You won't likely come across a finer example of a traditional leather jacket than Michael Toschi's Moto ($2400). Okay, like the ex-racer's other Italian-made goods, this is a premium-priced garment. But what you get for your hard-earned green is air-mesh-lined, aniline-dyed calfskin with a feel that is a world apart from that of conventional riding jackets. Should you smack the deck, removable CE-approved padding at the shoulders and elbows, plus foam chest and back panels, will help break your fall. Toschi's signature yellow stitching completes the look.
