If I were hoping to reach out to Zuckerberg, I would try Facebook before Twitter.

Some repeats, some new....

 

Still bummed I did not get to wear this first one to the Christmas party this year (55 degrees). Christmas really needs to be in February.

 

Repeat - Mighty Mac FU Peacoat

 

 

 

 

 

 

FU Ranch Blanket Coat

 

 

 

 

Unbranded (De-branded) Flight Jacket, Scovill snaps and Ideal Zips

 

 

 

 

 

I always pass on HD stuff because with the excess of bikers around here, it is always marked way up. But a leather and wool double rider, thats different....and for $13, I sprung for it.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Peacoat

 

 

 

 

Nuther Peacoat

 

 

Repeat - Silver Persian Lamb Coat....I friggin love this thing.

Really funny that Kos popped up when it did.

Everyone should watch the Grammys tonight and keep an eye out for this guy, Michael League, the bandleader of Snarky Puppy. I was at a show last year after their first Grammy nomination (which they won) and he said it was his first time ever having to buy a suit and he never to have to do that again. So after they were nominated this year, I reached out and offered to design him one. And here we are.

I've never seen a tweed like the blue brooks brothers- and it feels like silk.
Big E Levi's is NA
Croc wallets are completely 70 year plus dead stock. I unwrapped them from their Christmas boxes from the 50s.
Cape is insane. Probably 1910s, silk lined and hand bouillon embroidered.







 

Oh shit.  Those Croc wallets.  Amazing!

Been MIA for the past several days. Been out of town without internet access. One of the things I had to do was arrange to have these shipped back home to Minnesota. Not thrifted, but can't beat free (well, for the cost of shipping home).






@330CK, congrats! Wow! That's a killer jacket, too.

Question: 

 

Is Oxxford Cashmere always labeled/tagged as Cashmere.   I have an Oxxford SC that could be Camelhair or Cashmere.  But, I also have an Oxxford Cashmere coat that feels similar and it is labeled as Cashmere.  In fact, every cashmere Oxxford I have found has been labeled that way.  So, I think I may have answered my own question.

Another Question

 

This is a brag and its also a quandary. 

 

I can't figure out what to do with Oxxford Cashmere coat

 

 

Its not my size so the obvious thing to do is sell this bad boy and sell it fast! But, here is the problem: 

 

Two very small nibbles.  They are not holes.  AND they look worse in the pics than in person. 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

 

 

I don't think this can be repaired with reweaving. 

 

The quandary is spend the money to repair it (if it can be repaired) or sell it like it is?  

 

Obviously these coats sell for big money, so I don't want to give it away for cheap.  But, how bad is it with the small half nibbles.

Nice! I was checking that style out last week and wondering who buys the really wild patterns... wink.gif

In other news, that's not the "best" brand I've found today. It's been a while...
