    WOW! What a fabulous looking piece of sartorial art! Very close to my size too, me super jelly (jealous). Same boat as you though, rarely it drops below 55 during the day here, I can literally be year round in a tee. Even if it was 100bucks, I would have to leave it. Maybe I should move to a cooler climate just so I can enjoy some the clothes some you fellows can wear. Reality check: It would be fucking crazy to move for sake of wearing certain types of attire, what am I thinking .............

    Awesome score. That's a replica, no doubt. If it were OG, it wouldn't be that clean and would be worth a very large chunk of change. I just sold a Cockpit A-2 two days ago within 45 min of listing for $125 so you should do equally as well, if not better. My size tag was removed before I purchased it, maybe the same idea??

    So you're saying I'm crazy to think about moving to the UK to enjoy Barbour weather year round?

    Don't ask WWJD. Go the Nike route.

    +100
    I think the company was pulling the old switcheroo (rebranding a mens as a ladies), so just put it back to the way it should be.
    (Maybe they had a bunch of 36s that weren't moving so they got creative).

    Honestly this would be my route. That thing is insane and it would be a shame to watch it go for peanuts because it really doesn't look like something a woman would want to wear (none that I know of anyway) and some guys won't get over themselves to wear something that has a woman's size even if it is basically a men's jacket.

    If it zips like a men's and doesn't have a feminine cut, the only difference is a size number on a tag.

    Just a few things at a quick stop after work.

    My third or fourth piece of Filson seen in stores, a generally well made western-y shirt, unremarkable outside of the name. I still haven't found a Made in the USA Filson piece.

    Hadn't heard of this brand until I saw these. They are damn close to mint, the shoe laces weren't even put on. eBay results look promising for this specific model in this condition. Not Alden shell promising, but worth a pick up. Also came with shoe trees. They're a US 10. The 12B written on the sole is in reference to the price.

    And finally, blown away that the first time I've seen this brand was at some podunk thrift. No idea how this made it here, but it's ancient. 4/1 DB with WTF lapels, unvented, yadda yadda. Somebody out there collects early CdGH+. It actually looks really close in age to an Issey Miyake blazer I found about a month ago in a different part of the city.

    Shit, that was a nice jacket. I have monkey arms, sue me.

    Jeans are real. Also probably so dated not worth the flip. $30 maybe?
