This is a vintage Budweiser Light Dark Grey Delivery Coat, circa 1982-1983. This is for the serious collector or as one heck of a cool and unique gift for someone special.
Budweiser introduced it's lighter beer, Budweiser Light in 1982. It changed its name to Bud Light in 1984. This delivery coat, made by union brand Unitog, has not one but TWO, Budweiser Light patches. One on the left breast that measures 4 inches by 2 inches. There is another larger, yet identical, patch on the back of the coat that measures 7 inches by 3 inches. The left shoulder has a unique embroidered Anheuser Busch emblem patch sewn on.
The coat itself is a lighter cotton/denim material in a dark bluish-grey. The cuff of each sleeve has two flat black buttons that allow for the cuffs to adjust to your wrist size. The jacket closes with a sturdy and fully functional Talon brand metal zipper. There is a pocket at each hip and a small, thin pocket for pens under the Anheuser Busch emblem.
I have researched this jacket high and low and you will be hard pressed to find another one like it.
It is in pretty great vintage condition, there are a few flaws that should be noted. I want you as a collector to fully understand what you are investing in. The zip- in inner lining is missing; there is a slight wear mark on the bottom right-front about an inch and a half from the zipper (this is NOT a hole, it is an area where the material is slightly shiny from contact with something); the front patch on the bottom right corner has a little fray to the red stitching; there is a quarter inch of the bottom of the Anheuser Busch logo that has lifted). Aside from this list, the jacket itself is in normal vintage condition. No holes, stains, or tears.
I would be more than happy to provide additional photos or measurements, just message me. I will gladly have this dry cleaned and it will be fully insured when shipped.
