Gordon and Ferguson Field and Stream plaid western jacket

I saw one of these on Ira Gitlin at the Blob’s Park Buddy Holly tribute concert back in early February, and commented on what a cool jacket it was.  Somewhat weirdly, the next day I found a nearly identical jacket and snapped it up.  It’s funny how the world works.
