This Shawl Collar deck jacket seems to be from Steve Alan’s 2009-2010 collection. Originally, depending on the store, it sold somewhere in the $350-$475 range, so not a cheap jacket. Proudly made in the USA. People go on about how much better US made goods are, and I agree from a standpoint of employment. Yet sometime between me ordering this jacket and it arriving, the bottom snap fell off. And within five minutes of me owning it, the second one dropped off. Thankfully, snap replacement is cheap, and it’s a great looking style, but for a jacket made in the USA and sold at that price, I would expect less shoddy workmanship.
This lightweight cotton jacket was made in the USA by Steve Alan. It is unworn, with tags, but the two bottom snaps have dropped off. It has patch cargo pockets and handwarmer pockets. The style takes influence from WWII deck jackets.

This vintage leather G-1 flight jacket dates from the Vietnam war era. It feels like it may be one of the cowhide ones as opposed to the usual goat. It has a bi-swing back, and knit cuffs and waistband. The zipper is missing the puller, and is separating from the leather in some places- so it needs to be replaced. The leather has all been freshly cleaned and conditioned, however, it still has a mildew smell from decades of storage which I have been unable to remove, so keep that in mind.

This vintage peacoat was issued during WWII. It has the ten button front, with corduroy pockets, and is made of kersey wool. It is missing one of the front buttons (easily sourced), and one has been re-sewn at some point with red thread. It is marked with the original owner’s name, Campbell, and is missing the original tag.

This vintage leather jacket was made for the USN. It is goat, with a real mouton collar. It has an action back, knit cuffs and waistband, a windflap and an interior gun pocket. There are stitch marks from a nametag from when it was issued. The town, “Poultney, VT” is written in the lining. The cuffs are replacements, and all the knits are in need of replacement. The main zipper is Conmar, with what may be a replacement conmatic puller. The prong of the zipper is missing, as are some teeth by the neck. The mouton is worn through and flaking. The lining is torn and repaired.
This is a vintage WWII issued USN bathing suit. It is cotton knit. with a drawstring waist, key pocket and crotch gusset. The front of the suit is lined. It is stenciled inside Bramble JB. There are scattered holes in the fabric, so I wouldn’t recommend wearing this one.
