Established in 1914, Beck contracted to have made, some of the earliest, and arguably best and most innovative designs during the motorcycle revolution of the 20's and 30's. They continued with this into the 1960's when they finally decided to focus only on the motorcycle and car parts distribution, which also made them famous. Long attributed to the Schott Co (Though some disagree), I believe that the earliest offerings, such as this "333" design were actually produced by Leathertogs of Everett, Mass. The design cues are just too similar to ignore.
- This jacket is based on the Beck 333 of the late 1930's. Though this style underwent many changes, this is the early version which retains its early "Chin Strap" design.
The pattern is a fairly trim fitting jacket, with close shoulders, high arm holes, but relatively roomy arms, and a trim body. Sharp in the way only a 30's design can be.
