Dating back to 1933, the "Joseph Buegeleisen Co." in 1933 were specialists in motorcycle accessories and saddlebags. In 1947, they launched "Buco", a full apparel line with the slogan: “Motorcycle jackets, gloves, caps, belts and bags all cut and sewn by life long craftsmen dedicated to the task at hand”. The Real McCoy's purchased the Buco license and continues to produce goods that live up the original standard.

The Buco Checkered Cord Jacket takes its pattern inspiration from finish lines and victory flags - as for much of the history of Motorsports, colorful and patterned flags were the only way for drivers and officials to communicate during a race. The pattern really took off in the 1950s and remained prevalent through the 70s, but is still recognized today despite waning popularity.

The jacket itself takes some inspiration from FFA club jackets - FFA, aka the Future Farmers of America, is a student organization that connects young people with American agricultural production, and adopted micro-cord jackets of a similar style in the 1930s. The Buco jacket, just like the original FFA jackets, features a corduroy body, snap placket, side tab adjusters, welted handwarmer pockets, and a pull chain breast pocket.

It's made from a comfortable medium weight 100% cotton cord fabric, featuring a checkerboard pattern and an unlined interior. The hardware is all custom, and all tonal - featuring black snaps, side buckles, and a gold zipper on the chest. The fit is classic, with a slightly short (but certainly not cropped) torso and plenty of room through the chest.

Fits true to size. Wash cold and hang dry.
