Not exactly thrifted but I just got a pair of Allen Edmond MacNiel wingtips in Shell Cordovan for $60!
Another snow storm and another (vintage) haul.
Hudson's Bay point blanket coat. Very old. Maybe 1940s, but need to do more research. It's unisex. The front can be buttoned up either side.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Klondike hunting jacket. Late 60s to early-70s. Mint. Made in Japan. Corduroy collar, shell strips under pocket flaps AND snapped and zippered game pocket in back, with rubberized interior.
Wood's quilted hunting jacket. Probably 1960s, maybe 1950s. See pic with tag; cuffs have been repaired with home made knitted replacements.
Wool scarf. Need to think about the date a bit. Should say West Germany but says Western Germany. Maybe pre-wall? I don't know, but a quality item at any rate.
Mollenkamp & Goecke German army kit. 1961 date.
Pretty much the oldest Harris Tweed label I've found. Probably mid-1950s. There were two others that I left behind because the linings were blown out.
Unlabelled boots but built like a tank.
Sweater for my business partner. Who buys a sweater in Bermuda?
And a quilted PRL jacket.
Was curious about this myself so I poked around on the web. That HT may be older, looks similar to a label dated to the 40s.
How do you know the maker of those pants? I've seen them several times in the thread, and sold a pair myself, but I haven't been able to find much on the web about a maker.
Have you cracked the code on the registration number? Seems that folks at the Harris Tweed Authority can determine the age of a coat, but they don't publish the data.
I recently picked up a Harris Tweed overcoat that fits as if it were custom made for me. Have been trying to figure out how old it is. Shame I only get to wear it a few months out of the year...
L to R: Brittany house London, nwt jcrew, nwt bb, nwot bb, ignore the gant.
I'm keeping the Brittany for the pattern and the rest are holiday gifts for my 3 bosses! I'm almost jealous because I really like the striped JCrew and BB ones.
