Nataku has taught Spoo well! You are correct, 1963 "Vietnam Era" if you decide to list it on the Bay.

I figured 1965 based on this, but it's not exactly clear:

 

 DSA stamped items introduced a systematic dating process:

  • 1962 thru 1964 - Prefix of DSA-1, Suffix of E6Y (Y=Year)
  • 1965 - Prefix of DSA-1, No Dating Suffix
  • 1966 - Prefix of DSA-100, No Dating Suffix
  • 1967 thru 1977 Prefix of DSA-100, Dating Suffix of YYM (YY=Year, M=Month)
Figured since there was no E6 then the year after DSA-1 it had to be 1965.  63 would be pretty obvious though, is there a better resource?
 
...and these. When I first spotted the Butterfly tie, I thought it'd be Hermes.  Not quite, but nice. +Polo with the pony for flip.

No clue on the "E6" part, but the rest is all correct...maybe Nataku will chime in on that. And to answer the reproduction question....they make new ones..but won't find one with an old DSA on it...remember they probably wore once or twice when it came to "dress" uniforms so thats why its in such good condition.

PS - Sent the company a note asking for some info / what year collection it's from (fingers crossed).

I may still pull the trigger, but now can't choose biggrin.gif

Yeah, but I dig a vest with a lapel much more than the standard ones.

Discount fit:

Duckie Brown

Tellason

gifted Frye boots

 

I'm probably in the minority, but I'd lose the donut cuffs. Try wearing them uncuffed and see if they stack well. If not, get them hemmed to a point where you could get by with no cuffs or at least smaller ones.

post #84116 of 109566

or learn how to fold a cuff properly, done well it won't stack so much.

Hey, man, if you point me to a resource, I'm ready to learn.

 

But I'll probably at least hem a bit of the length because they really are too long.

Plus, this being a subtle herringbone would make it that much harder to find the matching pants. Oh well, for 30$ the jacket is still fine by me.

Speaking of which, I've still been getting out there,but, because I'm still waiting on this ebay thing to blow over, I've only been buying stuff for myself. Since I really have no need/space for anything new, I haven't been picking much up. However, I met up with one of my buddy's the other day, and he asked me to keep an eye out for him for a gray sport coat. I didn't find one, but I did find this:
AppleMark

AppleMark

BBGF by Cantarelli charcoal suit. I reunited the jacket with the trousers in one of the biggest thrift stores in the city. Luckily, the trousers had the little BBGF "hand tailored" logo on the waist band. Still had to sift through about 200 pairs. biggrin.gif I think this is only the 3rd or 4th time this has worked for me in the past 2 1/2 years or so.
