    Found this the other day, really interesting stuff. The guy basically dissects tons of suits and shows step by step all of the hand work and such that went into making it

    I think I've figured out why that one threw me off... I had to dig up my catalog collection to figure this one out.

    I believe that this is the Lightweight Synchilla Snap-T fleece. At some point between the mid 90s and 2000s (I don't have all of the catalogs...), they added the pocket onto the lightweight model as well. The original Snap-T (called the T-Neck from introduction until 1988) did not have a pocket. The t-neck is probably my all-time favorite fleece, and I have a 1988 model in Electric Blue/Red (conveniently, this is shown in my Spring '88 catalog!).

    What about the red snap-t in your picture? Brodeetz?
