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.
*CONDITION 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!
Will fit multiple sizes please see below measurement to ensure sizing accuracy.

We love the fit and look of this green satin bomber style jacket so much it nearly stayed in our own closet!
Tons of authentic patina on this one so not for the customer who wants pristine condition. No, this one is all about the story and living!
Made by “Butwin” sometime between late 1940- early 1960’s chainstitch embroidered “Firestone” likely from the tire company either for promotion or employee wear.
This look is great for male or female paired with jeans and a t-shirt. I can also see it worn over a dainty floral dress for some of the much coveted hi-low feminine/ masculine dressing style.
There’s a good drape to this satin fabric and from years of washing, fading, wearing so it looks great worn a bit oversized. Please see measurements below for exact fit. Study all pictures carefully and please don’t hesitate to ask for any other details before your purchase!
