Wore this jacket for the first time. Today. Double D J-21 with Loki dancing around me.
You're all looking very elegant, today!
Haven't really taken off the Johnson Leathers since I opened the box.
It'll get there in about 10 years. XD
LOL. It's definately my new fav man.
And rightly so.....it's an awesome jacket!
Odd day. No pics, but I started with the LW A-1 as it was cold drizzly. Moved to the Levis sherpa trucker, then the Ventura. Now, I've got on a Patagonia down vest. Let's say that all matches my current mental state...
Alpha Industries N2-B Parka
Be well Scott.
Cool color on that Alpha, I've got one in gunmetal and love it.
After 1/2 HR of lint rolling, the old WWII peacoat gets its first wear of the season today. Had to let the JL up for air!
Thanks! They're very well made for the price (I got this one on a clearance for around $25 shipped). This one fits a bit tight though and my wife has decided that it would be better for her than for me so she confiscated it shortly after these photos were taken. I'll have to keep an eye out for another one in a size larger.
Type III-denim jacket, today.

Double breasted and can be buttoned in either direction, ie buttonholes on both sides. Made in Milwaukee. Company started in 1859 and was in business at least through 1937. Maybe more recent times, very scant info on the web.
Michael, that's sweet!!!
Thanks guys. I'm liking it a lot even though it needs work. It feels like something out of the '30s to me, but I really have now idea. The Maine woven cloth is amazingly nice. One can tell this was worn regularly for many, many years.

You may be able to match your coat with something Dinerman has posted.
He had an earlier thread, too: http://www.thefedoralounge.com/threads/mackinaw-coats-1920s-1950s.76243/
Thanks for the links Dr Damage. He had some real beauties shown there. None exactly mine, but a very similar one from the 30s and some from the 40s that were close. The later ones seemed to go toward the half belt. Very useful to study for sure.
Michael, the jacket is great, whenever it's made! Plus, I like your overall looks. Could I ask what these pants are? I think everything from top to bottom looks great. I also dig the second hat, from the behind shot. It looks kinda special.
