Probably 50's, but that's just a guess. Cool find!

On the subject of vintage, I got this in the mail while I was out of town. Paid up a bit for it, but I think I got it for a steal. Especially considering how hard it is to find vintage leather jackets from this era in my size (42-44). A vintage shawl collar leather barnstormer has been on my "Want" list for a long time. The fact that it's a Sears' Hercules label is just icing on the cake. I'm thinking 1930's. Has the original belt. Perfect amount of patina. Sheepskin lining and collar are in fantastic shape.

My question for you all; is there a way to tell if this is horsehide?

@aging in rhythm nice to meet you too. I had a special dream about that Patek Philippe that was priced at 72k.  


Pendleton Blackwatch.



Nom de guerre, NA unless really want




Had to convince cashier that previous pants weren't matched to this jacket. Unstructured, coarse, 3 roll 2. Not sure about this one.



EG short sleeve work shirt



Vermont's finest, 1985



Gitman Vintage, hard to get color right on this one






Just trollin



Not an LA thing, and how about that hole in the back that I missed? Any chance of fixing that?

Never thought I'd make it to 100 posts. Feels Thriftsmassy. Lots of smart people exchanging information here, keeps me coming back.

Nat, that jacket is sick. I've wanted a barnstormer for quite a while too and I think your post just pushed me over the edge.

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. 

as you point out the weave is perfectly fine, so reweaving is moot. the issue is the nap.


i've thought about this question a little... what they originally do is weave the fabric and then by way of finishing they raise the nap and sometimes clip the pile even (i assume there are different ways to do this but brushing is the first to come to mind). i've wondered if it's not possible to either harvest some fibers from an inconspicuous part of the coat and then spot felt and clip to match the original nap, or simply spot brush it to raise a new nap off of the original weave. frankly i haven't tried either and i haven't researched whether anyone offers a service for this. 


personally i'd leave as is on something like that. good luck.

Shoe time. Church's. Took me awhile to nail it down as all lettering was almost completely worn out. With a magnifying glass, I thought I made out "h's". A little research and then an eBay exact match, I knew what they were. I don't read Church's, so not sure what hand written info means. I know someone (??? CapnWes???) posted a guide to identifying shoes, but could not find it. Anyways, I look forward to posting the After pics sometime soon, they need some TLC.

@Bon Vivant Life re: those Church's, looks to me like it says 110D (then something else) meaning, I think, 11D (uk). 115D would be 11.5D.

Model is the last line, i.e. "Chetwynd", but that's particularly bad writing. Nice shoe though, I look forward to seeing how they come out.

A timely reminder for y'all...

And does anyone know what the pattern is?

post #29983 of 60469
@Fueco that's the island of Nantucket. Pretty desirable pattern around these parts!

WOW! Thrift Synergy.  Just like mine except mine is a 42.  Same label. 


Can anyone identify the buttons on the one I have? 


They have to be some sort of natural material?  Are these horn that has been left with a textured surface rather than polished?
