Roland Sands Honcho & Cassidy Jackets: Scruffy, 'Nuff Said

Roland Sands is an ex-AMA 250 GP racer in addition to his current role as a fabricator/fashion designer/all-around cool guy.  His recent foray into riding gear and apparel has been quite popular (like everything else he signs his name on).  Initially working with mostly leather, Sands is branching out with some other casual options for urban riding or a night out on the town.

Roland Sands Honcho Motorcycle JacketThe Roland Sands Honcho Jacket is an interesting piece equally at home on a motorcycle or down at your local Honky-Tonk.  Sun’s out, gun’s out.  Show them what you’re packing with convenient zip-off sleeves, or keep them attached- the Blackstone cowhide is as smooth as your pickup lines.  Throw this bad boy over your favorite flannel and you’re ready to saddle up.  Think of it as a reverse mullet- party in the center, business on the side.

Roland Sands Cassidy Motorcycle Jacket

The Roland Sands Cassidy Jacket is another brand spankin’ new offering for Spring 2015.  It fits like your favorite shop-wear but doesn’t smell like transmission fluid and look like it belonged to a homeless person prior to your posession.  The heavy duty canvas outer is water-repellant and cut perfectly for the riding position.  Crack kills, so the Cassidy has a drop tail and pre-curved sleeves.  This is legitimate riding gear, but works equally well just getting your hands dirty around the garage.

We see Sands continuing his tradition of creating practical, good-looking riding gear for more casual applications that keep you looking and feeling like a million bucks.  The Honcho and Cassidy Jackets represent a greater push into more premium textile materials in addition to the tried-and-true use of leather.  While you do not want to crash above 100 MPH in these most of the Roland Sands Gear, it fills an important void for riders wanting more casual protection with a super-plush finish.
