Merlin Heritage Collection
The Merlin Heritage Collection seamlessly blends classic styling with modern protection to create a versatile selection of motorcycle clothing. We use a range of different market-leading materials, including Halley Stevensons® Waxed Cotton, D3O® armour and Reissa® waterproofing to ensure the highest quality. Our heritage collection also expands into leather garments for retro riders who want the old-school looks minus the signature feel of waxed cotton. Combining the best of British-made motorcycle clothing, our Heritage line offers a wide variety for both men and women.
Merlin Tewkesbury Cotec Jacket
Taking its styling cues from a traditional high street fashion jacket, the Tewkesbury is constructed from the Merlin-exclusive waxed cotton Cotec – an 8oz lighter weight and more breathable wax produced by Halley Stevensons®. With D3O® armour pre-fitted to the shoulders and elbows and a pocket for an optional D3O® back protector, Tewkesbury is both protective and stylish. The fixed Reissa® waterproofing and double-layer storm flap under the central zip combines with a 70g thermal wadding for weatherproofing for an all-season riding jacket.
Caring for your Tewkesbury 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.
