I took an extended break after holiday season but I am back! It’s been to long!
A few updates….

Hi AAAC Team,

Hello Team AAAC,
I stumbled upon these excellent condition, lightly used, size 8.5 D, AE Canterbury’s yesterday and figured someone in the brotherhood could use a pair of great shoes on their feet in which to walk through these uncertain times.
The heels and soles show minor wear and the...

Hello AAAC Bretheren,
I am attempting to break from my pack rat ways and part with some sentimental items I have been lugging around for decades.This is not easy for me, but it is ridiculous to carry scraps of every event I attended

The are all 100% silk, hand made in the UK, and retail for over £100 new.

The hat is an Orvis fedora. The shirt is a vintage 1960s LL Bean cruiser, the trousers are a wool US army surplus from the...
I had a few hours to kill between brunch and a large Italian dinner, so I dropped by the Bata Shoe Museum in Toronto. Well worth a visit by anyone interested in the history of shoes.
The focus on modern footwear was heavily skewed toward women’s shoes, but interesting nonetheless.
Hi AAAC folks,
I had the pleasure of visiting Kingpin’s Hideaway, a vintage clothing and accessory shop in Toronto yesterday.
The owner, Jonathan, was extremely helpful and the store is chock full of very cool items spanning the 20th century. He appears to specialize in hats and has a wide...
Since my return to the US, I have set up a small antique/curio business for fun. I frequent local estate sales searching for unusual decorative objects as well as vintage men’s clothing items. Some I keep, some I unload on eBay. Unfortunately, I keep far too much and list far too little. I am...
Good day AAAC brotherhood,
As promised, I stopped into our local Trader Vic’s for dinner last week and will share a few photos.
I am a huge fan of establishments of long standing, since in this day and age of rapid restaurant turnover, having a restaurant stay in business for 10 or more years...
I have a pheasant shoot in South Dakota scheduled for the week prior to Thanksgiving. My wife,
who has never visited Canada, would like to take a few days prior to the shoot to visit the “Great White North”.
Our local in the Dakotas makes a 6-7 hour drive up to the Winnipeg area an easy reach...

A beautiful example of vintage Holland & Holland field...
I have a pair of tweed and leather Orvis trousers I recently purchased for myself at an estate sale listed on eBay. These trousers, as far as I can tell are new. I can't see that they have been worn or cleaned. Perfect condition.
These trousers are double pleated. After trying...

I am not in the used clothing business, but I do a lot of thift shop diving. On Saturday, I was at a charity shop in a local Methodist Church when I discovered this amazing tuxedo. It is far too small for me, but I could not pass it up. Someone at AAAC could certainly use it. It is one...
