Is there anywhere at a lower price point than Magnoli that sells accurately colored (ivory/brown rather than white/black) jackets with the option to have no back embroidery, and preferably made of a more comfortable material than 100% polyester?
This movie is one of my all time favorites. I’ve been following this thread on and off since it started. I must have read through the thread ten times or more.
After years of following this thread, I’ve taken another pass. I’d like to thank everyone that contributed to this thread. It’s packed full of useful information for anyone interested in this movie.
I’ve contemplated pulling the trigger on the jacket this whole time. I discovered that steady are still selling the jacket. Im 5’11” and 190 lbs and usually wear 42r. So I ordered a large based on the sizing and what I read in the thread. It fits snug, too snug to fit another jacket under it. Based on their sizing guide it measures as a medium. I’m considering ordering the XL or ordering custom from Indy at this point.
Aside from the sizing issue, the jacket is pretty well made. The colour is more champagne than ivory. The trim is black instead of brown. The embroidery is top notch. Overall a great looking jacket. I just wish it fit better.
Stacy Adams Madison’s are easy to find. Stacy Adams.com, Amazon.com or Shoes.com have them.
Indys still got some henleys. Gaspar gloves are still available in a few sizes. Selima’s Money 2 are still available too.
I'm not sure if anybody has posted this here yet since I haven't read through this thread in a while, but I found two pretty good matches for the white henley that are a little cheaper than the Magnoli ones.
The Henley was designed as a rowing shirt two hundred years ago before hitting its stride in combat. For this version, we are based on vintage Henley T-shirts from the 1880-1920s, which feature a wide front and threaded cuffs. It is made of 250 gsm heavyweight cotton fabric, which has a great...
The first one is from Madewell, which is an off shoot of J.Crew, and it has the distinctive elastic arm cuffs but the collar is a bit thinner. the second is from a Chinese company called Bronson that make replica vintage clothing, and it also has the arm cuffs as well as more accurate wider collar. I own a couple of Madewell pieces and can tell you the quality is on par with J.Crew, and I haven't bought anything from Bronson yet, but from what I can tell from reviews they are actually pretty decent quality for the price. Link below for one.
I acquired a couple of new tees from vintage repro company Bronson Mfg.
I also just bought the dark indigo slim jeans from Everlane, and although I've never owned the Acne Max Raw jeans, I can say based on pictures I've seen of them that the Everlane jeans seem to be a pretty good alternative. Especially since they've discontinued the Levi's Rigid Dragon. been wearing them a couple days now, and I'd the quality is pretty great as well. On par with mid range selvedge and raw denim I've tried (they are not selvedge by the way). I'll link to them below.
