    Just picked up a nice jacket from a local vendor here in Toronto. Thought it might make a nice addition to the Ferrari memorabilia.

    Not sure how great of a deal it is but it was $250CDN. If anyone is interested I can ask if there are any others available.

    That jacket is available on Ebay out of Thailand. I bought one for myself recently. It's available for a little less than the $250 CDN.

    Interesting.. Is there any way to tell if it is in fact the same one? The quality of the materials and the fit and finish is great on the one that I have.

    Thanks for the info.

    i bought one just like it on ebay from an overseas company. it is "okay" but it just doesn't have a real nice quality "feel" to it. you get what you pay for i guess :)

    This jackets are like wearing a toupe.... They are the "kit cars" of clothing.

    They are poser clothes....

    Oh, did I go off again?

    Sorry, but they look nothing like actual team wear and they just look silly.

    Like Adam Sandler says in "Happy Gilmore" if I was wearing that jacket "I'd kick my own ass!" It's just too gawdy for public consumption. Maybe for the racetrack............ at night?

    Just my $.02.

    Well, I just opened my presents from JMJ Automobilia.

    Let's see....... A REAL crew shirt, long sleeve XL. Fila is almost as nice as the Tommy Hilfiger stuff. VERY NICE.

    An F1 Lambo piston with Certificate of Authenticity. SSSSSHHHH it's for my friend JRV.

    And, Marie threw in a couple of 5" x 7" photos, unsigned, of Senna!

    I think a REAL crew jacket with matching zip out logo inner vest is about
    $1500.US. She has one signed by Schumi, too. I like the special pocket for your cell phone!

    GET THE REAL STUFF!!!! Life is too short not to!

    I didn't go looking for the jacket. I just happened to be around when the guy came by and I saw it. It was an impulse buy. :)

    I would never wear it on the street or in public. I am not that type. It is just put into an area of my home with other Ferrari stuff.

    Believe me, if I really wanted one, I would go and order the real thing.

    The one I bought on Ebay has the same hang tag as the one pictured. The jacket feels kind of "cheesy" and a light weight nylon. I think I got it for $29 plus shipping and it just hangs up in a closet with other F-stuff and probably will never be worn in public. The embroidery is impressive and the price was right for the purpose.
