I don't have sewing thread specifications for the jacket, so I'm left guessing or matching the size of the thread it used. My best guess is cotton 40/3 thread. I have old thread that was removed from the jacket that I can use as a reference. A second part of my request is regarding sourcing and using original period thread. I'm watching Ebay, but someone he
