    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.

    Why would you not want the juice though? That's the best part!

    Jordan Brand and Levi's did a collab in 07-08ish. Selvedge 501 and a Jordan 1, I think. Was like $500 for both :/
