Just picked up this nice black leather Border Patrol uniform jacket from the 'Bay for under a hundred bucks. It's brand new/never worn and was marked as a size Large Long (about a 46 L). Made by VF Imagewear who make uniforms for commercial and industrial companies. Leather is thick and grainy cowhide and the knits are wool. Heavy duty number 10 brass zip. The quality and workmanship is outstanding (I'd say about par with Schott or G&B). From what I could research, the Border Patrol issued these in the 1990's to early 2000's timeframe but these are now no longer part of their official uniform. I've seen some in brown as well as black and most were marked as goatskin but the label on this one states cowhide (and made in USA!).
