post #52981 of 114470

Had an insane day yesterday. The thrift gods were smiling down on me after a slow two weeks. It will likely take me all weekend to go through and photo everything...potentially longer.

 

But first..a question.

 

Are these bow ties or something else? They are obviously masculine patterns. 

Non adjustable, 44.5" long and 2.25" wide. Seem to large for my 17.5" neck. If they are bowties, is there some sort of accessory needed to reduce the length or do you just wrap it a few extra times?

My paper had an article about a local ski shop having it's 50 year anniversary and it was a bit of a time capsule of outdoor/ski wear.

I'm sure none of these are on Nataku's list of outdoor wear to keep an eye out but this might be a trip down memory lane for some of the older skiers who may be on this forum.

Manufacturers mentioned include:
  • David S. Reid
  • SunIce
  • Decente
  • Anba
  • Bogner
  • Ditrani
  • Nevica

I see the odd piece turn up in thrifts but I'm sure most of it was used hard and put away wet so completely beat to hell at the end of it's life, or when fashions began to change.

Though I do remember with fondness the craze for "Stretchies" in the early 80s. Think the precursor of yoga pants.

I suppose they could be cravats, but I think they are a bit thin for that.

Maybe a variation on a string/western bow tie?

Batwings, I believe.

If no one else wants it, I'd love to have the buttons only! First dibs to anyone that would actually wear it or if you'd prefer to re-donate it!

If they don't fit, I'd be very interested! shog[1].gif

Haha! I guess I should have been clearer: if the jacket is worth nothing, I was going to keep the buttons for myself (though I'd be happy to do someone a solid if they have an immediare need for them). I was just trying to determine if I hold onto the whole jacket, or jyst the buttons.
For now I will hold the whole. If no one else claims the buttons, I will let you know.

We just got word of an unexpected death in the extended family, so we're heading to NC in a bit. That said, I already took these measurements - but I can't remember who I was supposed to PM them to (they were requested in the thread) so please forgive the "public notice" to whoever was interested in that 42L vintage A&F jacket from a few days back. Measurements spoilerized below.

reminder: this is what I'm talking about:
IMG_8791.JPG

measurements:

pit to pit 24.5 (remember this is a thick and heavy coat with a heavy lining - this really is around a 42-44, no larger - I'm a 48 and it's comically small on me if I try to put it on)
length from top of collar: 40.25"
length from bottom of collar: 37"
shoulder width from seam to seam: 20.5ish - theyr'e slightly rounded so it's hard to say with exact certainty
sleeve length from shoulder seam: ~25.25"

sorry I forgot who you were and I don't have time given the impending surprise trip to dig through the thread! shog[1].gif
