1940s Canadian Tropal Coat

http://www.ebay.com/itm/271731865127
This vintage coat was the Canadian version of the English Tropal coat. While the British versions were originally insulated with sheepskin, and later kapok, this is lined with a green pile. The coat is single breasted, with a wide overlap and internal windflap to keep out the harsh North African winds. The oversized collar flips up and latches for extra protection. The buttonholes are leather backed for durability and the collar is wool faced. The lining is removable via Newey snaps.

Chest (pit to pit): 26″ (doubled = 52″)
Shoulder to shoulder: 20″
Sleeve (shoulder to cuff): 27″
Length (base of collar to hem): 46″

1960s Winklepickers by Ritchie Deluxe

http://www.ebay.com/itm/271160095555

These vintage shoes were made in the 1960s.  They are marked Ritchie DeLuxe and Genesco. They are a cap toe winklepicker design, with extremely pointed toes and a cuban heel.  They have leather soles and nailed heels.  The heel lining on the right shoe is a bit loose, and there is a small punch through the leather in that shoe, both visible in the shot showing the text inside the shoe.  They are stamped a size 8D on the footbed.  From the amount of wear on these, I’d say they were tried on once or twice, but never actually worn, as even all the text on the sole is legible. The sole measures 12″ heel to toe, and 4″ at the widest part.    Photobucket

G.A. Dunn green fedora

This one is long since sold, but is an unusual example. You don’t see too many green felts, to begin with. This one has delicate ventilation holes, a light colored sweatband, and a fancy bow. It appears that at some point the hat was reversed, maybe to even out wear so as to avoid a hole at the pinch? The model is “The Polo”.
