    According to Wikipedia 1968-1987, and that is the extent of my knowledge on the subject.

    bill bros was manufacturer of the g1 from 1968 to 1987 so it's not terribly old. I would guess it's around 1975 based on the tag being fabric.

    ran a few errands, stopped by one place. a couple of interesting items among the other shit:

    wilson and stafford driver cap -- avail (in 7 1/4)
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]


    And this I have no fucking clue what it is. I basically grabbed it because it was full silk. Instincts lead me to wimmenz; but the buttons are how a man's blazer will be. NA for now as I'm digging more info on it. Judging from the lapel shape and gorge height (ie the height of the notch); if this was for a man, it definitely isn't recent.

    edit: probably for a man, put it on a mannequin and no woman would fit those shoulders [​IMG]

    Thanks for all the feedback on my question about longer/thicker ties! You all gave me some great ideas!

    [/quote] Kansai yamamoto is a very famous fashion designer. He was pretty big in the 60s especially with women's fashion. Not sure what he has been doing recently. Don't know too much about his men's line. Saw a flannel shirt at a flea market in kyoto but was made in China so left it. Lol https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kansai_Yamamoto

    Wanted to give out a public shout out to @drlivingston for the proxy on the Canon lens, truly a gentleman as his namesake. Not only was it even better than he described it, his packaging blew me away. This thing could have withstood a hurricane, earthquake and a tornado with a tsunami thrown in and arrived unscathed.

    Thanks again, and I definitely owe you one!

    Yep and he is in just as good of shape as I am. He's always quick to remind me that he can still bench press more than me (32yrs old and former college athlete)!
