And this helpful fellow from a google search:
Basically, they were the company before Wilson's Leather became Wilson's Leather. I am considering a vintage leather Berman's motorcycle jacket, but I have no clue as to the quality of the leather.
Does anyone know if it is ultra thin fashion leather, mid grade 'normal' fashion stuff, or actual motorcycle-grade thick leather? IIRC, current Wilson's used thinner leather, but I don't know if they used to be better...
