Lots of Long Wing Blucher's to add to my personal collection, and a pair of boots. Maybe I overdid it, but they all looked so cool, I couldn't pass them up.

Top row, left to right: Imperial Famous Barr ?, O'Sullivan, Russell Moccasin Co. Boots

The one's you call O'Sullivan are Mason Executive Imperials. At least the ones on the bottom are. O'Sullivan is the maker of the heel.

Where’s the good ol’ bloke @Purplelabel been hiding?!
Barbour. Wax. Vintage. NOS. That get you here? Haha. Trying to figure out the vintage of this. Everything I’m finding online says pre-1994, pre-1990. Couldn’t find any dates on attached paperwork.

also trying to figure out if it’s Olive or Sage, as it looks like Barbour has used the Apple approach and used the same name for various shades of colors (space gray can be 1 of like 6 different shades, haha). I get that the colors fade with wear as well but the internet seems divided and the style number doesn’t lead me anywhere.

I’m getting ready to list this as I have to financially justify my recent jacket acquisition from our resident grail magnet Lord Nataku. I’m trying a new “one in, one out” philosophy to keep my hoarding reduced.

First of all, I am extremely jealous. Supremely jealous and annoyed.

Secondly, the three royal warrants came in around the 80s, and 1960s and earlier coats have two, or even just one. Does this one have "Barbour" stamped on the buttons? That would indicate 1980s.

My father in law's closet has become my thrift store. We wear the same size jacket, and the trousers are workable - typically, a good suit will need about $200-275 in tailoring. Until he retired, buying and wearing high end men's clothing was one of his hobbies. He has handed off a half dozen suits and blazers - Oxxford, Ermenogildo Zegna, Canali, Brooks Brothers, Arthur & Fox, and a few other brands. I was about to replace a number of older Jos. A. Bank and Brooks Brothers suits. The difference in quality is noticeable.

Some recent stuff, haven’t gotten out much in the last few weeks.
Trussini is everywhere in philly. Resale sucks and I wind up picking up something every year and wind up regretting it.
RG is awful, if it doesn’t sell I’m done with the brand forever.
Vince are for personal, $5 alternative to Ann D.
Eskandar is a cashmere flannel.
Crockett and Jones were worn maybe once? What are these, correspondent shoes?
After buying a filson off a thread member because I hadn’t thrifted one in 6 years, now I’ve found a 256 and a 257 in about 6 weeks.
