    I would guess that it is vintage Swiss military. It was their common pattern for a long time.

    Really interesting finds! Those pants are awesome and you will definitely get a decent amount on the jacket with the patches!

    Sorry man, I am keeping them! The one pair is an 11 and the other a 10.5, but for some reason they fit my 11-11.5 foot. I don't ask questions. The store had another pair in a 10.5w in a lighter shade of brown. If you are interested, pm me.

    No one else asked what it was. Nat said he learned something new and I provided more information about it.

    We often have contributing opinions/experiences here and it's the main reason we all gain new information from this thread.

    Continuing the hat requests, does anyone have a gray/charcoal fedora or trilby in 7 1/2 or 7 5/8 they'd be willing to part with? Need to find one within the next month.

    This is not your trash thread. There is a thread for that though.

    Big shout outs to lastdonb for hooking me up with my very first CANVASSED Harris Tweed jacket!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I was bummed my BB blazer didn't fit and was nervous about this one not fitting...It almost didn't fit but fits very slim just the way I like them!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I can't believe I got a canvassed Harris Tweed jacket!!!

    Also, this is not a thrift brag but a discount brag. My girl and I went to the mall, ate some shitty mall food and was really bummed about it...Then we wondered in a Levi's outlet store and BAM!

    I picked up my very first 1966 LVC 12 oz. Cone Mills red line selvedge jeans. MSRP was $235. I got them for $70!!! Yay for outlet stores!

    Interesting haul today.

    My first successful attempt at reuniting a suit. Although, I didnt have to look very far. I saw the pants on the same rack a several feet down and took a mental note, than BLAM! spotted the jacket.

    Milano Fit
    Fully Canvassed
    Navy Blue
    Blue on Blue Stripes
    Milano Fit
    2-Button Style
    Working Cuffs
    Pick Stitching
    Double Vented
    Fully Lined
    Flat Front, Cuffed Pants
    Whats wrong with it?....The top button on the front is loose.

    Oh yeah, as always, none of it is available, sorry guys.
