Eastman ELMC Reproduce the USAAF Baseball Jersey

Eastman Leather roll out fresh goods under their ELMC (Eastman Leather Motorcycle Club) label, continuing to explore bike culture and beyond. Here the label offers something covering sports, military and casual bases, a painstakingly reproduced USAAF baseball jersey that took 12 months to research and development. These guys don’t mess around. A beautiful piece of uniform, USAAF combat squadrons often formed their own baseball teams with kit produced as mil spec. government issue. Woven on an original World War two circular knitting machine using tubular construction the guys explain “a combination of two dyeing methods – sakizme (pre dyed before weaving) and atozome (woven then dyed) are used to gain the exact appearance of the original garment.” Featuring a replica mil spec issue label, this cut of jersey would have been worn underneath the classic button-front baseball overshirt. Nice. Grab one over here.
