This is a classic biker jacket made by Jofa/Jofama in Sweden sometime in the late 1960's. Niss Oskar Jonsson started the Jofa company back in 1926 and since the 30/40's they've been one of the biggest leather manufacturers in Sweden and the company is still active today.
The jacket is made out of goat skin leather with a sheep skin lining. A perfect jacket if you want to wear a leather jacket when weather gets colder. It's got three front pockets, one buttoned and two zipped. On the front of the jacket, you've got a belt for adjusting the waist width.
The jacket is in excellent condition considering its age. The leather is soft and beautifully worn in and the lining is still intact with some slight wear near the bottom of the jacket. One of the previous owners has also made a small repair, fastening the lining with some stitches. Pockets are intact and the zippers are working as they should. The front zipper is working but the beginning of the zipper is missing a small metallic part which makes the zipper not as smooth working as it should. Changing the zipper is recommended if one would like to use the zipper a lot. These jackets are not easy to come across, especially in this condition.
The last picture is taken from a Jofa/Jofama catalouge from 1967/68.
