First up, grabbed this sweet Lodenfrey duffel coat in my size. The thing is mint except the leather pieces next to the toggles need to be replaced, shouldn't be to much at the tailors. Still has the hood too!
A pair of vintage Florsheim v-cleat, longwing gunboats in 10.5B (my size) so N/A, I stopped counting at 70 nails.
And this sweet tide gauge!
My buddy however, won for the day I think. He grabbed a really nice vintage Indian bleeding madras short sleeved shirt, a vintage made in the USA Pendleton buffalo plaid shirt jacket and the find of the day, a vintage Woolrich Navaho print belted jacket, all for himself, in his size. I wish I had pics of that Woolrich, the thing is RAW!
I picked up a Burberry tie today and was curious if it is a fake, or if the tag that they used just changed over time (Burberrys to Burberry). I poked around online for a bit but wasn't able to find much.
I like the colors, but don't know about the pattern. What do you guys think?
I'd rock the hell out of that.
I think they are the Sherwood model Ranch Oxford whole cuts, but I could be wrong. The toes boxes have a pretty cool patina.
I haven't decided what I am going to do with them yet, but in the meantime I think I will wear them a few times. They seem to be about a size 10.5ish.

No, she loves it actually. Theres an album in iPhoto of her doing the same. We have to take her pictures each morning too, most days. She's so cute.
I did not recognize this label but was curious as to its authenticity. After some research on the Fashion Guild web site I found out that its a real old label. Any thoughts Mr.Spoo ?
1987-1988, ebay bucks = 10
Mentioned this find yesterday... Nothing special compared to the recent cashmere/wool duffel finds, but still. I see this guy hanging and I'm thinking that's a pretty sweet collar, whats with all of these weird buttons? I start looking for a tag and I can't find one...Ooohh (Click to show)
Back is actually clean, that's just dust inside my point n shoot's lens
Robots in disguise!
Love the button hole stitches. Hey wait there's more pockets, I should look inside...
As you've probably guessed by now.
So it's not incredible, but the reason I picked it up was because the wool on this thing is cleeeeean. No moth buffet here. First Pendleton anything that I've found in this condition. Bought more cedar goodies on the way home just to keep bugaboos at bay, and I'll be getting her green cleaned just to be safe/to remove a little grime on the tan side that should come off no sweat.
Available? I suppose for the right trade, but at the same time I'm thinking especially in this size it might be good fodder for the 'bay right?
I'm puzzling through how to operationalize this. The dead guy put his own obituary in his suit pocket?
