Trying to find out more about my motorcycle jacket!

I got it from a guy who got it from an estate sale. I've looked on line and seen some guys at leather shops but nobody knows anything about it. It's thick as hell and I've been told the leather comes from the cows shoulder. I've also been told it's old and when my son is my age (I'm 35 he's 3) the jacket will likely be in the same condition because it's such a heavy leather. Any info any body might have would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

It looks a lot like the jackets I saw & still see being sold in motorcycle shops and some
Leather stores here in Canada during the 90s till now, most coming from
India or Pakistan, many had thick grainy leather and boxier fit.
there are two shops in Edmonton that still bring them in along with a couple
Motorcycle shops with each with a slightly but similar label to your picture.
They can be quite good beater jackets and tended to be a first motorcycle jacket
As they sell from $150 to 300 depending on the store.
I saw a lot when I was a motorcycle riding instructor.

That's cool! Thanks for the info! I could find absolutely nothing online with that tag. Heavy leather is right... This thing weighs like 8lbs!
