The other day Papa was saying that the Military Flight jacket market was pretty much owned by a couple of companies in Japan, The Few, Toys McCoys, Real McCoys and Buzz Rickson. But in the arena of workwear the Bootleggers Reunion reign supreme. These guys are all ex- McCoys employees and have started their own brand. Their speciality is really in Vintage 1930's and 1940's workwear. The leather that they produce in the Papa's opinion is second to none. Check these styles out and take note of the insane Japanese approach to insisting on detail.
This is Papa's favourite, a Black leather version of the classic railman's coat, it is beautifully detailed and is lined in a combination of wool and cotton flannel.
The Collar Tab detail is magnificent, this allowed you to button the jacket at the throat when wearing several layers of garments underneath.
This Motorcycle jacket is typical of the 1930's, the shape is quite fitted assisted by a half belt in the back.
Note the gorgeous use of the two tone effect in the horsehide leather.
This Ranchers jacket has great pocket detailing and would last a life time of hard wearing.
Another beautiful leather motor sports style jacket. The colour is typical of the Bootleggers Reunion quest for authenticity, not every jacket was black or brown.
Unbelievable back detailing explains why these babies cost so much.
