Long overdue post but It was great to meet Slab2 and Ongaku couple of weeks ago in Amsterdam  and to put faces into avatar's! (and Ongaku looks exactly like his avatar btwWink)

Strictly speaking, "vintage" is a winemaking term. But I only speak strictly some of the time.
 
For clothing and footwear, however, I tend to think of vintage as something from before when I can remember it being a currently available item, both new or as surplus (but not used), and I'm 72. But that doesn't mean I can remember things very clearly, much less accurately. As an example, I do remember when most men still wore hats regularly, the kind with wide brims,  especially when dressed up and when suit jackets did not have a vent in the back.

Can anybody tell me the logic of a pocket like this. I believe they’re called window pane pockets but I can’t figure out the purpose of them.

Seems to be a similar goal to adding a pleat to the front, but along a different dimension: means the bottom of the pocket can pull out to be deeper than the effectively-1D seam, at the expense of some width.

I don't really like them much; I've only had one shirt with that sort of pocket, but I found that things caught a bit on the inner seam whenever I tried to put them in too vigorously…but maybe that's just a sign that I should calm down some with the pocket insertions.

It’s a “sweat-proof” pocket to keep one’s cigarette pack dry. The idea is that the cig pack sits in a pocket that doesn’t rest directly against a sweaty shirt. Big Yank used it most famously. The other larger pocket on the other side of the shirt could also hold a tobacco tin and rolling papers.

Here are some examples from 1930s Big Yank ads (Big Yank most famously used this pocket combo):
