    Nope. Sorry. Mid-late 80's US stuff, used my Special Forces and navy seals. Green label with black text is a good sign it is't the good stuff, as that style military labels came into use in the early-mid 90's, I think. Most will just have a small black stamp on the inside collar area that will say something like US-M (US Medium) or A-S (Asian Small).

    This last page is just reinforcing my decision to stay away from militaria as I know virtually 0 about it.

    Interesting market. Is this camo being sold to streetwear people, or more of a military collecting thing? Who is buying "the good stuff"?

    That may be a porcelain box. If so has some value but with the Exxon logo I am not quite sure.

    Probably should be some marks on the bottom.

    No marks on bottom. Handshake on the front makes me think it's from the merger. Ah well, it was $1. Very least it will hold some shit! Looks great as well.

    First, I apologize for the lousy picks. I am trying to get some stuff done before leaving on a trip Thursday for a car auction and mini Thriftcation in Raleigh, North Carolina.

    A few finds:

    Found this a little while ago, but hadn't taken pics yet.

    Vintage Cooper Flight Jacket -- not military issue. Its a reproduction. But, it is pretty cool anyway.

    Canali Staple Gray Suit (super 120s) 40R

    AND for those folks that find that nice suits are priced WAY too high in thrift stores, I thought I would share the thrift price on this.

    Next is an interesting Tuxedo. I usually avoid Tuxedos unless its a Top Tier name. But, this had a Shawl Collar and it looks spectacular! Custom made in Hong Kong (?) even came with the hanger!

    Next is a Zanella SC -- with Peak Lapels, Ticket Pocket, and a WILD design.

    A NC Warmup Suit with the pants! I can't figure out if this awful or good. I mean the style is awful, but is either worth nothing or good money.
