    ^ DAMN that is a fine jacket, looks like the leather has a magnificent hand! Talon hardware? Also: I thought you were closer to a size 40?

    Correct on all counts, and the leather is more supple than most I have felt today. I am a 40, but dont forget, this was the 50s, fit was different back then. It fits a little big on me but with a sweater underneath, its perfect. :inlove:

    Whoa, that paisley velvet creation broke the Internets. I've never seen anything like it, definitely a jacket for drinking wine and romping around.

    Battle of the paisley jackets. :fence:

    Untagged but certainly cashmere, made by Angelo Roma: tailor to 70's-era Bond. (http://thesuitsofjamesbond.com/?p=1494)

    Ticket pocket and insane lining, matched inside of the pockets.

    This belongs to a bulletproof piece of handcrafted French outerwear kids.

    nary a pill, a hole, a torn seam, dead mint. :inlove:

    i collect goyard and LV trunks, they are a (expensive as fuck) passion, got about 10 of them so far and stick exclusively to those, maybe a Moynat I would consider. Usually stay away from the american brands, but for $15 each... I mean, I cant say no, can I? the big one is gigantic, almost as tall as me. travel dates from 1922 and some I need to look at with a blacklight later.

    the little humper has to be 1850-1890

    Will get better pics of the insides at some point, but its the full rig with the drawers on one side, removable suitcase, and 15 hangers and a fold out valet.

    Thrifted for $15 each. :slayer:

    Spoo, that steamer looks amazing! I'd guess 1880's or 1890's by the font style and such of their logo plate.

    :happy: Wow, the person who owned that must have been quite the wealthy fellow. An incredible find, glad to see that you saved them! What do you do with your collection of trunks, do you use them for travel?

    ^ They are too cool for school.

    Basically they just piss my wife off, but for "practical" purposes, my daughters toy chest is a 1920s Goyard steamer, our bedlinens rest in a LV grande steamer, and a few other things.. :)

    Wow spoo that's really cool to hear about ur collection. My father and mother have a few LV steamers and a single LV hatbox in their collection. They've had them for years, not really adding to them, but certainly keeping them around. My mother also has another old steamer from the mid 1800s that I know she uses for out of season clothing storage. I need to find out what that one is.
