Police have released a picture of the jacket worn by the man whose body was recovered from Butterley Reservoir, in Marsden, on Friday.
Officers hope the image of the Trespass jacket, which is blue with red shoulders and detailing, will help them trace the man's next-of-kin.
Detectives said their "enquiries remain ongoing" as they are still "yet to identify the man".
“The man’s death is not being treated as suspicious, but we are continuing to ask for the public’s help in identifying him and I would ask for anyone with information to contact us.
“You could be a relative, friend, colleague or neighbour – someone out there will hopefully either recognise the jacket or the description of the man and come forward with information to help us establish who he is.”
Anyone with information should contact Kirklees CID on 101 (ref: 13190018679).
