    Interesting that the Saudermilitia jacket also has a YKK zipper.

    I think you are right. There are some buckles that don't seem to have any function on the jacket. People just took a glut of surplus pants and found something creative to do with them.

    It also looks like it sold it with that description.

    You can definitely see where are the parts came from in this picture.

    My wife is very supportive of my hobbies (more of a car / gun guy) and lets me run rampant with them. Leather jackets have not crossed the threshold into "hobby" territory (yet) That, and her fashion sense is way better than mine.

    Yes- The wife has full veto power. She'll tolerate for a little while, as she did with my German Police motorcycle jacket from a few years ago. That one lasted a whole month but it was far less "busy" than this one.

    Definitely, I have to give it a shot, rather do that than regret selling it later.

    I'm going to try wearing it for a while. Mrs HonestHat is not a fan but it's growing on me.

    Thank you for the info. Whoever made this jacket, they did an amazing job, I would have never thought these start life out as pants.

    Can't find the exact same Jacket but the 1950's Swedish Army motorcycle jacket uses the same buttons and has a similar lining.

    It doesn't have a label. Being a child of the 80's. Chess King was the only mall store that came to mind for selling cheap leather jackets at that time.

    a pocket on the arm and the position of the arm straps are the only differences I notice from photo of the Swedish jacket . It's definitely not as old as that one.
