Buco J-24 Horsehide Leather JacketBlack
Buco is most known for its J-100 and J-24 jackets. After acquiring the licence for production, Hitoshi Tsujimoto continues to revive the brand with state of the art pieces.
This black biker jacket is a reproduction of the 1950 Buco J-24 motorcycle jacket, from which nearly every leather jacket style is based on. The tried and tested durable horse hide leather used is vegetable-tanned and aniline finished. The gold Talon zippers were revolutionary when first used for the original design and are a detail providing further authenticity to this jacket. The Epaulettes, flaps on the front and back, numerous press buttons and attached, asymmetric pockets complete the classic biker look.
Thanks to The Real McCoy's vast vintage archive, they're able to design the J-24 down to the finest detail. Yet another example why they can't be faulted.
Model is 5'11" and wears size 38

Founded in Detroit in 1933, Buco pairs the first syllable of the founders last name, Buegeleisen, with the common abbreviation for company. A prominent manufacturer of motorcycle parts and accessories, Buco produced windshields, mufflers and other hardware alongside jackets, boots and other hard-wearing leather goods. The Horsehide rider’s jackets produced during the 1940s-50s were their masterpieces.
The quality and perfection of these jackets remains the gold standard for leather jacket design still today. Although often worn as fashion pieces in the modern day, Buco’s primary concern was to produce gear that would protect riders, as summed up in their motto “protection through research”. Buco and its products faded into history, but have now been brought back to life. Each model is produced to the precise specifications of the originals, using horsehide of the highest quality, tanned in traditional methods and authentically ageing cotton thread.
