Some they got, some got away..

WwiianorakThis salmon colored anorak from WWII surprisingly wasn't snatched up by anyone ! StripedknittieBananavestbrimfieldBananavestbrimfield2BrimfieldBBshirtThis is one of the best Brooks Brothers shirts I have ever seen. I already own a few variations of this shirt by them, but thats not why I didnt buy it. I was beaten to it by the boys who were shopping for Ralph Lauren inspiration. I felt better when i saw that it was priced at $145. To make it worse, it was 14.5 (my size) and if all goes as it should, will be seen in a Rugby store near you. We can only hope and pray it wont be embroidered with skulls and flags all over it. These dealers make it way too easy, I cant blame these designers for not bothering to really dig, wether it be on ebay or our nations thrift shops. And by thrift shops, I dont mean WCGA or Stock.. Brimfieldhoodie I really liked the pockets on this guys pants and sweatshirt. Interesting how its not a full zip. Cant tell whats going on with the bottom of his pants, were they cut short? gathered? dont know, but they look good! His bag was super cool as well, but this is all you're getting.Crangi I like this shot of jewelry designer Phillip Crangi "shopping" in his green cuffed pants and green rod laversRpmbrimfield1 Dude from 45 RPM shoping.. I love sweatpants, I dont own a pair but have always wanted a pair. I really like how he paired them with rust New Balance, a flannel shirt and down vest !Rpmbrimfield2 Here with a trophy purchase ! I was watching forever to see who would become the lucky owner of this stripe painted oar.

Have never seen an orange one. Great way to layer in the winter and I find they especially come in handy in the Spring time. Check out his monocle. And as if the orange isnt enough, Check out this turquoise one.TurquoisechamoisBrimfieldcoupleSpendiesmailbagBrimfieldkhakimoccasinP1200780 I saw this fella carrying this here horse and asked if I could photograph it, He paid $400 and was "told" it was Pendleton. I didnt see a label anywhere, there was a tag on its tush, didnt say Pendleton or any company, just fabric contents and made in taiwan i believe. I hope it was at least made using Pendleton fabric but Ill never be sure.. Cool piece none the less.RpmtrophyBrimfieldpinksome more color out there in the fields.

It’s spring; time to put our winter gear away but you can still wear a fur-felt hat, and welcome straw.
’bout to go off right now.
Too many fellas have been wearing the worst hats lately. These stingy brimmed hard looking things. Every hat is the same shape, no movement. like my dad’s london fog rain hat. In every possible fabric- plasticy looking white or cream straw hats with generric black bands. The straw hat of yesterday bought while on vacation has been replaced by the $9.99 version at MJ or Canal Street I saw so many during the winter- fools, When you can wear fur felt, {in the cold winter months in NYC}why would one wear a hat that the wind breezes right through? Because you saw Britney or Justin wearing one? LA’sinfluence in NYC is giving me an ulcer.
Don’t tell me you have not been seeing guys wearing t- shirts with scarves…or even gloves and a t-shirt! Or, my least favorite- the tuck… what is going on with guys tucking any pant into almost any footwear?
all winter i saw guys with their skin tight jeans tucked into untied boots.. and a just hoodie or light jacket when it’s snowing! I know we are not in Maine, but we’re sure not in LA LA Land
