Yep. Thanks

Need some M65 help, please! Military issue or civilian? Didn't get that far with Google. In decent condition (no rips or stains, but some pilling on the back). Picked it up mainly because of the removable cold weather liner and size (XS).

Man, I read one page and I'm already ragequitting! wink.gif

Just kidding - I'm finally listing some of my piles on Ebay and someone here snagged a few things, which reminded me I should come on at some point! Nice to see some of the folks I remember still hanging out.

No time to thrift lately, though I have been snagging a few minor things now and then. Nothing baller like you guys, of course, but I did find a sweet pair of Zanella grey flannels the other day in, IIRC, LP fabric. Now, if only they weren't 2-pleats... some things never change, do they? smile.gif

Anyone educated with Duxbak Vintage Jackets. I found one today that is dated 1926. (I am guessing Nataku will be professor)

I hope this is an indication of something good with vintage Duxbak:

The M65 is military. It's a 1977 jacket with a 1975 liner. If you paid thrift prices for it you won't have trouble making a profit.

Awesome; thanks so much for the info!

I wanted to express my appreciation to everyone here sharing their awesome finds. I started reading this thread a few weeks ago, and was eager to start thrifting myself. If I find even a tenth of what you guys find, I'd be happy.
 
So after my first couple weeks of thrifting, considering the law of averages, I have to say that most of you here must be visiting the thrift stores a LOT. And if you're making a living at this, more power to you! I truly admire your dedication.
 
I might go a couple days a week during a lunch break or a weekend, so I'm buying just for myself. The Cleveland area is not the most fashionable place in the world, but I've learned to spot the good stuff. I make sure the fit is good, and since I don't have a mannequin, I model the shirts myself. My goal is to build a good quality CM wardrobe from scratch. Without further ado:
 
Vintage Florsheim Imperial Gunboat Longwings - $4.00
It's nice to find something exactly in your size - 9D
 

 
Brooks Brothers Blue Stripe Shirt - $4.35
Nice staple pattern - I'll be using this as my necktie shirt for modeling. Alteration: waist taken in.
 
 
Hart Schaffner Marx Shirt - $5.50
A bit wrinkled, hadn't ironed it yet. I like the pink windowpane check pattern. Alteration: waist taken in.
 
 
Corneliani Shirt - $6.00
Fractional neck size 15 3/4 but fits my 16 inch neck. Alteration: waist taken in.
 

 

Orvis Shirt - $4.35
The nicest, softest cotton of the bunch, but shoulders are too big (see how they droop over my shoulders, but not horribly). Hadn't noticed it before buying. Alteration: waist taken in.
 

 

Brooks Brothers Makers Red Floral Necktie - $1.00
A bit wide, but very nice eye-popping red tie that will go with a lot of shirts.
 

 

Vineyard Vines Custom Collection Vanguard Necktie - $1.99
Nice sailing theme.

Guess I'll have to do better next time, that cashmere jacket is sexy!

My super 180's chocolate brown suit will have to do for now, poor me.

Sorry, just thought it was funny, my first ever Kiton, and I go to brag... it's like someone beat me to it!

Too damn funny, I almost made a joke in my post about how you would chime in with... "Hey, I'm here on the loading dock and there's thirty pallets of new Kiton suits, $7 each...pallet" No joke, I should've done it.

+1. These OD green M65s are a good pickup if in good shape and the earlier the better. The early ones (66-69) sell for a good chunk of change if they're minty. Sold one dated 1968 (Medium- Reg, a common size). for $150 a year or so ago.

I saw this while running my daily Duxbak search on eBay a few days ago (been searching for a duck hunter camo pocket t-shirt for 4 years now - I know one is out there!) and knew that one would bring a pretty penny!

Any deets/pics on your pickup? duck canvas or wool? Very early hunting jackets were usually made from canvas and were olive green in color. The company was based out of Utica, NY. The company started up in the early 1900's making hats and jackets. The company was at first called Utica-Duxbak Corporation, as their canvas "repelled water like a duck's back". The company went under in the early 90's. I sold a few of my catalogs to a gentleman in NY who told me he had interest in buying and reviving the Duxbak name and making it into a heritage label and he was buying the catalogs to have some sort of visual representation of the company's offerings over the years. I really hope it's coming along ok. I told him if he did get it going again, I'd be the first buyer if he made a run of the t-shirt I wanted!

A jacket that early is extremely rare and worth quite a bit. I have some Duxbak catalogs around somewhere, but I think the oldest I have is from the early 50's.

Yeah, that's why I picked 'em up... doesn't hurt that they were 1.99... wink.gif

I'm a LOT more picky in what I pick up nowadays, which is part of it.

Harrods Black Leather Jacket.



I usually never pick up leather jackets, but this one seemed really nice. Photo is crap, but leather is soft and beautiful.

German language tags. Size 52 European.
