    Got Polo brown cords. No luck on a set of trousers to match an untagged, unlabeled midnight blue DJ, which didn't fit me and was a little dingy anyway.

    Needle in a haystack - I know, but I figure it wouldn't hurt putting it out there. I've been after this duck camo t-shirt for years. Literally. Found one 5 years ago but in a M. I need a L or XL. Made by Duxbak. It dates from 1982-1983 so chances are slim. Still, worth a shot. I'll pay very good monies if someone finds one. :)

    My last dog sweater thread derailment for now. I just finished the Arc'Teryx. It was a women's small that had been washed too many times. I kept the collar, used the fabric from the middle part of the back, sewed on an inner front pocket, and attached the hang tag.

    Thanks for all of the compliments. These sweaters are actually fairly easy to make though. My sewing experience is limited to sewing 5 dog sweaters.

    Best one yet. How does it attach in the front? Or is it a pull-over?

    Fortunately for us, our dog is big enough to wear human sized sweaters.

    Dog could carry its own poop-bags and whatnot in that pocket. Genius.

    Thanks for the offer Wes! Sadly I already have a couple of those. Great pieces but they take up quite a bit of hanger space!

    anyone know anything about Warren K Cook? I've seen a few pieces, they seem like quality, but haven't pulled the trigger until today:

    and looks like it was worn all of 5 times in the intervening decades.
