    I don't know much about post-50s fabrics, but this liner sure looks pretty recent. Do we know when polyester started to be used as a liner material?

    That lining!! No wonder you are confused. The logic would say it was a very proficient relining job, but why - you might ask - would someone with talent use such a woeful fabric and pattern?

    I didn't think much of these until I saw this one. It has more flair than 99% of the so-called 'casual' coats you see on the streets today. The thin gabardine ones are still not to my taste; they are one step away from a 70s safari suit.

    Can't believe it when I saw this sold! Even though it states a best offer was accepted, this is still crazy! I'm going off to NYC this summer, and I'll definitely be checking out vintage shops--but if I come across something like this, it'll surely go for a king's ransom. I was wondering why more people weren't posting these lovely jackets on the Lounge!
