Got this off of the Sox Mailbag on whitesox.com. Thought everyone would be interested. I didn't see it posted anywhere, but if it was already than my apologies.


Scott, can you tell me if the World Series jackets that White Sox executives had on during the celebration in Chicago will be available to the general public, or are they special one-of-a-kind jackets? These were the black jackets with the tan leather sleeves. If they're not going to be available, can you tell me who made them? Thanks and hope to hear from you soon.

Mike, these jackets will be available at the MLB.com Shop beginning this week. It will appear on this page (http://shop.mlb.com/family/index.jsp?categoryId=1503502&cp=1452347.1452703) when it does become available to the public. These jackets apparently struck a chord with many fans, judging by the six or seven e-mails I received asking about their purchase.

I like the wool w/leather sleaves look but why tan? Bleh...

I want the all black one with WS champions on the back. :cool:

Back in 90/91 when the new uni's came out there was a Sox leather jacket that was totally to die for. I remember Hawk wearing it during the final night game at Old Comiskey. I wanted one SO bad, but was 16 at the time and the jacket was $250. That tan sleeved thing they wore during the WS wasn't very attractive, if you ask me.

I didn't care much for the jacket either, reminds me too much of a High School letterman jacket. I have heard people like it though. Funny side note, I saw this kid on the red line last week wearing almost the exact same jacket. I thought he might "be somebody" but realized I was on the red line in the middle of the afternoon going south past Jackson. I looked closer at the jacket and the Sox logo was really small, not like the one Ozzie wore in game 1 of the ALCS. It must have been some counterfit production. Also the jacket looked pretty warn.

I bet they try and sell these jackets for +$300.

They are only $249.99 on MLB.com.

Love that 1959 wool jacket. I mean wow, but that price...:(:

I too want to see a standard satin jacket with the WS Champs logon on it. I am waiting, but haven't seen one yet, just those cheesy leather ones which cost an arm and a leg...

"They made me pimp these jackets about 7 times an inning during the playoffs and World Series. When we won it all they took off the other logo and but on the World Series logo which I hope in all candor stays on for more than a few days."

Like the jacket - but it doesn't even have a Sox logo on it. I could have sworn that the ones at the parade did. I guess I could be mistaken.

You are right, there are different versions of this jacket. The one I had seen is with a white sox logo in the front, an American league sign on the sleeve, and nothing on the back. This is the one I saw Ozzie wear game 1 of ALCS, and a few Sox players/staff wear at the parade.

I had that jacket. Black on black leather sleeves. Sox logo on front
big script Chicago with the white Sock in the diamond logo on the back.

I remember wearing it on a visit down to uofI and got constant great comments on that coat.

If 300,000 people each bought one of these coats at probably a $200.00 profit per coat, we'd have plenty of money to resigned PK.

That's sweet. Man, I was thinking of getting a new Mac for Christmas. Might have to re-think that one.

Has anyone bought this yet? If so, how is the sizing? The reason I ask is that I bought the Majestic Black/Tan jacket from 2000 prior to the Seattle division series and the sizes ran large. It's very similar, however it has gray and white piping at the shoulder wells and a larger SOX logo on the chest. It's pretty beat up and I'm considering an upgrade, however if I order on-line, I want to get the right size. Usually I wear an XL, however the jacket above is a Large.

Plus, MLB.Com only has mediums currently. They should be getting more.

Haven't bought one yet because I too am unsure of the size, but came across this...

Men's Sizing (Majestic Athletic) Jersey/Shirt/Jacket Size Chest (inches) Medium 38 - 40 Large 42 - 44 X Large 46 - 48 XX Large 50 - 52

Thanks. I also bought the majestic fleece pullover in an XL and it was huge so I exchanged it for a large. I think all Majestic jackets run large.
