Made by Russell Southern Company, Alexander City, Alabama. Absolutely great shape for its’ age, and extremely rare. Heavy thread red cloth “SF” and “17” stitching. Thick heavy white cotton fabric, feels nice! Jacket weighs about 1.8 lbs. No repairs or added stitching, all original! Slight yellowing of fabric in spots due to age. The inner side is much more “white” than the outside (probably from less light exposure over the years). It’s clean but has a few spots which I have tried to show in the photos. I have worn it a couple times as-is, the yellow tint in spots is not very noticeable 2. Top of snap button #4(from top down) missing(photo#9), also snap button #1 needs repair, the top half has pulled from the fabric(slight rust stain where button was), but is still there(photo#10). The white paint on the buttons is over 70 Years old, and has chipped. Stitching at shoulder panel corner is a little separated, a hole about the size of a small pea needs repair(see photo #12). The right hand pocket corner stitching is a little loose as well(see photo#11). All issues have been photographed, please see photos. Here’s the story… My Uncle left me this jacket after he passed, it has a bit of a history… His jacket stayed at home, and he said he never wore it again. I received it a few years back, and was astonished at the great condition. It looked like it had barely been worn, despite a little staining and a few issues, it was in fantastic shape. When I saw the label, I realized it had come from an era never to be repeated. It readsRussell Southern Co. Quality Athletic Uniforms Alexander City Alabama. The stitching is quite different than modern-day, see the photo of the neck tag. Despite extensive research and searching on the web, I have not been able to pin down exactly where in San Francisco this jacket came from. If you recognize it, please feel free to write me and share the info!!! This is a rare find, close to one-of-a-kind. If you value vintage clothing or letter jackets that are original, hard-to-find and in good shape, look no further! I have noted all issues to the best of my ability, and always attempt to be as fair and honest as possible. Please see my feedback for lots of satisfied buyers!
