1. Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.

    There is a support thread if you have any issues.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Also as always, OFFERS ARE VERY WELCOME!

    Please PM with interest and offers!


    1) FILSON DOUBLE MACKINAW in Rare Blue and Black Plaid

    THE WINTER CLASSIC--You "Might as well have the best"!

    You all know what this is, so I needn't spend too much time describing its features.... although I will note that this is the discontinued and now highly sought-after Blue and Black plaid version of this jacket, which is becoming increasingly rare and fetching rather silly prices on ebay.

    From Filson's own description:

    Keep freezing hail, sudden sleet storms and Arctic blasts at bay in our heavyweight Double Mackinaw Cruiser. The key to this 100% wool coat is a one-piece cape sewn over our basic Mackinaw Cruiser style. Add to that four large utility pockets and hand warmer pockets in front, plus a full-width back map pocket that creates another full double layer. The result is breathable warmth that protects against wind, rain and snow. The button closure creates a simple yet effective storm flap and the full collar and button cuffs allow you to batten down the hatches. Average length in back; 31". Made in USA.

    FEATURES

    One piece cape over shoulders, upper back and sleeves creates two full layers of protection; 1 rear full width cruiser pocket with snap closures accessible from both sides.
    6 button front closure.
    4 large front pockets with snap flaps; 3 utility slots sewn over upper left front pocket; 2 hand warmer pockets under lower front pockets; 1 interior left chest pocket.
    Adjustable button cuffs.

    This jacket is in excellent condition, except that it does have a few minor moth nibbles; these affect only the surface nap, are not all the way through, and can only really be seen when you're looking for them. I have had this garment professionally dry cleaned recently by a specialist cleaner (Mayflower's of Princeton), and the cedar-stored it, so it's ready to wear. I would rate this as being in overalll Very Good condition owing to the nibbles!

    This really is an absolute steal at just $95 > 85, boxed and shipped in the CONUS--or offer!

    Measurements:

    Chest: 22 1/2 (measured across chest from armpit to armpit on the inner layer of wool, not the caping.)
    Sleeve: c. 34
    Shoulder: NA
    Length BOC: 29 1/2
    Length TOC: 32

    2) Boy's (33" chest, size 16 boy's) Single Mackinaw Shirt Jacket

    The green and blue plaid of this jacket is simply beautiful! Perfect for the smaller trad. or your son, this lovely Mackinaw was made by Sears, back when even Sears, Penney's, and the like were making things right. This is a terrific piece, and would be worn by either a boy or a smaller trad. It does have a small brown mark on the back--but with something like this, that just adds character! Naturally, this is made in the USA, and given the flaw is in very Good condition.

    Asking just $25, or offer, shipped in CONUS.
