Band Of Outsiders Jacket

Item 120092

Band Of Outsiders Jacket: When New Wave cinema broke in the Sixties, you could watch films like Breathless and Band of Outsiders and walk out feeling hip, energized and rebellious. This is a new version of the classically menacing black leather jacket - still menacing, but with clean modernist lines. No studs, buckles or zippers. The rich, supple, full-grain cowhide has a pebbled, matte finish. The jacket is lined with quilted black acetate that's easy on the shoulders. Great details: two-snap adjustable cuffs; antiqued brass zipper front; side tabs; and three inside pockets (two are zippered). Professionally leather clean. Imported.

Do you know your acetate from a hole in the ground? Your gussets from your grommets? If not, here's a list of the more commonly used textile words and terms that you'll see in our catalog. For more information or clarification, you can call us at: 1-800-882-4323

ACETATE - A manufactured fiber that uses cellulose refined from cotton and/or wood pulp. Characteristics: fast drying, wrinkle- and shrinkage-resistant, crisp or soft depending on end use, luxurious in appearance.

ACRYLIC - A manufactured fiber made from long-chain synthetic polymers. Characteristics: wrinkle resistance; low moisture absorbency and quick-drying; provides warmth yet lightweight, soft and resilient.

ALPACA - The fleece from an Alpaca, a cousin to the llama. Alpaca fleece is similar in characteristics to wool, but softer, silkier and more lustrous.

BANDED COLLAR - A shirt without a fold-over collar; there is only the band at the neck.

BARTACK - A close series of stitches crossing a piece of cloth in order to reinforce at a point of concentrated strain (e.g. belt loop or patch pocket corner).

BASKET WEAVE - A variation of the plain weave in which two or more threads weave alike in both warp (down) and filling (across) directions, joined in the regular order of the plain weave. So named for the basket-like pattern of the weave.

BATIK - A method of resist dyeing which employs wax as the resist. The pattern is covered with wax, and the fabric is then dyed: the wax patterns will not take the dye. The wax is removed after dyeing by boiling the fabric or applying solvent. The fabric is often streaked where the dye has gone through cracks in the wax. Batik dyeing originated in Indonesia.

BESOM - A narrow piece of fabric that works as an edging on a pocket; can be single besom, one side of pocket opening or double besom, both sides.

BOX PLEAT - Two small, back to back outward facing pleats that have a box- like appearance. On shirts, box pleats are positioned in the center back at the bottom of the yoke to allow ease of movement in the shoulders and arms.

BROADCLOTH - A fine, closely woven, lustrous cotton or cotton/poly blend made in plain weave with a fine rib in the direction of the filling (across). The filling yarn is heavier and has less twist than the warp yarn (down). The cloth is usually mercerized, and has a soft, firm finish.

BRUSHING - A finishing process for woven or knit fabrics in which brushes or other abrading elements are used to raise a nap (a fuzzy or downy surface). Brushed fabrics have a soft, slightly weathered, broken-in feel.

BUTTON-DOWN COLLAR - Having buttonholes on the collar points so they fasten to the shirt.

CAMP COLLAR - A one-piece collar that lays flat, part of the shirt also lays flat to create a notch. Also called a Convertible Collar or Notched Collar.

CANVAS - A general classification of strong, firm, closely woven fabrics usually made with cotton. A heavier, open weave comprised of plied yarns (a number of single yarns, usually three, twisted together). Characteristics: very hard-wearing, generally water-resistant.

CASHMERE - The fleece that comes from a Cashmere goat. These animals roam at high elevations (10,000 - 15,000 ft.), hence their very warm, soft fleece. Garments made with cashmere are normally more expensive because of limited yield (one goat produces only 4 ounces of fleece a year).

CHAMBRAY - A general class of plain weave, usually cotton, made with a colored warp (down) and white filling (across). Most often made using blue and white, but also available in stripes, checks and figured patterns.

COMBING - The removal of short fibers or noils from material so that the resulting yarn be composed of larger fibers. The comb straightens and arranges them in parallel order.

CORDUROY - A strong, durable fabric with cotton ground and vertical cut-pile stripes (wales) formed by an extra system of filling yarns. The foundation of the fabric can be either a plain or twill weave. Of all cotton fabrics, corduroy is the warmest because its wales form an insulated cushion of air.

COTTON - A vegetable fiber consisting of unicellular hairs attached to the seed of the cotton plant. The normal color of cotton is light to dark cream, and its chemical composition is almost pure cellulose. A distinct feature of the mature fiber is its spirality or twist. In fabrics, cotton makes for strong, versatile, cool-wearing and comfortable garments.

CREPE - A general classification of fabric characterized by a broad range of crinkled or gained surface effects. Methods of making crepe include the use of hard twisted yarns, special chemical treatment, special weaves and embossing.

DART - A tuck in the fabric that is sewn. It is used to define the shape of a garment making a two dimensional piece of fabric into a three-dimensional garment. Darts are usually seen where the body curves: bust, waist, hip.

DENIM - A well-known basic cotton or blended fabric in a right- or left-hand woven twill. Generally, the warp (down) is dyed blue with a white filling (across). Also called "dungaree."

DOBBY - A general term for a fabric woven on a special dobby loom, which allows the weaving of small, geometric figures. These patterns are beyond the range of simple looms, yet too limited to be produced economically by Jacquard loom. A dobby weave can be distinguished from a plain weave by its more ornate and intricate woven appearance.

FLANNEL - Generally, a cotton or wool fabric, napped on one or both sides (usually both), then bleached, dyed or printed, and brushed or rerun through the napping machine to revive the nap. Flannel fabrics are very soft and cozy.

FLEECE - 1). A heavy napped surface, most often in knit goods, made with a heavy and soft-spun back yarn, which is napped in finishing (e.g. the inside surface of a sweatshirt). 2). Wool sheared from sheep or other animals in the wool class. The term is especially used for the entire coat of wool shorn from the sheep at one time; it is generally taken off the animal in one piece.

GARMENT DYEING - The garment is first produced, then the complete garment is dyed.

GARMENT WASH - The garment is constructed and then washed to soften the fabric and minimize shrinkage.

GAUGE - A measurement used in knitted garments that reflects the size of the needles used to knit the garment. The larger the gauge, the smaller the needle - therefore, the finer the knit.

GORE - Vertical panels in a skirt or dress; enhances the fit of a garment.

GROMMET - Little air holes reinforced with metal ring, usually on jackets, hats or shoes to allow ventilation.

GROSGRAIN - A firm, closely woven, ribbed fabric. It has a dressy appearance and is used for ribbons, neckties, hatbands and trimmings.

GUSSET - A triangular piece of fabric inserted into a garment to improve the fit or for reinforcement (e.g. on the sleeve of a jacket under the arm to allow for extra layering).

HERRINGBONE TWILL - A broken twill weave composed of vertical sections which are alternately right hand and left hand in direction, resembling the vertebral structure of the herring (zigzag). The twill changes direction perfectly where the weave breaks, balancing the overall pattern of the fabric.

HOLLYWOOD WAISTBAND - The waistband is the same piece of fabric as the rest of the garment. Advantages are that it has a smooth silhouette making the transition from hip to waist more gradual.

JACQUARD - A system of weaving which, because of a pattern-making mechanism of great versatility, permits the production of very ornate, complex woven designs. This type of weaving is used for tapestry, figured necktie and dress fabric, and figured patterns on knit goods (sweaters).

JERSEY - A generic term for a plain knitted fabric; its principal distinction is that it is not a fabric with a distinct rib (e.g. T-shirt fabric).

KNIT - Knit fabrics are made up of a series of interlocking loops that result in a flexible construction. All knits have some stretch.

LINEN - One of the oldest textile fibers known. Though the fiber and the fabric are both commonly known as linen, it is actually flax, the fiber of the Linum plant. Linen is generally favored for its fine, strong, cool-wearing properties. It drapes away from the skin rather than clinging to it. In knitwear, linen is combined with other natural or synthetic fibers for improved strength and resiliency.

MERCERIZATION - A treatment of cotton yarn or fabric to increase its luster. Its affinity for dyes is also enhanced. In the process, the material is immersed under tension in a sodium hydroxide (caustic soda) solution. This later is neutralized in acid. The process causes a permanent swelling of the fiber, thus increasing its luster.

NYLON - The generic term for man-made fibers composed of polyamides derived from coal and petroleum. Characteristics: high strength, elasticity, low water absorption and quick-drying.

OMBRE - A color effect woven into the fabric that has gradual changes in shade from light to dark, generally produced by arranging different tones in the warp.

PIGMENT DYEING - A process in which a specific type of dye is applied to the surface of a fabric, then after one washing it fades into a softer color. The color will slowly continue to fade with age. Pigment dyed products from Territory Ahead are prewashed and will not harm other garments during washing after they've been washed once.

PLACKET - An opening with fabric piecing and buttons or snaps on a garment that facilitates dressing. Plackets can be at the neck of a shirt, the cuff of a sleeve, or the waist of a skirt or pair of pants.

PLEATS - Small tucks in clothing to allow for extra room and ease of movement. Pleats can be seen at the waist of pants or skirts, the cuff of a sleeve, the waist or bust area of a blouse or dress.

POLYESTER - A manufactured fiber made from long-chain synthetic polymers. Characteristics: crease-resistance, quick-drying, great shape retention, high strength, abrasion resistance and easy care.

PRINTING - Applying color(s) in definite, repeated patterns of fabric by any one of a number of printing methods. Color is deposited in thick paste form and treated with steam or chemicals to cause it to migrate into or adhere to textile material. The design is not woven into the cloth but stamped in after the cloth is woven or knit.

RAMIE - A strong, soft fiber yielded by the inner bark of the Ramie plant. The fiber is white, soft, lustrous and slightly coarser than flax (linen) when degummed and bleached. Ramie fabrics are strong, smooth and durable.

RAYON - A generic term for man-made fibers composed of regenerated cellulose derived from trees, cotton and woody plants. Characteristics: high absorbency, bright or dull luster, pleasant feel or hand, good draping qualities, ability to be dyed in brilliant colors and superior strength.

REACTIVE DYE - A type of dye that completely saturates the fabric for a long lasting color.

RIB KNIT - A double-knit fabric in which the rib wales or vertical rows of stitches intermesh alternatively on the face and the back of the fabric. Rib knit fabrics have good elasticity and shape retention, especially in the width.

RISE - The measurement on pants from the front waist between the legs up to the back waist. This refers to how high or low a pant will ride (i.e. "short-waist" or "long-waist")

SANDBLASTING - The garment is literally sandblasted for a worn-in look; fabric has to be very durable to withstand the abuse, usually 14 oz. denim for jeans.

SANDWASH - Sand is put into the industrial wash for a softened feel and texture for the garment.

SHIRTTAIL HEM - The curved bottom hem of a shirt - higher on the side hip area (for ease of movement) dipping low in the front and back (so that the shirt will stay tucked into pants).

SILK - Continuous protein filament produced by the larvae of various insects, especially the caterpillar when constructing its cocoon. The chief portion of commercial silk is produced in Japan and China. Characteristics: resiliency, aesthetics, elasticity and strength, warm in winter, cool in summer.

SLUB - A lump or thick place on yarn caused by small lengths of yarn adhering to it during the spinning process. This adds a random texture to the fabric when the yarn is woven or knit into a garment.

SPREAD COLLAR - An open collar with no buttons to hold the collar points to the shirt. Spread collars have two pieces: the fold over collar part and the stand that keeps the collar close to the neck.

STANDARD WAISTBAND - An extra piece of fabric that is sewn to the body of the pants, shorts or skirt.

TENCEL - A cellulosic fiber produced by Courtaulds, spun from an amine oxide solvent that offers a higher degree of polymerization than is available with rayon. Characteristics: pleasant feel or hand, good draping qualities, ability to be dyed in brilliant colors, superior strength, and easy care.

VENTED BOTTOM - The bottom hem of a shirt that is cut straight with side slits to allow ease of movement. Vents are usually 2" deep.

WALE - In woven fabric, one series of ribs, cords, or raised portions. In corduroy fabric, wales per inch are counted to distinguish broad- from fine-textured cloth. The higher the wale number, the finer the texture of the fabric.

WEIGHT OF CLOTH (OZ.) - A description or classification of many fabrics by weight per yard.

WELT - A piece of fabric that works as an edging on a pocket; usually a single welt and wider than a besom.

WOOL - Primarily the fleece of a sheep or lamb - but can also refer to fleece of the alpaca, angora, cashmere goat, camel and vicuna. The fiber is distinguished from hair by the character of its covering: minute overlapping scales, which give it a felting property. Characteristics: strong and resilient, soft and warm, wicks away moisture and dyes well for rich coloration.

WOVEN - Woven fabrics are produced by the interlacing of yarns. Each filling yarn goes alternately over and under each warp yarn.

YARN-DYEING - Dyeing of individual yarns before weaving or knitting. Compared to garment dyes or prints, yarn-dyed fabrics boast richer, longer lasting color.

YOKE - An added section of fabric in a shirt or pants that enhances the fit. On a shirt, the yoke is usually on the back across the top shoulder area but can also be on the front shoulder to chest area. On pants, it is generally on the back of jeans-style pants located below the waistband.

"I don't even remember when I bought this, but I'm sure it was shortly after it came out; over 10 years ago? GREAT jacket, though; warm, one of the best fitting leather jackets I've ever owned; and far better looking than any picture is going to show. I've bought a lot of stuff from TA over the years, and this is one of my favourites. "

"I have had mine for a couple of years, and it is the best looking, best wearing, most comfortable, and most complimented leather jacket I have ever owned. I literally get at least one compliment a week, sometimes more. I love the weight, and sizing (L) is perfect for me. On colder days, I wear a fleece vest underneath it. As others have reported, I also have a problem keeping the rear snaps, snapped. Also, due to heavy use of the inside pockets, I had to have my tailor repair the lining in one."

"Very nice jacket. Heavy leather, nice warm lining. My only complaint would be that it's just a little too long. "
December 13, 2016
"This is a nice jacket. The leather is good quality and very heavy. The fit is excellent. The collar needs a little more structure. Also Territory Ahead's shipping leaves the jacket very folded and creased. This needs to be improved. The big problem with this jacket is the storm flap. It would be much better without it. Being on the inside it makes the jacket difficult to zip, and prevents the collar on that side from laying nicely. I had a tailor remove it."

"Beautiful high quality jacket. I am a 40 regular and usually buy size medium. I read other reviews stating that the jacket runs large, so I ordered a small, and it fits perfectly. I took advantage of a 25% off sale, so it was more affordable. Sometimes you have to give yourself a present. Time will tell if the inside lining holds up."

"XXL. Nice supple good leather. Short break in time. :) Sleeves are kinda long though - I snapped them over to the inside snap - will have to shorten them an inch. Weight is heavier than I was hoping. Like the inside pockets."

"Agree that the jacket is great looking and is made of sturdy but soft leather. Also, 2 years in, I need expensive repairs to keep the jacket useful. What a shame. This jacket is like the Dodge Challenger. Great look on the outside but weak and incomplete on the inside. For $500 the construction of the interior is shoddy. A jacket like this should last a decade. Very disappointed."

"Great looking jacket and a great fit. Leather is heavy and will undoubtedly last a very long time. It is unfortunate that the interior of the jacket has fallen apart after 2 years of intermittent use. The interior lining of the sleeves is disintegrating and there are holes throughout the interior lining. Very disappointing. I have an Eddie Bauer jacket that is at least 10 years older that I wear just as often and the interior is still in great shape. So, in summary, TA, please find some interior material that will last as long and are as good quality as the exterior. In this particular case, beauty is indeed only skin deep..."

"I just received this jacket to replace the Star Valley Leather Field Coat which I decided to return, and the instant I tried it on it felt perfect. The lines are clean and classic, and the leather is great quality. I love the tan leather lining on the zipper flap, and I prefer the snap closures to buttons. The small inside right side pocket with a leather flap sized to fit a cell phone is a nice and unexpected touch (two additional zippered inside pockets also, one on each side). My only suggestion for improvement is a heavier front zipper. The zipper that is used is probably dictated by the front closure design, but I would prefer a size larger zipper to make it easier to get started, and a bottom pull/2-way zipper would make it more comfortable in the car. These are nit picking as I love the coat. I hope the lining wears better than my last TA leather coat though (which I am now trying to figure out how to repair, since the rest of it is still going strong). Time will tell."

"Love it! Replaced my 10 yr old coat with this high quality, stylish and heavy jacket - ideal for winter temps! Fit is generous, but medium was right for my avg. 38 frame; and it allows me to comfortably layer a sweater underneath. 2 call-outs, I found the front zipper a bit cumbersome to use with the location and inner flap design, but it works fine; also, the side button snaps frequently unbutton when I get into a car, but neither is a deal breaker - I'd buy it again."

"Great jacket, much nicer than anything I saw at the department stores. Very high quality. After reading the other reviews I bought one size smaller than I wear. Fits perfect. I don't think you can go wrong with this jacket."

"I bought this jacket about 1.5 years ago and it is the best leather jacket I have ever owned. The fit is perfect and the weight of the jacket confirms that it is of the highest quality; it can be worn as a casual jacket or even for more formal occasions, and it is heavy enough to really keep you warm. I had never purchased a leather jacket from a website before but since I was on the Territory Ahead website doing some holiday shopping and saw this jacket, I thought I would write a review. It's not inexpensive but in my opinion the quality makes it a great value."

"I was a little unsure as to what size to get because of the other reviews. I am 6' 195lbs and normally wear a 44 regular. I ordered the large and it fits me perfectly. Overall the jacket seems to be extremely well made. The only negative is that it's difficult to zipper the jacket because of the way the zipper is located, but I am hoping that will sort itself out once it gets broken in. It's a beautiful jacket and the leather is top of the line."

"Black leather jackets have never really been "me." I've always been more comfortable and drawn to brown leather. However, after finally giving this jacket a try at the last minute, I was surprised at the comfort, fit, and look of it. So I ended up returning a brown leather jacket I was trying out from another dealer/website that cost over twice as much, as it didn't have the fit and feel of this one. So....looks like this is my baby."

"This jacket is the real deal. I am 6'4" 235 lbs 46L and the Tall Large fits like it was tailored specifically for me. It is a great quality jacket that looks and feels better than I ever imagined. This is easily my favorite jacket. I am glad I finally decided to order it. If you are looking for a leather jacket I would highly recommend this one."

"I've been looking for a comfortable yet attractive leather jacket for some time. Been surfing the web, stores, etc... Finally came across the TA Band of Outsiders leather jacket and I was hooked. Great look. Great feel. Great quality. In short, this jacket is a definite must have. On top of the nice jacket the TA customer service has been exceptional. I am 6'3" and initially ordered the large. After receiving the large it was obvious I needed a large tall. Exchange was flawless. kudos to TA team."

"Overall this is a nice looking and fitting jacket. I have had the jacket for a little over a year. Within just a few months, the lining has begun to fray and tear in the back. This is due to nothing more than average use. The rest of the jacket is in great shape. The tears in the lining are soon going to make the jacket unwearable as the inner insulation is beginning to fall out. At this price, this should be a more durable product. I would strongly recommend against buying this jacket."

"I bought this jacket for my son - he is 6'3" and weighs about 220. The large fit him perfectly - and he looks so great in it. He lives in New York City, and it is the perfect jacket for wearing around - out to dinner or just hanging out. He loves it - says it will last him a lifetime. A perfect gift. Thanks."

"My only criticism of this jacket would be its price. Fortunately, I caught a sale before Christmas and didn't pay full price. That said, this jacket is worth more than your average jacket. It's very heavy and well made. The stand-up collar design is unique and the jacket fits very comfortably. I really love it."

"It's expensive but it's worth it. I wear a size 44 and the medium fits perfectly (I usually order a large for all other TA clothes). The jacket is nice and thick. As a motorcyclist, this would be a good thickness for a m/c jacket. This jacket gets me a lot of compliments. It wears well and I have not noticed any problems with the lining referenced in other reviews."

"I bought this jacket for my 6'4" tall, 200 lb, husband. I had been searching for a quality leather jacket for over a year. I found it in this jacket. I typically order an XL TALL even though husband is trim/fit 200lbs to accomodate his broad shoulders and 36 1/2 arm length. This XL size proved too wide in the body but he loved the finish/style and feel of leather, so I returned (with no problems) and recieved the replacement L TALL promptly. Fortunately the shoulders still fit well. Sleeve length in the TALL is perfect. The quilted interior is smooth and very well finished, the leather is soft, and considering this is a TALL L the jacket has a comfortable weight (not too heavy). The brown trim is a good contemporary touch. The two snap at sides on base of jacket give him the option to trim up the fit nicely. The collar does stand up but is just long enough to fold down to stay if desired. I purchased during a sale and even though the sale had ended I was sent the replacement jacket at the sale price with free return shipping both ways. Just as pleased with customer service as with jacket so will recommend and look to shop with Territory Ahead in future."
