I think it was on imdb someone pointed out it's an old Honda racing jacket. I've seen photos of Ryan Gosling wearing it out in public after the film was released so I think he either supplied his own costume or got to keep the jacket after the film wrapped.

By the way, amazing film - 9/10.

That's an amazing jacket, and if it is a personal item that the costuming department did not create, then I want to venture to say that it's an extremely rare jacket. I couldn't find anything earlier on it, not from Honda anyways.

I've been searching high and low now for that last few days going through interviews with the cast and director and can't find anything about the jacket. I revisited imdb to look for the original post but couldn't find any info. I've searched through vintage jacket websites for matching details like the red and white under-laying, ribbed arms etc nada.

I think until Ryan or Derek state where they got it from we'll probably never know.

On a side note, I definitely think they went thrift store hunting for it. The budget on the film was only 3 million and I notice the characters only wear a few different outfits, as is the case in real life. The jacket seems very snug on Ryan. The sleeves only just reach the wrist, he never does it up and the back ends just slightly above his ribs. If it wasn't for the jumper he wears underneath it would look a little dis-proportioned. Not that these are bad things, they just lead me to think it was a case of taking what they could get rather than getting the perfect fitting jacket.

I found some high resolution images if anyone is good at spotting detail like zips and buttons that might help identify it.

This one is the best for detail.

Any luck anyone? I've been searching for months now...

I found this but too scared to order after reading the hall of shame! It feels like one of the sites that cannot be trusted:
