More travel thrifting, this time at an antique shop.

An ancient australian oilcloth coat. (Passed.)


I'm trying to get them to budge on the price of this purportedly authentic WWII Pea Coat.


All I ended up getting was this Japanese pocket square.

I'm not really a connoisseur, so I don't know if the white streaks are a major flaw or what, but it looks good in my pocket! Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Hoping you guys could help me out with this or atleast explain what I am looking at. A friend found it and I am keeping it for personal use. It is a j.press blazer with burberrys tags. Was there a time in which j.press was selling burberrys?
The union label puts in in the 70s to 80s range if I am correct.

Tagged a 42L, length is 32". If you want it let me know, the condition isn't top notch, though. I have more pics. I started the auction already but would gladly end it if you like it a lot.

Cross-posting from the Vintage Thread

 

Found a tuxedo jacket the other night. It was custom made by Leopald Morse in Boston Massachusetts. It is dated 1/14/1941 and was made for Mayor Maurice Tobin, mayor of Boston from 1938-1945. I found a photo online of Tobin along side of Massachusetts Attorney General Paul Denver at the Democratic Inaugural Dinner. Paul Denver was in office from 1935-1941. By cross referencing the data with the years of the Democratic Inaugural Dinners for FDR, (1933, 1937 and 1941), there is only one Inaugural Dinner where these two men would have been seen together while holding those offices.  Just so happens, the Inaugural dinner is held January 19th (my birthday) the night before the actual Inauguration. While I can't say definitively, it would appear that the tuxedo I found was made for this event and delivered to Mayor Tobin just 5 days earlier. Wouldn't you wear your new suit to the big event? I would.

 

I have tracked down the owner of a 1941 Inaugural Dinner Menu and Seating Chart and am awaiting a response to see if I can place these two at the table.

 

Tobin is on the left.

I don't think I've ever seen JPG on this thread so did I do a bad thing shog[1].gif

 

JPG might not have quite the panache it used to, but it's still a pretty cool find. If you don't feel like flipping and those measure anywhere near a 34/32-infinity, get at me.

Wasn't going to go anywhere this weekend (lack of funds till payday) but the lady was insistent we go somewhere today. A couple fall finds that are available

Vintage Woolrich Buffalo Check (size Small)



Hudsons Bay Wool Jacket (fits like a medium. This might be a women's with the purple lining of the sleeves but who knows. buttons the mens way)



Found my first Duchamp but passed because it was a total clown tie (and in not that good shape)
