They made decent issued a2's, I think in the early 90's. I know they were based in Long Island City NY. I got a custom G1 from them and had to file a Paypal dispute to get them to deliver it. I'm not even sure they're still in business.

Hi
Nice talking to you. Thank You Very Helpful. Just Bought On E Bay one of their Racer Jackets. Great Price too $88.00. LOOKS MINT! Did not receive it yet.
I Have in the Past Collected SCHOTT Jackets. Sold most but still have a Few. I have my Original 1974 Brown SCHOTT Bomber Jacket Mint Condition. I bought when I was in High School..

I’ve got G1 made for the coast guard and A2 from them, both on eBay, great jackets, they used to have
An online Store but that seemed to have disappeared about a year ago.
I was looking at a motorcycle jacket here in a pawn shop, done up for a Rolling Stones show
That’s very similar in style to the one you the pics you shared
But it’s just a little to snug to be a practical wearing jacket, if it were 52 like yours I’d be wearing it.
I spoke to them on the phone once, said they would make me a jacket in any leather and color.

Happy to hear your Jackets from them were made Nice. Wonder why they took down their on line sight? Can ‘t find and info on the Computer. Like anything else today Vintage Leather Jackets were made with thicker leather. I’m used to SCHOTT LEATHER. I will post more when I get the Jacket.

Hi
Received the Jacket. Great Condition but Leather Quality is no way like a SCHOTT Leather Jacket. Not as Thick feels Very Thin. Construction and Zippers are Very Good. Just Not Happy with the Leather. I did use Picards Black Conditioner on it. Worked Great!

Thicker leather isn’t necessarily better. Thinner stuff can be a lot more comfortable and easy to wear, as long as it’s tough enough. I used to think that thicker leather was the only way to go, but have found from experience that lighter, more flexible stuff is not so much hard work.

Peter, I hope you warm up to the new jacket. Wear it a while before you decide it's not up to scratch.

The Branded Garments jackets I've got experience with are great, well constructed, and solid. Hope you'll like the jacket better with time, PeterRocco.
