Particularly nothing about this tie, but I dont see them often... if you do, then maybe its just geographic location. smile.gif

^^ that Chipp is gorgeous. The Mongolian cashmere thing reads very 60s to me, though I have nothing to substantiate that.

They are incredible. Even better than that is the smell. They smell so damn good. How weird is that, talking about the smell of used mens shoes. LOL. But the leather, the oil, the age, its just a really great box to open up. How old exactly I dont know, but Im guessing late 70s?

They do not have a WebSite. Winston Tailors does Bespoke
and MTM clothing in the Ivy Trad style. I have several of their sportcoats
and a suit which no longer fit.

I just posted some of these in the "leather jacket thread" and got made fun of by some jerk. Searched for "vintage" and found this thread- so I think these may belong here, if anyone would care.

 

This jacket was made in the 60's. I'm not sure by who, but it has a Talon zip, and weighs a TON. An old biker I know said it's probably horse hide. The jacket belonged to my father, who passed away when I was a kid. Now that I am all grown up and ride a motorbike, I wear it.

 

 

 

This one is a Vietnam war era G1 flight jacket that I found in an antique mall. Someone had replaced the cotton cuffs and waist with leather, and then they dyed the brown jacket black. These modifications led to a very low price, but since I wanted this for riding, I was stoked on the mods. 

 

 

This is a vintage Arrow loop neck shirt. From what I know, the loop on the collar, for the top button, indicates late 1960's, as the 1970's models had a standard hole for the top button... Please be gentle in correcting me if I'm wrong

 

 

And since I'm on the topic of vintage stuff, these are a pair of Corcoran jump boots, made during WW2... A guy at a swap meet was selling them for $90, but he'd only take cash... missing out them has haunted me ever since...

Not to start up again on a side-tracked discussion, but a couple of weeks ago I went to the Impressionism, Fashion, and Modernity exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC and it was interesting on multiple levels.  Paintings side-by-side with actual antique garments, shoes, and accessories portrayed.  Very cool.  Women's and men's, though more women's than men's.  Amongst other things, all of the shoes were damn narrow!  I always thought the paintings and drawings from the 1800's and early 20th century had shoes that were exaggerated in length for artistic purposes, an affectation.  The shoes looked like they were AAAA, I kid you not!  At any rate, very much worth it for those interested in seriously vintage fashion.  (Disclaimer: not at all affiliated)

Nice jackets! Any labeling on the first one?

Loop collar shirts have been around since the 50's and faded away for the most part in the late 60's early 70's with the long pointed collars. Still show up today on what they call "camp shirts" and retro pieces. Easiest way to date is usually by the label, especially if it's a store brand.

And dont worry too much about the boots...definitely not WW2 but fairly recent issue, and still can find at surplus stores in the $150 range.

Being in the resale business I come across alot of cool items with amazing stories but personally I'm always a sucker for glasses. I've been practically blind since a kid and was never able to afford but 1 pair that insurance covered each year, and just hated that! Now that I'm older i switch between about 3-4 vintage/non vintage frames. And these are some other favorites that I'm currently selling because I cant keep them all. My favorite part about them is that they are all MADE IN USA!
