post #51256 of 117841

Had a Nataku kinda day today...some Americana, some Militaria, some SW&D, some breathtaking MC, and some horse's ass.

 

I need a Nat signal for this one....

 

Probably the heaviest piece I've ever thrifted, upwards of 6 or 7 lbs.  Has over a half dozen pockets, three of which are on the back.  Tons of snaps, RiRi zippers, it's been repaired numerous times.  Nat, any idea what country this is from, what the camo's called, what era?  I think I can estimate by how it fits me that the "52" stamped inside is a euro size large, but everything else about this is a mystery to me.  Could it be a hunting jacket?

I only hit three stores today, two of which were home runs, while the first was a strikeout.  The first, usually the honey hole, has been consistently raising their prices on suits so while I've seen some nice stuff, I'm not ready to drop $40-70 on possible flops.

 

The second store is one I usually let recharge for awhile.  It doesn't often have the most current stuff and I can tell no flippers go through there because I left a meh Etro shirt two months ago and it's still in the same spot.  Good news for me.  The funniest part about this store is that they are always 30% off the ticketed price, but 50% off when it's currently snowing.  It snowed last night, but not today.  Damn.

 

I hit the suits and SCs first as they moved them and looked like they added tothe collection.  Mostly polyester junk, but what's this?

 

Gianluca Isaia.  Yes, unvented but in a very pleasing to the eye pattern.  Great condition with the exception of a smudge at the lapel that should brush off or come out with a cleaning.

This place is rad in that they often have oddball, very well made outerwear.  I passed on a pilled vintage Golden Bear peacoat, a really nice peak lapel charcoal overcoat, and a tan overcoat with zip-in lining in my size (36R).

 

 

What I did pick up is this baller, on point with FW12 style, Clicker car coat with a slight shawl collar, ribbed cuffs, lined, Talon zippers.  It has the works as far as well made jacket from the 50s/60s go.  Looks like a little fading on the collar...could also be dirt that could wash out.  Stupidly nice coat.  sz, 40

Riding this high, I hit another store that I let recharge, but that has high traffic so the turnover is awesome.  I always scan the shoes first as  they are mostly at eye level, displayed above several of the racks.  Oh, what's this my little horsey friend.

 

Super nice, barely worn shell loafers.  Royal Tweed Premium Grade by Cheaney.  Can't quite make out the size, but they look to be around 9 1/2.

On to the outerwear as there tends to be a congregation of people tearing this rack apart, flinging jackets any which way. 

 

 

I have no idea how this jacket accumulated so many patches over a decade as I would've torn, stained, or lost this in the first couple of years.  Hard to believe, but this jacket must've been on the launchpad at least a couple times in its life.  The owner is obviously from CO and worked for companies that supplied parts to the various space missions in the late 60s and 70s.  He looks to have been a high end European auto enthusiast.  I love the Coor's, Spacelab, and Roadrunner/Wiley Coyote patches the most.  You can't make this kind of piece up.  Best of all is it's a size 36.  Fits me and when I grow tired of it, I will probably be sending it to Japan for a decent chunk of change.

I am loving this thread. 

 

I recently bought these vintage Church's at a thrift store in Aspen, CO. They fit me perfectly and are the most comfortable dress shoe I've worn so far:

I would guess that it is vintage Swiss military. It was their common pattern for a long time.

Really interesting finds! Those pants are awesome and you will definitely get a decent amount on the jacket with the patches!

Sorry man, I am keeping them! The one pair is an 11 and the other a 10.5, but for some reason they fit my 11-11.5 foot. I don't ask questions. The store had another pair in a 10.5w in a lighter shade of brown. If you are interested, pm me.

No one else asked what it was. Nat said he learned something new and I provided more information about it.

We often have contributing opinions/experiences here and it's the main reason we all gain new information from this thread.
