This is my first post here, i read this interesting forum for years as a leather jackets enthusiast but i decided to register only Yesterday. But now i think it's better to directly go to the topic : recently i bought a more unique than rare for Italy Excelled motorcycle jacket. And then because size 36 is super rare. It's a well made jacket in my opinion ,the leather is heavy and thick a little less than my Schott sm to be honest but generally i can say it's a good quality product,my other jackets are all Schott and this one isn't bad near them.
I think it could be made in steerhide because it "cracks" in a very similar way to my Schott sm. The pockets zips are unbranded,but have the wonderful chain pulls like the Perfecto. The guy that sold me the jacket didn't know from what era it is because it bought in a vintage store in England some years ago.
I did some research on the web,specially ebay auctions. Now i have some idea but i'm a bit confused : some jackets have the same label,the same front zip and the seller say 60's.
Some other have same zip,same label but a little bit different belt and claimed to be from 80s. Some other say 70s. But i see some other ones that have a leather label and different zipper that are dated between late 60s and early 70s At the end i see other styles by Excelled similar to A2 and G1 with the same zip of mine and are between late 70s and early 80s I hope to don't confuse you and i'll post some pics of my jacket hoping someone could help me dating it.
Thank you very much since now and Happy new Year!!! Dec 31, 2. Messages: 8, You'll need to have a second shot at posting your pics. Easy way to do it is click the icon on the 'Quick Reply' which has picture with a tree in it. Then you click 'select file', find the Download folder and select the pic you want and then click 'upload file', and that'll get you there. Dec 31, 3. Thanks for the help but unfortunally when i click the icon with the tree the only thing that appears is a window with the space to insert the URL code What is the problem?
Images size? Anyway,you've got a very nice avatar,i like so much the Thin White Duke character. Dec 31, 4. Messages: 1, Emar zippers and YKK were used on Excelled jackets in the 70's through to the mid 80's when I believe they moved to YKK zips throughout although old stock may have hung around Other than if the style is unique e. Dec 31, 5. Maybe this time it could work Sorry for the 2 posts. Dec 31, 6. Many many thanks Plumbline! So it could be between 70s and early 80s. No no,the style isn't absolutely unique,it's the classic "Brando" Perfecto style,i said more unique than rare because i've never seen an Excelled jacket here in Italy before.
Infact i bought it also because is something rare here. Dec 31, 7. Alas that doesn't really help It should be noted that the "genuine Leather" title could mean that the jacket is manufactured from steer, sheep, pig, goat or horse Dec 31, 8.
That brings back memories. I had one exactly like that that I practically lived in for 10 years in the 80's to early 90's. Last edited: Dec 31, Dec 31, 9. Messages: 10, I'd say s. Dec 31, Messages: 12, I had a few excelled jackets in the 80s, during high school and college. I did a bit of growing in these years, and went through 3 different sizes. Being made in the U. Would make it no newer than late 80s.
They went overseas for production after that. The earliest one I had, bought new in about 79 or 80, had recycled wool inside the quilted liner, the next two I had one in about 84, another about 88 were filled with polyester. I can't see from your pics, but the ones I had all had square ends on the shoulder straps.
I haven't seen that feature on older jackets, they had pointed or rounded ends on the straps. So I'd say - square straps would be no older than late 70s, and what's inside the lining could narrow it down to even more. They were cowhide, by the way, and pretty decent quality. They were a pretty solid middle of the road quality at the time. By no means top shelf, but not cheap crap by any means. I cannot speak to current standards of quality, as I have never owned one of the offshored ones.
Wow,many many thanks everybody! If for "shoulder straps" you intend the epaulets i've Always seen this word for that part mine are squared at the ends. Because i see some similar jackets that are still made in the USA and are claimed form the '80s that have a completely different label with an American Flag,an Eagle and "Excelled" written in Yellow.
Sorry if sometimes my English is bad,but i don't write or speak it everyday. Yes, all mine had that same label. And yes, by shoulder straps I meant epaulets. I'd guess mid 80s because of the acrylic content of the lining. Like I said, the first one I had was recycled wool. Nearly everyone I knew had an excelled jacket back in those days. The ones who didn't had Sears brand.

These days, zippers are so commonplace on clothing that they largely go unnoticed—until they stop working that is. Few realize how much of a breakthrough they were roughly a century ago, and how they changed the construction of not only clothing, but also luggage, camping gear, and sporting goods in general. Now popular in repro garments, Talon zippers originally started under a different name entirely. Unfortunately for him and unknowing consumers, it was a bit of a dud.

Сегодня мой брат Клаус нанял девушку, очень красивую. С рыжими волосами.
Когда улица сделала поворот, Беккер вдруг увидел прямо перед собой собор и вздымающуюся ввысь Гиральду. Звон колоколов оглушал, эхо многократно отражалось от высоких стен, окружающих площадь. Людские потоки из разных улиц сливались в одну черную реку, устремленную к распахнутым дверям Севильского собора.
Беккер попробовал выбраться и свернуть на улицу Матеуса-Гаго, но понял, что находится в плену людского потока. Идти приходилось плечо к плечу, носок в пятку.
