Black, yellow, and green Adidas brand long-sleeved track jacket with a graphic printed design on the back depicting two men in a beach setting. The word "KINGSTON" is embroidered in gold outlined in black along the shoulders of the back. On the front waist triangles of green outlined in yellow are sewn to meet in the middle, mimicking the Jamaican national flag. The Adidas logo is embroidered in yellow on the proper right front chest. The letter K in green is superimposed over the letter J in gold embroidery on the proper left front chest. The jacket closes up the center front with a silver metal zipper. The sleeves each have three (3) yellow stripes sewn down them from the neck to the wrist. The wrists of the sleeves and the hem of the jacket are made of stretchy ribbed knit material. There are two (2) exterior inset pockets, one at each front waist with the opening sewn along the side seam. The front and sleeves of the jacket are not lined, while the back is lined with black semi-transparent stretch fabric. There is a green hanger loop at the interior center back neck above an Adidas brand tag with a size tag below it. There are two additional tags at the interior proper left side seam near the hem with manufacturer's information and fiber content.
