    692841AD-CD02-422B-A9BC-9ABEC7C31122.jpeg I am trying to replicate a Car Club jacket for my dad. This is the original. Let’s just say “it shrunk” after almost 60 years.

    The closest I have found is painter jackets, but the ones I have found all have corduroy collars and big goofy pockets on the front.

    I have a guy trying to replicate the embroidery. It will be a little more modern version, but he will dig it. Make a good surprise Christmas gift.

    Any sports/school jersey shop that does silkscreening etc. can draw that image and they’ll be able to embroider the image perfectly after a little computer wizardry.;)

    That part I have covered. The jacket is the part slowing me down. It's a cool old jacket.

    Probably a tailor or seamstress near by could duplicate it?
