    Found a khaki 1970's Gucci Mackintosh jacket today. Needs a bit of TLC but a very cool find nonetheless.

    I've been lurking this thread for a while, but haven't had much reason to post until now. I've had some pretty good luck finding shoes lately - Ferragmo, Magli, AE, Hanover and some more casual Sebagos, Made in the USA Bass, etc. Sadly, none of them are my size, but might be of some use to people here. Feel free to PM if you're interested in making a trade or buying them. I can also provide more photos and details. Here are the first two pairs.

    Bruno Magli 'Lugano' split toe loafers - Black - Size 9.5 M - Made in Italy - These are in great condition except for a slight gouge in the sole, some creasing in the toes and a few other minor creases, but no cracking. The soles are in great shape too.

    Salvatore Ferragamo loafers - Black - I'm not too sure what size these are. I'm guessing a 9 but they were worn just enough to rub away the sizing and numbers printed on the inside. They are 11.25" Long, 3.75" wide at their widest point. There is some creasing in the toebox and there is some slight cracking in the leather by the sole near the toe on the left shoe. Otherwise these are in great shape.

    Those plastic shoe trees have been placed improperly into the shoes.

    Been keeping up with this thread as usual and feeling jealous of all the great finds, and I finally broke a long drought with a capnwes-esque haul of vintage cufflinks (all Anson, Hickok and Swank). I still have zilch for french cuff shirts in my wardrobe, so all of these are likely available. Make me an offer (or trade offer, see my deets).

    2 nice burgundy/maroon round glass with gold-tone, 1 horse and bridle, and one with retrievers heads over MOP inlay (!!!)

    [​IMG]

    couple sets of art-deco inspired (one with matching tie-clip, one with little rhinestones, another with crowns and ?)

    [​IMG]

    couple more silver-tone art-deco sets and gold-tone set with matching tie-clip in tigers-eye (oh yeah!)

    Not crazy 70's vintage looking but has really cool oversize angled flap pockets.. Has a leather "Gucci" label. Had a neat Hermes-esque chain link pattern print on the inside back where the Gucci label was sewn onto. Made in Scotland by Macintosh - rubberized cotton. Guy I bought it from worked in the fashion industry for years. I bought the infamous Polo cashmere bear sweater from him last year. He purchased the jacket from Neiman Marcus in the late 70's - he thinks 77 or 78. It's at my brother's house currently and he said he can't find a size tag on it so I'll measure it tomorrow. From what I remember it looked to be about a Small-Medium.

    I went to six stores today and all I bought was a made in Italy 4-fold tie. Does anyone know who made it?
