While there isn't much i could add to what eluther said regarding the flannels, to add fuel to the flames I would point out that I've seen acrylic/wool/alpaca/poly mix Needles Sportswear cardigans before. Needles is a very 1970s influenced brand - they use polyester, acrylic, rayon, tencel, mohair, velour fabrics etc. because of this. Its not a workwear brand (although they do also make some nice trad workwear pieces) and so they use some different kinds of materials some...
 The rebuild pieces are, well, 'rebuilt' in Japan.  Of course that doesn't mean the chopped up vintage shirts they're made from are of Japanese origin - they could be made anywhere, including Pakistan - and a lot of the rebuild shirts still seem to have the old labels on from the original manufacturer.

@sinnedk     I have a mission workshop sanction (in black).  Got it a few years ago (2011? I think).  Its been solid over that time, and the weather resistance is good.  On the other hand I think there are probably more interesting looking backpacks out there, and maybe also packs better suited to carrying multiple laptops on a regular basis.  If I did it over again I'd get the grey rather than the black.   For me one of the major advantages (and occasional...
Bodega has the m-65 x ma-1 (that'll be $950 ) and jacquard down jacket in. http://shop.bdgastore.com/collections/needles#prod-361420565   I also updated the stockists a bit in the first post and added a couple I missed  (I can de-spoilerify it if people would prefer).
music addict.  Which makes sense, although culture buff might have been just as or more accurate.  I think I'll pass on checking out One Direction at their suggestion though
