Good afternoon, dear friends, I really want to find this particular leather jacket or an identical one that will be 99.9% similar to this jacket. I've been looking all over the internet for over a month and can't find it. Can you help me find this model? Many thanks for considering my request.

To me it looks like a suit jacket style collar, popped. Sleeve - body attachment is similar to what you'd see on a leather blazer.

I'd say it's a 70s lambskin fantasy piece.

To me it looks like it is inspired by french hunting jackets.
This could be a one off custom, but that collar is a hunting style to me.

I googled "french hunting jacket" and this came up:

Not 99.9% the same, but similar idea.
Thank you very much. The jacket is really similar: collar, buttons.
But you are right - Up to 99.9% authenticity does not pull.
Thanks for your reply and help

One look at the collar and I was thinking Arnys Forestière, which has been made in every material imaginable. Wouldn’t be surprised if there were leather ones too.

Very european design. Collar and button holes give off very rural vibes, I wouldn‘t disagree with hunting jacket. In fact it shares a lot of design elements with classic Bavarian „Trachten-Lederjacken/Janker“ as well which again are very rural in design, even though made mostly in suede.

Thank you very much for your feedback and response. Indeed, there are similarities. I'm already thinking that maybe this jacket was made to order. I can't find an authentic one all over the internet.

More likely it’s the fact that it’s the late Joe Dassin 50 years ago, so the jacket styles that were available at the time are very different from those available now.

You’d be best off searching a French auction site for 1970s jackets. I believe @Marc mndt and/or @Carlos840 have mentioned such sites before.

My dad used to play his albums all the time in my childhood so I know his songs by heart even all these years later.

Thank you very much for your reply and advice. I will try to find an authentic jacket in French auctions too. I love creativity, songs, and, of course, the style of the great Joe Dassin, and that's why this jacket is interesting to me.
Once again thanks a lot

One of the best love songs ever:


Not many pictures of him in leather jackets out there.
Indeed,
it is not for nothing that this song is included in the list of "Top 100 Ballads" of the world.

P.S - By the way, in this video, Joe Dassin is in this jacket
