Nigel Tufnel's Leather Jacket

Yep, for my first post here I'm asking for information on the leather jacket worn by the co-lead guitarist of Spinal Tap in the 1984 film. Here is the story: A few years ago I acquired a leather motorcycle jacket from a vintage shop in Brooklyn. It's old and worn and I like wearing it and until last night I had not seen another quite like it.

Last night I was watching the film and I noticed Christopher Guest's character is wearing the same jacket. It has the same seams. The shoulder gussets in the back are identical. The brass snap at the collar matches as well. Anybody here have any idea what brand made this jacket? My jacket is entirely devoid of labels and branding and this is the only clue that I have.
