Krantzjackan 1000

We thank you for your enthusiasm about the “original jacket ” from about 1954. The origin was Krantzens loan of a leather jacket on elderly housing home in the village. A jacket that knocked him out.


It was in the early 80s when he was invited to play rock and roll in a band where everyone would have the leather jacket. Krantzen had no skinnpaj then.

– I went in jeans jacket all year round, he recalls.


It was a magical experience that, among several other old leather jackets pull on that particular jacket which today goes by the name Krantz jacket and therefore, now sold over 1,000 copies.


Krantz asked if he could buy the jacket and then the uncle gave it away. Then was used it every day for 30 years until it fell apart despite several restorations.

Krantz wrote about it in a column in Bilsport Classic .
-NO It is quite remarkable that one can produce remanufactured metal bodywork Ford 32 but you can not produce a classic, black, smooth leather jacket without destroying it with zippers, rivets and fuzz he wrote.

We might do a few more. Maybe someone feel the same way because they lack the right feeling from the fifties, said Lasse.


In August 2009 was the first.

In August 2009, bought Kalle Cadillac the first Krantz jacket. Krantz Jacket serial number ten.

(Krantz has number 001 and the first nine numbers are ordained for the Krantz family)

It was at the Riverside Cruisers annual meeting in Sandslån where the world’s greatest screeners had once been and wonderful Ångermanälven floated lazily while then spread new competition Krantz Challenge vibrated through the speakers. Donald had with the 2900 motion picture (fair price) slantade and got the serial number 010. The first.

The lady jacket takes off

Six years later, passed in 1000 jackets thanks to damjackorna. At the booth at Elmia 2010 was the fully occupied for four days.

The orders rained into Lasse and we sold from the bed of the project 1959 Apache 4×4 for those who wanted the jacket directly.

Then whirled Eva Börjesson in skirt and high heels, and pulled on a jacket.

Thus the idea was born tilll a jacket and some years later it was a fact after the jacket has been out for consultation to the savvy brides in the hobby.

Today we have sold 950 men’s and 110 women’s jackets, which pushes us well over 1,000 sold jackets.
