Jo-o-Kay was started by John and Kay Simpler of Ardmore, Oklahoma. Originally wanting to name their company Jo-Kay, in a slightly humorous twist of fate, underwear maker Jockey was concerned about confusion and paid for them to add the extra 'O' to the name. Jo-o-Kay did very well for themselves in the suede/leather western jacket obsessed 60s and 70s, with spreads in magazines like the photo excerpt from a 1964 Sports Illustrated spread, included down below.
Waist-length rough-out cowhide suede jacket with leather side panelling and sleeve detail. Brass Scoville snap closure, two hand pockets and leather collar; the body of the jacket is lined in soft, warm Orlon fleece, while the arms have an insulated/quilted lining in a fun pattern.
