Bucos are the nicest leathers I've handled in person, also the thickest. Their cuts are decently slim for a traditional racer.

I could be wrong, but I don't think they're owned by RMC.

Buco is an old heritage company that started in the 1930s and had their heyday in the '50s. They were sold to Ford's seatbelt company, American Safety Equipment, in 1966. ASE introduced a new line of Buco helmets and started to focus less on leathers.

I think the company disappeared for a while, and was (relatively) recently picked up by another American brand. Like a lot of heritage revivals, there are guys who buy old brand names and revive them, but that doesn't mean the company has been continually operating the whole time or that the manufacture and make are necessarily the same.

RMC makes Buco repros, and like many of their repros, they even repro the label (meaning the original Buco garment labels). They do a lot of the classic models, like the J-100.

Anyway, if someone knows better than me, I welcome the correction. But I think the current Buco is an American company and owned by heritage-revivers.

doubt you would be wrong

 

I remember seeing this:

"Buco is the legendary motorcycle clothing brand (started by Joseph Buegeleisen), and is famous for the J-100 and J-24 jackets among others. Since acquiring the licence for it, Hitoshi Tsujimoto has managed to breathe life into a brand that had faded away."'

 

Not sure what acquiring license means

i would guess he has the rights to use the name for his items and reproduce but isn't the actual owner. Anyways who knows, but they do make nice jackets

Yea, I assume it's just the rights to use the Buco name and logo, since IP protections for fashion designs is weak to non-existent.

Gold zippers on purple-ish leather?? ehm, looks odd. Would be nice to see how it looks worn.

I don't know about the jacket, but that poem is embarrassing.

I agree poems inside jackets are a bit much,

Did not read it btw

I love that jacket, shitty poem included. It's obviously written in a language he doesn't totally grasp, yet it feels pretty sincere. It's a terrible great poem.

isamu katayama is very passionate about backlash, i watched an interview where he talks about his love for biker jackets and how he used to ride with his dad. he spends a lot of time creating all sorts of dyes for the leathers and etc. the poem is probably very sincere...
