Yep, I had a NOS MG for BB Blazer that didn't have the front button holes cut in (but had the 2 buttons in a pocket) nor the sleeve buttons. I sent them a picture and they sent 8 sleeve buttons.

 

Had another one missing a sleeve button. Went by and they had about a dozen they keep in a drawer and gave me the one I needed.

Had some good times yesterday, we met up and I thought it was a good sign there was something for everyone at the first stop.



Pop on skull, 5010XX N/A



Another big pop, I overlooked this but Nataku was nice enough to let me have it NA

If I'm shopping for some quality flannel shirts on the eBay, what are the makers I should be looking for?

Thanks for any tips

Can you explain the difference? I must be missing something obvious.

That's not a "scrap"... That's an entrée.

Who drew Spoo for Thriftmas?? Did not kop. I'm sure he already has one.

 

 

My wife was organizing the coats and jackets and complaining that I had about 5x the number of any other member of our family. She may be on to something...

There's no difference in these two. I believe these were released the year they went to the coral as the logo and we're a limited supply. They remade it 7 years later and the shoulder will say 57th and the coral sits at a slant and not straight up and down. I also believe they made a green and blue one that says 53 with a smaller coral but I've never found or seen one for sale. If anybody does come across one in a small Ide give them a shiny nickel for it. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Sugar cane, flat head, samurai, studio d'artisan, schott made in Japan, you know, the usual suspects. All the japanese makers made flannels at one point or another.

Burberry silver button patch pocket blazer. Some ass cut the chest label out but it still has the collar, logo lined and logo silver buttons.

Dunhill made in Italy blazer with logo buttons

Alfred Bryant camel hair jacket

Vineyard vines xl, New England xxl with tag, and gitman brothers xl

Vineyard vines xxl 1/4 zip sweaters

Burberry cable knit v neck sweater with tag

Ties. Turnbull & asser, Charvet, Scottish wool, and a bunch of polos

Foxford, foxford, Begg of ayr lambswool scarfs

Gianni versace tie. Pretty sure it's real but I'm not an expert


A decent haul. I hate Chicago less now. Great food and decent thrift.
