My "gnarly" black Chucks I just found this week. Were in good shape but disinfected and cleaned the heckler outta them. Painted gray. Painted white at 5am when I came in from a night on the town. Finished pics in a coupla days in the diy thread.

From what I understand it's an obscure Japanese brand of heritage Americana wear made by the people who produce Free and Easy magazine. Silverwarebandit? Leftofthedial?

Yup.

Correct. They are one of a number of Japanese companies that specialize in reproductions or / inspirations from a combination of old American workwear and Ivy styles, although Rugged Museum also has a dash of British style to it.

 

Their website is here: http://rugged.jp/ They have an online summer sale going on now, if you can get someone to proxy for you. You have to watch out for the sizes though. They don't make for the western physique...

 

I love their shop in Jingumae, Tokyo, which also has an extensive second-hand section with lots of Nigel Cabourn, Ralph Lauren, Gitman, Engineered Garments and other more obscure vintage and Japanese brands, and I'll be popping in when I am back in Tokyo in two weeks' time...

Happy Fourth, thrift brethren. This is not today, but it is A) thrifted and b) very similar to what I'm waring today.

J crew sc, thrifted by me.
Tom lewin linen shirt, thrifted by
Left Field jawnz, thrifted by me.
Belt and shoes bought from Spoo.
Square from Gilt.
Car is part of a "dram car tour," which was a gift from Mrs. GMMcL earlier this year. This was the 451 Italia. We also drove a McLaren, a Lambo, Two Mazerattis and a Porsche.

This used to be the logo embossed onto Gokey bags. They used this when Gokey was still an independent manufacture and was based in St. Paul, Minn. I had some old Battenkill duffle bags from the late 70's-80's that had this logo embossed onto the front side. It featured a hunter with a shot-gun walking through the field. Kind of hard to make out from the photo, but you get the idea. Not sure if they still use this or not. They could have recently revived the logo as a throw-back sort of thing, so if it's an older bag, I'm not entirely sure how you would tell it apart from a regular Orvis Battenkill.

On closer inspection I can only find one Gokey made Orvis bag in their current lineup. 

 

The rest of the appealing Orvis luggage is from the Battenkill line. The bag that eazye posted is probably not Gokey (which does not mean at all that it's not a nice bag!).

Yup, no logo like that.
