Eddie Bauer Kara Koram most likely from the 1960's or 70's with a custom fur collar. Debating selling this in case anyone wants to be really warm, PM me. Langlitz racer and Thedi vest underneath.

Happy Friday guys. View attachment 565831 View attachment 565832 View attachment 565833
I think for whatever reason in your personal style your shortish sleeve works, perhaps just wear a simple leather wristband or something around the smallest part of your wrist.

What's up guys. Any thoughts on whether I'm pulling off this FH SR or not? I like the fit and love the jacket but the sleeves... Always going to be an issue with me with stock jackets because of my height. I treat it with the old "don't give a shit" mentality but I secretly do care perhaps more than I ought to.

Also, this is probably not allowed but check out these engineers I just found. Likely from the 60s or 70s?

Happy Thursday. View attachment 565476 View attachment 565473 View attachment 565474 View attachment 565475
I'm not a fan of short sleeves at all, but it looks really cool on you. It has a bit of a rock star attitude. I'd say you can wear it.

A bit of a cold snap here in the UK this week has meant it was -2° for my walk this morning, so I layered up under my (yawn!) M65 with a thermal base layer and a quilted liner vest.

I'd love this jacket to look like it has a bit of wear on it, but even though I'm putting plenty of wear on it* it just doesn't.

*literally every day since I got it. It shrugs off everything.

From a trade with @Corky Corcovado. 70’s Levi. Despite being 40 years old the pile is still more plush than a new model. For you purists it also lacks handwarmers. Interestingly it is tagged a size 42. Just fits me in the waist. I am not a 42 in anything modern. 40 tops. My new Medium has much less taper.
I can’t see these jackets anymore without thinking about Frank Gallagher from “Shameless”.

Beautiful brown gabardine weave that has a golden shimmer in the light.

I think I finally found the jacket that inspired this jacket that I tried to buy and have re-made. In the end however, it was simply too far gone. But I still like the style and function and would still enjoy having something re-made like this one...
