Wilker Industries WIC Motorcycle Jacket - Is it vintage?

Postby PreserveVintage on Tue Sep 16, 2014 12:23 pm

I need some help dating this jacket. Any idea what era it's from?

There are details that make me think it could be older, and others that don't. There's also next to nothing I've been able to find out about the company, either in Bakersfield or Nashville.

Thanks in advance for any help!

Drawing a blank in searches on the company - but did find other jackets that were older. Seems like a competing company to Alpha Industries..military grade wear.

Based on the features of that jacket - I would be really surprised if it was manufactured before 2000.
