1. Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.

    There is a support thread if you have any issues.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    BEAUTIFUL AND RARE LODEN JACKET!​


    [​IMG]

    Made in Austria

    Loden cloth originated in the Austrian Tyrol, where it quickly became a favourite with hunters, shepherds, and others who spent a lot of time outdoors, owing to its water-resistant properties and the high degree of warmth that it gives relative to its weight.

    The fabric is produced from the coarse wool of Alpine mountain sheep which has a natural short pile; this is woven into a loose cloth which is then repeated dunked in cold mountain water, dried, then dunked again to shrink it and produce a lovely tight, warm, yet lightweight cloth that's extremely durable, supple, and windproof.

    Traditionally, Loden cloth is blueish green, and the clothing that it's made from is traditionally accented with complementary forest green trim. Also traditionally, Loden jackets are finished with coin-based buttons; originally, these were real coins, but more recently the coin buttons are specially cast for Lodenwear.

    This jacket is a classic, traditional Loden jacket. Made in Austria, it is subtly darted,a nd has the traditional--NOT fashion-forward--Austrian three-button closure. The collar is finished with a traditional complementary green wool facing, while the pockets feature the same complementary forest green facings under the pocket flaps.

    The buttons are traditional coin buttons, modeled on coins current in the Austro-Hungarian Empire; this jacket also contains its spare coin fixed to the lining! There is one to each sleeve cuff, and, of course, three to the front closure. This jacket is fully lined, and features a single centre vent. It was absolutely beautifully made, and the detail of the construction is lovely. It's also in excellent condition, with the exception of a small spot of surface schmaltz on the bottom hem, as shown, which is almost unnoticeable and will easily come out with dry cleaning.

    This jacket was, of course, Made in Austria.

    Asking just $49, or offer, boxed and shipped in the USA. International inquiries welcome, with shipping at cost.

    Measurements:


    Chest: 21 1/2
    Sleeve: 24 1/2 (+2)
    Shoulder: 18
    Length: 31 1/8
