    The weekly trip to the Goodwill produced a small bounty. I have been looking to upgrade my navy sports coat and this Chester Barrie will do nicely. Dual vented, a fair amount of hand sown detail, and surgeon cuffs. Somehow my wardrobe is reaching an evolutionary stable state. Oh yeah i still want/need some boots.

    Not sure if serious. If so, no way. That's the best part. It's called the bark.

    No idea what model these are. They appear unworn but have no tags inside.

    Any insight on these @Nataku? Figured i should ask before the return period is over. Extremely heavy and the only marking says ERLA. So Swedish military, correct? I'd definitely rock these if they were my size

    You roll up to the Bronto Burger drive-in, the carhop hangs it on your car door, car flips over.

    Calling on the coin experts here.. no clue what I've got (I think they're coins), but worth the gamble at under a dollar each:

    Wow, color me amazed. I wonder if there's been a longitudinal study done on correlation between eating charcoal briquettes and incidence of cancer in the American south.

    Cool find from last week. Underpriced consignment. Anyone have any idea about what to call this jacket?

    I'd return em if you paid up and/or bought to sell (which it seems that's the case). Yes, Swedish military. I think 50's-60's. I've sold a few pairs and they all fetched around $30. They are built like tanks so they don't really wear out, thus they are all over. They sold them in Army Surplus stores for quite awhile too, which is how a lot of them ended up over here. I think you can still buy them from the Sportsmans Guide catalog for like $30.
