Recent Finds: Winter Jackets

I’ve recently added two new (vintage) jackets to my winter lineup.  Luckily, I’ve remained in pretty good shape, so a few of the tweets that I used to wear are now too big.  I like to think it’s my eating habits and pseudo-dedication to staying healthy, but more than likely they have just stretched out.

This black watch job by Pringle is an Ebay find.  I’ve been looking for a black watch jacket forever, and almost every one I come across is damaged, cut like a pillowcase, or made of a nasty blend.  Not this one…the fit is perfect (especially for a vintage jacket), and the colors are just right.  I’m not a huge fan of the buttons, but they aren’t something I’ll change right away.

Numero dos is a Made-in-the-USA Pendleton tweed, complete with a ticket pocket.  This one was a gift from the Goodwill Gods, and it fits like a glove.  I won’t have to alter this one an inch.  It’s a medium weight tweed, and the pattern is awesome.  I really like the touch of blue, as most of the shirts I wear are blue.  And I love those leather buttons, man.  I get older, and they stay the same age…

I can’t wait to give these bad boys a ride…

    I recently got a cashmere tweed jacket by Southwick very similar to your Pendelton one, even with the subtle blue check. I’ve only worn it once but I think it will be a favorite this Fall/Winter. Looking forward to seeing how you wear yours.
