This cool vintage jersey was made by the Russell Southern Co. all the way back in the 1950s. It features a chain stitched logo on the front for a place called Stuffy's and has also been personalized with the number 8 on the front and back. The logo matches one used by a restaurant in Longview, Washington called Stuffy's II. The establishment was reportedly opened by a married couple in 1988, which is long after this jersey was originally manufactured. There's a possibility that the Stuffy's logo wasn't added until several decades later, or this could be a rare remnant from the predecessor to Stuffy's II.

There's evidence of another restaurant by the name of Stuffy's having once been open in the city of Kelso, Washington, not far from Longview. There's a chance that the restaurant opened a second location in the 80s, which eventually became the only remaining trace of the Stuffy's name. Interestingly enough, Stuffy's II is themed to resemble a vintage eatery stocked with hearty diner food and 1950s memorabilia. They are known for their twelve egg omelets, and massive cinnamon rolls that weight up to seven pounds.

Fits like a modern unisex adult large. There some slight runs in the fabric along the front, see pics.
