Nice jacket Roy...cold enough to wear that one still? LOL!

Keeping this outerwear kick going, here is a 'golden fleece' parka I found last week.
(ignore the dirty mirror, if I wore this outside I'd spontaneously combust... its like 106F/41C)

Here's my late 60's Lee "Westerner", last of the 100-J's.
Apologies for the repost, will get a fit-pic one day...

Great, I love vintage Lee!
Thanks, got it for a song and the condition is mint!
Hard to find these now without some kind of blemish or wear; I also have an olive green one.

The detailing is amazing, and especially around the collar with its contrasting lining and elaborate stitching, it reminds me a lot of something from Mister Freedom.
The gabardine appears to be selvedged- you can see a change in the weave on the picture of the inside of the placket, but the end has been sewn under, so i couldn't photograph it.
The buttons are shell, pearlescent, and sewn on so well it looks like none of them have had to be stitched back on. Pretty different now from even high-end shirts that seem to start loosing button thread on the first wear.

A recent find. It appears to be a custom made gabardine shirt from (I am guessing) the 1940s.
Absolutely beautiful shirt! The style and color looks 40s/early 50s to me, but I wouldn't be surprised if it had been made in the 30s. I hope it fits and you're able to wear it.

Paul & SM- yes, the SFS shirt fits me pretty well and I do wear it now & then. It's probably tougher than I'm giving it credit for, but its in such good shape I mostly just look at it.
