In the year of 1892 D Lewis begins trading as a Tailoring and Outfitters shop. As well as traditional tailoring, D Lewis Ltd begins making and stocking protective clothing for the Gentleman auto sports of flying and motoring and later for motor cycle racing. During the World War D Lewis is contracted to produce tailor-made uniforms. With interest in motorcycling gaining more and more popularity with young and old alike, D Lewis range continuous to expand, more short-bodied leather jackets are now available. In the 60's the Mod's clash with the Rocker's at seaside towns in the south of Britain often both of there gangs were wearing Lewis Leathers clothing. In 2000 Lewis leathers works together with Rintaro Tanaka on an Article in «Free and Easy Magazine». The Article has a significant impact in Japan as it introduces Lewis Leathers as the brand that clothed the UK Rockers youth movements to a wider Japanese public.

The Bronx is Britain's most popular leather jacket. It's a Lewis original, designed and pioneered by Lewis Lathers in England. The Bronx first appeared in 1956 and set the standard for British motorcycle jackets for the next 30 years. The design was based on D Lewis flying jackets from the 1920s and updated for the Cafe Racer riding style popular in the mid 50's.
