Approximately 10 years ago, JOE McCOY gave all of its authorized dealers this exclusive pint-sized jacket and denim. Crafted of the same materials as its commercially available offerings, the set was destined to be used as a proud badge of honor. Although an official price was set upon delivery, we simply couldn’t stand to part with the cute ensemble which featured some great details that you’d find on adult versions. The piece has been sitting in our Take 5 office for quite some time so I had to do some serious dusting off to present this real rarity.
