The eBay Find | WWII U.S. Navy Deck Jacket

Having been accused of altering the eBay landscape for the worse, I have taken a strict “after the close” stance on posting these sorts of things. The below gem of a jacket was sent in by an ACL reader (thanks to Jeremy for the tip) with a keen eye for U.S. Navy vintage. The fun started off at $600 and came to a close at a solid $1,109.89. Early in the auction I fired off an email with the link to the master of such material matters, Mister Freedom, who quickly responded with “I love how the late owner tried to mask up the ‘Tom Cat’ in the back! I’m thinking end price around $1200.00?…mmm?…We’ll see.” It looks like school is out.

    Design perfection: durable cloth, metal latchets, streamlined pockets, cool neutral color and destroyed miliary text. Screams America!

    Whatever the auction prices ends at, double it and thats how much it will cost in the next RL season.

    very nice. From time to time I have come across a few jackets from the Navy, Army and Airforce and they all seem to hover around that price, albeit the Airforce jackets seem to go for more .
