One such "defunct" label is Abercrombie & Fitch. Â Doing a well worded search on Ebay can yield a treasure trove of nifty vintage A&F items -- from horn bottle openers, to silverwear, to framed pictures, to beautiful leather hunting and other cases; to tackle boxes; to leather wrapped flasks; to all kinds of very cool vintage clothes. Â Lots of it from the 1920-1960s period.
I saw a very very very cool Heuer watch from the 1960s on ebay. The dial was very unique, and I'm pretty sure it was a chronograph model, as it was a sailing watch. The description stated that this particular model was only available in A&F stores. I also saw a vintage safari-style jacket that was quite nice. I'm willing to bet that 99.9% of current A&F customers have no idea of the history of the store they shop at. They just think the '1893' logo is some gimick, rather than the actual date that the company was started.
