This is a real gem of a shop that opened near the end of last year. They were originally in Great Portland Street over the other side of Fitzrovia then they shut up shop in 1993. Now they are back with a new shop.
This is part shop and part museum to motorcycle history. They have a classic range of bikers leathers from vintage to modern. Also a great range of classy cotton t-shirts.
A beautiful shop and a lovely addition to Fitzrovia. We'll be going back for an in-depth review.
Super friendly service and great vintage style products. Wish we could've bought the store, but settled on a pair of boots and tee.
Lewis leathers is almost like a trip to Italy , where quality leather is produced.
It's a beautiful shop, beautifully designed, and each and every product is superb.Shoes, jackets, you name it, their quality is second to none.The class, the style , they are remarkable and never fail to impress me.
Lewis leathers produce a class product. it's as simple as that. I don't think anyone who owns Lewis boots Jackets.whatever, would question the quality. I have never (that means never) met anyone who owns Lewis leathers kit, ever question the quality. People will, dare I say, slag them off because they are highly priced, and will often seek to rubbish them perhaps because they cant afford them. Loads of things id like, can't afford, but that is no reason for me to slag them off. You can buy cheaper kit, that's for sure. However, put their kit on, try their boots, try their jackets on, and you will say "ya know what, highly priced (expensive implies not value for money) but class kit You get what you pay for, at least that's what I think. Lewis leathers really is more than buying a pair of boots, more than buying a jacket. It's the kind of kit you buy once, guaranteed to last many, many years.it class kit. It is not high fashion, it is not the kind of kit you buy and change next year. If you are the kind of buyer who likes to buy, and change and change again then Lewis kit is probably not the right buy. It's highly priced, would be a waste to buy and just change it because it is a lot of money. However, if you are the type of buyer that likes to buy something stylish, something class, buy it once knowing it will last, and are happy to (in due course) wear kit a few years old (Still looking great mind you) then go ahead and buy Lewis leathers. Highly priced, high qualityclass kit that you will never regret buying! Note below added 8th June 2012.
Since buying these boots I had a problem with the zip one of the boots. However, because of matters I wont go in to now, it was some timemonths in fact before I got round to sending them back to Lewis leathers. Delighted to report that boots were exchanged for another brand new pair. Faulty zip? Hey things go wrong. Its not things going wrong that the problem, it's how you put it right. Delighted to report Lewis leathers stepped up to the mark and did the right thing. No complaints from me. You get what you pay for. Simple as that.
Britain's oldest manufacturer of of the finest classic leather motorcycle jackets, boots, gloves and accessories.
Established in 1892.
D Lewis, 'Clothier' made suiting, coats and shirting in Londons East end. Its retail shop was at 124 Great Portland Street, also known as Motor Alley when it was the centre of Motoring & Motorcycle retail. D Lewis was quick to spot a need for warm and protective clothing for this new breed so leather coats and jackets were added to the range circa 1918 onwards. Specialist clothing for motorcycle racers and militay airmen was introduced in the 1920s and continued to be produced during WW2. After the war motorcycles increased in popularity and D Lewis concentrated on this range, becoming the largest UK specialist retailer. 1956 saw the Lewis Leathers label created for younger wearers it now clothed the Ton Up boys and Rockers along with the top TT & Speedway racers of the day . The mid 70's saw the Punks arrive and The Clash & Sex Pistols joined the fold. Continuously producing leather clothing to this day, our brand is still enjoyed by a wide variety of people.
