Have you ever noticed anyone else wearing one?

actually no, either on the internet nor on the streets. in berlin there are only very few people sharing love for heritage, workwear related clothes, though there a shops like burg&schild, dc4 etc.

My older brother has the same cardigan, and he's not even vaguely into workwear - North Sea Clothing has plenty of fans here, way outside the workwear dudes.

Doesn’t surprise me- you see it ever so often here, funny thing, the most random comments, bank tellers
People in the grocery store, I got ( I like your shirt from over 30 people)
It was the red and white Henley from LVC, a 1880’s reproduction from one of our mining trips.
In second place, the most compliments went to a reversible ghost-skater hoodie I used to wear years ago.

Killer b- I might be wrong, but that cardigan look seems very English to me?

I guess we're a pretty cardiganed nation. It does get cold here.

This catalog is missing its cover, late teens? Probably 20's?

It's always hard to judge the prices from something a hundred years ago but average wages for ordinary hourly workers in the early 20s varied from $35 to $45 a week (48 hour weeks) for union employees. More for foremen and the like and probably a lot less for non-union workers and for those who received compensation in the form of housing and meals (loggers, for instance). But except, I guess, for union fees, there were no deductions at all. Wages also varied by region. They weren't much higher when I was born in 1946. Currently, I'd say that average hourly wages are on the low side, compared to prices.
 
I might note that many of those boot styles were still available in 1970.
