    Corpus makes some pretty cool stuff. I have a few pairs of jeans from them. SW&D type stuff, but not so coveted by the SF crowd as most of their stuff is made in China. Still, they have great cuts and styles. If it fits, hang onto it~

    The Corpus Sailor Pant.

    SC et all from yesterday. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] Functional cuffs,Fully canvassed. I forgot to look for the pants, i know..., I haven't been able to find out much about Renzi. So please tell me this is worth a shit ton of money... 43R
    [​IMG][​IMG] Outerwear jacket/SC hybrid from Rainforest? Is silk/cotton/linen blend and feels nice. Half lined, 2 small vents in back, unstructured. Figured someone would want this. It has 3 buttons, in front of the zipper... Taggged XL
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] Need I say More? 43 T [​IMG]
    [​IMG][​IMG] Never seen the silver background, im asuming this is OLD. 43 T
    [​IMG][​IMG] BB 40R
    [​IMG] Sammy 40S, keeping this one.

    So you just got a job on a crab boat, or you live in the Pacific Northwest and really want to up your vintage rain gear game? Here you go
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] Tagged S, however after trying it on, this has got to be a 1 size fits all item, and the S indicates short. It is full length on me at 5'8 and fits just fine as a 42S, but could work for someone a bit smaller or quite a bit bigger IMHO.

    That is sweeeeet. Fortunately for my wallet, Atlanta is experiencing, as ever, drought conditions (though it is raining right now).

    Having spent quite a bit of time in ATL, I know you guys have an unspoken monsoon season! Seriously, last time I was in town it rained on me for like 5/7 days :(. BTW ill prob be in your area before the end of summer, i'll be staying in buckhead and if you, or any of the other Atlanta guys are down, i'd like to meet up/thrift.
    Edit: HOLY SHIT! http://www.ebay.com/itm/VINTAGE-POL...C_Outerwear&hash=item519e70d4ba#ht_720wt_1165
    I am really, really hoping that isn't just an insane asking price, and its not because his is yellow...

    Heh, glad to see my signal put to use, though other posters were on it faster than me! Not terribly familiar with Corpus, though I do believe they are one of those brands often seen on Gilt. Quick internets research reveals that some of their startup funding came from Earnest Sewn so their heads are in the right place. Personally, not too into the mustard/muddy check, though I am a sucker for popovers. Something tells me the MiC provenance would make them a no go amongst SW&D elites.

    A few weeks ago I asked for help about this, but I think it got lost in a DM7 flurry of sorts... anyone know anything about this maker? Google gives me nothing.

    It belongs to this 3 piece (which is available to my thrift peeps for trades... about a 40-42R
