    I think so. I know the early Perfecto labels said steerhide on them.


    Agreed. :)

    It's in really nice shape as well.

    Somehow I forgot to post these. Robert Welch Pendulum. 18/10 Stainless Steel.

    So glad the winter stuff is coming out. My size so N/A This thing has a bunch of moth nibbles but when I brought it up to the SA, they basically gave it to me for free. The twill is so thick, I think I can fix them myself. I'll keep ya'll posted.

    What leftofthedial said. I've got a mid war version that I thrifted somehow in my size. I immediately sold my 80s peacoat. The wool is incredible on those.

    Why would someone make a spoon with a big hole in the middle? I've long been under the impression that the entire point of a spoon was to have a utensil without a lot of holes in it for small, unforkable morsels, and soup, and the like.

    Could be wrong, but that appears to be just a pierced serving spoon. For straining food out of liquid. Like dumplings and meat from a stew or the like.

    It could also be used as an olive spoon or an espresso spoon.
