As riders of vintage choppers, Clutch Monkey were determined to create a motorcycle vest worthy of a lifetime of road-weathered abuse and resilient enough to tell your story with each chapter getting better with age. With this in mind, they set out to find the highest quality materials in the world to create a vintage-inspired, utilitarian design and sell them at a price that doesn’t leave anyone in the dust.

For the “denim purist” out there, this motorcycle vest is for you. Made with the utmost attention to material and detail with classic lines inspired by Dig’s father’s vest from the early 1920′s. The Dig is constructed with heavy selvedge denim and lined with a soft yet durable wool fabric. Button up this timeless and spirited vest and know we’ve got your back.
Clutch Monkey has quite the story behind their brand which you can read more about here.
THE QUALITY IS IN THE DETAILS
Clutch Monkey onlys use the finest selvedge denim (what is selvedge?) from American-based Cone Mills (White Oak plant), Japan (Kuroki, Kurabo & Nihon Menpu - why Japanese?) & Italy-based Candiani Mills. These mills produce the most rare & beautiful selvedge denim in the world – they can’t guarantee that they will be able to find it again. All of the denim CM uses is sanforized & made on vintage shuttle looms which produces aheavier, age-worthy material that gets better with abuse.
10 oz. 100% Umatilla County made pure virgin wool fabric - beautifully woven, very durable and extremely comfortable. This fabric is also machine washable but we highly recommend you never wash a Dig vest – “Faithfully Filthy Deepens The Dirty Soul”. Lining is detached from the bottom back of denim to allow for embroidering.
Inside Cigarette/Metal Hinged Lighter Pocket: Partitioned to keep your smokes and lighter separate. Pocket bag and flap made from 10 oz. water resistant waxed cotton fabric. The waxing of this cotton is an uniquely American process cloaked in secrecy for over seven generations. As the waxed cotton ages, it develops a well-worn and comfortable patina. The patina develops with use in the same manner that leather ages and burnishes with time.
Their vests are made to last a lifetime and are guaranteed they are made from the highest quality materials in the world. If anything should happen to your vest CM will repair them free of charge. If your vest tears or comes apart at the seams, send them back and they’ll fix it.
