In Reply to: NOW LET'S TACKLE JAKE'S JACKET! posted by Terry on July 01, 2000 at 11:04:47:
Jake wears an A-2 flight jacket with a blood chit on the back
Written on the back is notes offer a reward to anyone help return the pilot to the base. Also the coat is wrong in that is too dark to be one of the early Goatskin jacket spec. before the start of WWII.
: Actually, I'm not "tackling" it, because I loved his jacket and even bought me an imitation leather one at the time the show was on!
: But so far I haven't seen the show since it was on in '83, so can those of you who are seeing it tell me if Jake's jacket had anything on the BACK of it? I can tell by Patricia's cool photo collection that there's nothing on the front. I just can't remember, just seems like there was something on the back of the jacket, like a picture or map or something.
: Also, does anyone know where one can find this type of jacket over the internet for sale (preferably imitation leather, for us poor folk!)?
: Thanks folks. (And by the way, Captain, I was VERY IMPRESSED by your knowledge of the clothing of that time.)
