I know PutThisOn has posted about vintage Banana Republic in the past "Banana Republic (seller of safari-inspired adventure clothing), not Banana Republic (seller of Eurotrash-inspired business casual clothing.)" I'm not sure if that is because the stuff is rare, high quality, or Jesse Thorn just likes the aesthetic. I think this is the BR that I'm looking for, I've got to say I like the look of it too. Part 60/40 parka (WTF is contrast facing?), with a lot of extra details that I'd expect to see on Filson (Italy), Barbour TO KI TO, or some Daiki Suzuki designed jacket.
It's pretty generously cut... Any one here ever try to have this kind of outwear tailored?
Also, a pretty damn sweet vintage Hercules wool work shirt. I haven't seen too much vintage workwear on this thread, and as you guys are my main source of knowledge, I don't know too much about this one. I've seen the brand on a few vintage workwear blogs, it's winter, the shirt is wool, and it fits... so what the hell right?
The elbows are blown but I figure I can patch them up.
