This isn't the jacket I got for my gal, this is the jacket that was on ebay a couple years ago. The seller wanted 3000 bucks plus for it. ridiculous. this is most likely pre 1933, before the ffa settled on a uniformly official design for their jacket.s  Apparently there were brown and black ones as well as blue ones prior to 1933. this is the only brown one I've seen in circulation.

This was in my eBay recommendations today seems a crazy low price considering the jacket in your post
Thought someone may like to pick it up as they don't ship to UK and to small for me
111032534780 is the item no. To put into eBay search

thanks for the heads up, but this style of ffa jacket is a dime a dozen.  Even if it's actually from the 50s (there is really no way to tell apart the jackets from the 50s and 60s as most were producted by the same manufacturer and they have the same tag.  You can tell the 40s jackets in this style apart by the difference in the tag and a also sometimes by a difference in the color and the wieght/density of the fabric.

I'm sure you could find yourself one of these for less than $25 USD from a seller that will ship it the UK if you just check ebay regularly.

You may also want to check etsy, I've seen them fairly cheap there as well.

Serge Denime -- I'd be happy to keep my eyes peeled for an FFA jacket for you, as these guys have mentioned they're relatively common and as a result reasonably priced.  Don't pay inflated ebay/etsy  prices, let me help you out. -- shoot me a PM with specifics and I'd be happy to find one at a more reasonable price for you.

Bob thanks for the very kind offer, I'm sure i'll be getting back to you on that one.
Wanted to share this now it seems I've cracked how to post pics.

This is a jacket I picked up a year or so ago from Farah, I had no idea they'd started as a workwear manufacturer and always just associated them with Farah slacks something my dad would've worn but certainly not 'Dad Style'

The jacket was incredible quality and lined in Corduroy, something I'd not seen before. Each piece in the collection was ltd to 90 garments to celebrate their 90th year.

The other piece I was lucky enough to get was the chambray workshirt.

To jacket was to small for me and sold to a guy in Japan, before I'd heard of Denimbro





Has anyone seen/got any of the other pieces as this whole collection looks so good
