Hi all, a regular at a bar I used to frequent was a professor and gifted me this jacket before he passed. He’s worn it across the country on his bike, he told me. Wanted to know if there’s any insight into the make of it.

I'm not an expert on biker jackets, but the YKK zipper means it's '80s or later. If it's a biker jacket from after the '80s, my best guess is Schott.

possibly earlier, mid 70s. I would say a schott and if it does not have schott on the snaps that would be a clue to dating it in the 70s, maybe early 80s. that said, however, im not familiar with a water buffalo label on schott jackets. repeat, im not familiar with that, which doesn't mean that they did or didn't use water buffalo.
