    I thought I remembered someone finding a very similar jacket! This thread moves so fast these days so I couldn't remember exact details. You're right, it's a killer jacket!
    I actually passed it onto a fellow SFer at cost + time for my gas/time. I've had members do this to me a handful of times and I thought I'd repay the favor. :satisfied:

    I bet if he lived in New York or San Francisco he could have got more.

    Found some Florsheim Imperial Longwings today SZ 10 1/2 D. Too small for me. [​IMG] But still cool ! They have the green stitching, but they're not shell. Wasn't somebody wondering about that? Anybody know what year these are from?

    ^^ I would have jumped for joy if I paid $13 for mine. I paid quite a bit more. But Willis & Geiger leather, ya know? Usually I scoff at higher prices. In this case I took the deal. In the greater aspect it was still a steal.

    I probably would've paid more for mine as well. Willis & Geiger seems to have more cachet than most of these heritage brands for some reason, but any made in the US mil-spec jacket is well worth the money. Hell, I've seen wool/poly J Crew and Gap pieces priced twice as much. I'm still waiting for that magical day when I find a Barbour or Belstaff jacket in my size in a thrift. That will be the most joyous day of them all.

    In the last few days I have run into a few London Fog lined trenches, with a zipper, for $20-25. Anyone have any thoughts on how to approach these, orwhat I should be looking for with an eye towards flipping?

    Fraying at the top and bottom of the knot and the area where it was slid up and down. The tie was crushed as well, I don't think I would ever have gotten the wrinkles out- it was no longer flat, kind of crumpled up where the knot sat.

    I'm tempted to go back and get the tie to show you, but unless I'm going back for some other reason before next week's visit, I don't think that'll happen. Though it might still be there.

    I thought I was seeing a delayed double post! Now I feel better.
