Vintage 100% Vicuna Coat Jacket by Ganz Bros of New York - Double Breasted Peak Lapel - Forstmann

I managed to score an amazing true vintage 100% vicuna jacket the other day at a thrift store.  I am now auctioning it on eBay, there has been considerable interest, and the auction ends shortly.  This is a piece that was commissioned by a Mr. Leach and completed in 1953, so the jacket is 60 years old!  There are a few minor flaws, but nothing a cleaning and a couple quick stitches can't fix.  This is why I go to thrift stores.  So much softer than cashmere.


On the Hunt: Suede Loafers - Alden, Crockett & Jones, Sid Mashburn, etc

Alden loafers are produced not too far away from me in Eastern MA.  I have had a number pairs over the past few years, but the pair I am currently looking for is a suede pair of loafers.  Brown snuff suede is great, and in a loafer form is awesome.

Alden $472 @ The Shoe Mart

Crockett & Jones Harvard $595 @ Ben Silver

Suede Loafers $295 @ Sid Mashburn

Tod's Gommini $425 @ Nordstrom
