Thanks @robxznyc , looks like the pics resolution is too low, I will try to take some new pics and repost them.
Belstaff Gangster jacket has elasticated side panels. Yours doesn't appear to have those so it's a Cougar jacket.

Indeed it has the elasticated sides, sorry that you don't see in the previous pictures, now you can see a bit of it.

The owner sold it to me as a Cougar and I was thinking what a pity it is not a Gangster. When it arrived I saw the elastics and thought "maybe they make now Cougars like this or what"...anyway a funny confusion, bought a jacket thinking it was another thing and got lucky: it's a gangster ;)

Could anyone tell me if this jacket looks authentic? And if so possible age or model?

Where are Belstaff currently making jackets? I've seen a few Racemaster jackets that carry a Made in Vietnam tag. Pretty sure they are genuine. The quality on the finish looks very good. Anyone got back Vietnam made Belstaff or know anything about them.

Does anyone know where I can get a zip-in/zip-out Belstaff jacket liner? I just purchased this jacket second-hand, not sure the exact make of it, but the removable liner was missing. It's a zip-in/zip-out style liner, and I can't find one anywhere. I did get a great deal on a full-sleeved quilted liner, but it's a snap-in style, and this... has no snaps, unfortunately.

Honestly, I'm not particular if it's even a Belstaff brand zip-in liner, as long as it fits.

I recently picked up a vintage Belstaff Roadmaster II. Does anyone know anything about this particular model? It supposedly dates from the 70s, but I’ve also read that Belstaff didn’t introduce the Roadmaster until the 80s.

there really is not much reliable historical information out there about Belstaff compared to Barbour.

Update: I'm thinking this is a Roadmaster of some sort, because it has zippered pockets at the shoulders and elbows with soft armour. No Roadmaster branding, and the interior care tag shows it was made in Italy, so this is after 1990. It has a high-visibility stripe on the back of the collar, and a zip-in style liner, which is missing and I want to replace. How can I go about that?
