    Typical build, but they offer a shorter or longer option, and before they start making it they'll call and confirm chest measurement.
    They have a lined and unlined option, and about 7 color options.
    They also offer a different style that's a bit more western wear style.

    It's the history behind them that fascinates me. This is why I still go to weekend garage sales. I am not paying for the item, may it be a jacket or a tea cup, but the first person story the seller has for me. I find that history told through peoples personal perspectives are very different than what we would expect.
    It's getting really hard to find descendants selling their family heirlooms and have spent enough time with their late grannies to tell their story.
    If you were lucky enough to buy a vintage jacket direct from its descendants and were told a personal story behind it, then you have hit the jacket pot. When you do move the jacket on, remember to move the story with it. A jacket is just a jacket, it will last only until the it decompose. But a good story last forever.

    CALCRAFT Sherpa lined wool vest.

    I bought it for next to nothing off Ebay a while back to see if I liked wearing a vest, it turns out I do and I quite like this one.

    I can't find anything about this brand, but I'm guessing early 90's based on the star symbol for the MADE IN USA .

    had a sherpa lined suede vest as a kid with these same USA snaps.

    If anyone has some information for me about this brand I'd sure love to know something.

    SJC 33. Just ordered the re-release of this jacket in navy blue with leather trim. Really excited for that one! I haven’t had the same luck Terry has had in finding these. I do love a wool Halfbelt. I suppose this is where I roll up my sleeves and eat my words about repros. LOL.

    Not bad for a 75 year old jacket ;-)
    I'm just glad they're all too short for me.

    Would you wear this jacket to work in an office? Only on casual Friday or any time?

    Yes. Anytime. I always have at least 2 change of clothes at the office though.

    Cal CR. IMO, this is the pinnacle CR.
