ACF AUCTION BLOCK: CHAIN GANG CUT

Photobucket

After our brewside chat with Jeff Decker a few weeks ago, we couldn’t help notice this cut up on eBay: Chain Gang MC. Now, we don’t know anyone with a more impressive collection of historic outlaw motorcycle club jackets than Decker. And, along with that kind of collection comes extensive knowledge of a subject matter that’s been mostly not talked about, historically.

So, that’s why this cut is so interesting: no real info on the interwebs (refreshingly), but the vest looks like a period-correct piece, even though we question the “1950s VINTAGE” description on this auction. The chain stitching on the patch, the weird pleats-n-rivets construction, the selvedge line and the denim looks a little more late-Sixties/early-Seventies to us, but what the hell do we know?

Really neat piece, though. One more thing about the description, though: if you’re lucky enough to win this auction, we’d suggest NOT actually slipping it on. Find more right (here). And let us know what you know about this thing…

    That’s about 25 years newer than the auction states it is.

    Thanks for verifying, Kiya–based on the era, what do you think this piece is worth?
