I do not recall a style 728N, I would need photos of the jacket, main label and white pocket ticket. Gail

I don't have a photo but the main label is exactly like the 740n says 728n.it has quilted lining but no inside pockets.

I really need more information, I have looked through our old labels and cannot find this 728N label in my collection. I also cannot  find this style number in any of our catalogs or in any of our style masters. Our styles do differ internationally and all styles are not offered in all countries or are made in our USA factory. If the style was made in the US it will have a label of origin and a pocket ticket with the style number.  Unless I have more information I will be unable to help you on this jacket. Gail

Would this be same model of the jacket in question? The description certainly sounds like it.

I was able to get onto the Ebay UK  website but was unable to find this jacket. Since it is on a UK website this jacket is probably a peacoat our distributors had produced to be offered in Europe. As I explained prior styles do differ international. Our distributors will have jackets made based on our approval of the jacket to be offered in their countries that they feel will sell well. I have a strong feeling this is a jacket that was offered in Europe and not made or offered in the US. Gail

Looking at the label it does appear to be a Woven Damask label that  we have made for our peacoats. The label looks to be a Tyvek label possibly made by us printing the label for a customers production lot of jackets. The dry clean only label at the neck does looks old and not a label we use currently. The old tyvek label and care label would be something possibly found in a old vintage jacket, but the USA Flag label with size was not used in the older vintage styles. With the Made in USA label it was made in the USA, but I cannot locate the style number 728N on anything in our system or in my files. I will try to research the style some more, but so far I have found nothing. Gail

If you have the jacket check the pocket for a white ticket with numbers, one will be the style number. Gail

the little ticket in the packet says its a Lot #3370 007 728 44

Finally the mystery is solved, it was a jacket we made in 1985 and the style was 728. The difference was it was a 28 oz.  Melton wool and not the standard 32 oz. Melton wool we use in our 740. We offered the 28 oz. for a better price point for customers and we made special labels for these jackets. We only made the jackets for that one year. Gail
