It’s well known that Corazzo gets most of it’s design ideas from styles from the past, mostly from the “Mod” era, The Mod’s as many of you may know were the United Kingdoms Vintage Vespa enthusiasts of the 50’s and 60’s. Their ideals and energy were passed to Americans to carry on the traditions of the Vintage enthusiasts through rallies, club rides, and fashion.
In 2007 Mod Culture had this to say about us:
Stylish and safe jackets for motorbike and scooter riders are few and far between – but there’s a choice of smart designs on the Corazzo website, including the retro-styled 5.0, Bomber and Shop jackets.
All take their inspiration from vintage 50s and 60s jackets, but with a build that’s very 2007, especially in terms of safety. The jackets have a range of features, including removable armour for shoulders, elbows and back, water-resistance, reflective Scotchlite for night visibility and in the case of the 5.0 (the one with the stripe), a fleece collar and cuff.
