Best I can tell from my limited tag research. Probably the last batch or two before they started adding handwarmer pockets and still were union made and all that. I bought 2 of these. The other is a little longer. This one has better denim. No stains, rips, or fraying. Pretty much what you'd buy as new if you bought a manufacturer faded jacket. But that extra inch makes a big difference for me on getting a jacket into the rotation. So if you shorter or can just rock the short jacket look, your win my loss. Color wise id say a mid blue with contrast fading on some of the seams. First pic probably the closest on my monitor. $75 ppff including conus shipping.
