Vintage Camp Wear

I bought a couple of things from Historical Emporium, so I get a daily email.  I found his for Mr. Hefner:

The red brocade looks pretty spiffy, doesn't it?!

Yep, the brocades look good, but $150 just to be funny is a bit much.  Maybe somebody could make me a red canvas or red wool smoking jacket.  At least that way it would be o.k. to be around a fire.  Polyester melts.

Just to add, the local fabric place has red, burgundy, hunter green, and black canvas.

Yep, wear polyester around a fire, wear it for life!  Exactly why the Navy wouldn't let officers and CPO's to wear Certified Navy Twill aboard ship........
