Leather Jacket

Post by hoby85 » Tue Apr 13, 2010 11:33 pm

Just wondering if anyone knows anything about Robin zippers. I have a leather jacket with one and thought someone could date it from the zipper. http://cgi.ebay.ca/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vie ... :MESELX:IT

Robin is a vintage zipper company, although they must have been very small. My reference has only one example of their zipper tabs. It's narrower and it's from the 70s.

The presence of care instructions on the jacket tells us that it's most likely not 60s. 80s may be a possibility.
Have vintage Elvis tees? Let me know!
