return it??????????????????
or sell it to a japanese buyer for 200 bucks!!

+1 - Would prob fit but I would never wear that :(

Last pic is to show the dual vents and four button cuffs, both of which are recent styling right?

The things I can see in this pic aren't inconsistent with Belvests I've seen, but the real proof is in the manufacture tag. It should be inside one of the inner pockets. Can you get a shot of that and post your question here:

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but this is one of the many brands they sell at Urban Outfitters, nothing special. I had a windbreaker from them I bought (gasp!) new from UO waaaaaaaaaay before my time at SF, thing fell apart after about a month.

Only the big names like Hercules, Sweet Orr, Champion, Pendleton, etc. Yeah, funny how time flies and you can see the difference in the clothing at thrift stores. I remember seeing suits from the 40's at the Salvation Army pretty regularly for $5 a piece. Now it's polyester garbage from the 70's.

Vintage stuff that would never sell on ebay tends to sell on Etsy pretty well for cool stuff like that.

They sold middle of the road stuff (Pioneer, Technics, Kenwood, Denon, etc) and the DLK speakers were among the higher-end stuff there, despite being their "house label". Models ranged from the bookshelf size DLK 1/4's, 1/2, 1, 1 1/2's, 2, etc all the way up to the insane DLK 4's which had crazy dark wood cabinets and I think a marble top. Retail on the 4's were over $1,000 back then and the DLK 1/4's were the most affordable at around $150-$200.

When Schaak Electronics folded, Sound of Music bought out what the store had left after a massive fire sale and Sound of Music changed their name to Best Buy a few years later.

I find them pretty often here in the TC but they are out there in nearby states as well. I remember someone out of state found a pair and inquired about them on here a year or two ago. There's a pretty big following for them and are worth a decent amount of eBay or CL.


Thanks for the history lesson. Found a pair yesterday, perhaps the pair you put back, but didn't recognize the brand.

The BELVEST tag looks authentic. CUZZENS is a high end chain of stores in LAS VEGAS.They had locations in a number of casinos like the HILTON and CAESARS PALACE.  20+ years ago they were the only store selling brands like BRIONI, BELVEST,RICCI and D'AVENZA here in LAS VEGAS.

thriftydood I almost always skip SS shirts unless I'm finding a lot of good stuff in one store. I think you've inspired me look more often. Awesome stuff.
