      I'm liking that jacket a lot.

        That is an astonishingly clean looking jacket for a vintage thrift.

        What sort of reconditioning did it take to get the leather to come out that well?

          It was in good condition except for being super dusty when I found it. The only real wear was a bit of pilling on the knitted portions. I think it must have sat in storage, unworn, for a long time before it got donated.

          I got it a few years ago. I cleaned the dust off with a very light treatment of saddle soap, then conditioned the whole thing with Obenauf's LP and a heat gun. A few weeks ago I retreated it with Schnee's leather conditioner.

          [Edit] This jacket is a good lesson that you should always take a quick glance through the women's clothing racks when thrifting. This is a men's 38 but it was hanging in the women's coat rack when I found it.

            Can I also say that I'm loving the cargos? Lol.

                I had a clear winner in my mind before [MENTION=2341]LesserBlackDog[/MENTION] posted. Now its hard to say.

                Also, apologies for being slow to make the poll. Was trying to figure out when Sunday ended in the states.

                  The poll-making is my job, so no apologies are necessary (except from me).

                        It's hard for me to tell from the lighting, but do those chinos lean more Olive Green or Forest Green? I've been looking for a good pair of non-olive green chinos for a while to add to the rotation.

                          Definitely forrest (partially colorblind but I compared to an olive field coat and asked the wife). But they are a couple years old so I don't know if they can be found again.

                              Are those the "broken twill" cargo pants from LE? If so, I have the same and they're ridiculously soft and comfortable...

                              [MENTION=3269]Shomas[/MENTION], did you recently pick that LBM up from yoox? If so you snagged it right out of my Dream Box...

                                I actually picked it up from Yoox about 8 months ago. It's awesome - no joke. If you can get even a slightly good deal on it, go for it.
