In pretty much every photo you see of Paul Simonon with The Clash, he's in a 391 “Lightning” jacket by Lewis Leathers – the basis of this limited-edition design.
Paul worked with the folks at Lewis (who've been making leather jackets in London for 121 years) to create a jacket that feels likes it's already lived a hell of an interesting life. The front and sleeve zip panels are faded, as if they’ve been sun-bleached from years of riding. The jacket's soft sheep leather has been hand-distressed under Paul's direction, making each one a bit different. And he came up with his own stash of vintage-based metal badges and stowed them in the pockets, so you can customize your own jacket however you want.
The back of the jacket features Paul's "Jack to a King" artwork– his interpretation of Norman Collins’ skull and crossbones flash art from the 1950s.
Each jacket comes with a booklet documenting how the jacket was made. And as a reminder of how unique your jacket is, a sewn in label identifying its limited edition number out of the 50 made.
Due to the insanely limited edition nature of this jacket, it is not returnable. Because it's even more impressive in person, we expect you'll be grinning ear-to-ear once you have it in your hands. But if you do have any concerns, contact us immediately at email@example.com.
