Universal Racer Mk 1

Racing suits entered the D Lewis range in 1926, and one of the first styles we produced was the Universal Racer Mk 1. Style-wise the jacket anticipates the Super Monza of the mid 1970’s, heavy padding at the shoulders and elbows, cross-over lancer front and two exterior pockets.  The two examples in our archive have a tough khaki 100% cotton lining and the wadding under the leather shoulder & elbow patches are made from several layers of blanketing, we have incorporated both details in this jacket. The Universal Racer Mk 1 is currently available in our premium cow leather or a vegetable tanned sheep leather. These options can be requested at the time of ordering.
