    Linda,

    Very cool! A ice collection too.

    By the way, are you the person who collects and makes jewelry out of vintage, pre 1950s, celluloid chains? I found one just this morning from the 30s or 40s and wanted to give it to someone who could make a necklace or charm bracelet, etc. Free.

    Anyway I love your shirts and jackets!

    I love wool plaid jackets, too! I have a fairly large collection of Pendleton 49ers, both vintage and contemporary. So cozy!

    I love the siesta jackets - I never knew they were called that! Does that just refer to the fringed ones?
    I would love one for here in the UK. It hailed today. In August! I think the heatwave is over...

    Wow that is a real close copy! I wonder which would have the wider shoulders?

    Just found this jacket this past week, the Irish version of the Siesta jacket. Never knew about these Siesta jackets till I read this forum...always learning something here, thanks for sharing with us Linda. Love seeing your wonderful collections!

    The Irish version has a "hood". Not tailored as nicely as the older American Siesta jackets but still similar.

    Better grab them when you can. The repurposers are doing things to them like bleaching the bottoms?
    ahem.....
    Love those Siestas. Love plaid anything this time of year.
