    Anyone would like à proxy on a Paul Stuart Canada made overcoat? 44R fits True to size. No content tag but wool cashmere is my guess. Weighs like 50 pounds

    That thing is awesome!

    No pics of the stuff I kept, but here's the awesome jacket I had to pass on due to excessive pilling.

    Hand finished collars right?

    Weird thing is that all three pockets are fake. Not sure if that's a thing with their lower end line or what. Bizarre though.

    I'm actually in the process of making my first suit and was thinking of using brown flannel. Love it G.

    Haven't been able to get out much lately, but did grab a few things in the last week or so.
    Thought this was really fucking cool. Patina on this is crazy, looks like it went through hell, but the cuffs and hem are in perfect shape. Weird.
    Vintage LL Bean "Flying Tigers" bomber jacket. Available.

    Leave a Brioni behind? I don't think so. Both available.

    And this thing, all I could find was a store that apperently opened in 1985, though this jacket seems to suggest otherwise. Fully canvased awesomeness for $1.50

    Also, when people look up deadstock in the dictionary, this picture should be next to the definition. 70 years old motherfuckers. :humblebrag: Thanks again @capnwes for crossing another grail off my list. Been looking for a pair of antique boots since way before I was a member here.

    We've been treading in the same waters again. Although that store sucks, I really wouldn't waste your time.

    Yeah, but the jackets I found for me are wicked cool. Did you see those?

    And yeah, it's been mostly miss for me but I've found some decent shirts there for myself. Our good spot on the other side of the river is closed for renovations though :/

    Sometimes looking at this thread reminds me of looking at porn: feels good at the time, but in the end it gives you unrealistic expectations about what could happen in your own life. :teach:

    Pockets are probably just still sewn shut from when it was new. Some people never open them.

    I sure as hell would. Worth Ave in PB has some of the most high-end shops around (not sure where you're from and you might already know that). :)

    Not sure why I picked this up other than it looks never worn and was $2.50. Dickies 65% Poly/35% Cotton Jason Aldean "Night Train" Tour jacket. I am in Nashville area now...

    Sell the look, not the brand.
