So yes, after having seen Rose Bowl I think it´s about time to have a thread for vintage garments and items that work well with denim.

I snatched this beautiful army jacket...20 bucks well spent

Any limit to what counts as vintage? I say at least 25 years old.

i've a few vintage tshirts - sadly they're mostly too small for me now, so they're in storage until the kids are old enough for them...

i fucking hate pink floyd, but it's an awesome image...

Keeping this outerwear kick going, here is a 'golden fleece' parka I found last week.

Lovely peacoat and agree on the fit.

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...

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.

A recent find. It appears to be a custom made gabardine shirt from (I am guessing) the 1940s. Tag reads "San Francisco Shirt Shop, 816 Kearny street". I found one reference to this company from 1929, that's all I could dig up.
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.

That's wonderful. I had a lovely vintage olive green shirt very like that, not western style, but essentially identical construction and detailing around the collar and seams. I've gone into mourning for it now.

My guess would be that shirt is much older than the '40's...

Well, it reminds me very much of an LVC 1920's Sunset Shirt I have, only much more luxurious. The cut, the tailoring, the white stitching, the size of the pockets all suggest pre-war anyway. I'm not saying that same style couldn't have been carried through after the war, but I would guess it belongs in the '20's...

^Well, the company was in existence in 1929, so that certainly is possible. I'll have to do some more research.

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.

Re the date - there were some Western items like that starting around 1926, but they're not common until the mid 30s, with the rise of dude ranches. My guess would be 37-52 ish, but would love to know more .

^Wow, those are all incredible, wgmds. I especially like that second jacket.

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.
