    Didn't thrift for 4 days until today and was starting to get the shakes. Was able to hit a few stores today and got my fix. All from today:

    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Can someone confirm that these are a) bison and b) made by Cheaney? No other decipherable markings, although I believe I can almost make out "English Shoes" as the last two words of footbed label.

    HAAALP ME PLZ!

    Does anyone know anything about this Charvet 100% silk shirt?
    ebay sold items does not yield anything.
    Google doesn't have much either about silk shirts by Charvet.
    Anyone come across one before?

    Alright, finally home from work so I can post a couple pictures. Like I said earlier, I've used my meager internet skills and not come up with much info so any help would be hugely appreciated! Been looking for a knee length overcoat and this one certainly fits the bill!

    Yep, nice shirts. One of my favorites. Far better than the Gitman. MOP buttons, nice fabrics, handwork etc.

    Agreed. Hand attached sleeves, hand-sewn button holes, crow's foot stitched buttons, thick MOP buttons and the button down collar on one I thrifted has an excellent roll.

    From yesterday's sales and a quick stop today:

    Dammit, @Nataku, you've set me to educating myself on fleece. This one was cheap and made in USA, so I kopped. Worth it? [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Woolrich, Mason’s, Vineyard Vines, and Gustin. The Mason’s is tagged M, but large, and available I nabbed it because their chinos are great quality, and this feels pretty good too. The other shirts are N/A.
    [​IMG]

    This shirt is also available, and I bought it for the “Made in USA”. Main tag has been removed. Can anyone recognize the TM initials on the back of the size tag?
    [​IMG] [​IMG]


    N/A1972 Pea coat. I’ll replace the front button with one from inside.
    [​IMG] [​IMG]


    N/A Abercrombie SC with cool plaid details at collar and flaps. Made in Japan—is that a good thing w Abercrombie?
    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    The first two Faconnable/Cantarelli SCs I picked up ended up having bad holes. I’m hoping I didn’t miss any damage on this one. N/A.
    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    N/A (as if you care) Zegna Trofeo, hard three, dual exhaust. Someone will buy this.
    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    BB Makers X 2 and Stefano Ricci, all N/A.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    NWT N/A VV. Unfortunately, the bottom hems are covered in thrifts store dust. Hopefully it'll brush off so I don't have to wash them.
    [​IMG]


    Last of all, this book about how cool Britain looked while plundering the globe and generally being assholes.

    @Tyrone MacStiophain, is there a Polaretec tag anywhere on that fleece? Looks early 90s to me.
