I'm unloading my 1930s original vintage leather collection as I'm moving to a new location where such an abundance of clothes would be a hindrance.
This is my core collection of 1930s originals, the best of what I have been able to procure over many...
I'm offering up for sale six vintage hats that have one thing in common:
The condition is that of a time-travel souvenir. Except the Foster Brs Bowler has a beautifully aged, supple sweatband.
All hats are size US 7 1/4 and will fit a 57.3-57.5cm head best.
Best case scenario would be that...
This is an older, nicely broken-in Barnstormer tagged size S which equals size 36 in Aero's Barnstormer sizing which, as you probably know, is larger than their normal 1930s models such as the 30s halfbelts.
This one I have already listed on ebay, auction ends in just over two days.
Bought this from the Aero sale page back in 2019 as new and Apprentice-made.
Never worn, safely hung in closet ever since.
Excellent condition inside and out.
Olive twill cotton liner. Brass hardware.
Very nice shade of brown chromexcel with warm-reddish undertones.
Very good stitch work...
I bought this from the Aero sale page in 2019, see screenshot at the bottom of all the images below. If you know the model, then you know.
Interestingly, Aero sold this jacket as "goatskin". And I thought these had been made in jerky horse. Of course I haven't handled a lot of jerky hides nor...
This is the original Aero and Levis collaboration Thunderbird jacket that used to have the Thunderbird screenprint on the back. I removed it carefully with acetone and fed the hide with a colourless cream. The result is really good in my opinion.
I was going back and forth between keeping and...
The 1942 model of Eastman in size 38 regular.
Bought from the original owner who barely wore it. Hung in my closet ever since, lovely jacket, reason for selling is I'm moving house and need to downsize, plain and simple.
Condition is excellent. Very minor and very few chips off the coating of...
Montecristi hats blocked by Art Fawcett back in ca. 2014
These are high count and of clear ivory colour. I've been off the market for nearly a decade for these, not sure if there are any master weavers left who do these high counts. They take several months to weave one body.
If you've done any...
All of these are in Art's LITE beaver felts.
All of these are blocked on the 52 type block that Art had been using for nearly all of my VS hats.
The brim width is also 2 3/8" across all of them, as before.
All of these are practically unworn (too many hats...).
The width of the ribbon is...

This one came from their third year in business when Albam (London) concentrated on vintage styles. The perfect heavy shawl collar with the looks of the old hard-finished wool but made in cotton (it's nearly impossible to find heavy wool knitwear with that level of fiber integrity aka no fluff)...
