It says medium on the tag, but they do come up a little snug.

If you can make the sizes work G, i'd buy it, they're really nice sweatshirts and the colours of that^ one are just lovely.

I’d hazard to guess that the above is only a product pic, not the actual sweatshirt. I’m also interested @TheIntelligentHoodwinker

Anyone know about the relationship between L.C. King and Pointer Brand? I know they’re the same company, but wondering what makes Pointer so much cheaper than the former. 

I’ve had a hickory stripe chore coat for years (actually bought from a member here back in the day), and just came across a BNWT hickory chore coat from L.C. King today, which I bought. 
 

Is Pointer like, the son of L.C. King?

PSA - Maritime Antiques has a number of MFSC and Andersen-Andersen items for sale (including some otherwise hard to find indigo-dyed wool items).

JDelage, how do you navigate PSA successfully? Whenever I want something, I email Naoki who is always exceedingly helpful. But when I just want to browse, I guess at the Japanese and just fumble through because the English translation doesn’t seem to work. Thanks

^ Isn’t this how everyone does it Lance? :D

Select the brand, select garment type - tops, bottoms, etc, order by price ascending/descending and bob’s yer uncle!

And I think JD was just saying that Maritime Antiques in Denmark has some stuff on sale, not Pants Shop Avenue.
Use Google Translate to navigate PSA, that's your best bet.

I think @lance's problem is, when you use Chrome and have the auto-translate you can't skip through the pages anymore. If you are on page 1 from SDA shirts you can click on page 2 but it won't take you there. At least that's what I experience as well.
So I browse through site without translation, open everything I want to see in a new tab and have that tab translated then.

But I think @broark is right, too :D

You can modify the URL manually to enter the page number. Look at the URL on page 1, then click on page 2. In the URL, there's a "1" that will become "NaN" (maybe stand for "Not a number"). You can replace that "NaN" with 2, 3, etc.

Is it possible to have a chore coat fully wool/flannel lined? I have a classic duck Pointer coat that I'd love to wax and have a poor man's Barbour/Filson, but it's just too light and also scratchy on the interior for me to consider it as something to wear regularly. Anyone have experience with something like this?

@Coolguyzack that’s pretty hard to do if you want to do it properly and thusly very expensive at a tailor. I think you’re better of buying a lightly used Barbour.

What size is it...?

Tag size is medium, but is definitely a small and short in the body as they often are. Are you in the market for one?

Warehouse ships to the US, so you can order directly from their store.

anyone know which brands have a boiler suit/coverall  in khaki herringbone fabric? Freewheelers released one years ago but its not avilable anymore and quite pricey. I have my eye on the one from clubstubborn but its in ripstop fabric

Ive seen those clubstubborn overalls in my local vintage joint, they look pretty good.

Check out EG, they've made them in a number of styles/fabrics, there's def a gray herringbone not sure about khaki.

Coverall.

What is the intended purpose for buyers of this style?

I cannot think of any work environment (healthcare, engineering, petroleum, laboratory, hangar) that would consider it acceptable PPE.

It reminds me of something Kramer might have worn when he was getting dressed up and pretending he had a job.

No PPE’s required for working with manure / compost, but it’s nice to not get covered head to toe in shit all the same

Having a single garment that protects you (at least to some non-EH&S-compliant degree) from the elements and is quick to take on and off / can be worn over other clothes seems like it could come in handy plenty
