I plan to put them up on the B/S thread (and maybe eBay) at a reasonable price. Let me know if there is any interest here before I do.

Oh my gerd. What's "reasonable" for these? Totes interested.

Also, they seem to be semi standard in width right? Not looking too wide.

Yeah, I came across a like new 2006 Brooks Brothers navy blazer in Loro Piana fabric, but I passed on it due to the lack of vents, so they were still making ventless jackets as recently as 6 years ago.

Saw a Bottega Venetia suit from a very recent collection - ventless.
Recent Canali suit sitting at Off Fifth = ventless.
True, over here in most high scale department stores, ventless pieces are not very common. When I was in Italy around 6 years ago, many many suit jackets and SC's were ventless. I have no idea what it is like today, but 6 years is not that long ago.
My summary: Ventless is not out of date at all, it is just an old wives tale that ventless = 1980's / prehistorical bollocks.

Yep, this is a rather old insole.  Before the current natural color insole, there was the black insole, and before that the tan insole, with all of them the writing was perpendicular to the length of the shoe.  This insole is from before that time period, but I don't know when that was from.

Must be older though, never seen this insole. Any insight?

Wes, love that tweed 3-piece.

Yes, but your options quickly disappear if not treated quickly/first/correctly.  I've had excellent luck with Carbona ink remover - a soap based product which 'm sure is similar to Amodex.  Also, I generally do longer soak periods and dilute the the soap treatment with some 90% isoproply alcohol, which also works quite well with ink stains.  Its the old soap and solvent overnight heave-ho in getting that last little bit which doesn't want to dab out.

 

Hairspray is often recommend because of the high alocohl content but 90% is cheaper than hairspray for the most part.

 

However, be warned - soaps don't work to well after a drying if you use a dryer AND chlorine bleach sets ink stains.  I always air dry if there is even a chance of potentially re-treating, espically after laundering.

 

I have never tried to remove ink after an oxy treatment, but I'd be inclined to think it would be more difficult.  I don't know if the ph changes or hyrogen peroxide react with inks.  Perhaps over christmas I'll experiment.

 

Hope this helps

All good info. I probably screwed it up by trying the oxy first but good info for the future as well. No big loss if so since it was cheap and I haven't even tried it on yet.

Anyway you can take a full pic of it? I found a very similar one a week ago by HSM. I need to switch out the buttons, pics in a couple days when I get em done.

Went thrifting for the first time in a while, found some interesting shtuff.

I found these today, they're Charles Phillip Shanghai slippers, but I cannot tell for the life of me if they're for men or women and where the hell the decided to list the size. Any tips? I've never gotten around to owning a pair of these before.... (available, if they're for women then it's off to the 'bay)

Lastly (for now), Mossy-green Harris Tweed J-Crew sportcoat, sz 44, availiable. Thing doesn't even look like it's ever been worn. I love the color, and the red detailing is pretty cool. Why don't more things fit me -_-

 

-3 button

-single vent

-Made in Macau, but real Harris Tweed

-Seems to be fairly new style wise
