I nearly bought a pair of Oliver Peoples from this guy but concluded that he was a bit odd and didn't go ahead. Later I received an email from to the effect that he was trying to prove to his bank that he could achieve some record or other in internet sales and offering a discount on items purchased in that month. Needless to say I didn't go ahead.
Thanks to both Vox and George for taking to time to reply. I was not aware of Filson bags but they are interesting and mentioned in another recent thread. Ettinger bag I will check out this week. Thanks again
This thread is fascinating. It gives me a chance to completely ignore any post containing a tailoring diagram.
I thought about posting a picture of an A and S jacket from 1990 which is in a similar material - but then I thought - nah. Nobody likes to see an old man cry.
