Nice! Sorry, I can't be much help, vintage denim is not my area of expertise. I do know that union tag was used for like 80 years, so it's not much help in dating things.
Nice! 1940s. Deadstock? Looks close to it, anyway. Might get a couple bills out of that.
Whoa, awesome! Very likely silk plush, not beaver. Most toppers from about 1880 to the mid-20th c. were silk.What size is it?There are a few British shops that specialize in refurbing old silk toppers. Would probably cost a bit, but it'd be worth it.
Edumacate me...what's the significance of train tracks and roping?
So, apparently Paypal and Ebay have decided to quit working with my label printer. Anyone else using the Dymo 450 with the 2.5x7" labels and having trouble? Even though I have it selected in the settings, it won't load the Java applet and formats the label in the regular inkjet size. @Brianpore didn't you start using a label printer recently?
How difficult is it to get set up to sell on Rakuten?
Rakuten customers don't know Ebay exists? The number of people here who regularly ship stuff to Japan would seem to indicate otherwise.
There's been a run of them because they aren't really all that rare, especially not coats that are missing their trousers. Formalwear is by far the most common vintage stuff to be found, because it was worn a lot less often than day suits. That goes double for tailcoats, for which there was even less demand by the '30s and later.I would think the $50 that mormonopoly mentioned is close to the ceiling, especially if it's smaller than about 40R. If it had pants, you might...
I was afraid of that. They're raw, unsanforized and haven't been washed yet. I've seen so much conflicting info on these. Some say size up, some say they're vanity sized and/or will stretch back out to tagged size after soaking. :-/
I am a longtime CM guy who has been wanting to get some decent jeans, and just picked up these LVC 1954s on Ebay last week. My first pair of raws ever. These 34x34s are snug in the waist and hips, borderline uncomfortable but stretching out a bit after wearing for a few hours. Any comments on fit here? Should I go/have gone up to a 36? Sorry for the bad photos.
