Not to throw cold water on this (b/c that Southwick is the shit), but something doesn't seem to add up about the date.

2) Southwick was founded in 1929, but doesn't appear to have been called Southwick at that time. Apparently, the initial store was called Grieco Bros., and it was located in Massachusetts. http://www.southwick.com/history
Not sure what to make of the date on the jacket versus the company histories. Anybody know how to reconcile the two?
Hmm - good info to have - thank you. No idea about the dating on the tag - very doubtful it stands for December 30th as that wouldn't make sense without a year...otherwise I'm flummoxed.
Hit one store today - my GPS is whacked and cannot find the other 2 GW's I planned to hit. Had a pile of mainline Armani but it was just too dated to bother with; holey Harris Tweeds and a godawful Pal Zileri suit. Being much pickier than I used to be, only walked out with one thing - my first Chester Barrie ever found in a thrift. 100% cashmere to boot.
