    Welcome aboard. Can’t tell you anything about it, but it’s a nice looking jacket.

    Recognised the slider, we used these Optis for repairing vintage jackets in The Thrift Shop, mainly because old Talon and Conmar sliders worked on the teeth so we kept the look right. That puller dates from mid 70s to at least mid 80s, I'd guess your jacket was probably made in the very late 80s, looks like a copy of something Aero was making back then, the styling but especially the lining. By 1990 we had loads of folk copying us

    Amazing, you can tell this just by looking on to a zipper, thank you for the info, wonderful to know little history of it, currently it's my daily used, picked in the flea market here in Jakarta. I have few other old jackets, I'll post later, hope you could tell the backround story of them also, thanks agains.

    I thought a previous post mentioned your location as Singapore or some such.

    Yes I'm from Jakarta Indonesia, we have tropical climate here, humidity between 25 to 32'C, we going to have monsoon season soon.

    I ride motorcycles almost every day, most people do here and I need good jacket to protect my self, but I don't know why I can not stop picking up old jacket after I got the first one :)

    I completely understand. I lived in Thailand for a year , and it was a similar climate. Very hot and humid and then very wet during the rainy season . Leather rotted very quickly there.
