Sorry this sight of this jacket and my expected jacket really opened my mind. My thoughts just spilled out here. I have to capture them when I can, write them down. I will copy this for the Vertical zip and Sears MC History threads. One should Not Hesitate around Jackets such as these around people Such as Us. Now you are one of Us whatever you call us. I have to catch my breath. Interlude- Love seeing that Appalachian T&T label. They were one of Sears most consistent suppliers when making a variety of Jackets under the Sears Hercules, Fieldmaster, Oakbrook label. Probably Fraternity Prep too, but I have not examined/owned one. At this point I'm assuming they made all the Vertical zip jackets; labeled as Hercules, Fieldmaster. I believe there is a variety pictured in the Vertical Zip Thread. I have a fuzzy lined Horsehide, Fieldmaster coming soon. I have one I call 51 Scarsdale, purchased there then. I'm convinced my 51 is an Appalachian T&T by the construction of the shoulders, the leather. I don't know what to call the construction, but it is different and noticeable. I see the Fuzzy lined as late 50s even early 60s. I've owned several Fuzzy lined AT&t/Oakbrook/Fieldmaster jackets which are pictured in the Sears catalog. I will reference the pages. I continue to guess on what other jackets they made for Sears in the Motorcycle or Sports jackets. I have theories, but lack evidence. I just had an Idea! I better stop here. I've got to sort out this New Idea.
