Block-Bilt leather jackets were made in California by the H&L Block Company. Originally a glove maker, the company diversified into leather jackets in the 1920s. Their factory was originally at 149 2nd St, San Francisco, California, and relocated to 1563-1571 Mission, San Francisco, CA. The company remained in the Block family, and further expanded its product line to include other articles of California sportswear jackets.
