Follow this eBay link if you are interested - more info on the description.

This is the real deal in amazing condition with patches and gold stitching.  The Belt Buckle appears never to have been used and is signed on the underside

Thanks

Me too, doubt they made um bigger than a large. They did not grow us tall and wide back then. Was the sleeve lettering white or gold on the original jacket? Not sure about the pocket either? It may not fit but I am bidding, probably should hit the buy it now.

Stunts Unlimited is the pocket patch and is a real company including Hal Needham and others back in the 70's. Here is the link:

http://www.stuntsunlimited.com/

Could be a jacket given to the stuntmen during the day, it is intriguing but I agree, something just doesn't seem right. I think it is the pocket and patch throwing me off. Why the pocket? Was it available back then with or without the pocket? Burt's jacket was a non pocket. I have seen personally in the Burt Reynolds and Friends Museum the red jacket. The arm sleeve lettering is gold, has black elastic wrist cuffs and looks like the mentioned jacket on ebay (but without the pocket) But in some of Burt's pictures the jacket worn has white font. Hitmans jacket has white font but red elastic at the cuffs.

How many versions did they make, who was the manufacturer on the inside label and is it possible the ebay jacket is a knock off?
