    Pictures please. Just nabbed a 40s/50s woolrich hunting jacket. it had something that looked a small bird's bone in the pocket.

    So your turn. Where are your pix?

    The pockets face back so that you can open them easily.

    Ha ha. Yeah, so... you can wear the jacket like a straightjacket??? Ha ha. The point is, the pockets go backwards. Like imagine the back of the coat is the front... that's the way these pockets are.

    They are game pockets, to hold the birds or other animals you killed while out hunting.

    I grabbed a pair as well. Depending on what season they are they will either be exactly the right size or probably a bit too small. But I've been considering picking up some 47s for a while so I couldn't pass up that price.

    I know that the issue with uneven pockets on the 3sixteen duffle was brought up some time ago, but i was lookin at the accessories section on their site, and their ties appear to be a bit wonky too... Tie 1 Tie 2 and the chestpocket on this jacket

    Werd, everything is uneven. I appreciate what they're doing, but they need to fix those things. I still have a tee from 3sixteen back when they were still a hypebeast streetwear brand.

    I also find it funny how the 3sixteen label reads 'New York City.' But then you look over an inch and there is a tag saying "Made in China."

    Really makes me think this company isn't really guided by the virtue of quality clothing but more so by profit and image.

    I guess that's sort of explained by their roots in hypebeasty graphic t's...

    Edit: I was just looking at their site again to see if they had some sort of "mission statement." Funny to note that they have no 'About Us' section on the main page, but when you go into the online-shop there is a link that reads 'About Us' at the top. When you click it, however, it just redirects you back to the main page...

    Really hard to tell on those ties, but it would be hilarious if they couldn't even get that right, their pattern guy must have the worst eyesight in the world.

    Oh. OK. Thanks. I guess in my case it will be all the cocktail napkins I pick up with wimmenz phone numbers.

    Nice jacket. It is however extremly similar (except asymmetrical chest pockets) to the classic Woolrich cruiser, which is the one I have owned. I dont however think that the back pocket is a "game pocket" since it is unlined, but rather a "map pocket".
