Your British Cycle Leathers jacket is made by Brimaco I believe (British Manufacturing Company) here in Canada. Nice jackets - my favorite jackets are both Brimaco.
Yeah, I really dig it. It's got a great fit and it's pretty unadorned - just my style. looks really cool with my white helmet, and grey boots.
since your last thread i have been checking out the local thrift stores and what not. but being new to the scene i don't know what brands to look for or anything else to look for that matter. i know about horse hide, and i am sure weight says a lot. suffice it to say, i haven't found anything around town remotely interesting, except for a brown fringed out jacket like in easy rider. but i'll just wait to inherit my dads. i just want to know what the rare finds are. later,ryan
What city are you in?
Here's is the last jacket I bought. I don't really know too much about it. It had been relined without any tags, meaty Talon zips, down zip on the D-pocket, cuff zips are on the outside, two studs on each shoulder strap and the belt had been cut off. Not really much of a collector jacket, but I like it all the same.
So if a jacket has all lightning zips, you can assume that it's of UK origin. Likewise Talon zips indicate a jacket from North America. All of which were made up until the 70's.
