The BUCO RIDER is a rare, possibly one-off design of the old Joseph Buegeleisen company in Detroit, combining a tab snap collar with classic BUCO extended D-pocket construction. A fantastic look, both modern and vintage. Made alongside our famed BUCO J23 and PJ27 jackets, with identical materials -- and what materials! Matchless 4.0+ oz. chrome-tanned Horsehide Leather (lighter weights avail. if req.), from our own tannery. Ultra-heavy, ultra-strong, with the beautiful grain of genuine American Horsehide when broken in. And it doesn't take long either. 100% Flight Satin Nylon lining with Drill Cotton Interlining (for increased wind resistance when riding). US NOS Scovill Brass Zippers. Solid Brass side adjustment buckles.
the workmanship in the shots above. This is a production jacket,
nothing more, nothing less. Not a special piece produced just
for photography on the web site. It fits as good as it looks
and was born for tough, continuous use in every kind of weather.
Astonishing American craftmanship. Yet, because the BUCO RIDER
is pure function -- check out, for example, the elaborate
biswing/gusset construction -- there's a sinewy beauty that arises from honesty
and authenticity. Expensive? Hell, no, these are
absolute bargains, heirlooms. For those who know, dreams are possible.
