There is a RG wearer here. I see him most mornings getting coffee. He steps out of his stock 350Z. Is wearing snakeskin cowboy boots. G-star Jeans. Has an RG ish shirt tucked in. With a belt buckle that is prolly $$$ in weighted silver.
Shaved short colored hair, ample jewellery. And a big ass neckchain with sunglasses. He's like the Japanese Disco Cowboy.crackup[1].gif

Gotta respect his swag. Probably a cool guy.

Is there an "R" in a Circle in the lower left corner of this tag?

We should all post pics of our local RG stereotypes. Id be curious to see how location plays a factor in their swagger.

"swagger".

I picked this up from a damn near toothless salty old dog at a flea market. @Nataku, @Pierson v Post good move at $30?

and how old is it? Im really horrible at this. The guy said he thought vietnam era but I think its older.

 

@SpooPoker very interesting suit!   All of the "Z" type anti-gravity suits can be distinguished by that diagonal zipper across the front.  The Z and Z-2 were both started around 1945/6, but I believe this particular suit started in 1950.  U.S. Naval aviators wore suits with the "MIL-S-5085" designation, seen here on the 3rd line.  That was used on Naval suits from 1950 to the late 1960's.  I can't tell for sure, but if this was from a Navy pilot, most likely it is from the Korean War era.

 

Newspaper article from 1945 talking about the new "Z" anti-gravity suits:

I have the same one (assuming yours is green). It's the only 346 line I've seen that's fully canvassed with what appears to be handwork. Not sure exactly how old it is.

Any insight on this Military Jacket?  I saw it yesterday and wasn't sure if this was a thing.  Its a double breasted coat.

I also found these Goretex winter trousers.

Probably 1970's.  That's the original "346" (named for BB's location at 346 Madison Ave.), and is different from today's 346.  The original 346 was well-made; the current 346 is made for the BB outlet stores and is junky.  The original line was from the 1950's or 60's into the 70's; in the 60's the tag was black, and changed to blue in the 70's.

Mono-colored but with embroidering everywhere, front, back, side, top, bottom, you name it

I feel like there's no way to ask this without sounding like a jerk. With that said, do you seriously wear that out and about? Is it a special occasion shirt or do you wear it to the grocery store, post office, other everyday errands?
