    Great haul! That J. Crew is insane. Such a cool piece. That Loro Piana is crazy too. I've seen Loro Piana for Netjets cashmere ties, but never a jacket. Wow!

    The care label was just a generic label used on anything down that North Face made. They used it on their sleeping bags, parkas and vests. It's pretty much the same technique for all the down products.


    Nice haul! Score on those Huntsman shirts!

    Sadly the sweater isn't anything too crazy. Pretty common, worn by a lot of the branches of the military. They are very popular though. People love them and they are very warm. The reinforced areas make them great workhorses too. Your's likely dates from 78-81 but can't read the tag so I can't be sure. Maybe $20-$30 on the bay. Nick-named the "Wooly Pully"sweater. Don't ask where the name came from, I have no idea. Haha. Brigade Quartermasters made a version of this in the late 70's and it was one of their best sellers. It was called the Wooly Pully sweater and was labeled as such. It was made in England. I think they still sell them.


    Today was a day of near misses. Very sad.

    First up was this gorgeous solid gray birdseye suit. Canali Executive Collection 150's. Not cool enough? Well, it was a 3 piece! Cool factor achieved, right? Wrong. No pants anywhere. It was even hanging in the suit section, not the "blazer" section so the pants were likely there at one point. :fu:

    Second was this amazing vintage suit. I can't date union tags, but I'm pretty sure this ones dated from the 30's or 40's. It was in fantastic shape too. No moth holes, worn lining, etc. No pants. 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. :brick:

    Since there are requests happening tonight....

    Vinyl guys, if you see any albums by David Allan Coe or Bruce Springsteen (from Greetings up to and including Darkness), please give me a shout.

    Cash money or trades!

    I'll keep my eyes peeled.



    I know, right? I had you in mind when I put it into my cart. I remember you mentioning your vintage collecting a few days ago. Hurt me to put it back when my search for the pants came up empty.

    A Tribe Called Quest
    Andrew Jackson Jihad
    Bright Eyes
    Death Cab For Cutie
    Funeral Party
    Joel Plaskett
    La Dispute
    Portugal. The Man
    Say Anything
    The Format
    The Head and the Heart
    The Hush Sound
    Thrush Hermit

    Love JP and I saw Thrush Hermit in the early 90s. Great show!

    I think I have a Super Friendz album tucked away somewhere.

    I only know him from the album he did with Dimebag Darrel (think the band was called Rebel Meets Rebel). Mostly unforgettable except for this gem:

    If anyone comes across any obscure late 60's or early 70's acid/psychedelic stuff, I will pay you monies or trade you cool clothes.

    The Soft Machine
    Linn County
    West Coast Pop Experimental Band
    Dust
    Sir Lord Baltimore
    Silver Apples
    The Tangerine Zoo
    Love
    Gandalf
    H.P. Lovecraft
    Joe Byrd & The Field Hippies
    The Charlatans

    Pretty much anything that is weird looking, has strange song titles and features a bunch of crazy looking hippies on the front or back cover. :laugh:

    So glad they're back together again.



    Sooooo jealous. I was born in the wrong decade and the wrong country. He is by far my favorite musician. I've checked his website for years hoping he'd tour in the states close to me but I've had no luck. A road trip will be in order eventually.
