Most of the jumpers/sweaters/cardies I remember wearing in the late 70s/early 80s were acrylic/Orlon or other manmade wool fabrics. Fred Perry, Slazenger, Cardin and Izod/Lacoste were all acrylic if I recall correctly. The only wool jumpers about were yer Argyll golf jobs (Pringle/Lyle etc) There were plain ones, but they were still too 'Casual', too pricey and too Corbett for my liking.
Quite like the look of the navy blue Dickies 'Eisenhower'. A bit more interested knowing the label/tag comes off without too much trouble. Had a look on the 'bay. As usual, you can get them cheaper in the US. Found one US seller that'll do you one for £43 all-in including p&p (lots of colours and sizes too) £50+ if you buy from one of the UK stockists.

I decided to hunt out a sheepskin for myself on 'the bay' today. Blimey, it's a minefield of toot out there. As usual, any half-savvy seller knows the keywords of 'mod', 'suedehead' or 'skin' will bring him/her a premium asking price. I usually buy stuff from US ebay, but the weight and postage of said item would be prohibitive.(A heavy coat would be comparable postage cost with an engine-block) So UK ebay it was. Sometimes a UK seller doesn't know quite what they have,...
Longest owned ? I guess it's my Sebago penny loafers I bought from Russell & Bromley back in the early 90s. I've been married in them on three separate occasions. I've had them re-soled and heeled less times than I've been married, so I highly recommend them. I've got an olive green unlined Harrington-style RL jacket I picked up in NY in '95 that's still going strong. Then again, I've probably been married more times than I've worn it. Oldest actual clothing item ? Well,...
Saw this mint, vintage 44" Sears Clicker/Drizzler jacket going on US ebay. Works out to about £28 (including p&p) if you live in the UK.

Looks very much like Armstrong next to Grissom. Not part of the same mission crew, but I'm sure all the NASA fellas hung out together as a crew.
