    Help with dating and identifying a jacket

    Hi, anyone can help in dating and identifying this jacket? No label inside (maybe lost) only the care label remains that indicates as manufacturer Tripp NYC, a brand unknown to me and surely not high quality, brass scovill zippers and buttons. Maybe from the 70s? Do you think it's horsehide or...

    40s-50s Woolrich Mackinaw button

    I just bought a vintage Woolrich Mackinaw in very good conditions for its age, from the label it seems to be from late 40s to early 50s. No worn-out wool even on friction prone parts. There is some small repair to do but nothing important. The worst thing is a missing button (bakelite?) on one...

    cracks on old horsehide jacket

    A jacket I could be interested in has these cracks on the hide, even though the leather is thick and still pliable in these areas, are these kind of superficial cracks a real bad thing in any case? Is there anything that can be done to eventually reduce them? Thanks

    Want to Buy: original vintage 50s Buco J21-22 size 42

    I am looking for a vintage (not repro) horsehide Buco J-21 or J-22 (2nd label with plaid lining) in very good/excellent original conditions, size 42 (I usually am a 40R but it seems that these jackets run a little small). Early J-24 horsehide could be also an option. A deal within Europe would...

    Missing a "cat-eye" button in a vintage Lee Storm Rider jacket

    I always liked the Lee Storm Rider and instead of buying a repro I decided to look for a not too expensive vintage one. Today I was able to buy one from a japan yahoo auction with the help of juno@bidservice (pics below), so it will take some time to arrive here. It was advertised as from the...

    Anyone used car upholstery cleaner on jacket lining?

    I need to clean the quilted lining of a vintage leather jacket, there are some old stains (that I doubt will completely disappear) and some smell mainly in the upper back and pit areas. I don't want to bring it to a laundry fearing damages to the leather. I already tried some water/vodka but it...

    Help: breakage in vintage Conmar zip

    Today when I was trying to zip up my 50s Grais jacket the main zipper began to break at the beginning, the solid part at the extremity is detaching from the fabric (or better the fabric is fraying). I know it's nearly impossible but anyone knows a way to fix it? A glue? Classic superglue...

    Two weeks ago I bought a nice 50s Grais horsehide (pony) wit a great patina, but it had the lining in bad shape, sleeves lining destroyed and body lining rather dirty, with a previous patch at the bottom and a big tear/hole near the collar, the pockets lining were in bad shape too: I...

    Just bought a 1963 Irvin Foster G-1 jacket

    I just bought this G-1 jacket on ebay. It's an Irvin B. Foster, B series from 1963 so it should be real goat and mouton collar, from the pics it seems in good conditions, here it is (pics are from the auction as it is not in my hands yet):

    Alpha N3-B parka VF59 (slim fit) ?

    As my vintage (1969 issued) N3-B has a rather bulky fit, I was thinking to get a slimmer one for everyday use. It seems that modern Alpha are good quality for the price but I need some advice here. In the Alpha US website there is a slim fit version...

    Is this G-1 genuine, repro or civilian?

    Help with this Cockpit G1 sizing

    I found a Cockpit G1 M422-A for sale (new but surely a few years old), a few pic below. It is sold for a very tempting low price (even though I don't like much the patch on the left chest), but the only remaining size is a 38. At 5.11" and 164lbs I am usually a 40R and I never tried a Cockpit...

    1938 Gruen Curvex Majesty watch

    Here is my Gruen Curvex Majesty (330-292), with its 52mm length it is the biggest and most sought-after of all Gruen Curvex, it is in really great conditions for an 80+ years old watch, the dial is still very good and original and a nice inscription on the back confirms it's from 1938

    Washing a vintage N-3B parka?

    I would like to know if any of you has ever washed a vintage vietnam era N-3B parka. Even though the internal label says "dry clean only" I don't see why, especially the 100% wool/cotton ones with authentic fur, cannot be gently washed with water and soap, even in the washer. It would take...
