    Not Nataku, but I'll give it a shot. Usually you want to be looking for the brown label stuff, that's the good good vintage. That being said, I've never seen black label made in the USA, so that must be from the cusp of when they moved manufacturing overseas. I think your friend did good, black label is not as desirable as brown, but made in the USA makes up for that I think. :foo:

    @barrelntrigger I am immensely proud to be a part of the Down to earth Japanese street culture. and even more happy for you, that you could experience so much of it. Your enthusiasm is a passport to the real Japan. and i am glad your adventure continued after you left my 'hood. You now really understand the scene here more than many could imagine.

    enjoy every minute.

    Spot on! Brown label puffers are the most desirable. Still, at thrift prices that piece would be worth grabbing. No idea about the logo/patch. Probably a short lived ski-centered collection. That piece is probably mid 80's.

    @barrelntrigger. Man, seeing those pictures makes me want to go back to Japan so bad. Sadly it'll be at least another 4 years until the kid(s) will be old enough to handle an overseas flight.

    I generally avoid half off days like the plague, but I was in the neighborhood so what the hell. A few things were surprisingly still on the rack, even at midday.

    Ludlow, vintage McNeils that say nail-less, but clearly feature nails, including the biggest nail I've ever seen in a shoe. Seriously, it's huge.

    eBay tells me this is worthless, but for personal use, why not. 100% cotton, made in Italy, chunky black cable knit for $2?

    Not to disagree with Spoo (who knows MUCH more about exotic skins than I do), but I think it might be bison.

    Retail on those St. John's is HUGE. My wife has found a few pieces and and bought and sold a few. She has found that if you find a suit (both pieces), you struck gold, but the other stuff doesn't sell anywhere near what it should.

    I have been busy with my actual work lately and haven't had as much time to thrift and less time to post my finds. I am trying to catch up. Here are some recent finds from the last couple weeks. This represents about a 1/4. (All available unless noted that I bought it for myself and even then, it might be available).

    Group Shot:

    [​IMG]


    A Mint (but a bit wrinkled) Zanella.

    [​IMG]


    This was for me. Its totally unstructured. Fabric feels very nice. But, I have never heard of the brand. It will make a nice casual SC.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    A vintage Colorado Rockies Jersey

    [​IMG]

    North Face Hoodie but I thought since it is about Hoodie weather, it might be easily flippable.

    [​IMG]

    A great Long Sleeve Harley Shirt with Graphics all down the sleeves.

    [​IMG]

    Another HD shirt. These always do well if I am patient.

    [​IMG]

    I got fooled by this one. It is not a Harley shirt. I grabbed it in haste.

    [​IMG]

    Tommy Denim jacket with big LOGO on the back! Yes!

    Size Medium

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Not sure if this is a great find or not. New York guys, are these bespoke?

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Burberry Blazer Fodder

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I do like always like the Burberry buttons. These were a little different. Most of the ones I have seen are just gold, these have a silver face and the rest is gold. Sorry for the crappy I-Phone pics.

    [​IMG]

    Robert Talbott Seven Fold
    Super Trad BB Rep Stripe
    Ernie Dildo Na

    [​IMG]

    I just liked this. Its an antique Stanley Square and Ruler with Rosewood handle. After I bought it, I looked it up and realized its very flippable.

    [​IMG]

    A Seiko box to put a prior Seiko find in to flip! It was 25 cents, but I do have to clean off the avon goop that got on it.

    [​IMG]

    Vintage T with 737 graphic (they made them here in Wichita -- the PLANES not the Ts.

    [​IMG]

    Old Guy Field and Stream Jacket. Not exactly a Harrington Jacket, but still nice.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    This is a POP for me! I have been looking for anything from Johnston Woolen Mills. Its not the awesome buffalo plaid shirt or Jacket, but its a very heavy and very nice Coat with hood!

    Size 42 Outdoor Hunting/ Hunting Coat
