This is a Brooks café-style jacket in a size 48. I don’t know when it was made, but I guess a size 48 gent was smaller than today. Too bad, because this is a decent jacket. I bought it on eBay in February 2007 for $75 and sold it a few months later because it was too small for me. The leather is lighter than a current model Schott. Other than that, the quality seems similar. It would certainly be usable as a motorcycle jacket. It has zippers where they need to be, a neck that closes up nicely, some adjustment for the waist, and a pleated back. It has a wind-blocking flap behind the main zipper, and a removable pile lining. The zippers are appropriately sized for their intended use. I hope you all enjoy this little photo-essay. Sometimes it is fun to see what the average motorcyclist might have worn a few years ago.
