I'm on a watch-roll this month! Had the itch to do a late-night thrift run and came across this little gem @ $9.99 smile.gif

Vintage Longines-Wittnauer:

Still running smooth and accurate. Love!

Any interest in this JCrew Vintage Washed cord blazer? 3 button, single vent. Color is a medium, medium dark brown. Fully lined, in excellent shape. Size small. Exterior pockets are still sewn shut. Would work well as a casual fall jacket. Pics below.

It's not RLPL, but it's still a pretty okay find...

584526

Vintage (I'm guessing late 70s by the Union tag) Polo Ralph Lauren sport coat in cream/brown houndstooth plaid. Some sort of wool/linen mix with ticket pocket and side vents.

Sadly, arms are too short for me... ffffuuuu.gif

Edit: this jacket sold. Thanks for all the interest, peeps.

Is that not brown/cream Glen Check? Or are my eyes going funny? Whatever it is it's a nice find and you can easily have the sleeves altered. It's a quality OTR make so there should be enough cloth in there.

It's a 42l. If anyone is interested, shoot me a message and I can post some measurements or something.

Not so sure that is 70s. I have a PRL by Corneliani suit in a fabric that looks just like that, and it wouldn't be more than a few years old.

I based my estimate on the union tags and general styling. Could be early 80s as well, but I really don't think it's a lot later than that. Could be wrong, though.

I have a hard time telling the difference between Glen Check and houndstooth plaid, honestly. You're probably right. Believe me, I checked the sleeves for extra fabric, as it fits me perfectly just about everywhere else. Unfortunately there's not enough to let so I'm a sad panda.

Measurements on it are:
Shoulder to shoulder seam in back: 19"
Sleeve (shoulder seam to arm opening on outside): 26"
Chest (armpit to armpit in front with jacket buttoned): 20"
Length (bottom of collar to bottom of jacket): 31"

Polo reworks fabrics and colorways over many decades.

Based on the size of lapels and the pocket flaps and the union label, I would put it in the late 70s. At this point lapels had begun to narrow a bit from the early&mid 70s max, but the blocky pocket flaps lagged a bit, stylewise.

Now that lapels are widening again with 70s influences, vintage Polo from this period looks better than it has for some time.

Here's a questionable find: a Neiman Marcus Sandhurst SC (dusty brown with red/beige windowpanes). Slightly big on me in the chest/waist, but a good enough fit to take a try on because I liked the design. Anyone know about the quality? Did Neiman Marcus have their house brand sport coats made by anyone reputable?

N-M is a consistently luxurious department store. None of their house brands are bad.

The quality you can feel with your fingers, or not.

Don't know the maker, but many (most) US suit makers from that period are defunct.
