Black Racing Jacket by Birdwell Beach Britches

Birdwell Beach Britches’ competition jacket has been a favorite of surfers for over 50 years and now auto enthusiasts have a reason to rejoice. Birdwell Beach Britches has partnered with Rod Emory and Emory Motorsports, another revered SoCal establishment. Emory Motorsports specializes in Porsche 356 and 911 “Outlaws” builds and just like Birdwell Beach Britches, they are a sought after commodity.



Our competition jacket has been part of the Birdwell tradition for over 50 years. A favorite of surfers and surf teams, the comp jacket has been appropriated by street racers and car clubs for its classic style, build quality, and great look.

In a nod to SoCal car culture, the Racing Jacket’s design is evocative of a racing suit. It features a band collar that both wears well with any shirt type and reduces flapping at high speeds, a double zipper to adjust fit for a seated position while driving or riding, and vertical stripes, which naturally make it faster.

  • Features: Band collar. Double brass zipper enclosure. Low profile stripes in black. Signature Birdwell wax pocket with key loop and interior drain hole. Working buttons on cuff. Pre-washed for softness and a worn-in look.
  • Fit: Birdwell jackets are designed to be slim fit. Order one size up if you prefer a looser fit.
  • Fabric: Body and liner layers made of Birdwell’s proprietary 2-ply SurfNyl for durability and comfort.
  • Construction: Double-stitched with high-strength nylon thread. Hand cut and sewn in Santa Ana, CA.
  • Care: Machine wash on gentle cycle. Hang dry only.
