The Welsh & Jefferies was a double breasted. The Plews an orphaned dinner jacket. Both moth bitten beyond repair. Very sad.

That original label "Mill Valley, California" tagged Banana Republic is the duster you're looking for. As you probably know, when The Gap (before it was just "Gap") took over and then later sacked travel journalists Mel & Patricia Ziegler (Banana's founders), the whole safari and travel ethos was chucked, sadly. If you've not seen it, here's a great site called "Abandoned Republic" that celebrates the early years, incredibly well-written catalogs, etc.: Abandoned Republic LINK

You'll make some money selling as-is for resole, but I don't think it'd be worth it to have them resoled before selling.

Sargent and Cheaney also made for Polo.

Sick. I love finding ties, maybe because they're a one size fits all kinda deal and I know I always have the option of keeping them.

Thanks, but I am pretty sure it's not a grenadine...

^^ Ah, got it. It was difficult to tell on my phone. Still incredible, though!

Don't think it's a grenadine. It's a navy / black weave.

Something I passed on but thought was curious just from the tags.  Was a nice heavy coat - double breasted unvented....
