    Gant might be Mabro. Not sure.

    Also, making one is a cool idea, but if you want to go the easy route, just kop the next cheap pair of black tassels you see at the store and yank one off. I have replaced a tassel, but at the time I did not have a leather needle set. I'd recommend getting one. You can find them for cheap at craft stores. MUUUUUUUUUUUCH easier to use than a standard needle and thread, even a large guage needle.

    Jesus, hard to keep up with this thread when you don't have a chance to read it every day. Good stuff lately dudes! I haven't really had time to get out myself much recently, though it looks like SWB has it on lock down, hahaha. Here's what's partially been taking up my time. I'm making an overcoat, trousers and a top for a pattern making class.
    First fitting in cheap wool felt.\

    Shoulder articulation rendered in super 150's and cashmere that 330ck sent me a while back, the elbows will also be pleated.

    And the final self fabric which is a super textured wool.

    Anyways, cheers guys! I can't wait to get back out in the field.

    Found a neat array of vintage items the past couple days.

    Firstly, I finally found shell locally! Only found one other pair ever, and it was out of town. Damn it's just near extinct here. Super happy.

    They are Brooks Brothers. Definitely older

    Sole says "Brooks Brothers New York"

    Vintage Nike's. They're called the Air Structure Triax from 1995. I think new, maybe worn once.

    [​IMG]

    Still new orange tab Levi's. Definitely unworn. Really stiff and still has staples on the back pocket where the tag was.

    [​IMG]

    Ballantyne is a rare find for me. Nice vintage cashmere cardigan.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    POP on my first vintage Big E item. Denim jacket. Pretty sweet patina on this bad boy.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Might just be my favorite sport coat find. Full canvassed, triple patch pocket in a classic tartan.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    This has no labels, but is completely hand tailored. There was no way I could leave it behind at its price.
    Nice triple patch velvet jacket

    [​IMG]

    Awesome vintage tweed suit. 3 roll 2, sack cut, hook vent. Real ivy style.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Oldest LL Bean item I've found.....and it fits my huge sized head. Keeper!

    I would guess these are made by Alden. Are these available for sale? Exactly my size.

    Where is everyone finding these treasures? Consignment? Thrift? Goodwill?
