That's very cool. I don't know if it would break Ebay policies or not, but would you share the buyer's Ebay ID here? It might be handy to have - we come across cool vintage BB stuff from time to time (my 1943 Army officer's coat, Cap's red riding jacket, etc.) and it might be worth contacting them up front to see if they're interested in purchasing.

Forgot if I ever posted this here. Dusting it off to sell because I'm past the point of convincing myself I can squeeze into it.

 

It's not amazing, but it is 60 years old and pretty cool.

I picked up a mega-haul of razor sharp and super-slim 60's MTM suits. Plaids and solids, mind-blowing size 34 Short! Pics to follow. biggrin.gif

Could be describing me.

I've been casually browsing for a chest/trunk just because I think it would be cool to have one. I saw this listed at $99. It looked to be in fine condition, but I didn't examine the inside.  (For all I know, this could have been made yesterday.)

 

 

I also saw this, which I thought was cool. The guy said it's probably from the '40s. 

 

The name plates denote places for collars, "pyjamas," etc. The knob on the glass door looked to be MOP.

Please PM me too if you feel like sharing.

Just arrived in - ebay brag - this thing is INCREDIBLE. Silk Velvet, 1935 savile row. I cant even tell you how good this smells.

Definitely wouldn't feel comfortable sharing that info on a public forum regardless of eBay policy. I was planning on contacting the buyer once the package arrives; I'll see if they want their ID shared members of the forum privately.

The union tag on this cashmere overcoat dates in between 1949 and 1962.  I suspect it's spent a lot of it's life in a closet somewhere.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I particularly wanted to post regarding the pick stitching.  It's gorgeous, and throughout the coat.  I was not at my best with the camera for these shots, you'll have to look close to see it.  But wow!

Vintage, vintage or just "vintage?"

Cross post from thrift thread.


Varsity/team cardigan. Date on the crest? 61/62 season.




1960s Western ranch jacket. If this isn't deadstock it's just been hanging in someone's closet for almost 50 years. Tons of detailing: western peaked yokes (front and back), iridescent fabric, acrylic fur and collar lining, corduroy lining in the pockets, great vintage buttons, and rawhide cord on the split sides.

I'm gonna guess '50s, based on the label/font style and the fact that terylene (the first polyester fiber) was introduced in 1948 and superseded by Dacron for most clothing in the mid-50s.

These are both so cool, I'd wear both of them in a heartbeat. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

A friend of mine sent these to me and I thought they were just spectacular. Vintage Swiss and German, from probably the 60s. Made mostly by Krier. All in great, super thin cotton voile and hand rolled edges on them all.

They dont make them like this anymore.
