    Given the relative paucity of replies to these posts, I'm curious if there's interest in me continuing to highlight items from my collection.

    Absolutely. I've been watching but not posting. Also, you'd be surprised at the number of lurkers.

    I certainly like looking. You are a crazy man to have room for all this stuff. My current closet is only 2' wide.

    This necktie is interesting. LBJ used to favor these hand-painted ties with pictures of bosomy women.

    I've long heard that about LBJ, but I've never been able to find a photo of him sporting such a tie.

    Thanks. Another vintage Brooks Brothers item. This one's a herringbone chesterfield overcoat dated March 31, 1937, for Col. T.H. Barton.

    Never mind getting a chance to wear the coat, do you ever wear the western shirt and neckscarf? Thank you for sharing.
