I bought a leather jacket from Cortech, not sure if it's made in USA but Cortech is an American company. Planning to buy Cortech boots and gloves as well. Great products and prices !!

RE: USA made motorcycle jackets
I've been trying to lose weight and when I get to my goal and stay there for a bit I'm treating myself to a classic horsehide cafe racer jacket. I was thinking of trying to find a good vintage one or go with a Schott or Real McCoy. However I found this company Hillside and for half the money of a Schott and custom built to my size looks very tempting.

Horsehide huh? That's a new one for me. Looks like a classic jacket though.

RE: USA made motorcycle jackets
If you can't find a good fit with an off the rack jacket, a custom jacket is well worth the extra $$$.
Try Bates, you can get a perfect fit and get what you want in terms of material, vents, pockets, armor or padding, etc.
My arms are too short and too thick; sport coats are easy to alter, M/C jackets are not easy.
I bought a Bates leather jacket 20 years ago, still a favorite jacket, but it seems it shrunk a little in the waist.

I’ll second Fox Creek Leather, decent folks and their store has a good variety plus they do custom.
