    I spent the day in the pike position, far too cold for anything else, and will be until midweek.

    19 degrees this morning with light snow. I think I will wear my vintage Woolrich 28 oz. Mackinaw. Warm jacket and very comfortable to wear. Doesn't get stiff in the cold. Would wear a peacoat, but I'm going to the cigar store and don't want to get cigar smoke on one of my peacoats. Yes, they have a filtration system there, but it is still a bit smoky.

    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] Another Swedish goat jacket. This one is very heavy & thick, like a tank. Also noticed they do the undersleeve seam with top stitching but left the outer sleeve just regular blind seam not sure why.

    Really, really cool pics! I like seeing jackets “out in the wild”, worn in different environments while doing different things.

    I recently conditioned this Taubers Horsehide shirt. I do like to wear them around, sort of like giving them some excercise!

    Seeing that real nice russet goatskin jacket that @regius posted, I figured I’d post a close-up shot of the russet goat of my Willis & Geiger G-1 (on a recent business trip flying over Singapore Harbor).

    Really nice! What would you say their quality of construction and leather compare with US Authentic and Lost Worlds?

    Original Willis & Geiger WWII M-422 jackets are of course very collectible and very well made. They did after all design the M-422 jacket for the Navy and received several wartime contracts. The company went thru ups and downs over the years before going out of business in the 1990’s. If you can find a 1980’s vintage W&G G-1 then they’re definitely worth the effort to find one in the right size. Mine is made of midweight russet goat with excellent construction and craftsmanship. However quality control was all over the place as different parent companies owned W&G before their demise. Some jackets are superb with exceptional detailing and top -quality materials while others are cheap, mass produced junk. It’s hit and miss.
    I’d rank vintage W&G in the Gibson Barnes, Cockpit and US Authentic category.
