This is my first encounter with Synchilla. Can anyone help with some identification? Are there models that are more desirable? Thanks team.

Per Fueco - "the Original pile fleeces, Synchilla Snap-T's and the Retros are the most desirable. Synchilla is the mainline (it comes in regular and lightweight); Regulator is the high tech new stuff (since 2001, and it comes in R.5, R1, R2, R3, and R4, and has an R on the left sleeve); the Retro fleeces are a "throwback fabric" to the days before Synchilla when pile was king."

Dang, I have no idea how to process that information. This looks way more throwback than anything recent, but is zipped rather than snap-buttoned. 

 

Thanks for the info, suited.

Made in USA is good. Deep pile is good. Retro x is good (look for the satin breast pocket). Snap t is good. Dope colorways are good. I'd cop any synchilla vest.

Pctures of the rest of it?

 

If full zip, it's likely a synchilla jacket or a windproof synchilla jacket (blow through the fabric).

Tags spoiled if @Fueco wants to tell me this is something special :smarmy: Missing(?) inner lining, but still really substantial feeling.

Probably decent for everyday wear. Not something I would lust after, but perfectly serviceable.

I knew you would like that. Not a single label on it, not even a union tag. This is a great article about them, started in 1924, so I would assume late 20s or early 30s. Kind of fits me perfectly. Not keeping but its gorgeous.


edit - I just tried it on with the pants and its phenomenal. Keeping peepwall[1].gif
