Sears & Roebucks (Vintage Sears) / $28
This jacket has some stories. (And not just cause it's from the 70s.)
I found a jacket just like this one in my local goodwill, and loved it. Problem was, it was $30, which--for Goodwill--is crazy expensive. I decided to try and wait it out, hoping that it would still be there by Goodwill's 50% off everything Black Friday Sale. No such luck. Well, the thought of that coat haunted me for too long, so I found a similar one on eBay (for 2$ cheaper including shipping!) and got it.
Wore it on a recent hot-springing adventure and it was perfect. A big heavy insulating outer layer that kept the wind off of me, and started keeping me noticably warm the second I put it on. The sherpa lining is around the chest back, and collar, and the sleeves are quilted. The collar isn't quite as timeless as Levi's gorgeous sherpa jackets, but when popped, does a great job of keeping my neck warm. :)
It's about peacoat length rather than denim jacket length, which I like. I'd very confidently take on below-freezing temperatures in this jacket, and easily with thermal/sweater/flannel layers.
It's definitely vintage-looking, but I think the goofy-big lapels might come back. :)
