post #89881 of 117932
After finding that Sierra Designs 60/40 about two weeks ago, I got all psyched today when stumbling across something similar...



Turns out, it's a weird vintage 60/40-esque thing made from a KIT in the early 70s. Not a ton of information on it, but it's still pretty cool...
But just look at that lining! (Click to show)


Also, the belt of a true badass... biggrin.gif



I also found a pile of vintage tweed hats. Dunn & Co Harris Tweed, Churchill Ltd, Dobbs, Stetson, all pretty sweet. If anyone is interested, I could post pics...

Frostline stuff was wicked cool back in the day. if the person who made it knew what she/he was doing, it's good.

Thanks, Wes!

 

It seems like a pretty cool piece, something right up Barrel's alley at least. Sort of a workwear denim shacket with three pockets. Lots of selvage showing... No label, which is sort of weird.

ive been looking for a dope PRL cardigan, missed out on a RLPL nwt  bid by $2 but found this so its cool

i like nylon blended it really helps keep the shape of the stuff so thats why missing the RLPL sucks but hey

Nice! Burnt orange is my favorite color for vintage packs, parkas and jackets. Frostline was one of many kit companies from the 60's and 70's. Everything you needed to make the piece would be mailed to you. You just sewed it together at home. It really made the piece more personalized. Pretty cool idea and Frostline was one of the more successful companies hat did this. There were many others as well but they were pretty obscure. Plain Brown Wrapper, Sundown and Country Ways are some examples. I have a Plain Brown Wrapper burnt orange/tan mountain parka. The design is really cool. Haven't seen anything else like it/ I'll post some pics tomorrow as it's relevant to this thread. I think I paid $3.99 for it a number of years ago.

I know the feeling! That label dates it to the late 70's-early 80's. They went under in 1983, if I remember correctly.

As cool as that rose logo label is, their old ice-pick label was my favorite.

I figured it was the "newer" label. Still really cool! I wish it was a large!

 

It's a vest, by the way. I somehow forgot to add that when I was posting from the parking lot at Sav3rs!

Yeah, man, be proud! It's better than the reason I flip! Which is to pay off a student loan that I used to obtain a degree from a worthless institution!

Do we like Donna Karan Couture?

 

Edit: I'm thinking that it's a negative.

Started photographing/measuring the items I picked up over the holiday.

 

Thought I'd share this (as well as the Denver skyline canvas print I thrifted and hung in my office).

Huh. Interesting. There's a jacket at a local thrift that I've seen for the last 2 months. It's probably ripped or something but I haven't even bothered to check the size on it because of the label...


I'll give it a looksie next time.

If it hasn't jumped out as something you would wear for two months, why take another look?
