This is a vintage 60s Swiss Military Motorcycle Jacket with a detachable liner. A rare bit of military kit that has the ultimate utilitarian look. The jacket was uniquely created for motorcyclists within the Swiss military. It’s exactly why it's as bold as brass and as sturdy as a military kit comes. It’s able to beat the harsh cold as well as the unrelenting wind and it looks top drawer. It comes equipped with reinforced elbows, a detachable faux fur liner and one large chest patch pocket as well as a multitude of button fastenings.
Used and in good vintage condition with general signs of wear, abrasion and discolouration which gives it a cracking washed and worn look. There is some fraying to the buckle fastening at the hem. The buckle neck fastening is also missing. However this does not detract from the beauty of this jacket and it is still in overall good condition and has a look that can't be rivalled. Freshly steamed and ready for a new owner.
All my vintage listings unless otherwise stated are true vintage and have been worn before, therefore they will typically show signs of wear, which is all part of the vintage look and appeal.

HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR SIZE: Please DO NOT solely rely on the listed size for your correct fit. Designers often use different measurements for sizes depending on the overall look they desire, so sizes can not only vary brand to brand but also within the same brand. Also, for vintage and pre-worn items the shape may have changed after years of being worn. The best way to ensure your correct fit is to compare the measurements listed to a similar item that fits you well.
