The kicker is that these were in the women's suit section and had a pants hanger on them so these did have pants with them when they were put out. Where they are now, I haven't a clue. baldy[1].gif

If the pants for that turn up, you know who to PM. I think I need to take a vintage-hunting trip to Minnesota, with what you've been finding there lately!

You better not be two-timing me! biggrin.gif

Yup, 30s or 40s. According to internet wisdom, that's the 1936-1948 tag. I can't make it out completely from that pic, but the bottom left says "Copyright 193x." If x=6 then it can be more specifically dated 1936-38, and if x=9 then it's 1939-48.

Yep, that's right. Often the date is too blurry to read, though. The 1936 tag is pretty rare, however, so you can usually probably assume it's the 1939 tag.

I've never gotten absolute confirmation of this, but it seems like the number in the bottom right hand corner of the tag is always 80 on all the '39 ACWA tags I find, while the '36 tags I've seen seem to have a 2 there instead. But, like I said, I don't know for sure that's a reliable indicator.

None of those is as old as he thinks they are. '70s (and maybe '80s), every one of them. Not to burst anyone's bubble.

Any thread members out in Seattle? What's thrifting like out that way? Potential job opportunity came up today, and my first thought was to the quality of the local goodwills.

Any boot experts out there? Just found these today, but I'm pretty light on the details. The leather is VERY heavy, and given some of the cracking, I'm inclined to think these are horsehide. The only marking I can find are some perforations on the outside of both tongues that read "44 8 10641" and an inside stamp on both boots that reads "44 8 9922 20". The soles seem to have resoled with "Continental" soles at one point, although the mid sole can still be read on both to say "44 8 1".

 

Usually with boots of this condition, I'd guess that are American made, but the 44 size is obviously European. They appear to be handmade, given the amount of nails and tacks beneath the insole. The insole has one stamp in it that reads"44".

 

I guess I'm just interested if anyone happens to know the maker, or what the leather material is. The black laces are what the boots came with, but they are too short, so I was trying them on with a spare set of leather laces I had.

They are EUR made with that double wood pegging on the sole and 44 is US10.5E/11D in size. It should have 11.5 inches inside. Very robust.
