Cleveland Browns 1950 Authentic Jacket
History: What would be a great name for a new football team? Despite his objections in 1946, Co-founder and first team head coach Paul Brown had his last name chosen. His namesake squad turned out to be Championship worthy for the Cleveland Browns inaugural season and then some as they won 5 straight AAFC Championships out of the gate, and 3 NFL titles under his helm. We'd be remiss to not mention the biggest, baddest Brown of all - Jim Brown. Arguably the best player in NFL history, Brown suited up for 9 years, netting 9 pro bowls, an NFL title, and the most rushing yards in NFL history upon his retirement. The Cleveland Browns are currently members of the AFC Northern Division and play their home games in First Energy Stadium, Cleveland, Ohio.

A true beauty, fits perfectly. A tiny complaint though is some loose threadends at the buttonhole seams which needed to cleared out (nail scissors to the rescue!). Besides that, perfect (as stated above).
This jacket is gorgeous and well worth the price tag. Beautifully crafted and amazingly Ebbets has mastered the art of creating new products that are free of all of the “break in” fear- I feel as if this jacket really has been around since the 50s and so I’m less hesitant and mindfully of it when I wear it... it’ll get wear and tear and that’s okay! It’ll only add to the story.
