    Some vintage work wear, cross-posted from Thrifting thread.

    It's vintage. It's denim. It's lined with a corduroy collar. So far sounds like a solid PRL "inspired by" piece.There are no tags except for a UGWA post-1931 tag with Duck Goods on it, located inside front side pocket, but there is some thread on the left breast pocket that shows there was a label there at some point. Buttons are rusted but jacket is in mint shape. Left breast pocket is for the pocket watch (the opening is in the middle) and a second button hole across from it for the watch chain. Some folks on another site are up in the air about it. Maybe it's a Lee, maybe a Pay Day. I'm still working on an ID.

    Great stuff! Those Chipp jackets look early 70's to me, simply based on styling.

    The denim chore jacket is cool as hell, it looks like something that would make RRL foam at the mouth. I had a pair of vintage Filson duck cloth pants that had those laurel buttons on them...fwiw.


    Here's a (custom?) 60's-era Anderson Little Green Tweed. A million and one details to fawn over. Triple patch pockets, ticket pocket, sack, 3/2 roll, and blue paisley lining. Measures approx 38 S, with very strong shoulders (19"!)

    Re: Chipp. I own several two button jackets and a suit from the mid 80s through the early 90s.
    All but one have side vents and darts with nipped waists. They are a mix of RTW and MTM.
    I can't part with them. I am about 5lbs (2.3 kilos) from them fitting again.
