Reproduction or Authentic Schott B-3 Sherling Bomber Jacket

Hi 

Could anyone tell me if my bomber jacket is real fake or reproduction. 

Some of the leather where the buckles are looks like bonded leather to me, it doesn't absorb water like the rest of the leather on the jacket. Do you guys use bonded leather on your bomber jackets? 

The zipper says ideal USA 1 on it. 

The buckles say century Canada on the inside  of the buckle  the Schott brand name is on the outside of the buckle. 

 

There seems to be a lack of labels too. It's supposed to be used but it looks, smells and feels brand new. 

I'm having some trouble uploading photos. It could be the time off the night or the size of maytge image may be to large  so I'll try and upload them soon.

This is our Leatherized Sheepskin jacket style 257S, which we still offer in our line and you can view on our website. The sheepskin leather is processed t produce a finish to the sheepskin for protection, rather then the sueded appearance of sheepskin. This jacket is a replica of a WWII flight jacket a sueded finish would not work for durability in keeping the jacket in condition to deal with a military flight jacket. This Sheepskin jacket was finished this way to provide warmth to the pilots who flew their planes without heat at that time. AS your jacket is worn this finish will wear off to expose the sueded side of the hide, but this does take time, with lots of wear year after year.

Thanks for coming back to me. 

Forgive me but I  don't fully understand your response. 

Is the buckle strap and the tape leatherised? 

How do you authenticate a Schott b-3 257s?

The leather straps and piping are genuine cowhide leather, the shell is Leatherized sheepskin and the pockets are split cowhide. I have already confirmed  ths is a authentic Schott as being our style 257S.
