    Does any manufacturer make anything like this today?

    I'm not after the wool melton car clicker coat fabric but rather the cotton twill or poly/cotton twill versions like these old McGregor Ramjet car coats. Specifically with knit cuffs and knit collar.

    I had one decades ago and would like a new one but I don't really want a second hand one.

    I know I've seen Rumble59 do this style in a couple of versions but its not on their site anymore, and the only ones I can see for sale are wool mix.

    Derby Jackets of San Francisco still makes a similar jacket w/ knits like you want. They're not made in S.F. anymore but other than that (and the price) they haven't changed much. Clint Eastwood wears one in some scenes in the first Dirty Harry movie. Cheers!

    Those remind me of the Skyliner jacket by Eddie Bauer. But that's a down jacket, so probably not what you're after.

    Thanks Sefton. I think they are bomber jackets (with knits at the waist) but will check out.They look nice.

    No down, Shadow. No use to me here. But thanks for the thought.
