  3. Vintage Brown's Beach vests and jackets --the older, the better-- are once again fetching high prices on the Japanese market.

    Man, I've been looking for one for a bit now....would like an early one, but probably out of my price range.
     
  5. Less than two years ago, you could have gotten a Brown's Beach vest on eBay for about $50. Three years ago, that same vest would have fetched over one hundred bucks. Now, it could go for over two hundred. Go figure.

    I thought over 4, hitting this year's average of 6. I didn't expect what's happening. Congrats, Dinerman.

    I didn't even know about Brown Beach Jackets. You earn it, Dinerman. Years of researching and finding vintage workwear ....and a great Ebay auction with lots of pictures and infos. If only Ebay would be always like this.
     

  9. "Brown's Beach" vests and jackets have been collectible (especially in the Japanese market) for the past two decades, but they've gone up and down in price. Clearly, they're on an upswing again. Dinerman is right: his is a rare color, and in excellent condition. Those factors help!

    deadstock Woolworth's Tower pack, containing two of three
    Note that the package promises a neat hem, but not a neat cut.

    Thanks. Aside from the deadstock pair, which I'll try to sell, I use the rest of them.

    Interesting cap...there's a similarly shaped Carhartt in brown cotton duck on eBay right now.

    It looks like it will go pretty high as well.

    I thought this was interesting.
