    Hi folks, I'm trying to find more info on this particular leather jacket brand, Garuda Leather.

    It seems that there isn't any info whatsoever online about this brand's origin or where they manufacture the jackets, but I've found a few pieces on online auction sites that are based in Asia (Japan, Hong Kong, Indonesia).

    The only thing I know so far is they make Buco J-24 style horsehide jackets, and that the brand started in 1955. I'm not sure if Garuda leather still exists today.

    If you know where I can buy their jacket, or can point me to their physical address or online store, please let me know!

    Yes you're right. But I doubt the jackets are manufactured in Indonesia though

    Looks like a pretty high end repro. Japanese would be my guess.

    Yeah, possibly Japanese, but I've google translated "Garuda Leather Jacket" and search the Japanese words.... still nothing. No website, no blogs, nothing.
