Vintage clothing and footwear

Wasn't sure whether to put these in the Nice things thread, the Sprogs thread or here. They could've even be posted in the Shoes that look better with age thread ;)

Anyway, (approximately) 52 year old, hand made by Harringtons, red leather shoes :D

Pulled this out of the closet to sell or trade and ended up liking the fit better than I remember.

Picked this up yesterday, bought it because I just thought it was a nice thing to own and it was only £10 but does fit the wife.

I think it is 1970s as it mentions dacron and has a care label but if anyone knows anything else I would be interested.

I think that logo wasn’t registered until 1981 and it seems the business was defunct about 10 years later

Nice score! Always liked the Penny's type one, those pleat stitch boxes remind me of the ones on WW2 Levis jackets.

Vintage US Army field trousers, dated 1956

Picked them up from a shop in Ukraine via Etsy

Only gently worn - well, I know they had been worn from the, ahem, stiff handkerchief in the pocket - t'was amusing chasing the wife with it, at least... all washed and clean now though

The seller marked them as M-51.  The inner label doesn't specifically say this... the other interweb versions I've seen, though with limited searching, do reference M-1951... however the specs look the same. I'd be interested to hear from anyone on Sufu in the know

Irrespective, I love them - quality throughout, massively spacious, lovely sateen fabric, adjustable waist yadda yadda yadda

The first couple of photos are closer to the true colour

Used to own/wear a woolrich identical to that one back in the 90's. It was very warm iirc.

I believe this is called an M-1947 (maybe someone here knows more). Used from the early '50s to early '60s. I think it's the precursor to the sateen fatigue shirts that we see in later Vietnam, reproduced by the likes of Orslow. They were made in HBT as well (Korean War?). I rather like this Jacket/shirts.

Just got this M65 in... I do like M65s but wanted one with more space for layering.  This is a Large and gives P2P 65cm so is plenty voluminous

Apparently from 1972 thought not sure from a quick look at the labels how they determined that... anyhow it's well put together and will do the job nicely

There is a stock number that starts with DLA. Inside that will be a two digit number that tells the year.

@cheapmuthafukr Great, thanks for your help... this has DSA100-72-C-1733... so it's got the 72.  Do you know what the DSA or DLA stand for?

Also from 1972 - thanks to those with dating expertise. 
Described as a Chemical Protective Liner shirt

The placket has a panel on the button side, so when the shirt is done up you’re essentially buttoned up twice:

Colour more accurate in next pic. Lovely old texture:

Looks in great order. What year was the second pocket introduced?

It sure is. & Great question, actually had to look it up. I know the WWI stuff had one pockets but I'm curious as to why they added the second pocket. Turns out it just seemed like a good idea for utility. It was introduced in (or around) 1940.
