No leather vest here.

Jax Teller is ditching his hog for a steed. 

The first photo has been released of Charlie Hunnam in costume as the title character in director Guy Ritchie's upcoming Knights of the Round Table: King Arthur, a retelling of the legend of Camelot.

In a photo Ritchie posted to Twitter on Tuesday, Hunnam — best known for playing leather-loving Jax on FX's recently concluded drama Sons of Anarchy — can be seen wearing a heavy fur coat.

"First day on KORT," Ritchie captioned the pic. 

The Warner Bros. project, also starring Astrid Berges-Frisbey (Pirates of the Carribean: On Stranger Tides) as Guinevere, is set for release on July 22, 2016.

The studio is presumably hoping the film fares better than Disney's 2004 Antoine Fuqua-directed King Arthur, which topped out at $52 million domestically at the box office. That film starred Clive OwenIoan Gruffudd and Keira Knightley
