Look at the hand work on the vintage Brooks suit!
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.

 

 

If anybody wants me, I'll just be over against a wall, drooling on myself.

You have a lot in common with my teething 8 month old. :rotflmao:

Thanks Turkey Sammie for the tip on these boots. Sadly a touch big for me. Still, the best vintage pick up I've had in awhile. The only hit I got on Milwaukee king was some kind of census from 1907 but I think these are a bit younger than that.

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.

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?

Send the scarf to Rave Fabricare. Or repurpose it as a lining or something.

A heartfelt thanks to the folks of this thread, especially Brianpore. Several years ago, I went through a rough patch personally and financially. When it seemed I was out of options, I discovered thrifting and subsequently, this thread.  I learned  a lot by lurking and just reading the original thread.  Re-selling stuff, some through Brianpore, helped me make ends meet.  I haven’t posted here in a while, but continue to sell and lurk every now and again. Decided this year to step it up a little as I need to pay for kid’s college.  Anyway, thought I would start poasting more of my finds.  Here are things from the last couple of weekends.

 

Patagonia Better Sweater

 

Sawyer of Napa Shearling

 

 

Edward Green

 

 

Older EZ cashmere lined-leather coat

 

 

Couple of RLBL Striped suits

 

 

 

Crockett and Jones loafers

 

 

Trailwise Berkeley puffer

 

 

Class - 5 puffer

 

 

Anyone recognize this maker?  It's on an awesome reversible trench.  Couldn't find anything on Google.

Some vintage stuff.the Birks is like our Tiffanys.vintage mother or pearl set.i think thats my sixth burberry in three months.
Also some minty shearling gloves for myself for.4.99





 

Nice Pipes.  I never find pipes at Thrift Stores.  Sometimes I find them at estate sales, but they are usually crappy brands.  I used to smoke a pipe regularly (Tobacco please) and got into it quite a bit.  It is the one thing I have allowed myself to collect (other than too many shoes).   

 

Pipes are really cool and there is a large market of buyers for really top quality pipes.  One of these days I might actually do something with mine.  Now they just sit on a shelf and maybe once a year I'll take one down and have a smoke.  

 

The Peterson is a good pipe and the GBD looks like nice briar.  

 

My collection is about half Meerschaum and half briar.

Couple things from today. All available except the OCBD, at least for now.

Wimmenz belt by Marni, NWT. Sz. 30. Don't know much about this, but seems like good stuff. Made in Italy, retail seems highish.



Zegnatex flat front desert/wheat narrow wale cords. 36 x 30.


Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Pop! Forest green Brioni Sport narrow wale cords. 34 x 32.75. Nice cuff too.



And my favorite, a dead stock Brooks Brothers OCBD in my size. Unlined collar, cuffs, etc. Great collar roll too. Any BB fans help dating this? I've spoilered a couple pics of the label and a stamp near the hemline.
