Definitely authentic and one-of-kind! This wonderful patch adorned, semi-destroyed jacket is from the 1950’s/1960’s and features 13 unique auto themed patches. Each one more fabulous then the next.
One of the harder pieces of history to part with, it looks amazing on. Worn fitted or oversized and drapey this jacket is just teeming with styling possibilities.
The back features a huge chain-stitched “Beeliners Vancouver, Washington” patch. The front and sleeves have patches from all over the Pacific Northwest Canada, Vancouver, BC, Gladstone, Portland, Goshen, Oregon. Many of these patches featuring awesome graphics and iconic go-cart imagery.
Please note all the “flaws” in photos. Right pocket is torn and damaged, though still functional...could be fixed. We left this one as found because we love things that add to the charm of an item. You’ve got to “get it”. This isn’t for you if you like things pristine!
