Lol. Before I decide how I feel about this statement, I need some clarification.

Do you mean Queen like this...



Or



Certainly not this...this would be a drag!


Hopefully something more like this. The Queen of Tweed!

This got held up yesterday since I'm new but thoughts on if i should pick up the croc nettleton's that need a resole? Thanks

First off though, I passed on a pair of black crocodile Nettleton's earlier today in 11.5 or 12 (no mark so estimate vs my 10's). Thought of picking them up and seeing interest but had a hole worn through one of the soles (so full resole needed) and wasn't sure about customs policies for Canada to US shipping of exotics. Uppers were in solid condition but couldn't justify the hassle at the time.
Anyways, Cooper A2 flight jacket in brown goatskin size 50r. Was on the extreme end of my thrift cut of but i got excited and couldn't pass even though it doesn't fit. Available

Older Barbour Liddesdale (no inner pocket) which fits me perfectly. Although quilting is coming undone everywhere I spoke with CS at Barbour NH and they said they'd restitch for free. N/A

Calafate shearling B3 bomber in size M, made in Argentina. The leather shows a bit of wear which I actually prefer over shiny looking newer leather. Shearling is super plush and rivals any of my other 2 shearling rancher coats. Fits well but unsure if I really need another shearling.

Billingham portfolio/briefcase in canvas with leather accents, made in England. Couldn't find out much about this although I know Billingham is known for their camera bags. I have been unable to find anything about a non-camera bag line although I have heard their stuff rivals Filson in durability and construction.

William Evans tweed, insulated shooting coat in 42, made in Great Britain. Beauty of a coat which may or may not turn into my outdoor work coat. Nice and roomie for mobility and has antler (?) buttons with leather trimming and pockets for everything.

I've been a Niners fan since I was kid and had this exact bomber. One day it mysteriously disappeared and I have searching for a replacement for well over a decade. I was in SF last year and saw a homeless guy wearing one that was falling apart and for a whole 3 seconds I actually contemplated trying to buy it off of him and seeing if the drycleaners could fix it up...never happened and then I found this in a thrift...in my size...while visiting SF!
Mid 90s Chalkline SF Forty Niners gold bomber jacket in M. Fits like a glove and although nowhere near the most valuable thing I've thrifted, definitely my favorite. N/A

I love the thrift synergy on this thread.

Here are some pics of that pendleton. I knew the back was a little beat, but missed the small hole on the front. Nevertheless, i think i'll find some wear for it!

Enjoyed your observation, I can finally get this monkey off my back thinking I was the only one patch[1].gif

+1. Awful. Had no idea Cucinelli made an attempt at jeans.

Hard to tell, but does this have the hood too? I've only found one or two down parkas with the original optional hoods still attached. Many times people didn't opt to purchase them or if they did, they were lost many years ago.

Yup, pretty much. The stuff from the early 70's and prior is pretty good but can be hard to tell to the untrained eye. Basically if you have any doubts on Gant and wouldn't wear it yourself, pass. The stuff from the 80's and 90's sucked. Pretty easy to tell by styling.

Thanks! Got them at a local vintage/consignment store, so basically thrifted.
