    Not what you expected, huh? My Father in Law was in the Marines, and this was my husband's coat when he was little. My mother in law just gave it to me. Not really TOO antique, but cute just the same.

      Nice to see these more modern ones.

      I collect military tour/ souvenir jackets.

      They have their roots in the oriental embroidery pieces (wall hangers) that sailors purchased in the 19th century:

      In the 20th century, jackets replaced wall hangers in popularity:

      The tradition with embroidered tour jackets continues today.
