    ...I wouldn't go so far as to vouch for them, but, I had the same pair in suede leather a while back...though yeah I'd want to see the stamp on the footbeds.


    Me too - I need a single Alden boot-sized dust bag, if anyone is holding. Or a pair of bags is fine as well.


    I just sold one made in Canada, but it was a women's wool toggle duffle coat, not leather.



    Slow day at the thrifts today, so I hit an estate clearance sale (bunch of stuff that never sold at the original estate sales, marked 80% off) - not much there either:

    Couple pictures of this guy for $2 each. Can't decide if he's nuts, or these were his head shots when trying out for a part in The Wizard of Oz, or was a snake oil salesman, or what...

    Looks like a cadet coat possibly. If actually from West Point that'd be pretty spiffy. Dont know how $piffy, but I think it's cool.

    I'm going to be in Philadelphia for a couple of days next week. I'm staying in the Rittenhouse Square area. If anyone wants to meet up, or has any recommendations (thrift or otherwise) please send me a PM.

    Thanks!

    Had a few minutes of down time this afternoon and made a couple of timelines for some of the major fashion houses. I'm not sure how helpful they will be to anyone, but here are a couple of examples. I made several others to help me keep some of the dates straight.

    These are the creative directors for their respective years. Let me know if I made any mistakes.
