Milwaukee Brewers 1950 Authentic Jacket at Ebbets Field Flannels

We interrupt our study of the Milwaukee Chicks to bring you a development in Brewers merchandise.

This one is a real treat. Our friends at Ebbets Field Flannels have brought back one of its great past offerings, a reproduction 1950 Milwaukee Brewers dugout jacket. Originally produced by EFF in the 1990s, this jacket has been out of production for about twenty years.

I love this jacket. I've owned one of the originals for about fifteen years, and worn it proudly.

After all this time, it is getting a little threadbare, and so I just ordered a new one.
Milwaukee Brewers 1950 Authentic Jacket


History: The American Association Brewers started play in 1903, with the colorfully-named Jiggs Donahue leading the league in hitting. The club maintained a rabid fan base for half a century, until they were supplanted by the Boston Braves, who became the first MLB franchise in modern history to relocate. The Brewers name was revived in 1970 when the bankrupt Seattle Pilots moved to the Cream City.

One minor correction - that's not a Byron collar. It's a knit stand-up collar. But that's likely a typo, and doesn't diminish in any way from what Ebbets Field is offering us now.

Compare this with an original, worn by Brewers pitcher Virgil Jester:
