This vintage belt was made in the mid-late 1930s. It is tooled with a diamond pattern with alternating diamond clusters of small studs and colored jewels. The belt holes are grommets and there is a tooled keeper. The original belt buckle was missing when I bought the belt and I have added a Japanese reproduction buckle with a whirling logs motif, which is close to what this would have had when new. The loop for the buckle needs to be re-stitched, at some point before I got it, the original buckle was removed and the belt was re-stitched to a smaller position, indicating multiple owners over its lifetime, as someone else has punched additional holes in the end of the belt to expand it. The belt measures 34″ to the smallest hole, 37″ to the largest grommet, and 39 to the last informal (punched later) hole.

This vintage jacket was made in the early 1950s in Detroit, Michigan by the Joseph Buegeleisen Company (Buco) out of horsehide. It is their J-24 D-Pocket model motorcycle jacket. From the style of stop box on the main zipper, with its wide ribs, but without the Talon name, this one was made between about 1952 and 1957. The jacket has a D-pocket map pocket with a rounded cornered cigarette pocket. It has zipped sleeves, snapped lapels, snapped belt loops for an external belt, bars on the epaulettes, zippered side storage, a handwarmer pocket, and bi-swing shoulders. At some point, it appears the original owner either broke the main zipper or gained weight, and added snaps, which are offset from the original zip position.
Chest (pit to pit): 21″ (doubled = 42″)
Shoulder to shoulder: 18″
Sleeve (shoulder to cuff): 25″
