You should post them over in the vintage thread too.

^^^ The early 1900s detachable collar shirt and matching detachable collar were eBay pickups for a song. The 1920s - 1930s blue OCBD popover was a thrift find on my part. And the 1940s -1950s white OCBD was a purchase from a guy over at Talk Ivy who found a number of them in a barn in Upstate NY. I actually have a couple of these ones for sale in my Etsy shop. I got them totally white using the "Method" and a special laundry service. I've never come across white OCBDs in such great wearable condition. All the shirts that Derek used for the article were some of the best I've ever come across.

I wasn't too surprised by the dates the BB rep. came up with. I was pretty dead on re: the detachable collar shirt and the white OCBDs. However, I sold the blue OCBD popover as 1950s deadstock when I now believe it to be 1920s - 1930s (or even older) deadstock - I've seen vintage BB ads from the teens & twenties with more or less the same shirt offered. It was a fine shirt.

^^^ When I get back from vacation I will try to post a few things over on the vintage thread. I have a ton of nice things (both from myself and from some of you guys for consignment) that would fit in well over there.

Thanks Put This On!

This was a fascinating read.

I would love to see a label progression for BB shirt and suit labels. Seems to be a question that comes up a lot, but has never been exhaustively explored (at least that I ever found).
post #68723 of 110458
This as well as ties. I've come across several different much older labels - if we can organize a reference, I'd be happy to provide pics of the stuff in my collection.

Would kop those easter Air Max Nikes.

 

And lol @ some strange selvage brand with bible verses.

post #68726 of 110458

Found this Patrick James (research reveals P-J is a chain store of sorts, so unsure who actually made the shirt) shirt which feels amazing - soft and heavy.  Fits nicely

 

 

And got back this very heavy cord blazer from the dry cleaners - very heavy solid construction, made in Poland, great for this "spring" weather.  I'm sure winter will eventually leave.  Unsure if Brad Whitney is a notable maker?

 

 

Walked away from 2 ten dollar Zenga shirts.  They were ... ugly.  Which figures - central USA thrift finds with desirable names seem pretty rare, so of course they have to be ugly too.

Quick help needed.

Real or fake.

Sooooo I went thrifting for the first time and actually bought a few things, nothing crazy 2 phineas cole shirts and a great y'apre shirt all available will post pics and sizes later.
Update: on the tom ford suit scammer wrongwroks and his other sf name m0bbie Rachapoll Phromyarat scammer, someone hacked his skype and spoke to him, he straight up admitted he did it and said thats what he does for a living, apparently he lives in Bangkok, he said he wont scam the same person twice and hes not going to return the money or the suit, (I wish the mods could verify with ip addresses) so heres a warning to you guys.
