    Definitely buy these! Vintage Brooks Brothers OCBDs with the unlined collar and original collar roll are highly prized among mid-century fans.

    Anywhere from '64 to '93. Collar style might help.

    This is the highlight of my meanderings so far today. Yellow tag, well worth the price I paid.

    Ohhhhh? Can I see the labels? Not the dog but of the shoooz.

    Made in Japan Evisu is pretty damn rare in thrifts. Are they numbered 1 on the patch? I would cop Levi's Engineered jeans if they are selvedge and made in Japan.

    Will find out tomorrow and post pics as well. I definitely checked for a Made In Japan tag on the Evisu, they also had a pair of Made In USA ones, as well.

    It's a farm coat not a shirt, but I'll get some pictures up either tonight or tomorrow afternoon. Thanks for the input!

    Yes, this. Typhoid jones has sold shirts of similar vintage for well over $100 each. If I find BB shirts with punch tags they are instakop, always.

    This is a noob-ish question, but I'm not super into denim. Is made-in-Japan selvedge ever a bad idea at, like, thrift prices (under ten bucks)? I guess some of the really extreme stuff (weird detailing) might not fly?

    About 2-3 weeks to get it to that point. I went unshaven from November 1st (No-Shave November) until early January and it was in full fledged lumberjack mode. The wife made me trim it. I admit it was getting a bit out of hand. Just too lazy to shave now. I like not having to shave every day or three.
    Definitely. Only found one ever. They are amazing ties.
    :slayer:
    I'd guess mid-60's to early 70's. Just guessing based on the "Made in USA" at the bottom of the label which I haven't seen on many Pendleton stuff prior to the mid 70's and the dry cleaning tag style looks like 60's-early 70's. Here's my favorite finds from yesterday: Vtg unworn Redhead hunting jacket. Canvas. I love this brown on brown duck camo pattern. Need Supply did a collab with Rogue Territory a few years ago and did a shirt and pants in this pattern. I missed out. :( This will make up for that, though. [​IMG] [​IMG] J Crew Moon Tweed Norfolk (I think?) hunting jacket. Suede elbow patches. Super cool. 42 R [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I'm gonna go for a big bet... a valuable watch, or a wallet, complete with cash and cards, OR the tag of a super-heavy hitting bespoke house.

    Please keep my hometown in your thoughts. The Columbia mall is about ten minutes from where I grew up. My parents left the mall about two minutes before this started. Feeling extremely lucky this morning.

    E thrifted Malverns (made with a Nordstrom label) arrived today. A few paces short of NOS. Available, just a hair too big for me. 11D on the 202.
