A little late but odds are its Attolini or Partenopea. It looks fairly modern. Any chance there is a small tag hiding in the cell phone pocket? Also what do the sleeve button holes look like? Are they faux stitched but stitched all the way through to the inside of the sleeve (like you could cut them and make them functional?)
But now you get to go thrift a car door from the wrecker's.
If you combine the hours you spend, effort you put in, including light boxes etc, That comes to like 20 bucks per hour. No lawyers will leave their jobs
Delete that damn post please. Competition with already existing purveyors of vintage fine men's clothing is bad enough.
(Couldn't call a pal flipper )
On unrelated news found a 50ies-60ies vintage USA made shearling coat. A beaut. From Gloucester, Mass and called a Mighty Mac.
I dunno... From hearing Wes's routes to knowing how long it takes to photograph, measure, list, answer questions, box, ship, etc. I bet he's putting in 40+ hours a week on his hobby. Me? I'm much lazier than that.
Interesting ads from '55 and '60 for the Copeg by Scholl shoes I found this weekend if you're interested. Made by Dr. Scholl's:
Bingo! I probably average 50 hours a week outside of the time I screw around here while at work. Plus I travel about 450-500 miles per week visiting thrift stores in the area. Motivated entirely by the high interest rates on my student loans. I intend to pay off the remaining 18 years worth of payments in the next 12-16 months.
I had this coat in college. If memory serves me correctly, you can fit two cans of beer in each side pocket. This was a must wear for outdoor parties.
