I thought this show might be cool as its put on by Vintage Productions and Bob Chatt who has some of the best WWII vintage and old t-shirts at the Rose Bowl. Check out the show info HERE and Vintage Productions.
This jacket which resently sold on Ebay had dating numbers, or so it would appear, sewn into the lining at the bottom of the jacket. Having owned and seen a handful of Bates jackets I've never noticed any type of dating tag before today. It appears this jacket's "6 4" tags could possible stand for the year of manufacture, in this case 1964. Although you can ballpark date leathers based on tags and zippers it would be interesting to find out if all the Bates jackets from the early 60's on down had the same date identification tags.
