OK, thanks to you both.  Just frustrated - trying to contribute and getting grief in return.  I have my own host; will try again tomorrow.

PSA:  Mainy just listed a ton of my backlogged items.

 

And by a ton, I mean like 100 items, mostly at 99 cent auctions, or reasonably BINs

OH MY GOD another "since you are new" after a couple plain text-only posts are lost.  Really, I would have liked to be part of the community and conversations but something somewhere doesn't want me to.

Dude, it happened to me too, I think you need to have a certain number of posts before it stops doing that. I could be wrong though, and yes it's frustrating.

Eton shirts are regarded as high quality shirts here in Sweden, but they aren't really comparable to real quality shirts. I would agree with that Eton shirts are on the same quality level as Brooks Brothers (Eton shirts are just slightly better), haven't handled much Brooks Brothers though.

I actually did not know that... I sometimes pick up the older made in USA Saks stuff if it fits, as it's usually fully-canvassed and pretty decent quality. I guess I'll have to pay closer attention to these coats. I've left behind some coats I shouldn't have then...

As in the "type-of-item-I'm-always-looking-for-and-never-find" category, I spotted in one of our better vintage stores a men's fedora with the full "Lock & Co." logo inside. It was just with many American-made hats and priced similarly - $20. I haven't purchased it yet so - no photo. But I can say it is a fairly simple fedora - doesn't seem as complexly made as my Borsalino fedora, for example - with a dark gray, lightweight-velour fabric, and minimal brim. Reminds me of late '60s - '70s, maybe? Fairly thin black band. Looks totally authentic, anyway - just like the florid branding I always see with Lock hats, with the Jermyn Street addess and curlicues. Actually, are they on both St. James's and Jermyn? As I sometimes do, I'm so stunned to see something I actually pointed out to the owner how low the price is for a hat from such an illustrious establishment.

Now, a few questions: Condition seems excellent, without my studying every detail (yet). There was a (cardboard?) label inside the interior rim that had numbers, including a "4/81"; could that be the date of manufacture? Second - hat had "57" size as well as "7." Normally I wear at least a 7 1/8, and used to have a Borsalino flat cap labeled 57 that was plenty roomy. Is the "7" a mislabel and it's larger? I'm wondering if the hat was made to be sold in the U.S. The lady showed me several other hats that came from the same house - they were American and at least one had a local store name in it. I certainly wouldn't call the hat "roomy" but I think it probably fits well enough.

Since the hat has such a shallow brim, not exactly "classic" though a lot like the hats many young guys seem to be buying today, if I get it I might wear it as sort of a funky thing - not as a "serious" fedora (sort of like a baseball cap). Can't say yet. Maybe some of you guys are in the UK and see these hats a lot but for me, in my Midwestern cityl, its a very special thing to come across one fo these. Anyway, the usual big question: what do think of the price? Isn't this a steal? Thanks!happy.gif
