Default colonial warriors jacket

I went garage sale-ing last weekend. I found a Colonial Warriors jacket, the one that was advertised in Starlog magazine. I never ever expected to see one!
It was hanging in the family's cover tent with some other clothing. My eyes widened because I wasn't sure of what I was seeing was real. I knew for sure what the jacket was once I saw the mandala/patch on the upper right arm.
The jacket is in mint condition and doesn't even smell musty. The seller said it had belonged to his younger brother. The family couldn't figure out why I wanted the jacket. They kept trying to sell me used personally recorded VHS tapes and I wasn't interested in them at all! I bought the jacket for $20, and I have no idea if that is a good price because I've never seen one for sale before.
It is a boys' size 14 (too small for an adult) and was made by a company called Unlimited. There are actually washing instructions on it as well. The jacket is made of a soft corduroy. It still has the pins at the collar. I always thought the closures would snap shut, but they are actually slotted and the one piece slides into the other.
I'm not sure what color it is supposed to be. It is not the Crayola crayon/topsoil brown of the series' jackets. Rather it is a deep olive that sometimes looks medium brownish but in other lighting has a green cast to it.

Totally jealous..

I so badly wanted one of the at the time, but we couldn't afford such luxuries.
I barely got to get every release of Starlog mag and often had to choose between that and a 2000AD special :-)

Given its condition I would say $20 was an excellent price

Great find

Yes, for whatever reason the "Starlog" Colonial Warriors jacket was a lighter brown. I think I have the ad in one of my old back-issues; will have to check. You got a fantastic price. They rarely come up on eBay.....
