    Hello, this is my first post in the jacket forum. I'm a n00b about jackets, but I know what I like. I came across this photo recently and just loved the jacket this railroad worker is wearing. Wanted to know if there is anyone making this exact style.

    When I saw this it reminded me of what Marlon Brando was wearing in On the Waterfront. The Buffalo checked work jacket, http://www.aeroleatherclothing.com/product-detail.php?id=3208 except this one has no knits at the waist or sleeves. Which works for me as I'm a bit portly and waisted jackets look bad on me. I also like the slash pockets on this much better than the flaps.

    I think this jacket is so cool. I like it so much I'm sure I'd pay more than I should for it ;-)

    cheers!

    I really like the Runabout one, but I love the Mustard Plaid one at LabourUnion:

    I picked up one just like this on Ebay. Green/black buffalo plaid. Funny thing I bought it out of Philly, it is a vintage Pioneer Brand made in Canada in pristine condition....The jacket is more well travelled than I am! What size are you?

    Fashion always comes back around is no joke. Yet, I'm still surprised by this comeback of buffalo plaid. I love it. Always have. I don't know what it is about the pattern that I thought it would be immune to this adage. Love to see all these photos. Thanks for sharing, everyone.

    Great to see this Wool jackets! I owned this one from Labor Union. I bought it and sold it here. It was marked as a XL, but had a chest of 21 inches! I owned a similar Real McCoys which did not fit. The Labor Union was nice, but not the quality of the McCoy. Still it was nice.

    I have not been to their website and was floored to see the jackets posted above.

    I had no idea about the Runabout! That posted jacket is sold out in my size, Large. I will keep my eye on these websites. Thanks to folks who posted those sites.

    I've got one I will do a thread on today.
