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 JH-1 was the very first motorcycle jacket produced by Buco, and the Real McCoy's have faithfully reproduced it down to the stitch. Featuring a custom aniline-dyed Shinki horsehide, and lined with a 100% wool red and black square check plaid. The custom horsehide used is entirely vegetable-tanned, and features a light brown tea core that will come through with wear.

Featuring two zipped handwarmer pockets, a single chest pocket, and one interior pocket, you've got plenty of space for storage. The fit can be adjusted with an attached half-belt (featuring DOT snaps for easy adjusting). The jacket lacks epaulets and features a one-piece (no bi-swing) back, highlighting the masterful hide selection and cutting that takes place at The Real McCoy's HQ.

True to size. Cleaning should be by a leather jacket specialist only.
