    I picked up this great denim peacoat from a store here in Toronto. It was originally priced at $195 then marked down to $89 plus an additional 10% off sale so I got it for $83 with taxes. The fit is great and it has all the same details as my vintage 10 button wool peacoat.

    Looks great. What's the brand?

    I bought a new magazine about workwear reproductions (and some other stuff) today. Found it at a Virgin (the brand) bookstore at the train station.

    The jacket is by a company called Creep. Im actually pretty impressed with the amount of detail in this jacket. I have seen the Denim and Supply version in person and thought it looked really cheap and fit like crap. This one is pretty much identical to my vintage 40s wool peacoat only in denim. It even comes with a removable chin strap.

    Fortunately for me I got the last one the store had in stock. Im not sure if they even make them anymore. It was from their 2011 collection.

    I also picked up this vintage russian naval shirt from a local army surplus store today for $15.

    My dad used to call those "Spetznaz shirts".

    That's a very common misconception among Cold War-era military folks (don't know if that's where your dad got it). The dark blue stripes are Russian navy. Spetsnaz and paratroopers wore light blue stripes.

    Yup, USAF 1968-74. Too bad he's not still around, he'd be interested to know that.

    Thrift Shop Pick-up. Made by Club Monaco, which is owned by Ralph Lauren. Another brand that's jumped on the workwear trend pretty heavy the past couple of years.
    Cigarette pocket, chin strap, gussets.

    An affordable option for British members:

    Not strictly a repro, but the fit is perfect and it does have some nicely observed details.
