Nice!!!

There was a Holubar store here in the Twin Cities. Opened summer (July, I think) on '77 and closed in 1982 if I recall correctly when they were bought out by The North Face and the store turned into a North Face store. Very nice stuff.

Actually there was, but nothing to the extent that we have today. REI, EMS, North Face, Bugaboo, Kelty, Wilderness Experience, Class 5, Gerry and lots of lesser-known labels that have since then disappeared were out there back in the 70's. Finding out about them was a different story if your local mountaineering shop didn't carry them. You found out about new companies and such from reading magazines like Wilderness Camping and Backpacker. Nothing like that we have now with internet access and nation-wide marketing. Some of the lesser-known labels from Calif and Colorado had a hard time reaching customers on the other side of the country and simply didn't last. Others gained momentum and got bigger and bigger. Class 5 was based in Berkeley and had started in the early 70's. By the late 1970's Daytons Department store here in Minnesota carried a few of their outerwear offerings. I have no clue why they went under, though.

this is not a brag

this is not a thrift fit pic

this is a thank you to my thread brethren for teaching me what is good, what looks like crap, what is a bargain, what isn't.

My family takes a cellphone portrait every Easter. It seems to be the only time when we all are dressed up at the same time, and we mark the years here. Practically all the clothes in this shot were thrifted/outlet/flea market. Posted on FB, 15 likes in a few hours (excellent for me, hah).

THat's a canali jacket for me. H-F tie. Florsheim 2-tone brown loafers. My son's clothes...damn beanpole. I buy him RL stuff and he grows out of it in 5 minutes. She did get him dress socks for the pic but he grabbed white ankle socks at last minute hahahahaha killing the pic. But otherwise...it's pretty good (her skirt came from my crazee San Jose run last spring...and that's a cashmere sweater under the jacket...)

I like your presence on here, really. Breath of fresh air.

Do you ever look for clothes for yourself? I find tons of womens stuff... PM me if you need anything and (i know, ordinarily uncouth to ask, but) your size.

Happy Easter!

I heard somewhere that Oxxford Made in Italy shirts were Kiton. Any truth to this?

Once upon a time, yes, but I think it was a very limited time they did that, maybe one or two seasons? Not 100% sure.

Neither of them played for the Browns

Would love to have a 19 Kosar Jersey
post #67543 of 125361
So I grew up and went to college in Ohio. Interviewed then-gov. voinovich's son (kosar era) for an article about Browns fans. One of my favorite quotes in the thousands of stories I've written, ever: "My dad goes to the game with doctors and stuff, and they all turn into animals!"
post #67544 of 125361

Not sure if this Lanvin is any good, but it is definitely not as bad at the other stuff I have come across, they always have said New York on them.

Wool/Cash blend, fully canvassed, lined pants, made in Italy.

Word of warning to all: Don't use the treatment on Incotex chinolinos. The labels and/or waistband linings are not colorfast, at least not when vinegar and Oxyclean are involved. frown.gif
