photo-15-10-2016-15-18-42

From my investment collection comes this pair of perfect deadstock Lee 11-Z dungarees. Made in the USA, sanforized denim, size 38×34. Never worn, never hemmed. Awesome for that super-baggy Nigel Cabourn look! The cardboard has a torn corner, see photo. Triple-stitched legs and Talon 42-zip. Most likely from 1975, going by the “75” on the size label, but could be anywhere from mid 60’s to 70’s something. A similar pair was recently sold in Japan for over 500 pounds. Best offer over 150 can enjoy these timewarp dungarees. To frame and display or wear!

Fjällräven Expedition down jacket

2016-01-04 13.59.19

Fjällräven Expedition down jacket. Arguably one of the best down jackets you can find. Double layer of down with no seams going through means the insulation is second to none. The perfect jacket for standing around waiting for the train in icy wind. The hood keeps you headphones nicely insulated. Snuggle up for the “back to the womb” feeling. Sadly global warming and no more commuting means I don’t get to enjoy this one like I used to. Not the best jacket for cycling in, unless it’s -25, when it’s perfect (been there, done that). Asking 249 pounds for this classic Swedish goodness.

NNO7 Peacoat Blackwatch

NN07 Peacoat in blackwatch style pattern. Wood buttons, quilted lining, corduroy details. Zipped pocket inside. Throat latch for extra protection. Size XL, xx P2P. Served me well on the cold days for a couple of winters! Asking 60 pounds.

NN

NN07 “Derek” shirt. Checked cotton. Very sparingly worn. Size large. Retailed at around 120 pounds, asking 25 pounds.

barbour shirt

Barbour cotton shirt with corduroy elbow patches. Worn once, briefly. Usual Barbour quality. Super soft cotton. P2P 21″, a regular fit medium. 35 pounds. Retailed around 150 pounds.

acne microcord shirt

Acne khaki micro-corduroy shirt. Super Swedish button-down quality, right down to the corduroy covered buttons. Very nice shirt. Worn a couple of times. Size 50, P2P 23″. 35 pounds. Retailed at over 150 pounds. Proper Scandi-quality and steeze for silly money.

Vintage Helly Hansen rain gear

This is authentic Helly Hansen rain smock and trousers from when they actually made it in Norway. Pretty decent condition for it’s age. The patina could no doubt be cleaned off, if desired, though for the rugged fishermans look it should definitely be retained. Slight burn mark by the front lacing, most likely from a rugged fishermans pipe. Size medium/48-50. Asking 95 pounds.

Fatigues of unknown origin

I’ve no idea of the background of these fatigues, but they are without doubt some of the most detail rich and well designed fatigues I’ve come across. The only marking is a small tab with “44” in the waistline. Apart from that they are strenghtened in the seat and knees. Hems can be buttoned close, buttons for braces, buttoned pockets and the waist can be tightened. The only downside is that they are too small for me! Great patina as well, so it won’t look like you just bought a pair of fresh ones. Waist 28″, inseam 29.5″. Will make someone very happy at 65 pounds.

Vintage army wool trousers

img_2415

Vintage melton wool trousers from the Swedish army. Thick, solid wool in typical army quality. High rise, lots of butt-room and huge side pockets. Regular pockets bags in sturdy cotton twill. Metal buttons on fly and for braces. Leather buckle to snug up the leg openings. Get top notch originals before the repros hit the market! No lingering odours. 33″ waist, 16″ rise and 31″ inseam. Asking 50 pounds a pair.

Superior Hipster Harris Tweed jacket

img_2483

On offer here is a super duper rare Superior Hipster two-button blazer in Harris Tweed. It has the wear patterns and internal damage that only comes through a long and hard life. When it came into my collection I subjected it to the sort of mild and caring wash that is met with scorn by US preppie tweed afficinados (i.e. in a bucket of warm water and wool detergent), so it is now nice and clean. Usual detailing and so forth. No size marked, though I measure it to xx” P2P. If you have a beard, a fixie, tight jeans and need that final feature to take you to the next level, this is probably it. This jacket has more of that unmentionable something than most of us accumulate in a lifetime of trying. I’ll let it go as is, needing some careful needlework, for 75 pounds. Or you can have it for the asking if you buy another jacket. You will have to convince me that you will be able to rock it properly though. And I am mostly being serious here, ok? 🙂

WDDS1XXX “Roughage Super-RAW-Indigo”. A coarser grade of cotton with a great indigo slubby weave. These are like the original Roughage, but after weaving they have been garment-dyed, and dyed using indigo paste, for the ultimate deep indigo colour. They feel quite dry to the touch now and are surely the ultimate scarf for the dedicated indigo freak. Only 5 available. 65 pounds for this one, due to the extra work and expense involved.
