Tailcoat is awesome, Spoo. Same tags as my WWII-era army officer's coat posted earlier in the thread, so probably '40s or thereabouts.

Off a fantastic OG brooks brother blazer
Nicest quality bb piece I have held
Can post pics if these tags prove it is old enough to be cool

Early to Mid 70's likely.

Spoo - what do you know about vintage Basco (Barney's All-American Sportswear Company)? Found an old plaid wool coat today. Wondering if it's as cool/rare as I think it is. My wife has my car and it's in the trunk so no pics right now.

Alright, here it is. (As much as I hate when people say "sorry for the shitty photos"......well, sorry for the shitty photos. Got a new camera today and I have no idea how it works yet. Case in point, the full shot turned out blurry and I'm too lazy to go back upstairs to take a new one right now.) I found a few articles about Barney's resurrecting their Basco line, but I can't find much about original Basco stuff. http://www.acontinuouslean.com/2012/08/14/barneys-new-york-resurrects-basco/

 

Anyone got any info?

Not vintage. 80s/90s. As to rarity, I never heard of it, so that's either highly desirable or highly undesirable. biggrin.gif

Is it well made?

Oddly enough, I think "vintage" technically means 25 years and it sounds like Basco was originally from the late 70s/early 90s from what I've read. So get ready to start seeing purple Girbauds in here I guess. smile.gif

Anyway, it is well made. In the few minutes I checked it over, it seemed on par with the better Pendleton/Orvis/etc coats I've had. Not the craziest thing ever but pretty cool.

I've been seeing kids at school wearing purple Girbauds. To be fair, it's fashion design school, but still....facepalm.giffacepalm.giffacepalm.gif

I didn't know there was a technical definition of "vintage." Maybe I should have said "not very old." In any case, this thread is for stuff that's interesting because it's old, not just modern stuff that's interesting for its own sake, IMO. The older the better.

The 80's/90's are not vintage.


That being said, the sport coat has a wonderful pattern and colors. Unfortunately you can see the low gorge and low-buttoning hard 3-button front from your pictures which may date it in a pejorative sense. Nylon also seems to have been blended into high-quality menswear in the 80's, every Armani Collezioni jacket from said era seems to have nylon in it.

I posted this a while back and dated it '62 based on info from another member who saw pics of the tag. I reached out to Brooks Brothers to confirm the method of dating, but never heard back. Today the jacket sold on eBay and I found it interesting that the shipping address was the Brooks Brothers flagship store on Madison Ave. I googled the name of the buyer and it turns out they are a BB historian. Hopefully this is some sort of confirmation of the date. Regardless, the coat couldn't have found a better home.
