    Pretty sure it must be his. Some quick digging shows Vice Admiral Paul Pritchard Blackburn Jr starting at Annapolis in 1926 and graduating from the Naval Academy in 1930. He went on to lead the 7th Fleet in 1965 in the Vietnam War. More info here

    And here

    Thanks again for the help, I really appreciate it! Finding these pieces of history is one of the main reasons I love thrifting

    Haven't seen much love for Cantarelli lately, but this one for BG was $4.99, canvassed and a soft-ish Napoli shoulder, and adds to the collection.

    POP ON REDWING HERITAGE! Paid up at $44, but still plenty of meat on the bone.

    There was also some N&F, Jeanshop and Rag & Bone that I didn't grab due to slim margins or flaws. $40 for the lot.

    Found these little guys, but don’t know if I overpaid at $3-4 apiece. (Personal use). The Polo is definitely old and smells great, so I was stoked about that.

    The rest include Guess, Armani, Gucci, Givenchy, Moschino, Shalimar (lol), the Lagerfeld my grandfather wore in the 80s, and a couple different Chanel bottles I hope are real.

    Spent half an hour smelling stuff with a French lady at this little antique shop I found and became dizzy.
