How many new jackets do you have coming (and how many potential ones)?

nothing yet, but jacket weather is coming soon and I'm currently looking for another wool piece.

Two pieces I’m eyeing up (as both are different from anything I own). Would love to get the lounge’s thoughts on these 2: IMG_3914.jpeg IMG_3915.jpeg IMG_3916.jpeg IMG_3917.jpeg

A Dickies Eisenhower with the quilt lining. Not very exciting I know, but something I can wear for anything.

Well every day's a school day.

I thought Dickies sized up larger and the measurements given on this Small looked ok, but good grief there's a massive taper on the body. From 22" P2P down to 18" waist.

And the sleeves are comically short.

Back it goes!

After wearing the brown deerskin vest the other day I mentioned about wanting to find something in black in the WJAYWT thread. Kind of cheated on this one because I had been watching it for weeks. I had received an offer from the seller a while back but ignored it. This afternoon I threw out an offer fully expecting a counter, but low and behold this W.B. Place is on its way:

The woolrich I bought on Ebay was supposed to arrive today, but was somehow delivered to a post office 2 hours away from me and now I don't know what's going to happen.

I just hope I get it by this weekend because it looks like It might actually get cool enough to need a jacket, of course that is assuming something worse doesn't happen and I do actually get the jacket.

Careful, could be a scam. No jacket, just some fake empty package. The scammer in those types of scams claims it was delivered, so there is little recourse. Call ebay, claim scam.

The seller has been on Ebay since 2014, has tons of clothing items listed and 99% positive feedback, so I don't think so but you never know.

I think USPS just kind of messed up a bit, but it seems to be back on track and I'll probably have it tomorrow.

I just got the jacket in and it feels as stout and substantial as I expected.

Anybody recognized this talon zipper ?

It's looking like the weather isn't going to cool down any time soon, but since this jacket is fully reversible and the orange side isn't wool I can wear it with a T shirt.
When I take pepper for a walk around 6:30-7:am on the days I'm not working it's cool enough to need a jacket, and I can wear this one for that even if it is still a bit too much for that.
At least I can try it out a little.

60’s 70’s 80’s based on the teardrop pulls.
80's it is I guess,I knew it couldn't be any earlier than that but didn't know how recent it could be.

My assumption was before Camo started taking over much more in the 90's, but that was just an assumption.
