Is this anything?

Made in USA and seemingly good and "older" construction. But modern tags I think, idk.

Free-ish in bundle from estate sale.

I've never encountered this Down filled puffer jacket. Am I on the right track? Thanks

1970s vintage if I recall my EMS labels correctly. How's the condition?

^ not a thing (that I'm aware of)

Have any of you guys ever been in a store and just knew that no #menswear flipper had ever been in there before, like, ever? Happened to me today. Nothing too extraordinary but it was like opening a sealed vault. I just knew that nobody ever walked in there looking to flip mens.

Condition was 8/10. I see some things hovering around 70, but I'm not sure if I'm using the right keywords.

Been very slow here for the past month or so but I wanted to share an ethrift I Just got.
A little history been wanting a cuci piece for a while. Did some research and decided to go with a cashmere sweater. Then had a great few months selling with SPOO so I decided to go for the signature piece.
Well, I can tell you This thing is fucking amazing.


The thickest, softest cashmere I have ever felt.
How thick?

Over 2 pounds of the softest cashmere.

I had to pay up for this and it hurt but this is billionaire type clothing. I highly recommend picking one up if you have the means.

Got these with other fodder and personal kitchen stuff today. 1980's octagon shaped tortoise shells? Might be too groovy for personal use.

Ah yeah, I figured something like that they would have done their homework on. If they had one or two priced high, the rest were probably high as well.

+1 on what Fueco said. 70's vintage. In a couple months, that will do pretty well. Condition is everything though. Make sure there are no repairs, holes or heavy wear. Size is a factor too with vintage outdoor stuff. Sizes M-XL do better than XS and S.

They changed to this label in the early 80's.

I took a nice HF suit out of GW for $15 today, summer weight Super 130s, but what surprised me was when I first tried it on, then measured it out.

 

The coat fit me like a glove, with a P2P chest measurement of 42" and a coat waist of 40".  The trouser inseam works fine for me as well at 30".

 

But the pant waist?  31"!  That's an 11" drop.

 

I'm a 32" waist, 40" chest physically, so I think there's enough fabric to get another inch in the waist, but golly.  Who owned this thing before, I wonder - some Olympic gymnast?
