Fully sequinned Frank Usher jacket, with additional bead work hand applied.
This is an amazing piece of work. Glossy and shiny sequins with glass beadwork.
Circ. Late 1980s.
Stunning 1960's Levis jacket complete with patches from the 1960s and 1970s. At some point an additional fringing has been added and the sleeves shortened.
A well loved and well patched jacket with years of life still in it.
1980 Linen blend jacket, with a mock military band style placket to the front. Highlights are more prominent with the use of a cream linen contrast fabric and mock wooden buttons.
A box pleat to the centre back helps to create a loose box fit.

So when I saw this jacket on eBay - it wasn't exactly what i was looking for. My search words had been Band Jacket Cheer Leader - I was thinking more The Beatles 1960's... but who doesn't love a star. Add fringing, silver leather and a neat slim fitting jacket and I couldn't resist.
Yes this is a late 1980's / early 1990's leather jacket. Incorporating leather appliqué, studs, metallic leather and fringing - and with more than a nod to the Dallas Cowboys - its a winner.
