Essendon bases heritage jacket on DJR's favourite

No more “I’m the guy with the red sleeves” at half time in VFL games.

Is @theDJR the model with the 2 thumbs?

Surely no one can afford what it’s going to cost?

I can afford what it’s going to cost*. And don’t call me Shirley.

*I can’t. Just had to throw in the Airplane line.

Just the super keen fans that show up to VFL games.

Shut up, and take my boomerang.

When I was at uni I worked in an AFL Merchandise shop. Iirc those jackets were ~$250. This was like 10-12 years ago though so may have changed.

VFL & VFLW games - super keen fans

They were ~$300 in the early Nineties.

Maybe early Noughties they were $500 (but the leather sleeves were black).

I still have the vivid jacket with leather sleeves. Purchased it in 1998 still good today. That one Sheeds is wearing was around $350 IIRC back in the day. Will be $500+ today you’d think. I clicked on the link in the email to see how much it costs and the link is broken :joy: typical EFC efficiency

That’s the vivid jacket I think? I have one. Black leather sleeves with a logo on the back with established date, home grounds etc. is that the one you’re thinking of? I bought mine in 1998 or thereabouts and it was around $300 but the one with red sleeves was more, my recollection was around $350 but it could’ve been more l suppose.

Buy this - sew your favourite badges on it.

Either they sold very quickly, or they’re not prepared to tell us what they’re going to cost yet.

I see we continue to ignore our existence before 1897, on a jacket specifically covering 1872-1896.

Not asking them to acknowledge all 39* premierships, including reserves etc, but we won senior premierships prior to 1897.

I don’t want to give this club any of my money, but at the same time… I really want that jacket…

Just a quick observation, our colours are Red and Black, not red and grey.
