    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Anyone got a link to ID the age of Woolrich? No Made in USA tag or any other tags than shown. Late 70's maybe?

    Whatever the age, its a great color for the holidays

    Alright, here is my stuff from the last two days. First up, two grail shirts for me. Antique BB, one is 15.5 (my size) and the other is 16 but both from the same guy and both fit the same? Both also feature the unlined collar! :slayer: Anybody care to chime in on the dates on these? I guessing 60's based on the tag, and they are as soft as your favorite t-shirt.

    Rooster knit for myself.

    Vintage Gitman linen. Probably the nicest one of these I've found, tag says Gitman Gold and it has smokey mop's, size M, available
    [​IMG]
    Paul Stuart made in Italy in a sweet pattern, size L available
    [​IMG]
    Pal Zileri,18.5 I haven't been picking up shirts unless they are for myself or they are Brioni because I don't like fucking with them on the bay, but these were nice and dirt cheap so if anybody want's any of these last 3 PM me and you can have them for free plus shipping.
    [​IMG]
    Paul & Shark Yachting, made in Italy, British military style sweater, size XL. Never picked up anything by them before, and really only grabbed it because I've seen some of you guys pick up their stuff. That and it was also cheap, available.
    [​IMG]
    PRL, made in the USA, mint, goose down puffer in green. I'm pretty sure these are still in the stores. Size M, available.

    I was talking to Matty Long Legs about doing a trade involving his Gerry puffer last week, which ended up not working out, but low and behold, I found this today. It's not Kelly green and that is most certainly not the original hood, but it's my size and was only $4 :slayer:
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    I also found this, PRL pink and white striped spread collar. My size. I think I've got the button down's covered, so I've been looking to expand my spread collar game lately.
    [​IMG]
    And a quick fit pic involving a sweet LE wool tie I got from Concealed the other day, it's quickly becoming one of my favorites. Shirt is vintage BB, sweater is made in the US Eddie Bauer shawl collar.
    [​IMG]
    And finally, my wife loved both of the vintage Burberry trench coats I got her for her birthday. She's going to keep one regular length and have the other one shortened. It was interesting holding the two side by side and doing a comparison, as there are small differences between the them. Does anybody know of a website that dates vintage Burberry trench coats? My google skills have not proved fruitful.

    That Gitman isn't vintage but is actually very recent. That is a current label still sold in stores, so it can't be more than several years old. Nice find! Score on that Gerry parka too! It seems to be raining those lately in here...

    Thanks CD, digging those Bally sneakers.

    Ended picking up those crocodile skin Nettleton's to have a closer look at. Not sure what size they are (11.5 or 12?) and the soles definitely need a full resole but the uppers are in great condition. Available.

    I've been out of the game for the past 2 weeks but managed to hit 2 places today.

    Wes, I see your Cable & Co. shoes went for a nice bundle not too long ago. These are 7D and available for cost + shipping. If no one wants them, on to ebay.
    [​IMG]

    Pal Zileri loafers in 10. Never seen shoes from them before. Really supple leather, but with a super thick/sturdy sole with very little wear on them. Available cost + shipping.

    Two super fine pocket squares. No maker but says Made in England. Going into my collection.
    [​IMG]

    Canali SC, the one with the blue label, 3-button, single vent. Snazzy.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Samuelsohn SC, 2 button, single vent. Very english/rustic looking fabric, like a shooting jacket, but fabric made in Italy so feels like a dream.

    A couple things: Just to clarify, I am in New Hampshire, I can sort of see in rereading the original post that it could be inferred I was closer to the scene.

    We do stop in Newtown at the Blue Colony driving to NYC, and meet the finest truckers and bikers I-84 has to offer. It's just...how do you explain this stuff to a first grader, everyone' going to be talking about it Monday at their elementary school. And it's gotta be 50x worse for our colleagues from this thread down there. PEace and good vibes to you all down there.

    I am also glad you got the humor of my post. I had to post that picture after seeing the christmas sweater earlier, hahah
