If you come across this setup, get at me and I'll trade you my Lorenzini linen shirt, straight up. I know the trade would be uneven but I'll take the hit. Maybe you could throw in a Hermes tie or sommat. lol8[1].gif

Fishy is going thrifting... for a different kind of quarry!

 

So after two trips across the country, the rolling duffel  used as a carry on bag has failed spectacularly. Last time I buy cheap luggage. I am flying back home on the 12th and absolutely need a bag for carry-on. I figure the most economical option is to thrift it.

 

 Goodwill and salvation army typically have luggage of some kind. What brands should I look for?

Wow, totally forgot about Krell. My buddy's father was a lawyer and got paid with something like $18k in Krell gear for a case he worked. When the parents weren't home, we'd crank the shit out of it. Still wonder what happened to that set up when he went to prison...

Only if you wear it with the pants above....

Been searching for this jacket for at least 2 years. Unfortunately, although it is sized 44, it does not fit me. I did get it zipped, but trust me it was all wrong, LOL. There will be no fit pics of that disaster, you would all have to pluck out your eyes and burn your monitors.

Not so fast, haters...

I came across a top coat awhile back that was a CD-HSM collaboration and it flipped easily--in fact. enough interest that I could have squeezed another $20 or so out of it. It was claimed within a few hours on AAAC. There was no fabric content indicated, but I'm pretty darn sure it was cashmere, and the buyer was happy. Another member here kindly found a newspaper article on the CD-HSM collaboration, which started in 1973. Not sure how long it lasted, but the suits described in the story cost between $875 and $1,200 in today's dollars, which suggests a certain level of quality.

I think those run small in general. There's a non-Schott version of the same jacket in a vintage store near me. It's either a 44 or 46, but fits me (40-41R) pretty well. I have a Harley and have been drooling over the jacket for a while, but they want about $120 for it and that's more than I want to spend.

Ocooney (what a dude!) sent me motoracer which fits great and it is a 48. You have to go 2-3 sizes up with Schott.
I also found a very interesting brown distressed leather car coat made by Comet ( I think they now make racing leathers) for a NYC shop. It has similar closure like yours, zipper sleeves. Two zippers in the back opens and lets you ride.
It is a size Medium, but very small except the shoulders. I even wondered of it is a women's but shoulders and zipper location is men's. I will post pics.

Nice, I just sold the one i found for big $$$$$, hard to let go, but not quite what I was looking for. It was a 38 and fit like a 38 though.
post #56429 of 110378

Thought I found some AE Leeds shell Cordovan, model number matched the shell sheet, but there was micro creasing. For $8 picked up anyway, can always return. Further review leads me to believe these Leeds are not shell. The on line Issuu catalogs from 1985 showed a 9548 in polished burgundy, couldn't remember what year the changed the inside orientation of the logo (Wes?).
