Do they smell like cigarettes?  Aren't those items the ones you get by collecting coupons from packages of cigs to redeem for cool branded stuff to be buried in?

Oh, apparently not, but they are licensing the name and logo from Philip Morris Altria. Wiki  They have changed their branding to distance themselves from the smokes MCS

These :

Also, any info on these buttons? Wes and I were having a conversation about them, I thought they said "90" in the shape of the cannon, which would put it about 90 years after the civil war, which would coincide with the ACTWU label being about 1953. Anyone have an opinion?



Also never heard of this maker but these shoes are SOLID.

 

Looks real from here. Evisu also miss spell "jeans" to "genes" on purpose. No.2 is basically your mainline. Is it made in Japan for China? I'm thinking Japan? Is it selvedge? It's hella ugly and should get you like $50 -$80. No.1 goes for more. But since you are Spoo, you might get like $89.08 or something like that. lol If you ever find a pair of No.0, you have won the internet! Also, do you have pics of the buttons close up?

I had very good luck on kijiji getting 6 mid-century modern danish teak pieces this morning. The cost was more than thrift store but way less than an antique or even consignment store. Pictured below are the 2 beds we got. Not pictured are a 6-drawer dresser, 2 book shelves with cabinet bottoms and narrow Poul Cadovius-like wall shelf unit similar to this one (mine has no writing desk but had a second drawer suspended in its place).









And even though prices were more than reasonable I needed to DEAL. He wouldn't budge in price but I got him to throw in a stereo system. Can anyone tell me about this Sony turntable and Bose speakers?

Spoo, amazing haul. Tell me more about these - are they vintage? Those fabric patterns were popular in the '20s but not much after that, in menswear anyway. But the rise looks too low on those to be that old.

Arent they great? I thought Wes was going to comment on some bananas tweed pants...

20s? Probably not that old. They are vintage yes, found in the "vintage" section of a thrift. I would wear the hell out of these to be honest. Heres some more pics. Best I can guess is the 60s-70s. theres only one label in there.
