I never came here looking for a original jacket but thanks to MaydayWei, Mulceber and Lord Flashheart with input from B-Man2 and Jorgeenriqueaguilera amazing history and with the help of @Brettafett came across this.
Tha jacket came without creases in the sleeves, the zipper still has blackened teeth. Cuffs, knit & mouton immaculate. In fact it almost seems unworn which then worried me. Is this a defective jacket?
There are no defects I can find except for the very slight wonky zip detail. Beginners luck maybe. The fit is perfect, slightly ‘athletic’ snug but great for work. Now a question that would only make sense on this jacket forum…’SHOULD I WEAR IT?’
