Might be too complicated, and I'm not the man to organise such things, but at least I've put it out there.

For English thrifters, the concept is based on a classic episode of Lovejoy, though that involved antiques obviously. It's early and I'm on the internet talking about Lovejoy. This is weird.

HAHA This is the first thing I saw and my OCD kicked in. Even if I have already read a message through my email, I will still go into eBay messages and at least click on it so the unread message count is not there.

Didn't see much on Google, but does anyone know what the difference is between Allsaints and Allsaints Spitalsfield?

The One Red Paperclip story seems appropriate to insert here, for the younger readers of this forum.

 

Edit: Reminder to self: always read ahead before posting. @TheNeedMachine was in before me with the reference.

post #31902 of 54302

been keeping my eyes peeled for old duck hunter, tiger stripe camo...

pretty sure this is some of the good stuff:

 

no tags, no labels, not exactly crude but it looks like this has been made with a domestic sewing machine.

also nice to see some of the pressed creases are still there. clean but worn and faded.

 

Warning: deeetz (Click to show)

   

 

the camopedia example on the right is a variant of the early "advisor" pattern, you can clearly see mirrored elements.

 

stitching and also the color of the garment-dyed light tan base.

 

zipper is US-made and completely busted, not familiar with the brand, stamped "MARK"

 

mismatched buttons, webbing adjusters and hardware, the belt loops are not bar tacked, i think hand stitched...

Nat, any knowledge always appreciated.

It's the same company.

I figured as much. I guess I should have asked the question more clearly, is Allsaints Spitalsfield diffusion? Or if not, why do they have different tags? TIA!

As far as I know, there is no diffusion line. Not sure what's up with the different tags though. I used to check out the old store on Michigan Ave before it shuttered. Seemed really overpriced for Chinese made stuff. Probably why they didn't last at that location.
