    @SpooPoker very interesting suit! All of the "Z" type anti-gravity suits can be distinguished by that diagonal zipper across the front. The Z and Z-2 were both started around 1945/6, but I believe this particular suit started in 1950. U.S. Naval aviators wore suits with the "MIL-S-5085" designation, seen here on the 3rd line. That was used on Naval suits from 1950 to the late 1960's. I can't tell for sure, but if this was from a Navy pilot, most likely it is from the Korean War era.

    Newspaper article from 1945 talking about the new "Z" anti-gravity suits:

    God, I'm gonna regret this. And that's a sorority's hand sign that's just barely cut off.

    I have the same one (assuming yours is green). It's the only 346 line I've seen that's fully canvassed with what appears to be handwork. Not sure exactly how old it is.

    Any insight on this Military Jacket? I saw it yesterday and wasn't sure if this was a thing. Its a double breasted coat. I also found these Goretex winter trousers. @Pierson v Post @Nataku

    Probably 1970's. That's the original "346" (named for BB's location at 346 Madison Ave.), and is different from today's 346. The original 346 was well-made; the current 346 is made for the BB outlet stores and is junky. The original line was from the 1950's or 60's into the 70's; in the 60's the tag was black, and changed to blue in the 70's.

    I feel like there's no way to ask this without sounding like a jerk. With that said, do you seriously wear that out and about? Is it a special occasion shirt or do you wear it to the grocery store, post office, other everyday errands?

    And probably the best barbeque I've ever had. Fox Bros near Little Five Points. Wait was 1 hour 45 minutes on Sunday night so we ended up getting it to go.

    Fox-a-Roni
    Pulled Pork
    Ribs - hands down best

    Quote: Fox bros has a lot of hype but definitely lives up to it. If you ever go back try the fatty beef brisket. Out of this world

    I would have passed on it as well. However, if that bitch had Tommy Hilfiger spelled out on the back in some ridiculously large font, I would have thrown in on the pile.

    Technically, the lion crest is the tommy logo. I would probably have grabbed that myself.
