Freaky Deaky

Brooks Brothers hasn't always been staid. I suspect this two-button, twin-vented sack jacket is from the early sixties. I will take a shot of the label later and maybe someone with more knowledge can come up with a vintage.

This is the kind of find that makes all those fruitless trips to the thrift shop worthwhile.

I like it. Is it a lightweight? This sport coat is something I would wear to a garden party.

This is sort of a deja vu moment for me, but do ever get compared to the weird scientist guy in "Repo Man"? He probably wasn't wearing a Brooks Bros. "Eliott Stout" pattern, though.

Seriously: I like this one.
