Suggested reading: An explanation of the 1983 series of outfits that the windbreaker outfit belongs to. Jump to: 1983 Series – The 1st CPK Clothes
Original Name: Blue Jean Baby
The outfit consists of a striped white and [insert colour here] cotton shirt, jeans, and a nylon windbreaker jacket that has a white zipper and a green curved CPK logo on the right side. It comes with sneakers and socks.
This outfit was sold from 1983 until 1985, most likely longer. It was sold both on kids and packaged, starting in 1984.
My goal is to find every version of every outfit that was produced. Below is a record of each version of this outfit that I have, up to the date indicated. To understand clothing codes, factories and variations, please refer to the suggested readings below.

If you have an outfit that is not recorded here or does not match my information, (e.g. you have a 6A OK that is green, not blue) I would appreciate hearing from you. Information is best sent in the form of pictures. For details on the pictures required, jump to Taking Clothing Tag Pics.
> This outfit does not appear to have been made by the primary factories CC or SS.
This outfit is extremely difficult to confirm as the tag is ONLY located in the shirt. It is too easy to put a shirt, jacket, and jeans together and claim to have a set.
Please provide pictures of shirts with tag codes I do not have, but only include the entire outfit if you KNOW the other pieces came with it. Mint-in-box (MIB) kids are extremely important if you have one. Refer to the Other Information section for details.

> There were many variations made by foreign factories. For information on identifying a Jesmar windbreaker outfit, refer to the links in the previous bullet.
> Mimic outfits: The Play Along 25th Anniversary version of this outfit was done only in purple and worn only by girls. Outfit #100 KT is a later mimic outfit with no logo on the jacket. Instead, the logo is on the shirt. I have only one version of outfit #100 recorded.

> I’m not sure, in some situations about shirt and jacket combinations. Several outfits look like they could include the same shirt. Did they change the tags inside the shirt to reflect a different outfit, or did they just put different coloured jackets on the same coded shirt? UPDATED POST – PTP: Bountiful Blue (Windbreakers)
