Sam needed a jacket he didn’t care about to be arrested in. So we get this dark blue coat with vertical zippered breast pockets.
Brand Information: American Eagle.
NOTE: Both boys wore versions of this jacket in Tall Tales (2x15) as part of costumes.
In Folsom Prison Blues (2x19), Sam is arrested at the beginning of this episode wearing this jacket. They allow him to keep it until he arrives at the prison, and then he has to switch to prison garb.
FATE: Presumably confiscated by the prison authorities in Folsom Prison Blues (2x19).
