    Banana Republic safari shirt -- M

    Old/real Banana Republic safari shirt Tagged size: M (suitable for a S/M, fits trim) I believe this was NOS when I purchased it, but I did wash it as there was some light soiling from storage (air dried on a hanger, not in a dryer). I believe it's never been worn, and it has the original...

    What Hat Are You Wearing Today 1?

    Thanks, all! RBH, not sure if I can make that, but I am returning to the South this summer. Future get togethers would be more possible after the move.

    ^By the way, your Florsheim made me think of this post about the EG Windsor. He makes something of the captoe wingtip design, which is essentially the same design your Florsheims have above.

    ^Hmmm. Bostonian hadn't occurred to me. I know they were rebadged with the Carroll & Co. store logo (I think Carroll & Co. still exists). I had thought maybe Johnston & Murphy as I've seen them with the overall width listed first (B/AA) rather than last as with, say, Alden (AA/B). They're great...

    I just picked up these vintage Carroll & Company suede brogues. I had expected English made when I bought them (on ebay), but I'm pretty sure these are US made. They have full leather suicide heels, and are partially lined in canvas. I'm quite pleased with them. Does anyone have any thoughts...

    A-1 Jacket / A1 Flying Jacket - The ultimate Golden Era flying accessory!

    ^Thanks, FF. The Goodwear is going strong. I wore it yesterday, in fact, until it got too warm for it. Although the same style, it's a very different jacket than the Bally. The Bally is tighter fitting, and unlined, a lighter jacket.

    A-1 Jacket / A1 Flying Jacket - The ultimate Golden Era flying accessory!

    I thrifted this Bally made in Italy reversible A-1 blouson some months back. The knits were riddled with holes, and had to be replaced. I finally took it in to get it repaired and cleaned at Arrow Fabricare . I picked it up today, and am quite happy with it. Retail would be somewhere in the...

    Men's DRESS BOOTS to suit all budgets.

    Pardon this self congratulatory post, but last year I won an Alden boot design contest run by Leather Soul Hawaii. The store did a special order run of them (now, alas, sold out). My idea was an American version of an English country boot. I'm quite proud of them. You can see them here.

    What Hat Are You Wearing Today 1?

    Thanks! It's a thick felt hat, with lining long gone and a moth bite. But I quite like the shape of it. I got it in a lot of eBay hats. It's the only one from that lot I still have.
