    Well, it could be a Rock & Republic or John Varvatos leather jacket since it would fit their style. Belstaff, John Richmond and Rick Owens are the another brands that pop in my mind. Keep in mind that most jackets use in movies are made for the movie only. They are not widely sold. I pick up for my mom a red leather jacket made for Jada Pinkett Smith for the Matrix 2 movie and it was the only one they have in store. It was one of the 10 jackets made for the movie and one of the 4 that was not used in the movie. The sizing was pretty small so, they had a hard time selling it.

    Sturm07: thanks a lot for the tips, but I'm afraid none of them seemed to be the creator of the jacket :(
    I did some more searching around to see what other clothes have been used in the series and almost all previous jackets have been from several different brands, so I guess it's like finding a needle in a haystack ;\


    Scarpe: what do you mean?

    "bespoke leather worker"

    :teach: bespoke: dealing in or producing custom-made articles.

    Show him your photo and he will make you your leather jacket.

    Thanks, but I don't want a custom-made jacket. Not to mention it'll cost a lot more.
    I am almost sure that the button thing on the shoulder is a logo of sorts. *SOMEONE* has to recognize it

    Why?

    This is not a forum primarily concerned with leather goods.

    MTM is your best bet - or doing without.

    There are plenty of choice.

    I owned a cafe horsehide from AeroClothing, excellent quality and indestructible jacket.

    Recently Ralph Lauren Black label has one as well from the last season.
