    Like this thread, I do this a lot, too; will contribute. I used to do Etsy roundups on tumblr but no one seemed to really care

    I've found some really sweet stuff on Etsy but I've never actually bought anything. My girlfriend runs a moderately successful Etsy shop. If you ever find a vintage camel duffle that would fit a 40 well, holla.

    OK, so this next listing isn't that cheap, but it's literally the best flannel shirt that Wings + Horns ever made. RiRi zips, great slim fit, excellent fabric -- nothing they make currently comes close. If you buy this you will thank me. This, along with the nanook hoodie, are the two coolest W+H pieces.

    Wings + Horns Blue Zip Flannel, $99 BIN

    I've bought somewhat successfully on Etsy but it is the Pinterest to Ebay's/SF's tumblr. Many listings leave important things (like measurements) out or have bad/try hard photos. That said ebay is so scavenged these days Etsy can be a decent source for "people who don't know what they have." Although there's a good number of people who try to sell busted red wings or aldens for $200+


    Re: hats, have you checked out Highland 2000, either on marrkt or other sites? There's also milsurp if you're willing to go OD or black. J Press also has chunky watch caps <$50

    Whatever you do don't go ColumbiaKnit--I like the company but those big cotton caps are crap

    I looked at Highland, but it's a little bit more than I want to spend - I'm talking like $30. I've bought milsurp but it's too small for my head, and I'd prefer something with a chunky fisherman pattern. I might hav to resort to J Press.

    I was going to recommend J.Press. Sounds like you're not too enthusiastic about their stuff, but I like Press.


    From thrift brag thread. If there's anything left I say this is pretty damn sweet.

    Oh don't get me wrong I've been keeping an I on J. Press, but for some reason I can't bear to bring myself to spend $50.

    How is the sizing on this. Seems like the L is really a fairly slim M? Thoughts.

    in my experience they wern't overly slim, so I was a bit confused by the measurements.

    I have one of these in the overdyed plaid (it is basically almost black), I don't really like it all that much. The fabric tends to not lie flat near the zipper, etc.

    Hmm, tempted to take a shot at that A+F coat, but I'm not too sure on it.
