Logger…

Feels like wearing shorts with vintage logger jacket…

1

in the most heavy-duty and popular form…among vintage Northwestern loggers as seen on old Darius Kinsey and other photos.

3

The most typical detail combination of:

-W’d up sleeves, yoke and back

-Upper 2 pockets only

4

Half fly-front and small chest pockets make this jacket more classic.

5

The only problem of these jackets is…just way too much presence for city streets.

Short stay…

I’m staying in Japan now….but much shorter than usual.

That means I don’t have much time left for shopping…..so I did place some order online, or put a hold on some items before I left.

I gave a shot on French again…..in black thin moleskin and more vintage details…..the result???

Mmmmm…

q1

Burlington…..I checked this out again….for cuff details.

q2

You know some Japanese cartoons are really something else.

To me, he is the very best.

YOSHIHARU  TSUGE

q3

Bought this when I picked up a hold.

I knew this Western Field coat fits me really well….thank god I was looking for a hunting jacket with really good fitting pattern.

I love these “W”…..don’t know why though.

4

My father used to use this in Black….around 1970?

5

We used to have this bird back in 60s in my home.

I didn’t know it was made in Japan….for export?
