Awesome find! Looks to be dated 1958, which makes it an early MA-1. Love the early Air Forces stencil as well.

Nice! When it Reyns, it pours!

That patchwork looking Reyn is pretty baller.

This must have been a true honey hole because I can't think of any stores in the area that closed recently. Unless I'm going to be sorely disappointed the next time I do a multi-store run. On the plus side, the good stuff has to go somewhere. It doesn't just disappear. Just means that a different store will (hopefully) get better stuff.

From the little bit I was told about the piece I have, it's in-house and the bespoke service starts somewhere around $5000. No idea about MTM stuff though.

Two very nice finds today. Sorry that the color is all off on these.

 

Filson cotton flannel guide shirt. Made in Morocco, so a recent mfg. Also missing almost all its buttons down the front (why?!!)..

 

 

 

Willis & Geiger navy wool duffle coat with cotton flannel lining. No hood. Brass zipper is missing 2 teeth at the bottom, but I can fix that.

I have a mainline LP sport coat that finally sold for $14.95 after putting it up with no bids a few times. Sure it has a tiny hole, but $14.95...come on. I will post it as my brag of the day

What I like to do is get a horsehair brush, lukewarm water, a bowl, and some Dawn (the shit they use to get oil off ducks and shit), and scrub. Especially for the canvas based shoes like these. If the stains are stubborn do what Letric states below.

This is pretty successful as well

If that's legit, the guys name should be stencilled on the inside. And very hard to see.

I'll look in there for it, any particular area?
