First off being a printing company we must find out the Pantone color chosen. The jacket is a Pantone 342 or brilliant rye green but better known as Masters Green. The hex number is 006b54. However, it has been disputed that Masters Green is technically different from Pantone 342.
History of the jacket
The tradition of giving a green jacket by the Masters officials started in 1937 when Augusta National purchased jackets in bulk from a NYC company. The wool jacket was only given to Augusta National members to signify the members from the non-member guests. The wait staff knew who to give the ticket to by the jacket. Then in 1949 the jacket was given to Sam Snead after he won which started the started the tradition. The official jacket never leaves the premises but the winner is given a custom made version to keep. The owner's name is stitched on the label. The winner only get's one jacket unless they drastically change in size.
In the early years the jacket's color ranged from a hunter green to laurel green to forest green due to various manufacturers. The color has been standardized to Masters Green for the past 40 years. In 1990, Hamilton Tailoring Co. purchased a 500 yard roll.
Gary Player has his jacket on display at the World Golf Hall of Fame in St. Augustine, Fl.
