Here’s an excellent vintage US Air Force tee shirt from the post World War 2 era. Looks to be in great shape too. $212 seemed like a lower selling price than I would have expected. Either way, it’s a great shirt. Here are the auction details:
These vintage Ray Ban Aviator sunglasses are my personal favorites. I don’t think you can purchase a better pair of shades for this upcoming summer season then the 12k gold filled, made in America version of the Ray Ban Aviators. Here’s a quick history of B&L Ray Ban from Men’s Health:
“The history of the Ray-Ban aviator dates back to 1929 when General John MacCready, a US army Air Corps lieutenant, commissioned a team of technical design experts to create army pilot goggles that would stop his men suffering headaches and nausea caused by glare at altitude.Originally known as ‘Anti-Glare’, the glasses were soon rebranded to emphasise how this new accessory could effectively block (Ban) sun rays (Ray). With foresight, the company saw an opportunity to bring their frames to the masses, and in 1937 the Ray-Ban Aviator was born, becoming an instant classic. A status they’ve retained ever since..”
In 1999 Ray Ban was sold to Luxxxx……..ugh. Nevermind. I’m begging you – buy vintage Ray Ban’s.

Block Bilt was producing some gorgeous leather jackets in the 1930′s and 40′s. You can see another example of this jacket here. I’ve got a hunch that the massive asking price most likely drove away some of the biggest potential buyers forcing the seller to settle on the sale price of about $1,000. That sale price is a guess because we don’t have access to the exact sale amount.

Wow. What a sweater. So, if you’re like me, you love yourself some amazing vintage shawl collar cardigan sweaters! This one is no exception. No doubt it would have sold for a better price in the autumn season – it’s a strange time to be selling such a great winter item. Selling this item in the early fall would have raised that price to $800+ I’ve gotta believe. Looks to be in terrific shape – all it’s buttons exist and there doesn’t appear to be any holes or snags.
