Dear Folks:

This is the listing for a tweed sack coat I am selling. It's a trad item from the time of LBJ or early Nixon, I reckon.

I like to research the labels but this one is in a cursive so elaborate that I am not sure what the letters actually are. Gort M Leed? That gets zilnch on google, so it must be something else.

Sharper eyes?

Tried that too. No google hits that are clothing related.

If it's RTW, which it is, there was company, and some record of something. Or other people are offering pieces for sale somewhere. Gort M Leed/Reed isn't giving anything.

Not if you want a natural shoulder.

Of course, Smithers, of course.

Mr. Burns: [about bringing Marge along on their voyage] What do you think, Smithers?
Smithers: I think women and seamen don't mix.
Mr. Burns: We know what you think.
