Found an old coaching jacket by a company called Jasco. Has anyone ever heard of them? Do they still exist, and does anyone know anything at all about them?

Good jacket too, but kind of old.

There's been a thread on this before. Company set up in Somerset by Prof. John Saunders in the 70's. It won't adhere to new regulations.

My first ever fencing kit was Jasco. This was in about 1979/1980. From what I remember it was ok kit and cheaper than LP, but could take ages to arrive. I also think that it was mostly Soudet kit imported from France. Needless to say Jasco is no longer going as a company. I think it ceased trading sometime in the 1980s. I think that Soudet have merged or been taken over by Prieur. Their kit is pretty good stuff and available from
www.prieur-sports.com.
