    My dudes:

    More than ever, I am now seriously in the market for top end shoes in the 10.5-11 size range, most especially in a cap or medallion toe in burgundy or oxblood. Fiddle waist, chisel toe.
    Will trade good stuffs.

    Aaaand. Go.

    ^^^^wow!!!!! It's crazy how many tailoring houses there used to be, all lost to the ages. I saw a couple of bespoke Chicago pieces today from the 50's. Beautiful stuff, tons of handwork, most too trashed to pickup. [​IMG] Still neat to see though.

    Isn't the GAC201-01-8101M version the 1991 re-release of the Cooper A-2 jacket?

    Ah, you are correct, when I originally googled it I couldn't find info on reproductions, only the differences between to civilian model and the pilot model. Thanks for the info!!

    Regardless, it is still an awesome find. Those things are becoming increasingly rare (and valuable)! [​IMG]

    coopers are nice a-2s. it should say the hide on the lower tag, mine is goat but i think they may have used horse as well, I'm not really sure.

    civvy versions lack the velcro strip on the chest for an insignia, fyi.

    I had to pry myself away from my first Julius_7 piece today. God damn was that hard. Any Street Couture peeps that take a 40-42 jacket, or a Julius 4. Hit me up. Goatskin black rider. Pics from today when my phone stops being dead.

    Been away for Art Basel week in Miami. Miami is a party town but Basel Week makes typical Miami look like a retirement community. I highly recommend the experience.

    Couple fits from Basel

    Jacket is my latest creation, completely unstructured, no fusing, canvas, padding, or lining anywhere.

    PS - Thriftmasee, I'm slacking. I am sorry. I will definitely make it worth your wait.

    I got my Thriftsmas gift and opened it (hopefully that's not too gauche), and I love it!

    Unfortunately, I have no idea who it is from! Going to post a fit pic in the Thrift Holiday Exchange thread, but feel free to PM me to take credit, my Canadian friend. :slayer:
