    Thanks for the great info. I never knew that Concord was a commercial venture of Alpha.
    Can anyone comment on the "three vertical bars" on the labels to distinguish the commercial makes or did I misread something?

    Dave, I'm pretty sure this is what they're referring to:

    Yep the military version has one single horizontal line separating the care info at the bottom.

    Hmmm. I guess that particular label is missing from my jacket.

    As explained by Alpha in the link I provided earlier in the thread, Concord was a company formed to handle early commercial sales. I don't think they use the name anymore as commercial jackets nowadays bear the Alpha label with the parallel bars.

    Pretty sure Concord where one of the companies that where RAAF issue in the 1970's and 80's with the addition of plastic name tag holders, rank was worn on the epaulettes and they could be worn with a sqn patch.
