Rolling Dub Trio Coupen workboots, size UK10/EU44/JP28

I’ve finally come to the conclusion that my beloved Coupens arrived with the wrong size marked on the box.

Lovely lovely boots that will last a lifetime. Read more about them here. They cost about 550 pounds in Tokyo, 900 in London. Asking 375 pounds.

Vintage wool cricket jumper, size medium

Stunning wool cricket jumper from pre-1947, as verified by the maker, Alain Paine. No smells or wear, minimal pilling. Alain Paine also supplied George Mallory with knitwear on the ill-fated Everest attempt, so there are some cool historical connections here! Asking 79 pounds.

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

A perfect pair of deadstock Lee 11-Z dungarees. Made in the USA, sanforized denim, size 38×34. Never worn, never hemmed. Awesome for that super-baggy look! Still with the cardboard attached. 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-’60s to 70’s something. A similar pair was recently sold in Japan for over 500 pounds. Asking 150 pounds or best offer for these timewarp dungarees. To frame and display or wear!

Rare vintage Irish Combat Tunic field jacket from 1989

Hard to find much info on these, but they are rare on the ground as the Irish army not keen to let them get into civvy hands. Well used, great patina. Lots of pockets, quality zips, throat tab and no buttons missing. Makes a nice change from the M65 style! Tricky to measure due to technical construction, but roughly 22″ chest. Asking a firm 100 pounds.

Norwegian-made wool cardigan, size XL

It’s been a while now since Norway had anything resembling a garment industry. Here is a time warp, deadstock, new-with-tags, wool cardigan that was actually made in Norway. Maybe not everyone’s picked herring, but will certainly make the right man very happy. Not least warm in the knowledge that he’s wearing a piece of history. Asking 75 pounds.

Very well constructed with navy blue cotton lining, YKK zips, proper hood and can be closed up everywhere relevant to keep the wind out. Perfect over a good wool sweater. Size medium, P2P measures 25″. Asking 50 pounds for this quality piece.

Something a bit special here.The first of the modern field jackets, introduced in 1943. This one is stamped1966, never issued, never used, no smells, completely New Old Stock. Stamped “Hæren”, for the Norwegian army. Not a smelly surplus jacket, no one has enjoyed it before you. Equivalent to a Japanese reproduction, but actually a real vintage piece, not something made yesterday. Size 50, consider it a medium. Will measure up the details. Asking 175 pounds for this timewarp piece, a fraction of what a repro made last week costs 😉

All items for sale are from my own collection, some carefully used, some forgotten in the closet. Everything I sell should be well described and well taken care of, but feel free to ask questions by mail if you would like further information. Or even make me an offer, OK?

If you’re wondering what the measurement P2P means, this photo illustrates it. Pit to pit, as in armpit to armpit. In inches. Multiply by 2.54 to change to centimetres, multiply by 2 to get a full chest measurement. A 20″ P2P fits a 40″ chest. OK? 🙂

    Hi Nick …. I’m interested in the Toast tweed trousers but might do myself some damage trying to get into a 32 waist …. could they be altered to a 34 by doing some fancy stuff with the back seams ? ( I’m sure there’s a proper name for this )

      Hi Jim, they actually measure 34 inches, even though they’re marked 32.

    Hey there. I take it, since here we are in 2019, that you don’t have any scarves left?

      Odd you should mention it, I actually came across the last three the other day. I’ll add photos shortly.
