The red jacket comes with snap up closures and two front hand pockets. It has a knit collar, waistband, and cuffs. There is a small circus logo on the front chest and a graphic on the back that reads, "Presented by Morris Chalfen and Tom Collins Moscow Circus".
This jacket fits like a modern unisex adult Small.
This item is from the estate of Craig MacGregor, the bassist for the band Foghat in the 1970s, 80s, and again in the 2000’s. The item was owned by Craig, a collector of t-shirts, and stored for some time in a basement before it came into our possession. As a result there may be some lingering basement odor. All items are authentic pieces of rock and roll history and in many cases are one-of-a-kind. Further authentication and chain-of-custody can be provided upon request.
