Roland Sands Ronin Jacket
Roland Sands is a Californian custom-bike designer and manufacturer. He makes bikes and parts, but also has a very cool clothing range. Perhaps the most famous and popular pieces in the Roland Sands collection are the Ronin jacket and the Ronin glove that has been designed to co-ordinate with it. The leather of the jacket is oiled and waxy. The shape is somewhat boxy, but the styling and detailing is spot on. But it has to be remarked that this is a jacket created with long, hot and sunny California days in mind. And so the jacket has no waterproof membrane and no thermal liner. It is very ‘old school’, as indeed is most of Roland’s collection. Both the Ronin jacket and the Ronin glove come in a variety of colourways.
