Berman's Leather (old school Wilson's), anyone have any experience?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Does anyone have any experience with Bermans' leather jackets? Here's the only thing I could find in the search:

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...

Wilson's leather is bottom of the barrel, and if you are going to ask about a brand, post a link to a picture of the jacket you desire. A budget amount would also be helpful.

Too bad I was not asking for advice on the styling of the jacket, nor for other suggestions. It's a simple question: who has experience with this vintage company's old products?

HI, yes I remember  Berman's  before Wilsons leather. I have a VTG biker jacket on ebay for sale, it is a thicker leather, since bikers wear leathers more for protection, and yes I have to say fashion now days. My jacket is from the 70's. I'm carol6964 on ebay. to answer your question, a biker jacket should be made of a thicker leather. You could also ask the seller about what kind of leather the jacket is, hope this helped.
