Wow, that's an awesome blackwatch duffle coat. Very easy to rock it.

I love braces, helps keeping my pants in one place all day.

Quality is very high, and as said cut is very modern. Fits me like a glove, too. As long as I'm not wearing a jacket. facepalm.gif so I guess that makes it, what, a 40? Or. 38? Tbtw, sorry about the crappy cellphone pics)
In other news: I figuurd out how to pst pics to th. Without resorting to a thrEe ring circuis.

Wow, awesome blog! I'm probably going to hold onto the hercules for this winter at least. 60+ years of wear have made it nice and soft.

To all the thrifters here that shop for shoes....

 

Do you guys pick up leather shoes with very tip of the toe that shows wear...specifically a little bit of peeling? Like if they kicked the corner of a table or something type.

 

I left behind a pair of Leather Horsebit Loafers from Ermenegildo Zegna. and changed my mind at the last second because the wear on the toe, all though not horrible turned me off into flipping them. This and the price, they wanted $25 for them...I said Nevermind.

 

The rest of the shoe was in good shape, but now im doubting my decision....

 

What do you guys think...run back tommorrow morning? or Forget about them?

Thanks! I have no idea what he actually wears to court, I just thought he might like it and since he has no boss at his office, there would be no reason to get worried about wearing something more conservative. From what he tells me, his clients are not the sort that are involved in white collar crime nod[1].gif I believe they're more the type to pay in cash for such services, so I doubt they'd be too upset if their lawyer was wearing an animal print tie in a meeting.

Part 60/40 parka (WTF is contrast facing?), with a lot of extra details that I'd expect to see on Filson (Italy), Barbour TO KI TO, or some Daiki Suzuki designed jacket. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)





It's pretty generously cut... Any one here ever try to have this kind of outwear tailored?
Also, a pretty damn sweet vintage Hercules wool work shirt. I haven't seen too much vintage workwear on this thread, and as you guys are my main source of knowledge, I don't know too much about this one. I've seen the brand on a few vintage workwear blogs, it's winter, the shirt is wool, and it fits... so what the hell right? Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)


The elbows are blown but I figure I can patch them up.

Well hate to break the news to yah, but the BR is newer, no the old stuff...the "RN" number on the size tag puts it in company with GAP and Old Navy as they use the exact same BR #...still cool, but not the stuff Jesse is talking about.

As for the Hercules shirt, probably early 60's just from the styling, tho I could probably do a label check to see when that version was used. Hercules was a brand name use by Sears into the early 60's. If it would have been cotton it would of been $ in Japan...probably still could get some $ even in the condition it in, even being wool.

Alright, I know this is somewhat off topic, but im doing some research on shit I left behind today and came across this seller. His picture setup is pretty fucking funny.

Sometimes I wish I didnt give a shit enough about what im selling so that I could bang out listings like crazy. Oh, and sorry if this is anyone of you.
