    Well, I think this may have been my best day yet. Still jelly of @eazye's coat but I can't complain!

    First stop yielded some vintage Bostonian #8 shell longwings in excellent condition. Size 10 C. Fits TTS. Seriously considering keeping these and selling my Aldens but let me know if you can't live without them.

    Also, a goat skin LL Bean Flying Tiger A-2 with Thinsulate. Size small/38ish. Been looking for a decent leather coat and this thing fits really well. Not available for now.

    Then headed over to another spot and grabbed a few other things.

    Naked & Famous selvedge chambray slim guys, size 31. Probably keeping for summertime wear.

    [​IMG]

    Alden scotch grain PTBs in 11 B/D. Not sure of the last but seems like it may be Barrie. Available.

    [​IMG]

    And last, a made in USA RRL vest that I was pretty excited about. Size large, available for now.

    Not Nataku, but I'd venture a stab at 40's-50's. Also just learned a fun fact in that half of Ely & Walker is an ancestor of GWB/GHWB

    Fits more like a 40 at least it fits me, now I have to decide whether I want to keep it or not. Was bought in a discount so not true thrift.

    I keep forgetting you are expert in this too. Thank you. Whats GWB/GHWB? In NY you're talking about the George Washington Bridge lol.


    Agree. Its 1990 edition, I wish it was the 1953 one though! In any case, for $25, it works :)
