening announcement for this will be made in 2015. If you wish to register your interest in visiting our showroom then please contact us to register your interest. Meanwhile for sizing please follow our size guide here
Q: Can you advise on correct sizing as I'm still unsure?
A: Yes we provide both email and telephone customer support, so contact us or give us a call and request a callback by calling 020 3701 1966 (or from abroad +44 20 3701 1966)
Q: What is the difference between Standard Cowhide and Premium Cowhide leather options?
A: Standard cowhide leather used is the thin under-layer skin of cowhide and is suitable for light motorcycle wear and ideal for use as a style and fashion accessory at a relatively low cost.
Premium cowhide leather is top layer 1.3mm-1.5mm cowhide skin, is analine treated therefore has a softer texture, thicker grain and is also drum dyed to allow better robustness against everyday wear and tear. We recommend the premium cowhide leather option for robust quality everyday and track day usage for the best available protection in this price range
Q: Why is there a surcharge for 2XL+ sizes?
A: The surcharge is a manufacturing supplier on cost due to additional leather material used on product and added average shipping weight of the extra material used for 2XL+ sizing
Q: Do you offer a product Guarantee?
A: Yes we offer a one year limited guarantee, please see here for full wording
Q: Do your leather suits have a full connecting zip?
A: Yes, as long as jacket and trouser chosen are ordered together and ideally (recommended) the same size or no more than one size difference apart, then it will get a full connection length zip. However if you chose an (XL) Trouser with a (M) jacket, it will only get an 8" rear connecting zip. (note: some designs do not allow for mixed jacket and trouser sizes. This will be identifiable from the product description.
Q: Are the leathers safe for track day use?
A: The premium Cowhide leather option is perfectly acceptable for track day use. Premium leathers also come with CE approved padded armour instead of standard padded armour. The standard leather option is not recommended for track/race use.
Q: Can the leathers be supplied with CE approved armour?
A: Yes if you chose the premium leather option then your leathers will come supplied with CE approved padding
Q: Are you a official licenced manufacturer of the motorcycle or sponsor badges/logos/lettering shown on some of the range of designs shown on website?
A: No, all our leathers are made in a un-official capacity and we are not affiliated nor offer promotion of any other company. This allows us to offer prices that are lower than officially licenced product (without compromise in quality)
Furthermore, upon customer request, all our leathers are available 'without' the aftermarket branding applied which is shown as a example on many of the leathers advertised on our website. You as the customer is expected to be fully aware of this at time of purchase
