We asked up and coming clothing brand, The Vintage Voyeur, to give us his chosen few.


Vintage Bailo Goretex Survival Jacket

Pockets. I do like a jacket with a lot of pockets, and this has got as many as you’re probably ever going to find in one place. A Shoplifters dream. It was between this and a Paul and Shark Scoop in the same colour as they’re very similar, but this just shaded it. I originally had the Teflon version of this but it was massive, and wearing a huge beige jacket that looks better buttoned right to the top and at the time having very short cropped hair it did give off a slight look of Jerzy Belowski so I had to get rid. Luckily I managed to track this one down soon after.


One True Saxon Camo Jungle Parka

I think I’ve had every colour of this jacket at one point or another. Brought out back when One True Saxon did infact make quality stuff and wasn’t rinsed to death. I’m lead to believe that this is a sample, there’s no hood on this version which is something I like about it. I’m off hoods at the moment, I think I’ve done my years of standing in pubs sweating my balls off wearing big fuck off coats with hoods. Just take it off you say? Would be the easiest solution yes, but if you’re reading this then you’re probably the type who understands that just doesn’t happen. Anyway back to the jacket, the camo is made up from the shape of the Counties of England, fact fans.


 Neighbourhood CPO Overshirt Jacket

Cool Jacket from a cool label. Like I say, I’m into hoodless jackets at the moment so this fits the bill. By next week I’ll probably be bang into hoods again and this won’t get a look in. I think probably the main thing that drew me to it was that it reminded me of the old Stone Island overshirts that I used to pine for when I nipped into Life in Leeds when I was a kid, I’ve had a fair few of them over the years but I don’t get on with the fit of them these days. This has got a much more modern cut while retaining that look. Right, I better go sort that fucking weeding out eh.
