    Fantastic tie haul Hans! Keeping the rep stripe with the H's for yourself, or is it a bit much for you?

    One stop today before work, Peal and Co for BB, with handwritten size on the insole. Are these actual vintage P&C or someone else? Soles say Super Prime.

    Those Peals are C&J. The soles are replacements.

    A couple of cool finds.

    1. A Hudson's Bay Company crewneck sweatshirt. NWT. Made in Canada. Are they still a legit company, or have they gone the way of Abercrombie?

    2. A cotton peacoat by Ships. Like new. Made in Japan. Any info on this brand? I found their website, but I have no other details on them. Fits me well, and very well made, as per the norm for most made in Japan pieces I've seen.

    Found a set of cool black cufflinks in a little jewelry case with four little dot things (I guess for buttonholes?).

    I also found a 1970s Phase Linear 2000 Series II preamp with the walnut case. It looks like it was well taken care of but I don't know if it operates 100% yet. I'll know this weekend. I always wanted a Phase Linear stereo component in the '70s but couldn't afford one at the time.

    I'll post pics when i get a chance.

    Cool find on the Ships. Not absurdly high MSRP but I bet that jacket cost $400-$500.

    HBC, which started in 1670, is the oldest commercial corporation in North America and one of the oldest in the world. It's still going strong though they have changed hands a few times. They're currently undergoing a rebranding to shift them into a higher-end department store retailer here in Canada. The t-shirt's probably not worth anything to flip but if you like it, wear it.

    ^ Valentino is real.

    Heres a quasi thrift fit pic, the 1970s BB tie is from this weekends haul. Fitty cents!

    And a Trafalgar belt from the 250 belt haul last fall.

    They're called "studs" and yes they're for the button holes. Sounds like you got a complete set, which I have yet to run across at the thrifts (the handful I've seen have been missing a stud).

    That reminds me, I recently thrifted a tux shirt that fits me better than the old one I've had for years and have outgrown by a smidgen. Not really worthy of pics in this thread (Joseph Abboud) though it is pretty decently made of Egyptian cotton, fits perfectly, and was $5. I looked at tux shirts at the mall last month and it was a two-hour exercise in frustration.

    Not for everyone, but easy $$$. Even if you put them in a single 10 item lot for $400, they should go SUPER fast. I would think twice at the $15-20 range, BUT prob buy them all if actually MINT
