Wowee!!!! This is an incredible piece right here, a piece of history! Authentic WWII South African Sam Browne Belt! Wonderful build, great brass hardware! Love it!
Oooooh Beautiful! The patina that has been worn into these Daytons is phenomenal! Suede and pull-up leather – Wicked buckle/strap feature. The long-lasting quality you would expect from the Dayton Boot Company. Size 42 Item # 11790 Currently priced at $149 and dropping. Come on…
Okay, people. These here vintage britches (try saying that three times fast) have a patina of age, a patina of wear, and a patina of mystery. Despite their age, which is apparent from every angle, the leather is still soft, thick, flexible, and wearable. You’ll be wanting to put them on and wear them for the next 70 years.
Let’s answer the burning question … Are you too big for these britches? Or too small? Or just right?
Exactly a 38 inch Waist (Fashion size 36?). Thighs 26 inches. Some booty room. Just below-knee length, depending on where you keep your knees. High rise (of course).
Starting price $250.00
Breeches Era: From our research, we think West German, WWII or only slightly later. (possible Pilot’s uniform)
“Zipp” brand fly zipper.
I’m not usually a big fan of brown leather (all black, all the time. Dress to depress) but one look at this Comet and I’m a believer. That patina! That beautiful, shiny patina!!! This particular shade of brown is probably best described as a combination of “melty milk chocolate” and “obscenely expensive mahogany furniture”. Pretty amazing.
Men’s Large, with cute zips. This is one of those tried-on-twice jackets, so it’s essentially brand new; still has the Vanson tag and everything. It retails over $700 CAD, but we’ll let you have it for $589 or less.
(Shoutout to our handy dandy folding chair for being such an exceptional model for this photoshoot.)
Simmons Bilt of Scotland is all about making the holy grail leather jacket — the one you’ll own forever and remember for even longer. Something that is a precious item: wearable art. This is a contemporary jacket, model “The Fortune Hunter”, modeled after the explorer’s…
These brand-new, unworn Frye boots have been through a lot to be together. Their parents tried to keep them apart. Their clans and tribes were rivals for the podiatrical love of the buying public. Everyone said it would never work; that this was a pairing doomed from the start. “You’re too different!” They’d wail.
But they persisted in their desire. They said they felt the love for each other in their very soles. They knew they could counter on each other. They didn’t need to toe any old line.
They knew they were perfectly right for each other. And left. Also they were left for each other.

Brand new, unworn.
(The price of a boring old perfectly matching pair would have been about $400 CAD)
(Plain language: These boots are both brand new, both exactly the same brand, size, leather type, and warm brown colour. The lasted toe shape is identical, as is the heel height and shape. The styles of the uppers, however, are somewhat different.)
As so often happens, a carload of consignment leather and boots just arrived this morning as we opened the store.
We lined up the boots (all sizes) and stacked the leather (mostly pants and chaps, some jackets), and now we’re going through it all to find out what we’ve got here.
I’m excited, aren’t you? I wonder what we’ll find….

These MOMA boots sell for about $500 US new, and I can see why. They are FANCY. They are comfortable (of course I tried them on!) They are leather lined, and fit your feet the way Billy The Kid’s gun holster fit his favourite six-shooter.
If you’re ever on your way to the Wild West, take these boots. They’ll save your life in a pistol-packin’ showdown, because the other cowboy will be staring your feet with his mouth open.
Size 42ish, Mens 9.5ish, womens 11ish.
