    Found a match on ebay. Everything checks out to a late version of the jacket. Buttons just didn't look right to my very limited knowledge of old Lee stuff but they check out.

    Not entirely sure what these are from VV - they measure 37W x 20L... Men's capri's?

    Lastly a BB Jacket - Appears to be tied to LI Yacht Racing, not sure if it was limited production/made for a specific event or not. Found one on that other site, but not much additional info there.

    Can't get one of these to rotate for some reason...

    I beg to differ. Not a medical doctor perhaps but you certainly have a Masters in Thirifting with PhD's in both thifting NWT merchandise and thrifting absurdly unworn shoes. You sir, have shown more than enough evidence to be recognized by your peers with a Double Doctorate from TIT (The Thrifting Institute of Technology.)

    Cool BB jacket. I sailed growing up and raced at a bunch of those clubs. I think some of them may not exist anymore. Maybe it was a commemorative 80th anniversary thing? Though I'd venture to guess most who raced in 1932 may no longer be alive.

    Thanks! I thought it might have been a commemorative item, or maybe made for purchase at some local racing events? I wish it was my size - our boat is in one of the bays which has a few of these clubs. Knickerbocker closed a year or two ago.
