It would be unethical if I were to tear out the EB label and sew in a Filson label and flip it for $75 on a BIN, but I would actually be doing the buyer a favor. I wouldn't be surprised if it goes through the cycle and ends up at 59 cents. At that point, I'll buy it.
Very true! EB used to make killer down stuff back in the 50's and 60's. It's sad that much of their high quality vintage stuff gets passed over because nobody really knows what they used to be. Also sad that they became so commercialized. Still, they're my go-to store for shorts.

I see Gitman all day but have never found any Gitman Vintage.
I'd really love to find some Gitman Vintage someday. Would be even nicer if it were in my size...

Very nice find, and welcome aboard!

Never heard of it, but it has "the look". Looks like a cool tie for sure!

First, some NIB shoes acquired at the Gilt popup outlet sale they're running here in Louisville for another three weeks or so:Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
All drool-worthy shoes! Did the Gilt popup sale have any cool clothing? Man, I'd be broke if this rolled into my town!
