The leather jacket is certainly a mark of all things cool, rock and retro, and the motorheads at Oakland-based Platinum Dirt [2] have aptly figured out a way to embody this way of being in their new line of road-ready leather jackets [3]. Made from the reclaimed upholstery of vintage Lincolns, Jaguars and Cadilacs, every luxurious piece in the “VIN” collection comes stamped with the seal of the original manufacturer, as well as the vehicle identification number of the auto from which it was sourced.
