  1. Hi, a quick google search led me to you and I had to write. I sew and repurpose clothing in my spare time and at the moment i am working on a burgundy leather jacket that I bought from a vintage market around 10 years ago. It carries the Reed label and has worn well but unfortunately it is not really wearable as a jacket any more. The uncanny thing is that I live just outside Birmingham in the UK so it is a relatively well travelled jacket. I wish it could tell me it's story and how it came across the big pond!! It has to be at least 30, possibly 40 years old and will soon be a leather bag, it will live on. Now that's quality!!! Best wishes from England x

  2. I have an older Reed leather jacket RN 21528 that is made in China. Is it a genuine Reed jacket? Also, the pocket liners are full of holes now and need repair. Who would best accomplish that?

  7. I just picked up a beautiful vintage jacket that has the Reed label top dead-center inside and the only other label is a tiny tag inside the left pocket that reads: A 2067, 317 613, 10 42. It is a men's jacket with a notched lapel, removable half-belt that attaches near the kidneys with leather buttons, and the belt loops are leather straps that go straight down over the entrance to the hand warmer pockets, which are the only pockets on the jacket. Is this enough information to identify something of when it was made or any other history about it? Thanks for any help.

      Depends on the style, our jackets are true to size, but if you need some room you can go with the 48.

  11. I recently bought a used Reed jacket, RN NO 21528. The tag says "Made in Korea". Did Reed ever make jackets in Korea, or is this a knock off?

  14. I was trying to track down an American clothing line then find the manufacturer and where they were located I found one kinda that news article is beautiful it’s really sad to see the lack of of innovation by such companies to seek outsourcing I’ve never heard of Reed till today and your headquarters is literally one city away if your still in Detroit

  15. I am looking to buy a new riding jacket. I owned a Reed years ago, loved the jacket. I have been told that some jackets were manufactured outside of the US. I also have been told that they are now being made back in the US. How can I identify the jackets that are not US made?

  16. I would like to buy some reed leather as displayed on amazon. Want repair leather seats on my 2001 mb 320 clk. stitches open and some serious damage on corners of seat. Not selling, it is convertible and was getting a lot of 90 to 100 degree sun in southern cal. Just want to patch and glue using loctite leather glue. Will roughen up areas to patched. Will this work and not unpeel. want your comments and recommendation prior to ordering leather. There is an easier solution using Masta Plasta which has a sticky peel of back but I would prefer to use leather. cr
