1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Only pickup today but it's a good one. My first polo polo coat. Terrible outside pics. Too cold to get anything better. Not staining on the front just sun glare. Quote]

    Not a polo coat, more of a bridge coat, but looks hella nice.

    Polo coat would have flapped patch pockets and a martingale belted rear.

    It has the martingale belted back but you are right about the pockets. I still love it!

    @Fueco or anyone else who might know, what exactly do I have here? Can't figure out the R logo on the sleeve, is that just corporate?

    Hm, I thought Regulator was only fleece but looking at eBay I found some that have the same R logo so you must be right. This is 85/15 nylon/poly

    Mint reissue of the The Names - Swimming. Apparently this is considered to be "cold wave" whatever the hell that means. Plus the first Grizzly Bear album on cd.

    I did, but most of those models are a different shape or have arms, I didnt see any like this, unless it was a Pollack, which could have been recovered. Hmm.

    @SpooPoker Looks like more of just a generic office chair and not a collectible/designer/mid century piece unfortunately.

    Probably a regulator fleece lined shell. Can you dig out the style number from the tag? Sty#####

    Didn't see the second tag...it's STY 83680, Division Jacket Regulator Series maybe? Oh, and not fleece-lined.

    ran some errands today, also copped this:

    [​IMG]
    ancient steerhide/horsehide cafe racer. small but weighs a ton and jerky as fuck.
    no label, i expect the lining is non-original

    [​IMG]
    the shoulders and yoke are reinforced, front and back. elbows as well.

    [​IMG]
    crown zip i'm guessing from 40s. works great.

    [​IMG]
    tailored sleeves, actually the reinforced portions seem to be added on after the fact.

    [​IMG]
    gripper zippers at the sleeves. work great.

    [​IMG]
    best part... between the shoulder blades you can see stitching from old patches... there are actually 2 overlapping sets. one says:

    51
    Y
    the other says:

    13
    Y

    i think the yoke reinforcement is from some other donor jacket, cause one of the panels has ghost patches as well.
    might be as early as the 30s or as late as the very early 50s. i'm don't believe it is completely homebrew but it is strange that it has no pockets inside or out, and it appears to have been heavily chopped and pimped. i have no idea who made the original jacket but i really can't imagine somebody homebrewing a horsehide or steerhide jacket. in any case, it has apparently been purpose tailored and used for competitive riding. nice to find.

    Anything interesting happen in the last 2k posts? Caught flu for the first time ever which turned into pneumonia and completely knocked me on my ass for the past month. Also arranging purchase of a new home, with a third floor that is going to make an amazing Thrift Eyrie. Natural light all day long, going to make for some great product photos.
