    Unexploded WWII Bomb

    I believe it was to some extent. AFAIK at least some German air-dropped sea-mines and some British bombs had devices to defeat any de-fusing attempts on duds.

    Vintage Eyeglasses

    Thanks for the input, guys! The reason I asked was that a friend of mine really hurt her eyes last summer with those super-cool holy-grail vintage 1960s shades; for some reason I was hoping that glass lenses vs. plastic might make a difference. BTW, I found out an easy (but very, very inexact)...

    Vintage Eyeglasses

    I'm not sure if this is the right place to post about vintage sunglasses; if it isn't please point me to the proper thread. Does anyone know if there's any rule of thumb whether vintage aviator sunglasses, i.e. WWII an-6531 type shades with glass lenses have any kind of UV protection? AFAIK...

    Backpack / Satchel Convertible daybag

    Those don't look bad at all! I kind of like the Stanton Heavy Grade backpack, and it's not too expensive, either. The Fairford leather satchel with backpack attachments https://cotswoldhipster.com/collections/backpacks/products/the-fairford-leather-travel-bag-with-backpack-attachments might fit...

    Backpack / Satchel Convertible daybag

    I admit it's a far cry from the elegance of a leather saddlebag, but I hit a dead end whichever way I think about it.

    Backpack / Satchel Convertible daybag

    The Fjällräven Foldsack looks like it might be the ticket, at least for my needs: https://www.fjallraven.com/shop/fjallraven-foldsack-no1-F24210-navy/ It looks very much like your generic 1940s-1960s army haversack, and the big flap and waxed fabric should make it sufficiently waterproof. The...

    Backpack / Satchel Convertible daybag

    I had to switch to a backpack a couple of years ago simply because wearing a bag over one shoulder would cause back-pain after a short time. I found a retro-looking Jansport canvas rucksack that I loved to bits, but of course it doesn't have any compartments and I soon found out It would need...

    Men's Cologne / Men Of ( STYLE ) THE FEDORA LOUNGE What Are You Wearing ?

    I suppose it is because smelling senses and the sensitivity for fragances vary a great deal from one individual to the next. I, for instance, have a finely developed smelling sense, and it is especially acute in respect to body odors (not nice if you use public transport). My wife doesn't notice...

    Need help to buy Wrangler Jeans

    There are a couple of Ebay sellers as well who seem to regularly ship to Europe, and who don't charge that much for shipping. I would expect to pay somewhat less than 50 Euros including shipping to Germany.

    Wrangler Unwashed 13MWZ

    And you can even get 35"-waist sizes, whereas practically all others seem to go 33, 34, 36, 38.

    Wrangler Unwashed 13MWZ

    They are fine to wear over engineers or Pecos boots, but you could just as well tuck them (at least into engineers) if you wanted to.

    Wrangler Unwashed 13MWZ

    I love mine, too, but wish they were somewhat wider in the leg. Would that be the relaxed fit ones?

    Recently picked up a vintage Navy bridgecoat.

    This being an officers' (and chiefs') coat I'd venture a guess that the hole on the left side is for the sword. Good luck googling A. Anderson, you'll find a ton of references to Johnny Valentine ;)

    Men's Cologne / Men Of ( STYLE ) THE FEDORA LOUNGE What Are You Wearing ?

    You cannot go far wrong with Old Spice, but there's more exciting stuff out there to try. Brut Faberge is one of them, but as with all things fragrance it all depends very much on your own body-odour. I ended up smelling like one of those soapy things they put into urinals. As I love citrus...
