In a for certain “God the Wife is going to kill me” moment, I purchased this vintage Pendleton Overcoat at the AMVETS this evening. I’ve been looking for a longer overcoat for wearing over my sport jackets, and after being inspired by one of my new favorite tumblrs Broke and Bespoke, I thought I’d try my luck at the thrift shops. One of the biggest problems with second hand shops in Buffalo is you can have a difficult time finding anything that isn’t an x-large. At a 40, the coat fit surprisingly well and ever since our recent trip to O’Connell’s, I’ve been slightly obsessed with fur-collar overcoats. Certainly not for everyday use, but a very Dandy coat indeed.
Overall I was pretty happy with my purchase… especially since it was only $10 (which subsequently trumped my fear of the Wife’s wrath). It was snowing ever so slightly when I got home, so I snapped a couple of quick shots in the backyard for show. Click below for some detailed shots.
