Gentlemen, start your engines. The motorheads at Oakland-based Platinum Dirt have just launched a line of road-ready leather jackets that get extra mileage out of reclaimed automotive upholstery. Made from vintage Caddys, Bimmers, and Benzes, every topper in the “VIN” line comes emblazoned with the seal and vehicle identification number of the defunct and junked auto. It also comes with a “pink slip” detailing the demise of the car, plus a cheeky zipper made from the departed vehicle’s hood ornament.

Platinum Dirt was founded by fashion designer Dustin Page and his business partner, Aaron Parrish, to give old Lincolns, Jaguars, Cadilacs, and other cars a second lease on life. The vehicles’ durable-yet-supple upholstery has been perfectly broken in over a lifetime of use, making every finished jacket a one-of-a-kind piece of wearable art.

Derived from the front and rear seats of a single car, each jacket has been carefully crafted for fit and finish.

Derived from the front and rear seats of a single car, each jacket has been carefully crafted for fit and finish. You’ll even find the logo of the original auto manufacturer stamped somewhere on the jacket’s chest or shoulder. And since these toppers are two to three times thicker than your average leather jacket, they’re sure to go the distance.
