ESSENTIAL Vintage 1946 Ivy League University of Pennsylvania "Football Staff" Letter Jacket by Pearson XL. Made in USA.

DESCRIPTION: This vintage letter jacket was owned by Robert Graham who played Ivy League collegiate football for the University of Pennsylvania from 1946-1948. It is chain-stitched "GRAHAM 7-46 (July 1946) 60 (his number)" in the right hip pocket.

It features a button-front closure, straight-zip back flap / convertible hood with TALON zipper, a 100% wool body with inset leather sleeves, and elasticized cuffs and bottom hem. All of the buttons appear to be made of bakelite, the leather sleeves are soft and supple - not dry or cracked, and all elastic is in good working condition - not dry or brittle. It is fully lined in a smooth knitted fabric (perhaps bemberg?) with no snags or pulls.

* If you've been looking for the perfect vintage Ivy League letter jacket, you just found it. Period. *

CONDITION: a CONSERVATIVE 9 out of 10. There are a few faint spots and some mild surface marks on the light colored leather sleeves.

* Any "discoloration" that you see on the sleeves is natural color transfer from the navy blue body of the jacket to the inner side of the sleeves consistent with normal wear.

SIZING / MEASUREMENTS: Its size is not marked, but it measures LIKE a size XL.

Therefore, PLEASE PAY CAREFUL ATTENTION TO THE SPECIFIC MEASUREMENTS THAT I HAVE LISTED BELOW AND COMPARE THEM TO A JACKET THAT FITS YOU WELL TO ENSURE A CORRECT FIT.

Shoulders (shoulder seam to shoulder seam across back): 20 inches.
Chest (armpit to armpit across front x 2): 52 inches.
