Seems like the stains will come out! Another day another down jacket. +J wool down blazer
Okay, so I spent a little time online and discovered the Jil Sander + Uniqlo, J+ offerings. Seems to be a nice collaboration. But that puffer blazer is certainly an original style that I have not seen before. I am not yet sure if I like it or not. I certainly find it interesting to see something new and different. Really, I guess what I llike least about it is the pockets are not functional to me as a jacket. As a sportscoat I like the look of the pockets for the balance of the jacket and to be used for something other than your hands (I know many disagree with even openign the pockets in the first place.) On a jacket or coat however, I like for my pockets to be accessible to my hands if I am not wearing gloves for whatever reason. Unfortunately, this is a problem I have with many jackets and coats that do not have side slit pockets. Probably the only thing I don't like about most bombers.
Anyway, thanks for sharing that. One more piece of knowledge that may just come in handy when thrifting someday.
Posted in another thread also as looking for more info on my recent finds. Scored 2 pairs of McHale Shoes and pair of Florsheim Imperials, non of which have been worn by the looks of them. The top shoes are just too narrow for my feet, but pretty sure I'll be wearing the other 2. :) May need to get rubber heels on before I slip and fall on my arse.
I have searched threads here and elsewhere on the McHale's. If anyone has any info on dating these it would be appreciated.
First pair of McHale's
Pair 2 of McHale's - these things are tanks.
Florsheim's - Inoted these don't have the "woodgrain" pattern on the sole like some other vintage Florsheim's I've seen. Maybe they aren't that old.
Yep... I have a pair of 7.5 D with the 5-nail v-cleat soles that two guys from Japan are locked in a bidding war over. They are not in great shape but they pushed the bidding over $100 in the first few hours of the auction. lol
