P.S. photos – Sept.’14

Here’s some P.S. like photos from these days…

Salad-UDON. Need vegetables.

p1

Hamburg-DON. Love it w/fried egg.

p2

Kitty filled with strawberry jam.

p3

@ deli counter on a gas station. Vino?

p4

Cloud view from the station.

p5

Not bad? NO…it’s good. A twisty copped idea from Royce’s choco-covered potato chips?

p6

WHY?

p7

Into Zippo again….beat-up ones must look especially great with clean tailored suits or tweed jackets….or cashmeres.

p8

New ones don’t come with these…..TIMEs.

Vintage UPDATE

Wahington DEE-CEE, circa 1960s

f1

Hardly unearthed…..yet nothing special, nothing vintage…

f2

Without this label….

f3

and these logo’d buttons, it is quite conventional except real “moody” rounded pockets.

f4

I like these 45-degree’d cuff keyhole…..since the first time I saw them on their zippered jacket in 1970s.

f5

This jacket must have come with these label when new.

(This label is from different jacket from later period)

f6

Felt like Nylon Anti-Freeze from Mc…

f7

I remember my size was 44….back in 80s…so I acquired 44 again.

f8

It is kind of….baggy on sleeves. I don’t remember they had pleats at cuffs???
