Have decided to let this table go since I use my Thorens 100% of the time. Offering it here first. PM for more pics and details. Please no trades.

If it is was 5 zip leather jacket then fly and get it or proxy for me.

Looks like it's to take bearings and azimuths. I'm more of an engine room than deck watch guy but there's something sextant-like about it that makes me think you could maybe use it for celestial navigation too.

Shit.

 

I can't go get the MMM jacket, it's too far away. Definitely not local...

In NYC today. 48 minty charvet ties. A bit pricey @ $14 each after negotiations.... But impossible to pass up.








Sorry N/A. Kept two and the rest going to @Brianpore.

May have made a great find in the art department today, unless someone here has a background in art I'll be waiting until I've seen an appraiser to post.

This is fake, right? With the linguistic mix and match of "ITALY STILE" I am 99% certain but I wanted to make absolutely sure before I post it to the bad fakes thread.

OK I did some more research and Reportage Giorgio Armani apparently isn't even a real Armani line- it's just a common type of fake Armani product. None of the ones I was able to find on Google image search had this particular butchery on the tag, so I'm now thinking this is a fake of a fake. I'll definitely post it to the fakes thread.

haha, yeah. i saw you do that. thought it gave a way better perspective on the things that come in here. came back to thrifting to fund myself a new camera, actually! getting colors to be passable on a 4S is beyond annoying. still a pretty incredible camera for being so old and new.

where do you guys find the information regarding the names of different weaves/knits, patterns, styles? how do you guys know what suits or shoes were made for company x by company y? i'm having trouble finding this kind of information myself. i would love to learn!

hard to find info... maybe 50s (?) coveralls. natural HBT! i won't say deadstock but for the lack of tags.

 

my dowsing rod always knows.

hot tip: if you find workwear say pre-70s, sniff around for "show-me" selvedge. it's not always in the outseam.

 

donuts (no tarnish whatsoever which is passing strange). a little research indicates KWB Mfg became Calco in the early 30s, so it's possible this is older than i think. but they're coveralls, so it don't really matter all that much... 

 

also this.
