Cotton, Hemp, Silk, Kevlar... All of these things are running through my head as potential materials for riding jacket and pants. I make my own clothes and I am working on a pattern for raw selvedge biker jeans. I was thinking using canvase double layers on certain pieces like the knees and the cuffs. But I should be really considering what materials would hold up best in a potential wreck. The popular material is leather for obvious reasons, but I live in Texas, wearing a tshirt is mandatory to our survival. I see hundreds of shirtless bikers here. But I like my skin, and I like my tats. Whats some good materials to work with in making my own?
