MW Leathers - Black Jacket front
Nineteen Eighties men's padded jacket very similar the design used my many manufacturers of that period. Lovely smooth leather, most likely chrome cowhide.
Jacket rear


It is difficult to know whether one maker copied another or if just one factory churned out jackets that were then labelled with different maker's names. This dirty red jacket is virtually identical to the Highwayman design, I am unable to tell them apart.

I owned this pair of salopettes for a number of years. Good quality smooth surfaced cow hide. Great not to have padded knees. Featuring zipped ankles for wearing with boots.
