    That original label "Mill Valley, California" tagged Banana Republic is the duster you're looking for. As you probably know, when The Gap (before it was just "Gap") took over and then later sacked travel journalists Mel & Patricia Ziegler (Banana's founders), the whole safari and travel ethos was chucked, sadly. If you've not seen it, here's a great site called "Abandoned Republic" that celebrates the early years, incredibly well-written catalogs, etc.: Abandoned Republic LINK

    You'll make some money selling as-is for resole, but I don't think it'd be worth it to have them resoled before selling.

    Sargent and Cheaney also made for Polo.

    Sick. I love finding ties, maybe because they're a one size fits all kinda deal and I know I always have the option of keeping them.

    Thanks, but I am pretty sure it's not a grenadine...

    Don't think it's a grenadine. It's a navy / black weave.
