B&L Ray Bans made in USA (no model number anywhere, why? Anyone?). Some corrosion on the frame and while cleaning the lenses, the "ban" came off so I've got a used pair of Rays, still cool though for $1. (pissed I f****d the branding up) 














I feel your pain. It's gotten so bad around here, and the thrift stores knowing and hoarding every men's label from Eton to Patrick Ervell doesn't help either.

Those RB's are vintage so there is no model #. 1960's or prior. Could be WWII-era aviators. Either way, I think you're looking at good $$ with those original lenses.

Seriously? This is amazing. Now I only wish I hadn't fudged the Ban part up. Thanks man, great info!

That initial feeling when reading your response is what thrifting is all about. Possibly WWII era?! Anyway to narrow it down?

Did some investigating and Miller Brothers is a local Atlanta menswear shop that has a pretty good reputation.  Called and asked about their private label.  The rep said their Made in Italy stuff is either Castangia or Tombolini but neither of those tags seem to line up.  Either way, its' not often you thrift a suit of this quality that doesn't need alterations (pants need to be hemmed) and has surgeon cuffs so I'm fairly happy.  Hopefully I didn't miss out on this donor's other items earlier in the day.....

 

Jacket is not dirty, mirror is dirty lol

I see Miller Bros non-stop, and they have some very high quality OTR and MTM stuff, but since I'm more a reseller I never grab it...it's not well known outside of the Atlanta area. Same for Edgar Pomeroy - dude made some insanely intricate hand-made suits but no one seems to care, so I leave them now.

Do you know who made the Canadian stuff? It's usually Samuelsohn, Coppley, or Jack Victor making for others here.

I did watch a fairly interesting documentary about menswear made in America on Netflix



it featured a bunch of great companies such as Oxxford, Tellason, and Oak Street Bootmakers.

Not sure for this store specifically but those are the usual suspects.  There's another local men's store here (and recent SF partner) H Stockton whose private label Canada suits and sport coats are Samuelsohn.  I think Jack Victor makes Brooks Brothers' Canada stuff.

This tag looks like Redaelli/Gruppo CFG to anyone? (maybe other?):paranoia:

The fading lines are green if anything...

WWII era would not say ray ban on the lenses. There is a vintage ray ban thread in the ol SF
