This 1950 pennant winning Oaks jacket fits beautifully. Fashions change on regular basis, but some styles never grow old. This jacket is a hit!
The Oaks seemed to radically overhaul their uniforms every couple of years. This particular design (1950) is one of their simplest and most elegant. The blue satin si deep and rich, and the understated script "Oaks" and white trim set it off perfectly. Only one issue keeps me from giving the full five stars: we tall fellows (I’m 6’5”) "come up short" with these beautiful authentic jackets. I’d be happy to pay an additional fee for a couple of extra inches in the body and an additional inch in the sleeve.
