    I came across this eBay auction:

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-60...977071?hash=item1cd767a0af:g:l78AAOSwnWldRkZL

    Note the label: "Sandor's Leather Sportswear, Detroit." Same font and tagline as used in the vintage Brooks jackets we know and love.

    Even though it's a women's jacket and not of great interest here, I wonder if I've stumbled across a different line within the Brooks brand.

    Anyone familiar with "Sandor's" jackets?

    Sandor Weiss was the founder of Brooks Sportswear - the company started work making Buco jackets as a sub-contractor.

    Don't see very many with that tag!

    This makes complete sense. Thanks for the reminder about Sandor Weiss.

    I wonder if “Sandor’s” is a forerunner to the Brooks brand, or if it was a name reserved for women’s jackets?
