Sort of an E-thrift that arrived earlier...

These appear to be T&A's "lace" weave. Well made, quite substantial in hand, and pretty much like new.

Love the brown. I should probably check the T&As that I have and have been thinking were gren aren't "lace" weave.

I don't have much experience with workwear and American-made stuff. Was this Woolrich a good kop?

That's their current details label, which isn't saying much. They switched to that label in 1994 or so. Still, I pick up suits with this label if they are in good shape and at a decent price.

So I got up this morning and sat in this for 2 hours to get to my usual stores:



Last time I went in a snow storm nobody was there and two racks of killer recent Adrian Jules and Paul Stuart suits came out. Literally had them all to myself. Got there today in hopes of a replay of that day. No such luck. The stores were barren except for a few regulars. No goodies coming out though. Just junk. frown.gif

I did find a couple things to not make the trip a total loss. Nothing spectacular by any means but cool stuff. I'm calling it a good day simply due to the fact that I made it there and back in one piece. Counted 25 cars spun out/in the ditch on my trek. 4x4 doesn't make you invincible to the laws of physics. teacha.gif



Vintage Lee 101J sanforized denim jacket.


 

That Lee is nice, I passed on it yesterday.

Hey thrifters, anyone have a vintage/thrifted tux in 38R-40S? 38S works too.

Yes, if in good condition and for cheap.

Have found a few things in the last week or so though.

 

Sam'sohn knit silk (gorgeous) (Click to show)

 

 

 

 

Jpress NWT with golfers (Click to show)

 

 

 

 

 

Burberry's Prorsum Wool/Cash/Nylon Car Coat (Made in Italy--Anyone who can ID the tag is awesome) (Click to show)

 

 

 

 

 

Saks 5th Avenue Navy Wool/Cash triple patch light car coat (Ditto Italy and tag ID)Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

 

 

 

 

That vicuna is an awesome find but not a Prorsum. I'm thinking you are asking if it's the walkway line?

I'm confused. It says Prorsum on the tag.

All Burberry stuff says prosurum on the label. That's part of the logo.

Well, anytime you have that Burberry's it's their older stuff from the 90's or so. Prorsum is super rare in thrift stores. I've yet to seen on posted on here. A few years back, I looked up the label and found out it's their walkway only line with a red tag.

 

Edit: Found it.

Processed By eBay with ImageMagick, z1.1.0. ||B2

 

Recently, I'm guessing they've put on a RTW Prorsum line.

In short, any tag with the "'s" is not that great. :fonz: 

 

For me, if I'm not sure about how great a label is, I'll just resort to the quality test. If quality and a good price, cop. If not, blow my nose into the sleeves and exclaim, "Woooo, Morena!"

 

Hmmm, saw a older trench coat on fleabay that is going for $ because the sell added the word "Prorsum" in the label but no close up of the labels...Not very ethical but that goes to show you, sometimes, eBay buyers are clueless...

Yeah, I knew it was older, but I honestly don't know much about Burberry. I do know a nice coat when I see one, though!

 

Thanks for all the info!

Very nice!

Worth a kop?

Aesthetically: yes

I also think the white label is an older label (early-60s or earlier) but I could be wrong. You'd need to look for other clues too, like construction, buttons, etc
