BSA x Merlin Collaboration

Two proud Birmingham-born brands come together. Introducing the BSA x Merlin collaboration collection, a dual-branded range showcasing the best of both names. The roots of both BSA and Merlin lie in the heart of the Midlands, where both brands innovate from today. We share the same core values; originality, independence, self-expression and authenticity. BSA’s history as one of Britain’s most iconic motorcycle manufacturers continues into present day with the revival of their most successful motorcycle, the Gold Star. Launching in 2023, we’re thrilled to be a part of BSA’s new history, teaming up to craft a thoughtful, comprehensive collection which spans both protective motorcycle clothing and and lifestyle items.

Empire Waxed Cotton Jacket

The Empire jacket represents Merlin’s core values, with a 12oz Halley Stevensons®waxed cotton outer for the traditional waxy feel that most retro riders look for. The fixed Reissa® waterproof membrane teams with a removable full-body 150g thermal for weatherproofing, while D3O® armour pre-fitted to the shoulders and elbows looks after protection.

Caring for your Empire jacket

To care for your jacket, begin by lightly brushing off any dirt or soil, and use a cold damp cloth if necessary to wipe down the jacket. Clean it in this way regularly to maintain its appearance, but don’t be too harsh as the wax will be removed. You can re-wax the jacket with our Merlin Wax Cotton Tin when it loses its waxed finish and water begins to soak into the cotton rather than bead off. Please do not machine wash, tumble dry or use hot water on your jacket. Full care information can be found in our dedicated care guide: Merlin Wash & Care.
