I thought so too at first, started to do the happy dance, then saw these.
Sent you a PM.
sneak peak for the ladees. More pics some day
Those look minty
they are mang, they are
Givenchy Nouvelle Boutique. Probably silk but could be a very fine rayon. Paper content tag is cut out. Looking at the range of prices for this vintage 80s line, I'm not sure how to price it. I've seen them from $40 on Etsy to over $1K on private websites. None, of course, with ladybugs. I don't know if that's a selling point or not.
Sierra Designs 600 powerfill down. My size. As if I REALLY need another coat. Or need this kind of warmth in the Pacific Northwest! Available.
Icelandic Design cardigan. Unique buttons, fabulous collar and cuffs. They've really branched out from their beginnings as Icelandic style sweaters. Now anything goes. Not my size. Available.
I also got a Solumbra shirt. Definitely a keeper.
Ah, nothing special. Late 60's-mid 70's duck hunter camo. This pattern is desirable on certain pieces (t-shirts, parkas, button down shirts. etc), but the actual hunting jacket and such like what that appears to be are a tough sell. Good pass.
All burgundy label and all made in the USA.
Thank you sir! Didn't look cool in any way, but it did look different than anything I had seen to date, so had to check.
Is there such a thing as Woolrich WM that you pass on? I saw a non-USA-made gray WWM coat today and passed because it looked too plain, large, and was made overseas. Good pass?
Where was it made? Are you sure it was WWM and not the John Rich and Bros. label (which makes their stuff overseas) which says "Woolrich Woolen Mills on it? The John B. Rich line is pricey but not WWM pricey.
POP - M available
These look slightly off to me @SpooPoker care to set me straight?
no - some rando brand that also has that weird ticket pocket expression
any info on the brand? handwork everywhere....
Is there any clever way to find out if a pair of jeans are selvedge jeans without looking inside the cuffs of each pair, one at a time? Do you focus on specific brands? Do you search through them from the front (to read the button), or back (to look at the patch, if any?)
I have not found any.
