    Anyone here have any info on Tartleton Sports Jackets? 100% polyester shell made in Japan, found a very heavy tie bar in one pocket and a matchbox from someone's wedding in 1983. Any info would be much appreciated! Pics later.

    Today -

    A real “blazer”, likely from the 50s, and a tremendous, heavy fur muff, likely 1930s. Look at that pattern matching on the jacket and the triple patch. So awesome.

    Is it a US Navy officer's Overcoat? Is there an insignia on the buttons?
    Yes, it could be bespoke.

    books and tweed, you could always change the buttons to horny ones if the coat otherwise fits you and suits your needs. Metal buttons are always a bit showy.

    Spoo, mehhh...I'm not feeling that dropped, dated breast patch pocket on that true blazer. Those Chipp jackets are The Right Stuff, though.

    That's a US navy officer bridge coat. I have one just like it, surprisingly in 38L, too :fistbump: I had the sleeves shortened a little bit and the zip for the lining taken out. Who cares if they're aggressive -- they're warm.

    Thanks! I checked the buttons, and they are indeed navy - just like these http://img1.etsystatic.com/008/0/7981441/il_340x270.472945299_g80g.jpg in a nice brass.

    Spoo - everything in your post is incredible. :D

    Here's a true "Gun Club Check" by Dunn & Co of jolly olde England. It's done in a very typical Anglo-cut and is even more beautiful in person! It's probably 60's/70's though part of its lure is its timeless cut and styling. 40 Short.

    Picked up a couple pairs of 100+ year old boots today. Both makers, from St Louis were closely rivaled and related and eventually joined forces in 1911 to form the International Shoe Co (later Interco)

    Roberts, Johnson & Rand, probably only worn a handful of times.

    ^^^^^ Amazing!!! I actually had a saved eBay search for similar boots, but it seems that no one of that period had feet bigger than a size 8, so I abandoned hope long ago.

    Yea, that's exactly what I was finding. I did come across a pair of French Shriner bal boots from the 30's, but dude wanted around $600 for them. :confused: I bought some Carmina's instead.
