That's classy and very well done. Their spring line has a lot of really nice items too.

I was watching that on ebay... The arrow pockets are KILLER!  I was in FFA, but don't have my jacket. Regrets

Yeah. I'm out of the country til late April, but I'll try to remember to post it when we're settled in at home. The back is just about the same as any other FFA jacket you've seen except the center patch is a bit larger and the image is slightly more naive...... The figure is anyway. The embroidery says Nebraska , Albion or something like that, I forget. Maybe rootytoottoot has more pictures from the auction.

I collect FFA jackets. So this was a must have. It's the first I've seen with this early design (30s to mid 40s. Switched up to the common design in 43 if I remember correctly)

I've seen another one on eBay from the 30s that looked like it was buried for 100 years. I don't think anyone went for it. The auction was a buy t now at over 3000 bucks. Pretty ridiculous.

I saw another one several months ago that I regret not going for. It was the same as this except it was a regular cotton with a wool felt looking texture instead of the corduroy we're used to seeing. Maybe this was a variation on the early designs before they committed to one official uniform design. It's probably pretty special. Auction ended at 165 bucks or so. Still kicking my self on the ass for passing it up.

^ edit: it's the first I've seen.... In that good of a condition. It is almost perfect. These aren't too rare. I see one to two pop up online per year.
