Shout out to Typhoid Jones for hooking me up with some sweet MOP buttons! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Florsheim Burgundy Ankle Boots 8.5D, if anyone is interested, they are cheap.  I picked them up for a quarter at a charity garage sale at my wife's work, anything i get above a quarter, will be donated back to the Alzheimers Association.

 

They cleaned up nice, sole is worn but still has some life in it.

Well, I didn't find any Breitling's for ten bucks...nor a whole lot else for that matter (normal stuff - PRL, Robt Graham etc).  Though a few things might be worth sharing, and I do have a few questions on two things if anyone can favor me with some knowledge.

 

This vintage Brooks Brothers 3/2 roll coat:

...has only these 3 tags:

...and is lined as such:

Questions:

- What would you guess the coat is made of, given the care instructions?  There is no content tag.

- The smallest tag reads "Brooks Brothers" and has a sideways number "37" in blue ink, almost faded.  Could this be a size 37??  I wear a 42 most of the time, and once I hunch up I can get into it and while it's too small it's not so small to make me think it's really a 37...

- With it half-lined on the back, and fully lined inside the fronts...is that 3/4 lined?  Or just "half-lined" referring to the back?

 

One other with a question - this Barneys New York shirt:

...has this tag on the end of the placket:

...only GB that comes to mind is Gitman Brothers - did they do shirts for Barneys?

 

Some more of what I grabbed today:

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

Bottega Veneta tie.

 

Entourage season 1, two-DVD set, only a few fingerprints, and only $2.92 at GW.

 

This hand-painted plate...because I collect oddball stuff like this for my Gallery Of Questionable Art.

 

Barbour "The Simple Shirt."

 

Peter Millar pink short sleeve, for next year.

 

Brooks Brothers Special Order - never seen this tag before.

 

T&A tie.

 

 

 

All unavailable at the moment.  TIA.

That's the top half of a brooks brothers wash and wear poplin suit. It's a poly cotton blend, the 37 might reference the pant size in which case the jacket would be a round a 43(?).

I really love the old BB wash and wear suits, but the sizing is impossible (I have a hunch they may shrink over time.
. As such I have yet to find one that fits for example I have a "42" that fits like a 40 L

No pictures tonight because my camera's flash sucks.

However, I picked up a made in Italy Brooks Brothers 1818 MAdison blue pinstripe suit. IT couldn't be much more than a year or so old and in perfect condition. A Samuelsohn navy blazer and a charcoal grey Samuelsohn suit. Both are full canvas construction and more hand work than I've seen on Samuelsohns in the past. Hand attached collars and lots of pic stitching.

Finally, I picked up a pair of J&M Aristocraft full brogues. Made in the USA with very nice calf leather and Goodyear welting. They're 7 Ds and Brian has been PMed.

Ah so - thank you for the info!  So it makes sense why the jacket almost fits me - I didn't measure and just tried it on in the store...and only really bought it because of the 3/2 roll which is pretty uncommon to find in any coat around these parts.  Grazie!

The Darltons are pretty badass too. Interested what your eBay search was that found 'em...

The Samuelsohns are both 44 L and the Brooks is 43 R.

Oh, and the blazer is Loro Piana fabric.

I hit 3 places with a friend today. The only thing I came up with was a Samuelsohn SC. It's sweet though and in excellent condition. Beautiful fabric, 44R, single vent.
Unfortunately way too big for me.

Hey!  I just did some catching up on ~ 200+ posts and can't believe the stuff that has been turned up!  Tiffany gold cuff links?  Framed vintage map?  NIB Breitling?  ffffuuuu.gifffffuuuu.gifffffuuuu.gif

 

I haven't really been able to make it out the stores as much lately, so this is more of a recent brag...

 

 

Vintage 1946 Ivy League University of Pennsylvania "Football Staff" Letter Jacket.  SOLD for $499.99!  icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

 

Also, I've decided to make a serious try at vintage consignment through my Etsy shop now that I've developed a small following there and have a couple of good (for me, anyway) sales under my belt.  I currently only have a couple of consignment pieces in the works (one of which is from a fellow thread-member here, fistbump.gif).  Shoot me a PM if you turn up anything interesting that you think might fit in with the overall theme of the shop and we'll see if we can work something out.

 

Here's a vintage Gloverall for BB duffle coat from one of the guys on here that's currently in my Etsy shop:

 

 

 

Thanks!

Literally. The lady emptied her late husband's (bio-medical inventor) desk contents into three boxes. Everything. Computer parts, blood pressure things, markers, papers, everything. Even a check book made it in there (gave it to her, saying she probably didn't want to sell that). She complimented my ambition to dig through "all the junk". got it for $10.
Yes, it's real. Had it looked at today. Has the papers and everything. Sorry for the crappy cell phone photos. They were taken right as I dropped it off at the jewleler's to have a new battery installed. Breitling Aerospace Navitimer. Titanium with what looked like gold accents.
